This is why it's good to reflect at the beginning of an adventure. My first foray into WoW was not noteworthy. I was happier in SL because I was having success. I didn't see the point of WoW, my skill set was negligible, so therefore, I wasn't having any fun.
Fortunately, there were assignments to do so I really needed to get back into the fray. I missed the class on Sunday, due to Fathers' Day activities so I went in on my own. There was OliveTree! Ah, a friendly face - even if she didn't look the same. Actually, she looked like me (except her hair was different). Still there were assignments to do and I couldn't linger for long. I embarked on my first quest, killed a Rockjaw Invader but I didn't know how I did it. I went up against one of the other bigger dudes and ended up dying. That was interesting - a cemetery and creepy music.
My son stopped in about this time and gave me a few quick tips about attacking. Soon I was attacking with some skill. I began moving up in levels and I discovered I was having fun. I learned how to sell goods and buy other things. I learned to follow the map which I'm sure was the point of the 4th quest I did.
In my earlier blog, I reflected on whether I didn't enjoy WoW because I wasn't successful. Today, I had success, I enjoyed myself and I understood the game better. What does that say about learning?
