I want to feel less detached, but it'd be too hard for me to break the habit of just moving to a mob, pressing space and moving to the next mob after I was done with the first.
This game does have a lot of nice things to it though. I like the 3-character team concept, along with the variety of characters(stock and UPC), and the setting. I had just finished Gracielo's quest path and I enjoyed that too; I got to learn more about a character that I was drawn to(even though it was his looks I was drawn to >_>) and I actually got into that. It changed my opinion of one of my favorite characters, mostly because of what happened to Camille.
So I'm probably gonna be taking a break, and normally when I "take a break" from a game that means I'll slowly stop coming on until it's been months since my last log in. It's what happened with Trickster, but unlike Trickster I probably wouldn't mind coming back to this game at some point to see how much has changed and whether or not I want to play it.
So I guess this really isn't a "Good-bye!" but a "See ya later!". XD
Defining later might be a problem though. >_>
This detached feeling of leveling you feel is pretty common in SotNW. You're in the middle-part of the game, splitting the lands of noob and vet. It IS really boring at that time, but it makes it easy when you just AFK all day and do homework. It makes getting through all the tedious parts a bit easier. Heck, I do that quite a bit; only to active play when I want to bring out my top-characters.
It takes time, really, but breaks are really good in between.
Anyway, hope you come back 'cause we'll all miss you and your random chats in the guild. Wish you all luck in whatever you plan on doing, and don't forget to drop back sometime~
(Oh, and quit losing your log-in info :>)
