Get better or GTFO
Yes, I know… I am on some sort of posting tangent… it happens when you decide to take up Archeology… my readers thank you Blizzard… or maybe they don’t… I dunno.
I want to touch on a comment I made in a previous post about getting better or finding a less hard core guild.
I am very fortunate that I am 10 man raiding with a group of guys that feel it’s bring the player, not the class/spec.
So far, with that mentality, we have accomplished quite a bit. The group was able to get server first Heralds title in Wrath as well as first kill on LK (again, 10 man)… this was with raiding maybe 6-10 hours a week… a far cry from a hard core raiders schedule.
What this means, as opposed to Hard Core guilds, we change our strategy to fit our composition and not the other way around.
We are melee heavy and we find ourselves deviating from the suggested strategy quite frequently in order to progress. Honestly, it makes the whole raiding and gaming experience that more fun. Hard Core guilds are all about progressing quickly and if that means you get benched for a fight or 2, you get benched for a fight or 2.
My point is don’t blame Blizzard. They really have done a good job balancing, what is left are raid leaders and guild masters that don’t actually take the time to dissect parses and go off general numbers or just look at a site like SoDps and decide to bring someone else.
If you are raiding with a guild like that, you are in the wrong place. Trust me, I am not the only lucky kitty to be in a good guild having success progression raiding.
Good luck, do what you can to improve your game, find a group worthy of your time and expertise. You will find that typically hard core guilds have to raid twice as much to find the same success as a dedicated group that knows how to strategize through diversity… and that is a much more rewarding experience IMHO.
Gives you more time to dig up fossils… ugh.
Just this kitties 2 cents, if I get to the point where I actually feel gimped I will let everyone know.
