I guess its official. I am no longer a full-time raider. I'm not even a part-time raider. I'm, well...I'm just a player. I quit raiding a while back, but in the back of my mind I still wanted to raid. In the back of my mind, I was trying to justify that all the things that pushed me away from raiding weren't really that bad.

I still do the occasional Karazhan run to hang with friends or help out. But that doesn't count as raiding.

I barely keep up with what my own guild is doing inside of instances anymore. I used to miss being in there wiping with them. Now I think "I'm glad I don't have to pay those repair bills!" and "That wipe could buy my alt a new breastplate".

Why do I feel this deserves its own post? Well I first started blogging in part to talk about raid issues that were leading to burnout and me wanting to cut back. So, it took me almost a year to leave it behind.

It deserves its own post because raiding in WoW turned out to be a huge part of the game for me. I honestly thought I would be so bored without raiding that I would quit if I didn't raid. So I'm surprised to find myself having fun with the game, even without having it revolve around raiding.

Glad to see another convert. =D I think I may try my hand at raiding when WotLK comes out; you know, see Naxx at 80, lvl my main at a normal pace, get a flying mount finally. >.< But until then, it's all about my alts.

WotLK is so far away!!!! *cry*

I definitely want to get back into 10-man raiding with Zul'Aman, even though that's still not technically "raiding" to me.

If you don't have a flying mount yet, you have something to look forward to! You'll get access to some new areas, not really new content, but some new daily quests you can do that is nice for extra pocket change.

But I have a level 70 alt that doesn't have a epic ground mount, let alone a flying mount and she is able to function just fine without either.
