Ready to Rumble?

In Burning Crusade, I had just started playing in earnest as a Hunter ((Grimm Mk 1 was a warrior, don’t ask me what spec because I clearly had no clue even then!)). I just kinda joined in with the group once I got to level 70. In Wrath of the Lich King, we had a serious guild blow-up so nobody was ready to raid until after 3.1. In Cataclysm, Eff the Ineffable was still getting it together and we didn’t start raiding until around February, a few months after release of 4.0.3.  

So here we are in Pandaland, and I find myself a bit rushed.  Raiding starts this weekend, and until last night, I wasn’t even the right level!

In a way, I illogically resent the need to hurry.  I prefer to take my time, smell the Peacebloom, and take it all in.

But, nobody’s holding a gun to my head. I don’t HAVE to be in that first raid. I might not have a guaranteed place in the future, but that’s the price you pay for being less committed to raiding than your team mates.

So the truth is, I want to be there, if there’s a spot, and I made that choice without any coersion. So I should put on my big dorf pants ((Normally we don’t wear any under the tabard.)) and get as prepared as I can in the time remaining.

I’ll still have a chance to lollygag. Jasra, Flora, and Illume are all going to progress through the content a bit slower, though Jas may have to hurry a bit if the Bunnies start thinking about raiding in the near future. But that would be unusual, that’s one laid back group of peeps. 🙂

It’s pretty odd, by the way, to ding 90 and be nowhere near the final zone of the expansion. And I didn’t even start out with rested XP.
