What to do when your guild falls apart?

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 29, 2009 by Camron

Events of the past couple weeks have made me start to get away from the game. We have lost our main players over the past week or so. Our main raiding group was tired of the casual style of the guild and when they invited other players to join them they were upset when they wouldn’t show up. This type of stuff gets under my skin also but in the same way it’s not something that will make me take off looking for another guild. I like the people in the guild. And the few that stayed behind are my best in-game friends.

Now that they are gone I am realizing that we are only left with 6 or 7 viable raiders for Ulduar and ToTC content. And I don’t see us doing more Naxx runs just to get some gear for our new 80’s. But we have added a few new players trying to fill out a raid roster. But so far it’s been a Fail getting capable raiders.

I love raiding and it’s the only thing that keeps me going. I pug VoA weekly but has anyone else ever dealt with the problem of having a good raiding guild who falls apart into a casual guild and how do I get back to raiding on a regular basis? I don’t mind Pugging but would rather have a group that I’m familiar with. A group that know each other and knows their job during a boss fight.

New Weekly Raid Quest?

Read a couple days ago that there are hints to a new type of quest for patch 3.3. Quests to go along with raids much like the daily dungeons we do now only with weekly lockout periods from quest givers.

I think it’s a great idea but for me personally this may mean PUGing more raids. I have still yet been able to make a guild run and complete any of the level 80 raids in the game. The only raid I have completed was Naxx and that was with a PUG a friend had put together. So that means for me to get my hands on some of the new badges I may be running with some unfamiliar faces.

Edit; We have downed OS with 0 Drakes up in 25 and 10 man

The Art of the Woo

Well I log on and the guild got a raid going last night. I had only been in Ulduar once but had read up enough to be ready for the initial four fights. The progression on the raid is not important to this entry. Whats interesting is the psts I was recieving from a friend in another guild who was doing ToC 25.

We had been chatting a bit about raiding. He continued to tell me about his guild. The fact that they only had 30 raiders and NO ROGUES! Couple minutes of him trying to convince me to apply to his guild and he gave up because he knows how much I enjoy running with the people I am with.

As they were progressing he started telling me about an item they were DEing due to no Rogues;

Ugh! Seriously did you just tell me that?!

So anyways I wake up this morning and still have a bad taste in my mouth. I am a dagger Rogue. As long as a viable spec goes with it I will probably always be a dagger Rogue and this is certainly one of the pieces of gear I have my eyes on right now.

The guild seems to be taking full advantage of the 3.2 changes as far as gear goes. So it shouldn’t be too long before we are able to get through some of this ToC content.
