We’re seven months into the Cataclysm expansion.
It’s been eight or nine months since I’ve “actively” raided.
Sure, sure…The Zug Initiative has done some older raids and tried to keep relatively active. But really, times have been a little slow at TZI for a plethora of reasons. As such, we really didn’t try (or consider?) raiding post-Cata launch. I’m sure you already knew this because you’re dedicated followers, but our dear friend Hello Tauren! already covered a couple of reasons. (Out of those, I’d put lack of attendance as the leading cause. But hey, life happens.)
With the changes of Patch 4.2, there’s been some murmurs of getting back into raiding. We’ve gotten some decent upgrades from the new Justice Point gear, we’ve put some extra efforts into gearing up in some dungeons, and attendance is on the rise a bit. Heck, even the other day we had a full ten people online.
So, we’re going to do some raiding this weekend. Nerfed T11 stuff…but hey, it’s new to us. And we’re doing it with friends. That means one simple thing: FUN. 😀
The scary thing is…I’m nowhere near prepared. I haven’t researched the fights, watched any of the videos, stocked up on flasks and food. I also probably need to tweak my gems, talents, and enchants. I don’t even know what bosse we SHOULD try (other than Baradin Hold, assuming we have it.)
I’m getting some weird pre-raiding jitters and it’s still two days away.
