How do we handle people who are not prepared for the raid? Kick them. There are always more fish in the sea for "THIS IS BLACKROCK!"

Thats completely stupid. Look I haven't done the endgame raids but screw any guild that tells me I dont have the right gems....I mean, are you serious? Well hell if you want me to have all this certain stuff then the guild should pay for their members to have the gear and specs that they deem they must. If not, then you have no right to tell someone how to play.

Majeere has never raided a day in their life, and I'd wager they've never played any kind of competitive sport or excelled in any group effort, where success depends on every person doing the best they can in order to meet a goal.

@MajeereI laugh at the naivete, or perhaps just plain stupidity, of your comment. If all raiders had this sense of BS entitlement, no guild would last long enough to down anything resembling a raid boss.

Correct, Majeere, they have no right to tell someone how to play. But those raiders then have no right to tell the raid leaders to tell them. In order to be successful, you need to be dressed for success. That means having gear appropriate to what you're attempting to do and having it enchanted and gemed properly. If you don't, that's one person who is going to be less effective than he can be. And these are the days of the old 40-man raids when 25 people could effectively carry fifteen other people to the loot; between the weird spike damage, rage timers, and various other factors, it's much less feasible to take people into a raid who aren't going to pull their weight and even prepare to be successful.I doubt anyone is advocate docking a priest who comes in all Bonus Healing gems or even a lot of Intellect gems. That's a variation of playstyle (and one that I probably wouldn't agree with, though I could maybe understand the reasoning). However, if I saw a priest come into a raid with Defense gems or Attack Power gems I'd have to question if he's ready or suitable for the raid.

Well, I buggered up again! Blame it on the early morning."Correct, Majeere, they have no right to tell someone how to play. But those raiders then have no right to tell the raid leaders to TAKE them."Corrected!

I didn't mean to make such a hot topic here but i still stand by my comment. If the person is not spec'd or geared properly for their class, we can just find someone else who cares enough to do it right.
