I've pretty much ran all of the heroics into the ground. I've raided all of the raids I can conceivably see, before the expansion, until I'm sick of them. I've beat my self to death in battlegrounds and arenas.Add to this the fact I've quested until I can quest no more, especially with dailies. I've leveled four toons so leveling is a drudge. I've explored pretty much everything I care to see.The game is about having fun. Unfortunately, the only fun left at this point is improving my character with new and better gear. I've reached a point where getting the gear isn't possible without hitting the higher level 25s. My guild isn't ready for that and I'm not leaving my friends just for gear.My point is, there's not a lot left to do anymore that is fun. It's all old, boring, and worn out. I find that there's little to do when I log in. I don't even log in anymore to be social with the guild. I simply log into vent and chat with everyone while I'm playing something else.Going after the top level gear is kinda pointless at this stage in the game. The effort required isn't worth it and really isn't possible to muster within the guild. A major push isn't seen as valuable with the looming expansion.And, to beat it all, I think I even strayed a bit off topic with this post.

How is playing a different game better for your friends than joining a different guild or a raiding alliance? Would the latter stop you socialising with them?

I still do play with them. Just not nearly as often. Add to that the politics and hurt feelings that always crop up, it's not worth it. Leaving a group of people you're close to for people you could care less about for something as trivial as loot is a big deal. Feelings will be hurt, even though it is just a game.Besides, when I'm playing another game, a single player game, I am free to converse. If I'm raiding with another guild, I'm on their vent talking to them. I'm not a big fan of people in general. Getting used to a whole new group at the expense of a nice set of relationships doesn't really appeal to me.

Wow, someone that understands that a guild can be more than a place to get phat lewtz. :)/salute MightyIdle
