We’re Gonna Raid. I Mean Operations.
So Friday is our first raid. And the anxiety monster is full speed ahead in my little brain.
1. Did I completely fuck us over by choosing DPS? Now, when I chose to switch to DPS from healing, there were 3 healers for 2 spots which would mean someone offspeccing… and there’s no dual spec! Argh! But now the healers can’t ever go on vacation because there are exactly 2. And since I cannot offspec because I’m a sentinel, that forces someone ELSE to offspec and I feel kinda guilty about having someone else offspec when it used to be me who was doing the ofspeccing on a toon that I had sworn was for dps. In conclusion, I feel selfish even though I’ve healed for the last 2 MMO’s I was in, for like… 8 years, and goddamnit I deserve to DPS for a change.
2. But Dps Is Gonna Be Hard! Way to go, me. With tight enrage timers, DPS has to be even more on top of everything and I’m a DPS noob. Of all the freakin times to change roles, was this a good one?
3. Do we have enough warm bodies? Oh, we’re going into our first raid one short? Maybe 2 short? Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. If we had more people than spots, people would be sitting out and that’s no fun.
4. The UI. I’m still struggling and fighting with the UI. I can’t even imagine trying to interrupt ALL THE THINGS without a reasonable cast bar. Or having target of target. Or a focus that works. I’m so glad I’m not healing because I might drop dead without mouseover macros and other UI necessities.
Ok, that’s about it that are major concerns. Also, I’m a little worried about fashion. I absolutely refuse to wear the leaf-butt or anything similarly hideous, regardless of how awesome the stats are. To quote Darth Meatloaf yet again: “I would do anything for stats, but I won’t do that.”
