I left my guild today.
The one I've been in for a year, the one I co-led for months and eventually led myself for a few months as well. The one I leveled with since Zul'Farrak. The one I ran Karazhan with, for the first time. I mouse over all my gear in Armory and don't see loot as much as I see items obtained from heroics and raids that I ran with my guildies. Each item has a story to tell.
More and more of those people have left the guild and I don't know, these past few weeks I've logged on, looked around, and realized I simply didn't know anybody anymore. So it was with a deep breath and a final sigh that I one-by-one kicked my alts and then /gquit.
I don't really know where I'm going next. I am, I suppose, a freelancer now. I'm not particularly interested in another guild at the moment largely because I am essentially unable to raid with any regularity, so I wouldn't want to promise myself to a new guild. I've considered making a "Casualish Level 70 Hunter LF Guild, Willing to Transfer" post on this blog to see what sort of interest I'd garner, but I also have a hard time envisioning myself leaving Silver Hand and my friends there (though I'd never say never), and yeah, I think I might wanna fly solo for a while.
It was a good year.
But you know what they say about all good things.
Best of luck, Entelechy.
