I've solo'd up through karazhan and magtheridon.However, my first raid experience was in Naxxaramus in Dragonblight. Two of my friends have been avid raiders since vanilla, being part of the AQ40 generation. Their guild had broken up at the end of BC and we all transferred together and formed a small little guild. When the time came, we started working on naxx. I didn't do well. With my whopping 800 dps, I was at the bottom of the pack. But we down all of the first quarter and up to the instructor in the second quarter.They said I was doing well. I required very little healing, I knew not to stand in things, and I was in position. But they told me this isn't pvp. I was geared and thinking in terms of survival. You have to think in terms of damage. Anyway, I enjoyed it. Makes me wish I kept all those pictures of the bosses we down in the first quarter that night. It was a fun experience. I liked being with my friends and downing bosses. But, I came to a conclusion that night. I don't want to invest the time it takes to raid. I have since stuck to my PVP and cleaning out old bosses for mounts. In the beginning of cataclysm we went back and did retro-raids on friday nights. That was fun and required little to no ramp up time/consumable time. We've since gone back to our battleground ways and done zero of the cat raids.Raiding is fun when you have the right group. But it requires a personal investment of time and preparation that I don't have. I have just as much fun with my friends defending a flag from wave after wave of "pvp trash". We have fun in our own way.
