How To Be Productive While Raiding

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

There is a reason why the best gear in the game can only be acquired through raiding, and that’s because it takes a lot of coordination amongst players to defeat the raid bosses.

Pre-BC raiding was 20 and 40 man raids. That’s a lot of people to organize and delegate assignments to. Quite often, one or two people who didn’t show up or if they had to leave early meant the entire raid stopped for the evening. It sucked when that happened, and it’s for reasons along that line that I prefer not to raid anymore. The only time I will raid is if another guild asks me to fill in a DPS slot for them. Trying to adhere to a rigid, daily 4-6 hour schedule is a bit absurd. Basically, I have better things to do with my time.
