A Reaffirmation of Sorts

September 18, 2009

I spend a great deal of my WoW time running battlegrounds and working on achievements- most I can do on my own. Rarely do I run heroics or raid because I loathe PUGs as a healer. PUGs are dangerous things to a sensitive healer, a healer quick to guilt herself as they are notorious, in my eyes at least, for vitriol, especially as they will ignorantly and vehemently turn on the healer. It’s not such a big deal really, but the idea of that sort of abuse is enough to make me hesitate. I need at least one person I know or am acquainted with to run heroics. A wingman.

Not that battlegrounds are really any better, but at least I have anonymity. Plus, it’s almost always due to poor or non-existent teamwork.

I need to raid Naxx for gear and practice my dewy holy spec, but my guild carries me off to Ulduar instead, encourages and advises me along the way. My current raiding guild now is not unlike my first raiding guild on my warlock. It’s a casual guild full of people who know one another, except I don’t really know these guys. I’m slowly learning their names, but I do feel accepted and never threatened. That, to me, is the most important part of being in a guild. It’s a great relief to be in that sort of environment.

Not that I need to be coddled. Not that they are a bunch of carebears.

Not that most of them are exceptional at PVP. Not that I am either, but I’d like to learn to be.

Which, for the most part, is what this blog is about.
