Have offspec: Wants to raid.

After my desire to raid seemed to have gotten lost in translation, and working towards getting the numbers for 25 mans, became running 25 man raids – I was pretty much told there was no  room and I was free to pug  – I was left reconsidering my options again after a very disappointingly short time.

I never expected to be welcomed with a fruit basket and a baked cake, but  I wouldn’t have transferred if I had thought there was no chance. I couldn’t get a straight answer from anyone,  so I bugged the officers a little.  Because there was no app, I wasn’t a trial,   I tried hinting this desire,  told several I was heroic geared for healing too.  Was on at raid time,  asked them did they need a healer, even did some guild heroic runs as dps  as a see here, look at me. None of that seemed to work.   So I tried being direct Do you need a healer? I want to raid.”
Nothing like proving how bad you want something then changing your spec/Glyphs/bars/healing mod on the fly after getting a “ready now?”  and an immediate summons to a  full raid standing in front of a boss. A raid that you’d been convinced for the last week   you’d never see the inside of. 

I look to have that chance.  So I am going to need to prove my commitment and jump through hoops,  though I don’t think I’m doing flash hot so far. Haven’t convinced them enough to take me off friend rank. That they seem to be lacking healers means I’m getting invites to the 25’s but after almost a week , I’m not even sure it would let me spend my dkp if it came to it,  so this all could be a waste of time, but for now I shall be healing, and after getting my confidence with my Disc healing in dungeons  -back to holy is an adjustment.  But if I want to raid, I need to want it bad enough, I was the one who left them,  didn’t level with them and came back thinking I’d have a decent shot at 25’s, so I have to be patient and prove I’m committed, or I pee off.
So I have my chance ( unless I completely kurfluffed it ) but after getting it,  I had to reflect on myself that why can’t I transfer that the persistence  or passion elsewhere.

For every CEO that played Wow,  there’s 1000’s more that spent their time furthering their education,  how do you try and have a life and raid 4 nights a week,  work full time, do other activities, build a career try and be social and get sleep. It it really something your only supposed to seriously attempt once, and then move on because something, or  more than one thing suffers.

    It is paining me to see you get dragged from pillar to post!
    Especially seeing as we are in such need of healers – especially a priest of any flavour!
    It’s a real shame the hours don’t match up!
    Good luck on finding a guild where communication happens 😦

    Genuinely, I think you don’t.

    I’ve given up on raiding full time, I’ve found a nice little Perth based guild that raids twice a week at 10pm server time. I can work late when I need to, go out with friends when I want to, play my sport on the weekend, study, read books and everything else that I like/want/need to do for my career and friends. We’re 4/12 atm, so not seriously hardcore, but doing well.

    Enough about me though, Dreadmaul is full of guilds looking for more. You don’t need to be in a position where you’re trying to beg to get a raid spot, people on this server are desperate for talented raiders.
