I'm sad to see so much hate for pairs in this topic! I'm a healer and my boyfriend is a warrior tank with a decent off spec for dps. I have more free time than he does and I enjoy raiding more than he does. Our life circumstances has us living far apart atm, and wow helps bridge that gap in our relationship. On the rare nights he has off from work -- we don't mind pitching in with the guild for raids if they need us both. Otherwise, we spend time by ourselves doing our own thing. We are always willing to run heroics for the DPS in guild which needs it -- and when and if we do raid we're really good at what we do. When he is on -- I spend my time in game with him. If that means raiding, great. If not -- it doesn't. I swap in for raids when I'm able to raid when he's not on as well.Many people in this comment thread would apparently hate my boyfriend and I. We don't pull rank for loot -- nor expect loot to be given to us. We raid when we do because enjoy it. We're good at what we do -- but our time in game together is something we choose to spend together. I frankly fail to see why this is an issue.

Joining in the pair love. I play the majority of my characters as a pair with my sister, and though we don't play those characters separately and I have alts to play when I play alone, we manage to get a long great in our guild.Mostly, we just have seperate niches. She comes along when we need an extra player to finish a guild achievement, but mostly to help lowbies or when she and I are working on our together alts (currently a tank and healer) or achievements together (loremaster). While I LOVE to do dungeons and raid and, unlike her, don't have school so I can be on a lot more.There isn't a reason to hate pairs generally. True, I'd be more loyal to my sister than the guild, but I'd also be the first to tell her is she was out of line. Not all of us that play together are bad.
