I have a problem.February 26, 2009
I think I am having an identity crisis.
Everyone has always known me as ‘the pvp druid.’ And that’s what I considered myself.
PvP was what I did and what I wanted to be doing. I did arena whenever I could, and when that wasn’t an option I did BG’s.
Now that is not the case.
Lately I’ve wanted progression. I do Naxx almost every week with my guild and now I want more. I never thought of myself as a raider. Actually I pretty much despised it, but as of now I seem to want more.
Ever since Wrath, arena hasn’t been the same. I mean, we are doing decent… staying around 1600 but there doesn’t seem to be a goal I can work towards. It seems like more of something that I have to be lucky with, like my improvement won’t really benefit us. I know this is not the case and if I worked hard enough I would get better, but it doesn’t feel that way. The point system is strange and I find it really difficult getting used to the new class. I just don’t feel the love for arena like I used to.
Naxx 10 was when I first found out how much I like to raid. It was something that I was dreading doing, but I really wanted to see what it was like. That day was the first day of raiding, but not the last. I found the boss fights thrilling, the excitement building up inside of me. I wanted to kill the bosses and move on to the next.
I really enjoyed it.
Today, I am confused. I wasn’t aware of how much I would like to raid and how much time it takes up. I still do arena on occasion, but it’s not the same.
Am I a raider now?
