Funny thing I just got done emailing a friend I made in Wushu "I'm boarded has F*%$k" I hit a terrible lull about 2 months ago. I'm just now feeling it's terribleness. I'm character builder. I had all the skills I wanted and needed. I had/have a nice chuck of cash too, so two months ago I decided to rebuild.
In Wushu skill progression is time based similar to EVE. For those who play EVE imagine being at the pentacle of what ever class ship you've been running, then deciding it's time to go in the complete opposite direction. In a since this is what I've done in Wushu.
In Wushu there are skills (abilities) and there are internal skills (think platform from which to use your skills). I started leveling a new internal 2 months ago. By the looks of things, it will be another 2 months before the damn thing is complete. At that point I can begin regearing (you just don't go to the AH and find what you need in Wushu. I've been waring the same shin guards for 6 months...), and reskilling. At that point things will be live again. Until then it's the same old same, which is absolutely terrible being the type of gamer I am.
I've been spending most my online time literally in a cave (My internal strength cultivates faster here) training my skill. While others are going about doing their merry little thing, I'm living in a cave...
In Wushu you build for the future. These are your long term goals. When the future arrives, You'll be ahead of the curve. The problem is, for the first time, I don't have any short term goals. In here is the terrible lull.
Strange beast this AoW. I put myself in this spot. I'll be better for it when I'm done, but until then uhg for me. The game has not changed for others. This is the road I decide to walk, a terribly long road. Wuxia for real.
How can I hate it though? This is the price I have to pay for unique power. When I'm done, for the first time in all my years of mmo'ing, there wont be any other character remotely like mine. When someone says "OMG THAT'S AMAZING I WANT TO BE LIKE THAT" They will have to walk that long road too, if they can. But yeah, right now I'm pretty damn bored
