Silence in the Forest

October 6, 2014

This has been a long time coming, but I didn’t want to write a “closing shop” post until I was relatively certain. The fact remains that all I can ever be is relatively certain that I have written all I want to write about World of Warcraft in this space, but I nevertheless wanted to provide my blog with some form of closure.

As many of you already know, I stopped playing WoW several months ago. There are many reasons for my decision, but the simplest reason and also the one that matters most is that I merely wanted to spend my time doing other things. While I was frustrated with the development team’s failure to deliver content at a more consistent pace, I would have continued playing and raiding with my wonderful 10-person team had I been interested in doing so. Unfortunately, I feel that interest has probably passed for me.

Though really, this is both unfortunate and fortunate, in that time spent away from WoW has been time I spend doing so many other things – working on my house, playing different games, writing, and so on. I tried out WildStar, which is truly a fantastic MMO, but I found that I am simply no longer interested in games that come with time commitments. And I’m Ok with that.

So before I turn off the lights and lock the door, there are a few thanks I need to give.

Thank you to everyone who has read Tree Heals Go Woosh over the years. Your engagement with my writing via comments and tweets was extremely fulfilling and appreciated. Particular thanks is due to the many people who have taken the time to comment, tweet, email, or otherwise reach out to me regarding my Mistweaver guides. I am so happy that these guides were helpful to you, and I hope they helped you enjoy the class as much as I did.

Thank you to Beru, Jasyla, Keeva, and Cynwise. Your writing was what inspired me to create my own blog to catalog my experiences with this game. One of my favorite parts of being a member of the blogging community was getting to know you (and others) on a more personal level, and I am glad that I can call you friends now.

I am not done writing and I am not done gaming. I have something in the works at the moment to give myself a new, more general space where I will be able to write about anything that interests me. In the meantime, I am always around on Twitter, and I currently co-host both the Justice Points podcast (on gaming) and the Live From Satellite 5 podcast (on Doctor Who).

Thank you so much for reading and good luck in all your travels,

    It’s been great reading your blog, Tzufit! I really appreciated your writing, and sent a few monk guildies here for some tips and help. Also big love for your stories about playing with your mom! I’ll be looking forward to checking our your new blogging project! 🙂

    I saw a new post from you pop up in my reader and I was excited. Then I started reading and got sad. But then I got to the part about starting a new writing space and I was back to being excited. It’s an emotional roller coaster.

    I’m looking forward to reading more from you soon, and I’m honored that I was one of the people who inspired you to start this blog. I feel like a whole generation of Druid bloggers is gone now (I know you were a Monk at the end, but I live in the past when it comes to WoW).

    I can completely relate on the time commitment issue, I feel much the same way. It was a big part of why I shut down Dechions Place.

    I’m glad to hear that you will be continuing to write elsewhere, I’ve always appreciated your insights.

    Bye Tzufit! You were always inspirational and still are – though I don’t really feel like you’d gone anywhere since I listen to Justice points. All the best with new writings and all those podcasts 🙂
