we're a casual guild that raids and this column speaks volumes to what we deal with every week. We spread the "love" of leading raids among myself, the MT and the MH. We discuss the strats, figure out who needs to do what while everyone else sits back and pew pews and QQs about not getting their loot.The only thing I wished you touched on is what to do about people who don't carry their weight. We have some folks who just don't get it. No matter how many times we do Moroes or R&J they'll always ask 10 times "who do we attack first?" and they still manage to attack the wrong target and have to whispered and told in vent to attack the right target. It would be personally gratifying to just bench them week after week and not deal with it, but that would hurt feelings and if they weren't there, we might not have a full run.

In my guild we're having the same problem. Most of the raid has been playing together for ages - entering Kara with blues and greens. We fought hard to defeat each boss, we got stuck on Moroes for weeks, then stuck on Curator etc slowly gearing up.However, now those raiders have about 1 item left from Kara and have gone on to do other raids. Each week we're bringing in more and more of our guildies to gear them up as we wish to do Gruuls as a guild. But we've got 2 major problems:1. New raider rolls higher than the experienced raider on that amazing drop and wins. Happened to me... man that hurts.2. New raiders are slack! The new healers sit back in the fight and brag about how they don't run out of mana... new mage has good gear, good spec and bad dpsThe frustrating thing is that we offer advice whenever we can but they don't take it seriously. Bring in too many of the new players and they wipe on the earlier bosses - when I know they have enough gear to do it!Any advice on how to toughen up new raiders without causing the whole raid to wipe over and over again?ps. The only way to get people to show up on time (in my experience) is to make it clear they are not guaranteed a spot... and that the invite will go to whomever is online first.
