Serenia and I participated in our first raid since we hit level 70. Gruul's Lair!
I have to admit it was a little strange raiding again. The last time instance either of us had raided was one of the original 40 mans (BWL, AQ40, NAXX). Remember those?
On top of that, I was a primary tank during those raids. So, switching to a DPS class has been an interesting experience. I found it rather surprising how boring an instance can be when you are not working strategies, setting up targets, or one of the many other jobs that come along with a guild sponsored instance run. Anyways, the run was the first time the guild had attempted a 25-man instance since the Burning Crusade was released. So, suffice to say, everyone was probably a bit rusty. However, we did manage to defeat the first boss, High King Mulgar, and a few people picked up some Tier 4.
In some ways we feel left out since neither of us are a primary raiding class (i.e. healer/tank). But, at the same time, the lack of responsibilities is very refreshing. When you are just a DPS class, the guild does not depend on you quite as heavily. Though, my point of view only knows how raiding in the original game worked. Maybe things have changed...
