I've found since I've quit raiding I don't have much desire to hope to be the best, let alone try.
I read somewhere that professional athletes quit participating in their sport once they retire because just like us they didn't particularly like working out and practicing but they knew they had to do it to be the best.
Sometimes I think about getting a tier piece of this or that and what all I need to go through to acquire it, then I say to myself "Good thing I'm not raiding, who the heck cares?!?!".
So if you're like me, stop reading now. The things I'm about to list will be of no interest to you.
If you want to improve how you play here are some suggestions from the official forums:
*Coordination and Teamwork, don't group with "idiots"
*Dedication, play seriously, persistence
*Be born with the gift (?)
*Good hardware, computer and connection
Whew, that's a lot of stuff!
Good thing I'm not raiding, I can continue to be my mediocre self.
It’s just nice to be playing a game again
