Valid argument Sean, Colerejuste, and Rob, except for two points:I work 45-60 hours a week, depending on whether I need to fill someone else's shift, and I work second, sometimes third shift. On average I get home at 12, and don't get on WoW til 2/3am. On an East coast server (where I live). None of my guildies will be on, save one or two fellow nighttimers. I don't play for very long when I do get on, either. I aim for two hours, sometimes three if I'm feeling KARAZY.Yet I manage to pug Naxx10 with no issue. I've had a few bad runs, yes, but for the most part it wasn't bad. If YOU know the encounters (which go to youtube and look up any How To) then you can teach other people. It's what I do, and it turns out fairly well. The only fight that EVERYONE seems to just do awfully at is Heigan. As a melee DPS, I make sure I've got a mark above me and just try to get everyone to follow me. It can be awful. I've gotten through it with pugs though. If one person knows what they're doing, everyone else can just follow suit and learn.I think there's a major issue with the hardcore players saying "OMG RAIDS TOO EASY!" and the casual players going "OMG RAIDS TOO HARD!". I don't think Naxx is too easy, it's just the playerbase knew what they were doing LONG in advance. And I don't think it's too hard, it's certainly easier than The Oculus is for most first timers.My fiance has similar issues to what you've described, and I sat her down and told her exactly what I'm about to tell you: If you really want it, you'll really get it. It's that simple. You can't expect someone else to run you through it, you've got to run others through it. Take charge!And yes, Rob, Kara pugs were AWFUL, horrible, just the absolute worst. But Naxx is 10x easier than Kara was.
