Thanks everyone for the kind words and thanks WoW dot Com for the gracious "15 Minutes"!Coming from a "hardcore" raiding guild I'd just flat out run out of gas. I stopped my raiding at Malygos and decided to take it easy. I'll be honest, I went through a period pondering whether WoW was still the game for me. I bounced in and out of guilds that were advertising "casual raiding" only to find out that I was promptly placed into a secondary group for raiding "casually".That's when I posted the "Do Raiding Guilds Exist" thread over on the official realm forums.When I found the Vanguard of Norrath, I was pleasantly surprised that "Retirement Guilds DO EXIST!" We take great pleasure in jumping on and running a dungeon (or three) at the spur of the moment. We don't bother ourselves with spreadsheets, gear websites and the like. We log in for one thing and one thing only - TO HAVE FUN!And VoN is really good at doing just that!Finally, I'd like to say, if raiding is your thing, go for it! If you are having fun, tuck the World of Warcraft under your arm and run with it as fast as you can! After all, WoW, with all of it's intricacies is just a game and games are meant to be fun!Have fun all and I'll see you around that meeting stone!~AurendarThe Vanguard of Norrath - Blackwater Raiders
