Being a druid it has always been me and maybe 2 others. When I join a guild they only have 1 or 2 druids active and the leader is the one who did not turn it down. Most the time the druid leader does not even want to be leader they were just defaulted. I have been in several big raiding guilds and that is always the case. I always here about the other classes being real together. They negotiate before a raid over who is getting what and seem like a group. Mainly because there are always more of them. There might be other groups like paladins like this but I don't know. I have never seen a guild pick leaders based on any criteria other than that person has been in the guild the longest and shows up to all the raids. My druid leader now is a great guy we get along just fine. He has given me a lot of tips and is a good leader. Not sure if you would call it a leader since there are only 3 of us active. There are not even backups. The other classes have quite a few that raid and tons of backups.I think guilds should be more selective about guild leaders and not just pick the person that plays that class the best. You need somebody who is the best leader. That is not always the person at the top of the charts.

You know, I've never liked the idea of class leaders.I'd day 50% of 60s-70s know what they're doing but on the other hand you get hunters that can't trap, ret pallies that think they can tank but can't find Consecration, arms warriors who insist on tanking (yes, with board and sword but generate squat for threat), priests who get improved Fade....Anyway, this whole thing just about wanting to be an officer should be clear. There's no reason you have to be an officer to do things for your guild. None! There's nothing preventing you from donating to the guild bank, offering advice, or informing officers of what you percieve as a problem.You take the burden without the title and maybe you'll have it made official.
