Chapter I – This is not the blog you’re looking for (or is it?)

Welcome, Faceless and Nameless Reader of Average Skill and Progress! (from now on ‘FNRoASaP’)

This happens to be my blog, my latest creation where I maunder about my life as a restoration druid in a casual raiding guild. Now, before you roll your eyes at the word ‘casual’, I purposedly chose that word to underline the droll nature of this blog (see the not-so-tiny text on top of the page). If you want to start an argument about the superiority of ‘Casuals’ vs. ‘Hardcores’, I can direct you to the General forum of the MMO-Champion boards, but we all know how arguments are on the Internet… It’s a bit like participating in fox hunting: you will win eventually, unless you’re the fox, but that doesn’t make you less of a bloody fool.

Anyhow, enough babbling. What can you expect to find in here?

I am not sure either. I most certainly do not aspire to interwebs fame and I do this mainly for myself – so that by pondering my raid nights I force myself to constantly look at my talents, selection of spells, WOL logs etc. in order to perform slightly better every time and become a better healer for my guild. We spend a bit over seven hours a week raiding, so do no expect groundbreaking strategy articles on Firelands bosses – other bloggers will get there way faster with a lot of detail, making it pretty pointless for me to write lenghty posts about bosses many of you already attempted or read about.

Instead, I will focus on varioust aspects of raiding and try to give players different tools to improve their performance. To wrap up, I hope that my random posts will be not so random in the end and will give some tips to my tree friends out there. My first posts will probably focus on my Firelands experience so far, and how 4.2 affected my choices regarding talents, gear and spells usage. Until then, may you be able to keep your branches away from the fire.
