One of my guild mates, who became a good friend of mine, decided to take a break from raiding over the weekend. For how long he doesn't know. And just like that, the past two raids I've attended where he wasn't there haven't been very fun.
I've toyed around with cutting back on raiding or quitting altogether for a long time. Healing gets stressful, loot drama occurs. But with my friend there I had a good time. In fact, I think I started this blog saying that in part it was him that kept me playing.
So I wonder, has it been him that kept me raiding?
I've raided several times when he wasn't around (due to work, other engagements), but that was with the understanding he'd be raiding again soon. But now, he may not raid again, maybe not for a few days, weeks, months or ever. And knowing that makes me want to quit raiding. Perhaps I've been raiding for the wrong reason?
