As I have alluded to many times in this space I don’t get too much raiding action these days. In fact, I get on WoW maybe once or twice a week. Ironically, I probably spend more time writing for Tanking for Dummies in an average week than I do playing.
What can I say? There is a lot of stuff going on in my head that I want to share.
Needless to say, Axiom is not a casual raiding guild. So where does that leave me? There are some unique challenges to being part time.

…or how to succeed at raiding without pissing off the people who matter.
My first raiding experience, for the better part of two years, was a casual one. For better, or worse, I feel like I have a pretty good grip on what constitutes effective casual raiding and what causes casual raid groups to implode.
Most attempts to address this conflict, between playing “casually” and being a “raider” have focused on the leadership side of things. But the bricks and mortar of a raid group are not the leadership, but the individual raid members. So this is a bit of advice to the guild or group that is thinking of taking the leap.
