I wanted to address a second aspect of your column which is that of native server skill level. If folks want to avoid having to rely on the unknown variables of cross realm recruiting, then it becomes the responsiblity of the progressed on the server to help the less progressed. Various servers accomplish this in a variety of ways.Some servers have a history of pug activity for raid content which allows those with more experience a dkp free way to hit up retired content, as well as check out the potential recruit pool. It allows those new to raiding some opportunity to learn content and acquire gear, as well as making connections with people from guilds they might like to apply to in the future.On some servers the guilds who have cleared TBC may volunteer some time to help out up and coming guilds either running their alts or mains--OR having their alts join an up and coming "weekends" guild to run with lower geared/lower experienced mains to get through the content.Some people bemoan this idea of assisting folks not in your guild--but the reality is that if you are not grooming your native skill, you are in a state of atrophy on your server and you will be *forced* to rely on cross realm recruitment.FWIW I'm in a BT/MH guild and I support the idea of working with native skill on the server to increase the amount of knowledge, gearing, and skill that is available locally.
