Taking the plunge

My raiding guild isn't uber hard core - we're just moderately hard core. This means we expect our raiders to inform us of their absence, cause no matter what, RL > WoW. 'Course, attendance these last few weekends haven't been great, and that's worrisome. There's only so many times we can go farm the Sunwell for random drops... We are perfectly capable of downing Reliquary of Souls (one-fucking-percent!!!!!1!) and Mother is a joke (though it remains to see if she is indeed my idol), so this whole lack of raiders thing is annoying...

Our guild's eldest hunters are taking leaves of absence - one is the proud father of a new baby girl, and the other is taking a well deserved honeymoon. This leaves me. Both of the alumni hunters rerolled BM going into SSC/TK, leaving me to exercise my freedom as a MM hunter guilt-free. But one left to experience parenthood, and soon the other will be gone for a month as well. And I must do what is right...

Once again I iterate my hatred of the BM spec: I'm really not enthused about respeccing, even for the betterment of the raid. I'm going to be sitting there, spamming the same bloody button over and over again. But I even think the worst part will be respeccing, then just farming to get used to the spec again. I rolled it for a week back in the SSC/TK days, and died of boredom. OOOOO Aeris and Sephiroth are all big and red!! OOOO... big fucking deal... I have the gold to respec daily, but I'm not going to waste the effort. It's just a month... right? Ugghhh...

I hear you. I keep respec'ing my test hunter BM to try and get used to it... Just can't. BM maybe the face melter spec, but be damned if i don't get fried half to death alot more when I try it.. Scatter Shot + Silencing Shot + not loosing a large chunk of dps when the pet gets smashed = much better.
