New Poll: How Often Do You Raid Per Week?

Hours spent raidingThis is another one of my curiosity polls. I’m interested in knowing the amount of time you guys (and girls) spend raiding on a weekly basis. This will help me understand my audience a bit more (hopefully).

For me, I log about 16 hours a week raiding (3 hours for Karazhan, 13 hours on SSC/TK and 12 of those hours are spent eating dirt in Kael’s room). How often do you raid and do you think you spend too much or too little time raiding? How much of it is spent on old or farmed content and how much of it is targeted at progression?

Most importantly, do you enjoy it?

  1. In the old days I used to do 8pm to midnight, Monday to Friday. Being in my 30’s homework was never an issue but the wife’s complaining was and I also ended up with total WoW burnout (stopped playing altogether for about 6 months).
    So now I play on an RP server, have more fun and have found a casual Raid Comm that does 2 nights a week, with an optional 3rd if enough are interested. I am for the record also now divorced…

  2. Three nights per week for a combined total of 8.5 hours. All of it is dedicated to getting to the new content and wiping a lot on it.

  3. Well our guild is just about to do the first Karazhan tonight.
    But considering that we r not a hardcore guild,
    but more like a casual,family place ,
    i doubt we will raid more than 1-2 days per week,
    and the raid will not last longer than 3-4 hrs.

    Well thats the plan ,but we will c how the future will be xD
    We all now how this game is sticky and how many promises that we make to us self get broken so easy..

  4. i’m one of the 5 or less atm… wed night is gruuls which is taking us about 2 hrs, and fri ZA which we’re not getting that far into yet *sigh*

    I would do more (ie kara) to get badges etc but just dont have the time or energy to do it with an insomniac baby >_<

  5. We’re only up to Kara content, working on Curator atm. And we are a casual guild so we just take our time learning and trying. I enjoy it. We always have a good time, music over voice chat between rooms, heavy leather balls tossed around, non combat pets following us around:)

  6. 6 most weeks, 9 when fiancee-aggro permits.

    My guild raids 4x 25-man per week (3hrs/raid) and members are obligated to attend two of those. Kara/Za are done more pick-up style.

    So I raid twice a week. 😉 I have too many other things I enjoy in life to dominate my time with WoW.

    3/4 TK
    3/6 SSC

  7. Do I enjoy it? Yep.

    <3 Kara…Gruuls on monday though. Should be interesting. I’m geared better for it now.

    I generally raid tues. nights – full kara clear excluding nightbane and netherspite. sometimes we do the others on wednesday. usually nightbane. sometimes we done. Give or take i usually raid under ten hours per week. I like it that way.

  8. Just started raiding 4 weeks ago on my warrior tank and I can’t get enough. Easily 20hours a week. Kara 2 or 3 nights, Gruuls, Mags other nights and soon I’ll be doing SSC as well. Might even squeeze in some attempts in ZA.
