So I sometimes feel like the only one in the world and I was hoping for a little sympathy, or empathy, or something.
I have no alts. Well I do. I have a 49 huntard (she's and idiot and a farming toon), and the rest are in the 30 or lower bracket. But nothing that's a 70 keyed for Kara and my new love. Now I'm about the only one the the guild who feels this way. Everyone else it seems has a boatload of alts that they are happy to abandon their main toons. Soon as they have most or all of the gear they want from Kara they quit running and bring in an alt.
This has stalled us. We don't go past Kara. We don't try ZA cause we lost some well geared tanks (to drama, naturally...) and the one well geared tank we've got left is burned out from really painfully slow runs and stupid dpsers (and healers, he gets really cranky if I'm not the healer on him cause we've got a couple slacker healers and he knows it as does his repair bill). So weekly we have about 1/2 to 1/3 mains and the rest are alts.
I hate it. I want our well geared spriest. I want the "I don't need anything until TK (even though he actually does)" pally healer. I want the mage who knows how to manage aggro and still fight with the uber hunter for the top of the dps meters. I want our lock. I want our good toons so we can clear it in one night instead of the 2 (8 hours is just too much time to spend in Kara on farm imho). I want to see something new.
Yeah I'm enabling by going. I'm enabling by helping people run stuff instead of just running off and pugging Mags or Gruul. (I've been invited to both in the last week, and said no both times because I was helping guildies or getting ready for second Kara night.)
Am I the only person who loves thier main? Who loves playing and doesn't feel great relief when thier main isn't needed? Who isn't desperate to run off and play an alt?
GRR! I want to get in and see inside of Gruul. I want to check out more of ZA (we've only killed the first 2 bosses and only tried once). I'm frustrated that I'm one of the few people who works hard to gem up my gear and enchant it and farm my own stuff. (or the cash to buy it which, um...ouch!)
I work hard to help people out. And I understand burning out. But maybe we wouldn't burn out if people were willing to help on mains once in a while. I hate kara taking 8 hours. I get why everyone wants to try it in a different role. But if we keep doing alt runs where mains can't go so we can get a main run later in the week and then no one shows up for the main run....I've just about had it. GR!
I love my priest! I want to play her dammit! I want to have fun with her! Don't make me repec so I can solo because that's my only option outside pugging.
Ugh! I realize I sound really selfish here. But I didn't join an alt guild. I wouldn't have if I'd known. I don't want to quit and have everyone be mad at me. I actually like the people I just don't know that they want the same things I do. I want to check out all the content. I want to see inside the shiny new places. I want to see. They want to level alts.
