How do you do it?
I'm at a bit of a loss right now, because I don't know a single person playing this game. I've almost always had people I knew playing, or at least people I knew that were going to come back. But right now, it's just me. No friends playing. No friends ever coming back.
I guess it shouldn't be that hard, considering I've been playing since Vanilla .. but when I look back, I see that I was never the one who looked for friends or guilds.
In Vanilla, I already had plenty of friends come over with me from EverQuest, and introduce me into a wonderful guild with awesome people. Some of those friendships lasted well into Wrath.
In BC, I still had some friends with me, and we managed to make a fun 10 man guild that did Kara and ZA.
In Wrath, I had more fun than ever before. Not only did I join one of the top guilds on the server with a couple friends, but I made lots of new friends, and even ended up leading a raiding guild of my own.
In Cata, I guess that's when it started going downhill. I was down to one or two friends, and we were just in those mass-invite guilds. It was still fun, because I had people I knew with me.
And now in Mists, all of those friends are gone. Not a single person I used to know is playing anywhere in the game. So right now I'm on a random server, friendless and guildless. I don't really know even where to begin. It's sort of depressing logging on every day and not seeing a single soul on your friends list.
So I guess I just wanted to share my story and get some advice on how to make things fun again.
