Get 'em while they're young. Er, so to speak. You'll have a much better chance raising some fine players than trying to inform a 68 ret pally how to AOE tank or teach a 70 warrior how to multi-mob tank....I understand that not everyone seeks out the wisdom of the more experienced. Some will remember what you tell them and others won't. People spamming raid warnings in my PUG get booted. First BOP item to get greeded, that's a warning (mostly because I'd rather not sit on my thumb looking for a replacement after that far in). Hunter tags the moon right after it's sheeped? Guess who's tanking it for a couple seconds?Explaining desirable stats for certain classes and specs, theorycrafting talent builds, class/profession synergy, etc., etc.... I've only got one 70 but that hasn't stopped me from learning all I can on other classes, playing with talent builds and looking comments of abilities (talented and trainable). I've explained to warlocks in my guild what they should be looking for, that thunderclap can be used in defensive stance, how to line of sight pull casters.... As I said before, some will catch on. Others? Not always.... There's only so much you can teach in PUGs before you have an untimely D/C or need a "quick brb" that turns into an afk. Guildies seem to either learn or leave. Taught a warlock that he needed some god damn stam (level 70, barely breaking 5k HP) and spell hit. Last I saw, he was pushing affliction spec and enough spell hit to tag level 76s.
