Blaugust: Day 1!


We are finally starting! Today is officially the first day of Blaugust. I'm seriously wondering what I have gotten myself into, but hey, I signed up so let's make the best of it! Since the list of participating bloggers is huge (and I'm really unsure how to reflect this properly in my blogroll) here's a link to the nook on Anook.com: http://www.anook.com/blog/blaugust

The Job: Part 2
So I had my job interview yesterday and I actually  managed to get the job! It's a very simple job for only three-four weeks that mostly revolves around data entry but I'm superhappy I got it. I've been sitting at home for far too long and the chance to get out of the house and earn some decent money on top of that has lifted my spirits a lot. I will probably be very tired (I will be working a 32 hour week minimum) but it will be totally worth it. I will finally have some money to my name again and it's a bit of work experience I can add to my resumé. Anyway I hope this reignites my gaming fire a bit. I will have less time so I will have to make better choices what to do with that time.


Guild Wars 2
I finished off levelling through Caledon Forest a few days ago and am very pleased with how the levelling in this game has turned out. Compared to how it was at launch everything is much more smoothed out and easier to get into. I had to get used to the new specializations layout but in it's current form it's much better than it was.


I'm still amazed by some of the gorgeous environments in this game. A few of the vista's show hidden waterfalls like the one below. And I found a underwater organ you can actually play!


Gear progression is still a bit weird for me. I'm not a fan of the looks of the low level gearsets for this game. I guess I'm too used to either the clown combinations of WoW or the spectacular gear that FFXIV offers to people levelling up. All the gear you get here is brown and bland (luckily there's the option to dye it) and it all looks the same. It's a good thing the cultural gear for Sylvari looks absolutely amazing and I will certainly buy it once I have the level and the money for it. For now I'm rocking the awesome facemask look...
And here's to hoping that Kessex Hills offers a bit more gear variety!
