June plan: in review

Remember that June plan post?  This is how gaming is in reality: things change at short notice.  You’ll notice my July plan is a bit different.

What happened?
The biggest thing affecting my game play were the announcement of Flex raiding in World of Warcraft and This makes me want to play WoW again.  I therefore changed my plans for June and focused on deciding who I wanted to raid with in Flex and getting that toon ready to raid.  This took a remarkably long time – I thought about playing my hunter, then my monk (who is only level 72) before deciding to go back to my Retribution Paladin, Morrighan.

Below is a review of what I did and did not do and some notes as to why.

Green = achieved
Orange = progressed towards
Red = failed to achieve
Black = never expected to achieve this month
