Guild Stuff – Time Value & Other People’s Time
Weekend was a bit busy for me. Its was my working weekend on the Job and thats 12hrs days at the Vaccine Plant with my 2+ hrs commute time. So focus WoW time does get limited sometimes and leveling also. But I do stuff daily to move ahead quest wise always. Sometime its Guild stuff.
So did some Guild stuff as we’re now up to 44 people in guild, most seem to be OK with a few in their 40’s. Guild is coming along in growth. Even had a group that was running RFK. Also helped some on their lowbie quests also. Limiting everyone to no more than 1 Alt’s because I’m limiting the guild size. I have no desire to running a large guild, I have too many things to do. Guild is mostly casual, laid back and leveling guild, just like me and I make it known to them when they join. Helping lowbies is OK, but often it can be a time waster for me, its that simple been in Outland. Easier for them to get help from someone their level or close to it. People do ask me for help on quests that they are capable of doing themselves that they often claim is too hard to do themselves because it takes them too long to do. Often I’m on a Outland quest and have to decide, do i find this thing I have been looking for for 30 mins or do I Hearth to Shattrath to port to Azeroth to help them. Get over it!
Though I am helping people when they sometime may ask. I find it not as productive use of my time. Its already limited due to work schedule, questing requirements, working on the blog. New people always want help as if to test you to see how much your guild will help them I wonder before they decide to stay or not. Do new people ever wonder if you have anything else to do? People always want to wait around and cut up on jokes and have to wait on people at AFK for food and such things. I often hate that with my time. I have a lot of patience really, but such things test my patience in groups or helping people. Guild can be fun if not for the silly humor. But i know in my mind when its time to quit having one, i will give it up if not for my peace of mind.
Its a big part of the reason I really enjoy playing Solo. The only person consuming up my limited play time is …. ME. I love to have solo playing friends and when we team up its also fun and productive. If I have to wait for a group quest to do too long I move on to something else and if I can solo it later if I not find a group then I will. But I don’t like waiting around. Maybe its because I’m a bit older and playing WoW than the usual playing crowd. The again, maybe its just me maybe thats like that.
