I don’t think so, ICC has now been open for eight months, most of the players who want to be in there have cleared all or most of it, heroic modes aren’t keeping guilds going and Ruby Sanctum is enough to keep progression guilds interested for a month, two at the outside. Most guilds who raid regularly will have cleared normal mode already, the trick is in the phase 2/3 twilight realm movement.
All the current estimates are putting Cataclysm at October (optimistic) and probably somewhere from mid-Nov to early Dec. That’s three months or more away. Some players are off playing SCII, which I don’t think is a co-incidence, neat timing by Blizz, get the hardcore gamers spending money on another major title while they’re waiting for the next expansion but that only keeps a certain number happy.
So my plans, try and get more raids going with Team Pirate, most of the team hasn’t seen anything beyond Rotface and we’ve only just cleared the minibosses through to Halion. Continue levelling the rogue (got to the current levelcap for lockpicking last night, that was a boring as sin grind) and the Warrior. I might even dust off the Shammie again, but I’ve been having problems with him. Beyond that I’m not sure. The raiding guild feels like it’s imploding at the moment, but that’s a subject for a different post.
Here’s hoping the re-taking of Gnomer comes sooner rather than later.
