When I first started playng my druid, back in vanilla, I lucked into a guild full of druids. We had up to 8 in our MC raids, and even after we left the guild over time, we all stayed together, in a private chat channel, cheering each other on. Slowly but surely tho, after the past 4 years, folks stopped playing, and my army of druids was down to just me and my friend El. And eventually, I stopped playing her a year and a half ago.
But then, in a burst of energy around staving off the pre-expansion blues via seeing the Icecrown content from the Alliance POV, and getting my gnome to 80 so she can assist in the liberation of her home city, I picked the druid back up. And I found her a new home, with some of my favorite WoW tweeps/bloggers. My first night of raiding, what did I find? An army of druids! And this is how I knew she had come home again.
P.S. Please be sure to take part in this next week's topic -- suggested by me: What Should Give Guild Rep?
