The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm (Part 1)

Comments

“Shattering” is a powerful word. When something is shattered, it breaks into a thousand irreparable pieces. Even if you can glue it back together, it’s never quite the same again. It’s more prone to falling apart in the future. It’s usually ugly and misshapen. When something is shattered, it is never truly whole again.

Comments

July 2009 was the first time in almost 4 years my WoW subscription lapsed. I had already informally withdrawn from raiding, having seen the inside of Ulduar only once since its launch. I still remember my last moments online: finishing Argent Tournament dailies for the 100th time already. Feeling no more love for the game, I mounted my beloved Time-Lost Proto Drake and logged out right there, on the Argent Tournament grounds, never intending to return.

In that moment, hundreds of hours of battlegrounds, end-game raids, grinding mats, professions, mounts, reputation, achievements, felt like they didn’t matter anymore.
