The Fun and Unfun of 25 Man Raiding

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:06 am

25 man raids are a lot of fun. The ordered chaos of 25 people running around avoiding AoE and trying to slay the boss appeals to me a lot. The problem is getting 25 people into a raid at the same time. During the summer with vacations, getting 25 people together can be unfun. Our guild has attempted a hyjal raid 2 weeks in a row and failed to get the people together. This seems to have an impact on morale, but I may just be imagining it. We do have enough for 10 man raids, so I suspect I’ll see a lot of kara badge runs and ZA runs. This is fine for me since I still am green on some of the Kara bosses and I’ll still see upgrades. ZA is a ton of fun, and has some nice healer gear too. It will be nice at the end of summer to see 25 mans happen again. I didn’t spend four grueling days doing PvP to get my trinket just to have it. I want to see a lot of dead Rage Winterchill.

In the mean time, I’m looking at doing any 25 man pugs I can get into (I seem to find one every 2 weeks or so) and badge gear. Specifically for resto shaman, Anveena’s Touch, Clutch of the Soothing Breeze, and Wave of Life Chestguard all look good. The first thing I want to save badges for is the Gavel of Naaru Blessings. It’s probably the best healing mace that I would see before SunWell. I probably won’t see the inside of that instance before the expansion though.
