Murphy’s Law of Alting to Help the Guild:
The Inevitable Cycle of Guild Composition
Let’s say…you’re a priest. You enjoy priesting, but you also like to have a well prepared alt to help the guild out in case of Wonky Composition Nights, so you start prepping one that you adore playing. Alright, so secretly you relish the idea of raiding as another toon sometimes. You REALLY hope that you’ll get to use your alt at least SOMETIMES. Anyway. So let’s say you’re readying a hutner, because your guild is actually really low on hunters.
Just about the time she’s ready, suddenly your guild has 5 hunters.
Oh, well, there’s pugs and stuff, right? Back in the back for now, hunter. So you go along and soon it seems that your guild is always running short on tanks. They mysteriously vanish during anything but raid times, and it would be cool to help with off night raids and stuff. So you get your tank ready to go and…
…suddenly your guild has more tanks than they can shake a stick at. Not only mains, but also alts, becuase it seems like everyone else in the guild had the same idea you did. And they’re all paladins.
You keep on priesting. Suddenly a lowbie alt of yours catches your fancy and next thing you know, you’re plugging away at a druid. Your guild actually has a dearth of druids. Oooh, could this be your new Cata main? What a thought!
Just as she hits that nearly Northrend home stretch…
…half of your newest recruits are druids, of the 2 specs you favored, and you don’t need any more.
…all this has actually happened to me. How about YOU guys? :P
