RealID lets me play horde

As a GM, I tend to be very interested in the goings-on within my guild.  For that reason, whenever I am online I try to be on a toon that is in the guild.  It makes me visible so that the newer players can see that the leadership has a presence.  It lets me get involved in heroics or raids that get thrown together.  It keeps me available for questions and to solve problems as they arise.

For this reason, I barely play my horde character.  It always feels like I am avoiding my guild when I play him. I don’t check email or IM or Facebook when I am playing WoW because my computer is older, so I don’t want that stuff running in the background slowing things down.  When I am on my horde toon I am truly out-of-touch with the guild.

Now, with the RealID connection to the other officers, I know that they can get in touch with me if something pops up.  I’m not really “hiding” when I play horde.

The downside is that I’m not planning to let just everyone know my RealID info.  I’m restricting it to my close in-game friends.  I hope that I don’t hurt too many feelings if I refuse some RealID requests.

      The way you put up a Realid thing. Is go into your friends list. And type said persons email. Then they accept the invite. And you get to be a stalkerbot to said person (Thats my word shh)

    Oh so I have to give you my address? Okay that makes sense. I thought I had to enable something. Go update your blog.

    Yeah, it’s pretty cool for sure. I’m curious to see if server changes slow down with this feature, as far as people hopping to be with RL friends. Interesting stuff.
