I have gone through the “I am done with WoW and never playing it again” phases a few times in the past and I really had no last day hurrah. I always just quit and sunk into the background, fighting the need to play again. But if I truly knew there was going to be a last day of WoW forever for me there are a few things I would do.
First, I would get the email addresses, Facebooks, Twitters, anything I could to keep in touch with my friends on WoW. That is what I always miss the most and drags me back into the game, my friends. When you have been playing for as long as I have, you make a lot of friends and your common interests always are the same: gaming. With all the changes that happen with WoW and with gaming in general, there is always something to talk about with these friends. At first I was very anti-Real ID, but now I am glad I have it since I have been to many servers and have friends from all around that I am able to keep in contact with.
Secondly, I would sell everything. It would be like a discount blowout sale or I would just give away things to friends I knew they needed. I would hate to let things just sit on my character and rot. It seems like a waste to me.
Next, I would delete every character except Sarindre. Once all the stuff is gone, there would be no need for me to keep these alts just sitting there on servers. What is someone really wanted my name and I was just hoarding it for selfish reasons? I would keep Sarindre though, I know there is no way I could ever type “DELETE” into her prompt box.
Finally, I would say goodbye to everyone, log off, and uninstall. This would really reduce the pull the game would have on me because of all the hassle and patches they have with installing.
If it was my last day of WoW forever, I would miss many elements of the game, but mostly all of my friends. But I would have all of those good memories to look back on when I needed them most.
What would you do if it was your last day?
