After a bit of a break, I returned to the game when the Fableds came back. I enjoy that time of the year. Fableds are over now, and I returned to working on epics for all of my level appropriate chars. I am currently trying to spawn Quillmane for the Mage epic. Three days, and no Quill. I have the place holder, but no Quill.
Today, an old army buddy dropped by during my attempt to spawn it. I redirected the computer screen to the TV while we chatted. After a while, he asked me what this was all about. I explained epics and how the items are obtained. After another 10 min or so he asked why anybody would want to play a game like that. He said to him, it was like the textbook definition of tedium.
You know, he is correct. What is the point of these timesinks? It is easy to nail down the placeholder for Quill, but endless tracking and killing every 60+ seconds for hours is mind numbing boredom. There is no skill involved whatsoever....
So, why am I still hooked somewhat on EQ?
