Raiding in EQ2 Op/Ed

Posted Mon, Mar 27, 2006 by Ethec

Is "raiding" everything it's cracked up to be?

Raiding is that content that some of us only dream of. Is it really all that and a bag of chips? Or is it best left to those that have the time and patience for it? Savanja takes a peek at raiding content and delves into that age old question of whether or not raiding is really worth it.

Raid guilds vary of course. Some may raid once a month, once a week, a couple days a week, and some raid every night. It's a commitment for sure. One that I would never be able to make, as I typically just wish to play, have fun, and chat far too much. You have to have a certain amount of drive for it. A friend of mine, who I will leave unnamed, mentioned having to make the push to level 70, partially to keep up with his regular raid group, most of which had already made level 70. I mean, here I am, at level 63, slowly watching that experience bar move up for the first time in months, completely content to putter around on this character, and a couple of my other alternate characters, and people around me are making the mad push for level 70? I feel so alone! Don't leave me behind!
