After swearing I had retired for life, Casadella looks to once again be heading back in the raiding ring.
Having barely done a dungeon, let alone a Heroic or LFR in Mists of Pandaria, this might seem like I am biting off more than I can chew. However with the introduction of Flexible Raids coming in patch 5.4, combined with a fresh start on a new server in a wonderful new guild
and my now stable NBN internet connection
, I have the World (of Warcraft) at my feet!
Issue one: I have an incredibly low tolerance to rude and inconsiderate keyboard warriors. They do as they please in a dungeon run and thanks to the server pools, have no consequence for being a jerk and then can just queue up for another random. Solution: Harden up and /ignore!
|Even the NPCs can get cranky!|
Issue two: Raiding four times a week used to be no issue with my previous job IRL. As a manager of a small business, I had complete control of my own roster and could simply call in another employee if I had a big night of raiding and needed to catch up on sleep. Now that I have embarked in a new direction in the travel industry, I have to quite often travel to destinations with limited Internet access. Sometimes for extended periods of time with little notice. Solution: Flexible Raiding in 5.4. Why did you not do this years ago, Blizz? Loving it!
|This boat looks about as safe as the one I was on last week in Bangkok.|
Issue three: Being an indecisive person with the attention span of a small child, a Hybrid has always been the perfect class for me-I can change roles whenever I want. And the worst-I can change roles wheneverrrr I want... I have always raided and done PVP as a Moonkin, and even after dabbling in Kitty and Bear, in the end it's always back to the Owlchicken. This week however, has seen me complete my first Pandaria LFR bosses (12 in a row!) as a Resto Druid. This was my first time healing as a Druid and even without knowing the boss strategies, I lived to tell the tale. And I enjoyed myself. To Resto or to Moonkin? Solution: I don't have the answer to this one. I don't think I ever will.
