This is more of an update, but due to the nature of my actions, it’s much more permanent - after losing my archer (ST ninja armor + the ring, Void Bow, tshot, t13 bow, cbow, QoT, a single void quiver short of my dream archer) to the ice sphere from 2nd shatters boss (I shouldn’t have tried to solo), I emptied my vault, released my pets (all of them), deleted my chars and suicided my trickster w/o gear to mark the end of a chapter in my life. I enjoyed it while it lasted, but it’s truly not worth the frustration. Playing realm is like playing “getting over it”, but every time you fall down the mountain, you’re presented with a completely new set of obstacles, and you can never actually win - you never learn anything.
So, with that in mind, I bid you all farewell. I don’t even think I have it in me to come back for the beta test. To those who cared about me, and to the memories of those in this game which I cherished, may we meet again someday.
