"Jennie Lees (Ready Check): I wrote about a conversation I had with my mum, who's a casual player, about raiding (specifically, why she doesn't do it). Some of the comments from readers on that are pretty good, too."I followed that link and when I read it I thought of some advice I would have given to her mother if I had noticed the post in time, but the advice applies to at least some degree here as well, sooo...Try soloing some lower-level instances. This will depend on your class and level, of course; a class with no healing abilities at all will have to wait a few more levels for something to be soloable than a paladin or druid would. One of those classes could probably solo Gnomeregan at 40, but a rogue might have to wait until 50. Stuff like that. But most of Jennie Lees' mom's questions about grouping at 80 would have been answered by simply doing all the quests in Stratholme. Bosses are tougher than most mobs and usually have adds or unique abilities. Some loot is gear to be equipped, and other loot is worth gold. Controlling mobs (crowd control, killing the mobs that heal or cast fear or stun first, keeping runners from bringing friends) is important. The rest is just manners and a willingness to ask questions if there's something you're wondering about.
