Anxiety, WoW, and Me Part Two: Electric Boogaloo

Wow!  I got a fantastic response on my last post.  All sorts of people came out of the woodwork to comment on the post or talk to me on Twitter about their own gaming anxieties.  Some people even went through it all at the same time or with the same expacs I did.

Frankly, I had no idea that something like this was so widespread.  Oh, I figured a couple of people here and there would know what I was talking about, but the lot of you?  It really took me by surprise.

Since this seems to be a fairly common problem I think I’m going to do more writing about it.  I also think I’ll blog about my efforts to get over my own gaming anxieties.  I know some people are happy with playing solo, and if that’s the case then that’s awesome and keep on doing that.  As for myself, though… I want to tackle the big bad boss at the end of the anxiety raid.  So I think that’s what I’m going to try to do, and anyone else who is trying to do likewise can come commiserate and maybe learn with me!

So… let’s do this.  Ya’ll ready?

  1. I think group raid anxiety therapy might just work!

    I plan on tackling some heroics at the weekend, hopefully with guildmates to “pop my heroic cherry” so to speak.

    Good luck and I look forward to hearing how you get on!

  2. Give me some time and I’ll level one of my hybrid characters to either tank or heal, since those two roles make me more nervous than looking bad as a DPS. My monk would probably make the most sense since she’s already 90, but I like Death Knight tanking more than monk tanking so maybe I’ll dust my goblin (still sitting at 85) off on Turalyon.
