Remember this one? I just found it in on my harddrive together with a bunch of other WoW related things, old screenshots and what not. A huge bunch of the Daily Blink (a popular WoW comic some years ago) too, that I´m currently having having a big laugh about! Will share later.
It is as great as I remember it 🙂
Go placidly amid the trolls and rage,
And remember what peace there may be AFK.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with the blue posters.
Speak your concerns quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant,
they too have their story.
Avoid those who prove the Internet F#$%wad Theory,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare your guild with others,
you may become vain or bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser guilds than your own.
Enjoy your achievement points as well as your purples.
Keep interested in your own main toon, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of expansions.
Exercise caution in the Auction House;
for the listings are full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for low prices;
and everywhere your realms is full of those needing your flasks.
Take kindly the counsel of experience,
gracefully surrendering the role of the Noobcake.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in times of bad gear drops.
But do not distress with hatred for your guildmate’s off-spec.
Guild drama is born of jealousy and envy.
Beyond the confines of your computer desk,
be gentle with yourself.
We are only the inhabitants of a virtual world,
no less than the NPCs and enemies spawned;
it is the same MMO for every single one of us.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt your raid wipe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with WoW,
whatever you conceive the game to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of progression keep peace with your soul.
With all its balance, grinds, and imperfections,
it is still a beautiful game.
Strive to be happy.
