How to Raid, the FUN Way!
Our favorite Death Knight is found creating many explosives, why you ask? Mostly because he loves to see squirrels go *boom*…
Raiding can sometimes get boring, especially if you are doing something you have done a million times, mostly for the sake of badges or helping out your guild with gearing up some of the people. So, how do you make some of the less enjoyable moments more enjoyable? Simple actually, and it is even easier, because I am going to share a few of my secrets with you about what I do to make some of those boring moments a blast.
Drinks: You always need some sort of fuel to raid with, me, I have an amazingly awesome bottle full of Vitamins! Seriously, this stuff is great, pretty healthy but it tastes delicious. Go for whatever you want, but a favorite drink sets the mood great right from the start!
Frogger: This is a train wreck anyways, because there is always at least one person in every raid that explodes due to Frogger after Patchwerk, but to make it even more fun you have to run REALLY fast and get REALLY drunk (In game… real life works too I suppose.). So drink some of your favorite brews, and get completely smashed. Then Engineers, strap on the rocket boots, Rogues hit that Sprint button, and Druids, Dash! If you do not die you probably killed someone else, so congratulations!
Do A Barrel Roll!: What is the best way to pull Sartharion in Obsidian Sanctum? No, not the correct and safe way, if you’re a Paladin or an Engineer and you’re a Tank, spice up that raid a bit. Get on your mount or use your rocket boots and time that jump correctly, hit the bubble or the parachute and pull that bastard! Trust me, it looks ridiculous on everyone else’s screen and it’s a ball o’ laughs on the Tanks. (Although, I would only suggest doing this with a group of friends.)
Shake That Thing!: This is my personal favorite to do, but you are going to have acquire a copy of I Will Survive- Gloria Gaynor. Beat the living HELL out of Noth and clear all of that delicious trash and enter the slime-infested dance floor of Heigan the Unclean in Nax! Quickly put on I Will Survive and DANCE! Can YOU survive? I hope so, but this will just set the tone for Heigan’s most recent death.
Macros: Macros are useful for sure, they make things happen quickly and efficiently, but used right they could make you the life of the party. An idea that trickled into Gradii’s mind one time during an instance was that he should macro “YOU’LL RUN AS FAST AS KENYANS!” to be yelled every time he used Sprint. Of course I had to 1-up him and make this masterpiece.

As long as it is not an ability you constantly are using so it becomes a complete spam-fest it can definitely bring up some interesting conversations while doing practically anything. Be creative, lower the IQ’s of your fellow guildies, trust me they will thank you after!
Welcome to a bit the crazy world of Elnoriah and raiding, we hope you have enjoyed your stay! Although, I am curious, is there anything you people do during raids to give yourself a few laughs? Well, if you feel awesome enough, post them in the comments, give us some ideas about making those boring times a frickin’ riot!
