Shared Topic: What do you do when your raid is canceled

Raids don’t work out every night. Sometimes, after you’ve scrambled to get all your work done for the night, after you’ve grabbed your drinks and your snacks, you excitedly log into the game only to find out that there just aren’t enough people available/the server is throwing a hissy fit/aliens have temporarily taken over your guild. Disappointed but not discouraged, you turn to your backup plan for the night. If you have one.

To make sure that, from now on, everyone will always have a backup plan to turn to when their raid is canceled, Deyndor from Swift Retribution suggested last week, that as a Shared Topic, we blog about what we do when our raid is canceled.

So I was talking with Eda on twitter tonight and she mentioned that she’s had 4 raids in the last 2 weeks get canceled. And that got me wondering, what do people do when their raid is canceled?

I’m sure there will be the mundane like farming stuff or running heroics, but I’m sure there are a lot of people with some really interesting and fun things too. Maybe you invade an enemy capital by yourself. Maybe you go play an alt. Whatever it is, share it!
