Just out of curiosity, why do you raid in the World of Warcraft?
Some people do it out of presteige, and find the thrill of the world first / server first, hell even server 5, 6, 7 race. Some people do it because they like the lore, and some do it because they love the gear grind. Where do you fit in the mass amount of raiders? Do you enjoy raiding because it gives you something to train your mind on and become good at, even if its a game?
Personally when I raided in this game, i did it because I loved the difficulty of the raids. I loved seeing major lore figures come to life and be shown with personality. The moment I actually made it to the summit where Illidan stood, my jaw dropped and i was actually standing in the presence of he who wields the skull of Guldan. It was an epic feeling. Thats just where im coming from!
