Massively Casual Tanking

Tales of a casual Death Knight in World of Warcraft

Patch 4.2 is out for a little while now, and tier 11 epics are coming in nicely.

My super casual guild has decided it wants to start raiding the old content (tier 11 raids) and is trying to get a raid team together. Apparantly our two beloved guild leader were hardcore raiders during TBC and LK, but due to I’m guessing time and duties got pushed into the non-raiding part of the game.

I’m not sure raiding is going to please me.
We’ve done Baradin Hold a couple of times, and are doing some regular Firelands trash runs. And suddenly you’re starting to get to know the real people behind the characters (on ventrillo). And their personalities. And oddities. And annoyances.

There are calm people, funny people, strange people … Then there are elitist people, impatient people, clueless people … Exciting times for the guild I’m sure.

My guess is at first lots of people are going to sign up for the raids, but the interest will slowely decline, as easier and better gear comes along with the Fireland dailies etc. 

I’m in the process of gearing up my Death Knight with the necessary DPS gear, as it seems we have enough tanks in the guild already willing to tank raids. It also seems there is a serious lack of melee DPS in our guild (we have a shitload of Hunters and Mages), so playing one of the few melee DPS’ers seems a smart move on my part.

Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman are starting to get really boring. Did I mention I hate the look and feel of these two dungeons? To much green, to much bloated bling-bling. To many hills, to many bushes, to much ADHD detail everywhere. But at least they are no longer frustrating to run with PUG people (if they are willing to listen).

Battleplan for the coming weeks:

– Do the Molten Front dailies to unlock the vendors
– Farm mats for the crafting of two Elementium-Edged Scalpers.
