and by that I mean, the slackers who can’t be arsed to sign for the reduced schedule, cancel at the last minute because you find it impossible to keep track of your game cards and so on.
The kicker comment came from one of the dps “what’s the point in killing the Lich King again”, yes I know you were in on our only kill. You have the full achievement set, you’ve seen him dead, you don’t need to go through fight again. Now here’s the thing, I was standby that night, my main was blocked from doing anything else because I kept him sat outside the instance doing nothing all night ready to fill in a hole if needed.
I therefore missed the kill.
I’ve been making sure I keep my other lock for another group, this is not a problem but it means I’ve not been farming the content on both locks for six months.
I’ve not killed this bastard and I want him down.
So remember the raiding guild only works because there is a suitably large pool of players who are happy or willing to cycle around and sit out where needed. If we’re going to go down the route of “I’m not willing to do that again once I have my kill” then you’re heading to a dangerous place where only the interests of the individual are important, the other players only exist as a method by which you can get what you want.
Of course this will cut both ways in the end.
