Great article, Adam. I couldn't agree more with you on points 1 and 2. Over time, general guild morale suffers when 1 and 2 are not followed each and every raid. While I agree that these bosses can be "raid killers," it's more often because of how the raid leaders handle the encounters and their fellow guildmates and not the bosses themselves.When raid leaders call you out for making stupid mistakes in front of anyone, or simply presume that you are "tired" or not paying attention without asking you privately, it leaves a sour taste in your mouth for sure. It seems like nowadays, raid leaders prefer to make an example of you in front of everyone in order to prove their point and get you to step up your game. A private tell would do wonders instead.It should also be noted that even farmable bosses have random aspects to their fights, and raid leaders need to respect those situations as well. There's nothing like walking into a fight, expecting it to be easy, and getting your you-know-what handed to you. Then on top of that, being told that you're stupid because the guild had killed the boss previously.Memorizing everything from bosskillers and elitisjerks does not make you a great raid leader.RaidOrg - http://raidorg.com - Helping World of Warcraft Guilds Manage Raids

Excellent article, our guild is working on Vashj and the complication level has increased tenfold with that fight. All of these are great suggestions to keep things moving.
