"Second comes right after first"..It's good to know that really serious gamers are getting down tough content, announcing their skill and dedication to the world. I myself am a competitive middle distance runner, and I can equate the long miles and hard training to the type of dedication it takes to be an end game raider. People don't generally look at these guys and applaud them as sportsmen and women, but they are achieving something that 8 million gamers can relate to, and in that sense they are celebrities in their own right, riding on the back of their own dedication to something that is important to them.Despite this, nothing beats the satisfaction of taking down a Boss first time with my own guild. Though our aspirations are limited to much earlier end game content, our dedication is still significant in relation to the time we have available as older gamers with many real world commitments such as work and family.In the future, we may only be the 500th guild to see Lady Vashj's contorted corpse despawn before our collectively horrified eyes, I know when it does happen, the satisfaction will be as potent to us as it is to Nihilium or Method.
