Good stuff. Number 3 is really important. The raid lead, and anyone else that is involved in strategy development for your guild, should be sure to do their homework on the fight before hand. Then break the fight down into manageable stages/jobs and be sure to explain to everyone what needs to happen to progress farther through the encounter.These fights can be very daunting, but if your lead/leaders have broken everything down so that everyone knows what specific elements need improvement and can see the progress it helps keep everyone focused and working together. There will most likely be a number of raid nights invested before you start getting in sight of a kill, but if you have mastered another element of the fight on a night that is a victory as well.Additionally, recognize when you need to go back and change something you thought you had down should it prove to not be consistently repeatable. Just because you get past a specific phase a couple times does not mean you can focus on the next phase entirely now. It can seem demoralizing on the night to say 'ok stop, we obviously need to go back and find a better way to do xx' when you thought you had it down, but the end goal should not be a single lucky kill, but the ability to come back numerous times and execute your strat with consistent success. The challenge for the leader is to help people see this, and recognize the progress you are making towards that end.
