I'm the the paladin class leader and officer of my guild. And since we are horde, paladins ain't really easy to find. The top guilds on our server picked them off before they event were ripe. I spent weeks and weeks announcing in recruitment channel and trade channel, with little to no success.So I tell our guildies to keep an eye out, when they do PUGs or just random quests, for good paladins. And it usually is a better way as your guildies can see with their own eyes what these kind of people are like, and vice verse.Sometimes when we are 4 guildies running a heroic and no other from the guild can join we take a random that maybe someone know. We do a perfect heroic run, everyone show that they know what they are doing, and are friendly. After we mention that he played good, and hint that maybe he would be interested in joining us. And the next day that guy apply to us.We have picked up countless people just this way, without even actively trying to recruit.Also when I see a level 70 paladin with epic gear standing in a city with no guild, my first impulse is to whisper him to join us. But then he probably get 50 of those whispers a day, why would he join our guild when he can get so much better? I usually finds it better to start a conversation with the guy, discussing random things and being generally nice, not really mentioning that we desperately need him. I want nice people in my guild, not their epic gear, and I intend to show it.
