I haven’t raided for about a year – more or less. I raided Naxx quite regularly, and the first half of Ulduar, but then got a bit bored of WoW and my raiding tailed off. It’s tricky to get back into raiding after a break if you have my kind of mindset of doing everything ‘in order’. Because I hadn’t gone through Ulduar completely, I didn’t feel like getting stuck into Icecrown Citadel. However, my lovely guild, Prosapia, were recently in Icecrown for heroic modes and achievements, and I was lucky enough to be around when they needed a healer. We managed every boss, some on heroic, so I now have my Kingslayer title (talk about being carried through content – I certainly was!)
My WoW enthusiasm perked up when Cata came out (well, the patch just before it, if I’m honest). It didn’t take me long to get Abedabun up to 85. And the tauren paladin I started at patch 4 is now 84. I have a couple of other new alts that I want to do the new level 1-60 quests with. But if that was it – I’d probably tire of WoW again quite quickly. So I’m happy that Prosapia is starting to raid Cata content. And I’m doubly happy that I’ve managed (just about) to gear up in time to join the ‘first team’. Actually – that’s a bit of an exaggeration, because I’m only first team until Shadowreach gets a new computer. And that suits me fine – I’m not sure how long I will last committing to raiding twice a week!
This was going to lead into a write-up of our first forays into Blackwing Descent, but I think this post is long enough already! At least I have a subject for next time 🙂
