The guild that I belong to is going to start raiding this week. And you know what? I am very, very glad that I am not joining them (yet). WotLK, for me, was ruined somewhat by the need to keep up with the group so that I could be ready when they started raiding. I had taken a week of holiday, and we all played until our eyes bled. This is much, much more relaxed. Yeah, I do feel a bit like someone who rides the short bus (tolerated perhaps, but not really a part of the group). But I’m enjoying the content. Kit is almost 84, and my paladin is 82. I have a baby worgen druid. And I’ve had the chance to explore, to fly around the old areas, to actually read the quest text and enjoy the trip.
It’s been wonderful.
