Well, I'm not a raid leader &, as a player, I'm very quiet and reserved when I play. I think that I'd rather just sit in silence & let the raid leader speak than to chime in with anything. But that's just my personality.As such, what really, truly motivates me is being better than other people. I know that might be misinterpreted, but I feel that these games are, in fact, very competitive & what pushes me to "position the boss correctly" or to pop my CDs when I need them, or to try and push DPS classes as a tank, is to be better than everyone else.It all starts with that first dungeon that you get hazed with "you know, the last tank didn't such as much as you." I look inward and wonder, "how should I fix this?" I watch videos online, I queue as DPS so I can see how other tanks perform. I read strategies, etc.Ideally, when anyone on any server needs a tank, I want them to say, "Well, I wish Athanatos could tank for us." That's not realistic, so I have to settle for on raid night when my guild raids, I want to think that if I'm not there they have a very hard time finding someone as good as I am.
