My 2 younger brothers had been playing WOW long before I started, so when I started playing, they got me into their guild, which lasted all of a week, when my brothers left and started their own guild, which I joined.Eventually it was decided to join an end game guild, and keep alts and whatever on the guild we had started.The first "end game" guild we went to never raided.The second "end game" guild could never get enough people together to raid.The third end game guild actually did do raids, but as far as lvling (i was still around lvl 50 when we joined this guild) or even instance running, it was a nightmare to get groups for either. Lots of people left the guild over this. The guild leaders in response began booting people out, saying that removing the trash would make us a stronger guild and better at end game instances. They never ran another raid after that as they never had more than 13 people on at any given time (even peack time Saturday night). At one point, one guild leader said "We are a raidin guild, not a lvling guild, don't ask for help or run throughs in the guild chat". This is when I decided I was not staying. I stayed for one more week in hopes I could get help for my dreadsteed. I did get help from a warrior and a priest... and a mage who had left the guild a week earlier.I understand the concept of an end game guild, but when you're not raiding then theres no reason not to go out and run instances or help guildies. I can understand if people were asking for instances runs or help while the guild was in a raid, but they didn't run raids that often anyway.I just think a guild should be a place to go look for help instead of spamming the general chat.I'm in another guild now, we'll see how that works out. So far I have gotten help from guildies, but there are rarely any on at the same time I am. I've taken to adding good players to my friends list and going to them for instance groups. I find this to be much easier than the lookingforgroup channel or the LFG tool (as it seems no one ever uses the tool).
