It sucks the druid can't complete his staff. From the raid lead perspective, you want the staff parts to go to a consistent raider, so he was passed over. I sympathize that you want to get your orange, I want to get my staff finished as well, but I think TOR is gonna put a kink in that plan as the guildies start to transition over to that game. My suggestions are two fold: 1. Remember why you enjoy the game and raiding: slaying internet dragons with your buddies. Its pretty sweet to turn into a blue dragon, but you're a druid. You honestly have flight form and its pretty baller. The gear comes and goes at this point, just enjoy doing things with your guild and if you can get the staff, awesome! If not, its just a digital item; the memories of completing content (outside of the raid finder) represent your emotional investment in the game and your value on your time spent in the hobby.2. Play another game. If you're burning out on WoW, TOR goes live very soon. Its a new world with space opera and mystical force powers! It's pretty shiny. Or try skyrim. Its an amazing fantasy game and has a whole world to check out.

Oh Skyrim. This has been the best non-MMO game to supplant the WoW itch. It lets you look everywhere for delicious secrets and you don't have to wait on anyone to start at raid time!

oh yes, I agree. I already liked Oblivion but my WoW addiction was too strong back then so I only played a few hours. Now with Skyrim it's different. It's got everything I missed in Wow (great graphics, immersive story and atmosphere, player housing) and is free of all the things that annoyed me in Wow at the end (the problems and limitations that come with multiplayer games). It's even got a pause button for you to use when your phone rings in the middle of a fight with a dragon!!!If you feel burnt out from years of WoW but you still have that gaming itch, you should definitely try out Skyrim and stay away from TOR.No matter how good this turns out to be, it's still an MMO and if you're annoyed of WoW for the same reasons as me, chances are you will start to feel burnt out again very soon.
