    I enjoyed the camaraderie of being in a progression guild in vanilla through wrath. Do I love the solo lol fest that raiding has become? Nope.

    I do. It's more the present company than the whole killing x boss for the xth time. It's always fun and joking around.

    Most of what I do in-game is raiding.

    The gear is nice, it provides a reward scheme that makes you feel like you're progressing, but mostly I just like it for the fights.

    It's about performing perfectly on the class(es) you raid with. There is a level of predictability to it - just like a tennis match or a football game - but each individual repetition of an encounter is slightly different. There's always a way in which you could've handled it slightly better.

    It's the unattainable pursuit of perfection in a similar-but-varying environment. High adrenaline meditation.

    Raiding is by far the best aspect of WoW, and being part of a raid team is about the most fun I've ever had in a video game that involved a multiplayer game.

    Caveat: With a good raid team. Problem with raiding at least for me is I could never find a really solid team that fit my schedule, so I was generally a bench player for the B team on the #1 horde guild on my server during MoP.

    Caveat #2: Real raiding (ie normals and heroics, not LFR/flex).

    Real raiding with a real team of people who are not douchebags is incredibly fun and rewarding, although it is rare, and I would daresay increasingly rare. I wish there were more "strictly hardcore 2 night" type raid guilds, but they are sadly few and far between, and building up a raid team with this type of principle is nearly impossible at this point.

    Anyway, yes, real raiding with a team of good players who aren't total doucheys is super fun. That's quite a lot of caveats tho for a game that's 10 years old.

    I do enjoy raiding (especially among friends) but i must admit i'm getting a bit tired of it this expansion. Going through having the raid team having to reform three times due to people leaving for the rest of the expansion or for real life reasons has made getting a solid raid team together for a smooth raiding experience a colossal pain. Now both raid groups in the guild are merging for continued heroic progression. I suppose i'm just a bit burnt out personally on raiding since it has been a roller coaster ride this entire expansion.

    That's why you have to differentiate "real raiding" from lfr/flex, or at least lfr, which is as most people have mentioned a complete and total bastardization of what real raiding is. No one can solo lol fest current content in a real raid (normal/heroic).

    Yep, mainly because it is a great social activity. My guild has our clear down to 2 nights a week including carrying buyers, I always look forward to tuesday/wednesday nights, and i'm also never the one who volunteers to sit, because I still enjoy the fights. I guess if I didn't like the people I raid with as much I wouldn't enjoy raiding so much, but in that case I would probably have found another group that I fit in with.

    It's all about the people who you play with, just like any other multiplayer game.

    The Emphasis was on your "organized raiding" remark.
    If you like smaller its fine, but Im sure no one is enjoying unorganized zergfests

    Do you carry Norm or HC? +2 seems a bit much for HC kill Garrosh , but we also carry 2 buyers for 14N kill (saving up for garrosh progress)

    The first few weeks of a new raid are fun but then it starts to get boring really fast.

    This is going to sound very strange:
    Backround: Been raiding since level 60 when MC got launched.

    I do not particularly enjoy raiding for the content we experience. It is only on a very few bosses that I am very excited to be there trying to defeat it.
    I have raided heroic 25 mans until Heroic Ragnaros 25.

    Why would I bother raiding? (not particularly in that order)
    1. gearupgrades
    2. prestige
    3. playing with friends (this is the most important)

    There are a few bosses in my "raidingcareer" that I liked:
    1. The entire throne of the 4 winds
    2. Almost the entire BWD instance apart from that worm at the left side of the entrance.
    3. Valiona & Co
    4. Lich King
    5. That Vampire bitch in ICC
    6. Yogg
    7. The gnome in Ulduar where you try to get Firefighter achievement
    8. Illidan
    9. Archimonde in Mount Hyjal
    10. Kael'Thas
    11. Lady Vashj
    12. Theater in Karazhan
    13. 4 horsemen in Naxx 40
    14. Instructer Razuvious Naxx 40 (totally different from WOTLK version)
    15. Razergore BWL

    That is basically it. Sure when we defeated MC's Ragnaros it was one of the most epic moments for me. But the fight itself was long and dreary and most people hadn't a clue what actually was going on except the raidleader.

    So from my POV raiding is not perse very inspiring. It is the friends you play with that makes this game awesome.

    And the stupid thing is. Blizzard is making this game more and more a solo playable game.

    I raided because if i didnt raid the days were way too long T-T
    "When we're done, i want that cage...for....reasons."
    "Plus you folk have redheads. (sighs.) Redheads."
    "Other times you're in and out in five minutes. (clicks tongue.) "Thank you see you next week."

    mostly yes. but i tend to get bored if the same tier goes on for to long. i'm starting to hate SoO a bit for that reason

    I thoroughly enjoy raiding. Been doing it since MC/Onyxia. But, I don't think raiding should be all there is to do PvE wise, or instance wise. I don't like how Blizzard is trying to get more people to raid, and I also think the expansion's lore should not be tied to raids. Over the years I've met plenty of people who would otherwise never set foot inside a raid at all if they could help it. The problem with that is, you can't, not if you enjoy the story or want to see what happens at the end of an expansion.

    Loved it on private LK, loving it even more since i came to MoP.Sad they took away seperate lockouts for 10-25N/HC but meh got both my Pala and Spriest to run SoO with Cannot wait for WoD to pop and get that feeling u get the 1st time u enter a new raid!

    You do realize this works the other way around aswell?

    To be fair this is also true of people with PvE titles.

    I enjoy the new encounters as we learn them, the guild is what keeps me returning after the bosses ae downed the first time. The guild drama I have experience in previous guilds I have been a member of lessen my want to engage in anything WoW wise

    I agree. I'll be 13/14H soon and I absolutely suck at PvP unless it's world PvP where I can just brute force with my heroic gear.
