The Daily Grind: What's the first thing you do when you come back to an MMO?

Jef Reahard

I went back to The Secret World this past weekend, and it wasn't just for the double AP. It's been six months or so since I played seriously, and despite its flaws, there's no other MMO quite like Funcom's horror-conspiracy opus. And I've missed it!

Initially I was hesitant to come back because of the game's rather complex skill system. I figured that all of the new (to me) auxiliary weapons plus the fact that I'd be more than a little rusty at combat would add up to a frustrating experience. That wasn't the case, though, and I was back in the swing of things and knocking out missions left and right in fairly short order.

I spent some time tidying up my inventory first, though, as I always do when I return to an MMO after a long absence. What about you, Massively readers? Do you have any particular I'm-back rituals that mark your return to a game? What's the first thing you do when you come back?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
