That last post was kind of whiny. Sorry.
On the positive side, there are already twenty players in my guild at level 80 (and I’m not one of them). Most of them have been running heroics for gear. A few have done Naxx PuGs. No one has left the guild to go to more progression oriented guilds, as I was worried about earlier. Of the people who are not yet 80, at least 5 of them are “core” raiders from BC who know how to play their class. So we have a strong group forming.
We even have a new person in the guild who used to be in one of the top raiding guilds in the U.S., but decided to “go casual” in Wrath. It should be interesting to see his perspective on things.
Suddenly the question has been posed – are we going to spend time on 10-man raids or 25-man raids? I never really expected to have that dilemma. Its a nice spot to be in.
We just need a couple more healers to get geared up and we’ll be ready to dive in. I think we can even get up and raiding before Christmas. Woo-hoo!
