Thank you for your post. I think it would be very useful for disabled players to swap tips on how to play more effectively.
I have no obvious physical abnormality, I have a hidden disability, a life-long brain disorder. I am under a doctor's care and take medication to manage.
I can "pass" out in the street. It does effect my ability to play WOW well, however. I adapted mainly by avoiding stressful situations like raiding.
I am always the weak link in any group I have been in, mainly because dungeons and raids are completely confusing to me. I can't process all that is going on. I am not stupid, I just can't process too much stuff all at once.
I avoid grouping. That's how I deal with it. I enjoy playing the game as a solo player, but I am envious of people who are able to group effectively, by whatever means.
I also play with a disability, mine from an incurable genetic disorder in my neck and spine compounded by a bad accident I was in about 10 years ago. I get "flustered" sometimes in heated fihgts in raids but I manage because my guildies are wonderful and raid leader for the guild keeps up steady, calm instructions throughout encounters. He didn't start doing that because I needed it, he actually did it because it helps him stay organized, bonus benefit is it makes our raids flow well and people like me get calm prompts.
Through the years I've needed that guidance less and less, in Wrath I reached a point where I could raid well in a pug with no help and even with cranky jerk Raid leaders cussing and loosing their minds in vent.
Cataclysm knocked me back, not because it's harder, but because my toons were completely overhauled and I've been having to learn how to play them all over again I would love to have a way to connect with others who play Wow that face the challenged of a disability. I would be thrilled to help others level, get into raiding etc, I have 6 85's, 3 raid geared and a wonderful guild that I know would help (including the calm voiced raid leader LOL). Unlike many, my guild does know about my challenges, but that's because my entire real life family is in the guild LOL. Perhaps a network that could also identifye Guilds that would welcome disabled players, that have cheerful, patient, helpful members that would enjoy meeting new people and helping them to enjoy the game. That way, when folks role up toons, they could do so on a realm where they had a guild waiting to welcome them.
