I think it's kind of strange. 4.2 has been out for about what, two weeks now, and it already feels like it's been forever. Right now I've killed 4/7 in Firelands, and have completed about three quests in the new Hyjal - just enough to see Thrall get smoked by the new fire druids. It was entertaining, though you have to ask yourself this - if Malfurion, Thrall, etc can all get stomped by these guys - what are we supposed to do? I mean, if I've got to go take this idiot out, how come I'm not the one getting all the love? Fuck Rhonin, where's the book about me?
So as a raider, I'm supposed to be doing everything I can to help out my raid team. This includes things like being on time, having flaks (or using a cauldron), having all my gear enchanted with the best/correct enchants, eating buff food, etc. Another part of that is making sure that I'm supplementing my raid drops with as much of the farmable/crafted gear as possible. And this is where I'm slacking.
I admit that the first week 4.2 was out, I didn't max out my VPs. This puts me slightly behind the curve. I also have done exactly zero of the new daily quests. This is mostly because I know that right now it's a PvP gankfest over there, but mostly it's a serious lack of care. The rewards aren't that great, and are marginal upgrades over my raid gear.
So, for the last two weeks I've been a bad raider. I could blame it on the fact that I'm installing new floors in my house, that we've raided about 10 hours total in 4.2, or that I chose poorly for rolling on a PvP server. Really though, I'm just not keen on doing the daily quests. I didn't do most of the quests for ToC, and unless I decide to move/reroll on a PvE server somewhere and am trying to gear up a new toon, I won't be doing them.
Of course we've two healed our way to 4/7, and I even ranked on Aleysrazor - so I think I'm doing pretty well for myself.
