Default You know you are gettig old when...

... mmo-champ news feed mentions tier 15 sets...


... you /boggle at the number...


... and start muttering about back in the day...

... when there were sigle-digit (!) tier sets,

... and you had to swim uphill naked through molten lava BOTH WAYS to get to the raid,


... and then you realize just how f*cough*ing long ago that was, and observe a moment of disgust for yourself for turning into an old fart.


And I thought it was bad watching other peoples' babies turn into people. >.<


Hope you all are well, although I expect many/most? of you are strangers by now.


Oh, and merry un-apocalypse! Yes... I'm perpetually 15 minutes late; given that apocalypses (is that the correct plural?) operate on a much grander scale, 15 days sounds about right.

I'm still here Kirsten...but that goes without saying. Hope you're doing well. I may be the last remaining active raider from the era in which you raided. I'm not sure. Member time lines blur together for me anymore.

Anyhow, thanks for checking in and don't be a stranger.

Well, I certainly remember Kirsten fondly. But I'm Chief Casual, not an active raider.

Sounds like we need to do a reunion tour of our glory days.

I could run a promo where any (ok most) old members can just re-join and raid!

And yes...Beast Mode goes very far.

Yeah, I was one of the 40% that was carried back in the day. Now that you guys are in 10 mans, I guess I can't fit in the cracks and go unnoticed anymore =/

Also, you know you're old when Kristen makes a thread about being old, and your time predates her time in the guild.

Order of the Chosen. Best. Guild. Ever. Well.... Only second to Defiant.
