YES! This is how I keep my WoW sanity.I have two raiding toons. For years, I had one who was a rank-and-file member of a hardcore progression-oriented guild. The people there were fun, but also self-centered, foul-mouthed jerks.When my wife started playing, she and I joined a rather casual, family-oriented guild, with polite, mature people... who sometimes drove me insane with their lack of game skills. I eventually became raid leader for this group.So when the pressures of hardcore raiding got to me, I had the casual guild to fall back on. When the frustration of playing with less-than-able raiders got to me, I had the hardcore guild to fall back on. When I was tired of being a grunt, I had a position of leadership to take care of, and vice versa.The only time I came close to quitting the game was when my leadership position with the casual guild started taking up so much time that I quit the hardcore guild, leaving me with no fallback position.Anyway, it works. And to those of you who say that "I don't need a fallback, my guild is perfect", have you been a member of that same guild for three years? If not, you haven't seen your guild at its worst yet. Someday, the honeymoon will be over, and you may find that getting a little something on the side will save your marriage.
