On Saturday I went into the bedroom to wake Nikki up for raid. The issue here? She looked too darned cute and comfortable for me to wake her. So I laid down for a bit too thinking, “Just for a moment.” We wound up missing raid completely. It was decided that night, to no one’s surprise, that our group is now on a break until Stormblood. So we’re all free agents.
This will be the first weekend in a long time that I have not even tried to raid. But for sure I’ll gain in other areas without it!
While it pales in comparison to the forty-man raids of old, finding eight people who can attend raid nights consistently is tough! The more rare your scheduling and later your days, the worse it gets. Tuesdays are easier than Saturdays, for instance. It’s easier still if your age range involves mostly teenagers. Get a bunch of adults and you need to deal with careers, children, moving, etc. Today I’m going to talk a bit about what you can do to keep your raid going.
