Getting Back The Raiding Mojo. I Mean Ops. Totally Ops.
After a month – yes, you read that right, a MONTH – of being unable to raid due to family obligations, I am putting back on my big girl (hawt) pants, and my new shiny sand people shirt from the world event, and going back into… wherever we’re raiding this weekend (TBD).
Guys, I’m a little nervous. But, as you know, nothing helps a case of nerves more than excessive and obsessive preparation. It’s true. I read it in a fortune cookie. So here’s the agenda for the rest of the week:
- Re-watch all the videos and re-read the strategies so I don’t forget some major thing and insta-kill myself and/or wipe the raid.
- Do some dailies or flashpoints to remember where all my buttons are… so I don’t do something derpy and insta-kill myself and/or wipe the raid.
- Try to avoid insta-killing myself and/or wiping the raid, generally.
But, of course, the above takes discipline. The devil on my shoulder wants to procrastinate and go fiddle around on my mercenary. You know, put on the headphones, tune out the world, and just focus on the story (this is my first imp toon, so it really is a new-new story). But, as I remind myself, if I want to be a vaguely competent raider, and raid with my awesome team, I can’t just give in to my id. It will be a miserable raid for everyone, especially me, if I’m making us wipe right and left.
Maybe I’ll find some more videos narrated by dudes with hot accents because I totally learn better from them. It’s science.
