A group of 4 of us leveled together every Monday night. One thing that worked well recently for the group was to elect a "captain" every week. That person would be responsible for deciding what instance/quests to run, finding a 5th from friends or PUG, and generally either leading the run (marking mobs, deciding which strategies to use) or appointing someone to do the same.We've since combined our group with a similarly group of about 5-10 casual raiders and been running Kara and ZA successfully. While there is really one or two RLs working our twice weekly raids, doing the same organizing + calling out the fights and markings, it's still a very similar system.I suggest you introduce the role of captain, and have people volunteer to do it (first off by saying that you would NOT be doing it). You can still offer to raid lead -- say that you'll be available to run the raid real-time, mark the mobs, etc. -- but that will initially offload the organization and communication tasks from you to a captain. From there, you can then begin further encouraging other people to help you out... train someone on mob marking, for instance, or let them lead the first few bosses of Kara. That's a good way to mentor a few people into taking on the actual leading of the raids, breaks up the responsibility.Finally, don't hesitate to tell people that you're burning out because of this and need to compartmentalize these responsibilities if the group is going to continue into Kara.
