(yet another girl gamer post) Navimie at The Daily Frostwolf recently got me thinking again about the whole ‘feminism in gaming’ discussion. One of her observations was the she hasn’t seen much sexism in the people she plays with, and I’m currently in a similar position: the guild I’m with has always had a fairly balanced gender make-up and is comprised of mature/open-minded folk.

No big surprise to many, I’ve decided to step back from WoW generally and raiding specifically.

Feather embroidery I've just finished

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve found myself running out of things to do in WoW, outside of the time spent raiding and badge-capping each week. Glow’s pretty much run out of achievements outside of PvP. I’ve already got multiple alts that are LFR-able… but gearing them up further just for the sake of it is getting circular and pointless.
