I’ve reached a weird point in World of Warcraft. I enjoy playing, but only when it involves doing things that I don’t have to pay attention to. Everything in ICC up to Dreamwalker? Check, I am happy to raid this because I can dps or heal while talking about rainbows and ballsacks (these may or may not be actual topics of conversation) in three different chat channels.
New content? AHAHA. I have new content ADHD. I can’t wrap my brain around learning new things right now, so instead I babble about boobs and then try to LOL my way through while not understanding at all what is going on. Honestly, until we had done Rotface and Festergut a few times, that’s how I handled those fights as well. Our raid leader gives long explanations over vent about the fine details of each new encounter, and my brain starts going BZZZT and I catch maybe 30 seconds out of the full 5 minutes.
Despite this, we got our first Dreamwalker … kill? Heal? Last night after a few flawed tries. Putricide, being the fight that we hadn’t seen before, was a complete bust, though. I know that I am confused and don’t have a clue what I’m doing when I start shouting “FUCKLE” at the screen.
Sure, I may not be taking raiding seriously or living up to the best of my potential because of my new inability to concentrate or give a damn, but I’m having fun!
