First, I am not questing in the new area because in short order the level cap with go to L95 and all that nice XP will be wasted and there's really nothing at the "end of the trail" to encourage me to go there. I'm pretty slow anyway and I can make the Hytbold Rebuild last - oh at least another 6 months. For 2 L85s. Then I have some alts I can run thru at 30% rested XP per day which seems according to other posts to be an hour or so of play on the account.
The new area may be sparse but Snowborne is D E A D. I don't even see "Bugud Up" anymore.
Second, my friends list is empty yet again. Nearly every update the list empties. Even creepside my friends list is bare.
Third, although on occasion I see someone return they don't stay. They come for a day or week and the it's Gone with the Schwinn.
A lot of the previous comments I think are spot on.
Whoever says “I” creates the “you.” Such is the trap of every conscience. The “I” signifies both solitude and rejection of solitude. Words name things and then replace them. Whoever says tomorrow, denies it. Tomorrow exists only for him who does not seek it. And yesterday? Yesterday is Kolvillàg: a name to forget, a word already forgotten.
