Simply a general question. I’m on the spectrum; I’ve also been playing WoW on and off since release.
One thing I always struggled with, are raids, simply because they contain such a massive sensory overload. Normal Dungeon runs are ok, because they are over fairly quickly, but raids mean going through a barrage of sound and visual effects over a long time, which is extremely challenging for an autistic brain like mine. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, google “sensory overload”. It’s not fun.)
I can do this, but it is extremely draining, not much fun and usually leaves me completely exhausted after half an hour or so.
Usually that wasn’t such a problem; raids were just the bit at the end, which you could easily avoid, if you were not into it. But now, the war campaign continues on the other side and the Zandalar raid sits like a big roadblock in front of it.
I wish there was some way you could just opt out of this. I don’t care about loot, I can live with the fact I’m not going to see these epic fights, I would just like to be able to enjoy the lore without having to go through the gaming equivalent of a dentist appointment to get there. I’d be happy to press a button that says ‘skip’ and then go on with the war campaign.
Just me? Or can anyone relate?
