A post in the official World of Warcraft forums has attracted much attention recently. Everbloom, a Night elf Druid on World of Warcraft's Feathermoon server, has managed to reach the maximum level 85 without killing a single mod. Everbloom pulled the feat off by only picking herbs, digging up bones and simply exploring the wilderness of Azeroth.
Like Everbloom, I hate games that require me to run, shoot, and feel under pressure. How much nicer is it to walk around at leisure, pick herbs and accumulate points that way. I often set up games on purpose in a way that makes it impossible for opponents to bug me while I'm slowly doing my thing. Life is full of stress, so if I find time to play, I want the game to be as stress-free as possible.
Sadly, I only find time to play maybe once every 3-4 months. Maybe I'll celebrate the end of the semester with one major bout of gaming.
