We split up the workload a little differently in raids. The GL works out strategies for new bosses, and takes a very hands-on approach as we learn a new encounter.Assistant guild leader takes care of much of the 'backend' stuff like DKP, in addition to doing a large part of the invites.MT is like the Sargent. Once combat starts, he is calling the shots. Unless we are on a new boss, the MT pretty much leads the raid, handing out tanking assignments, CC assingments etc. Healing coordinator handles the healing assignments. GL doesn't do much other than keep the raid moving if needed. The only exception is again, new bosses, where the GL is much more involved in the second-to-second stuff.Role advisors are aslo responsible for many of the invites within their areas, healing, casters, etc. The GL usually provides input if asked, but mostly stays out of invites, relying instead on policies previously established to be followed by those doing invites. There are occasional exceptions, such as if the GL wants to bring in app to evaluate.So we tend to spread the responsibilities of running a raid, putting those best suited for any specific job in a position to lend their expertise to it. This also provides insurance against the crippled raid effect, where a raid simply can't get off the ground only because the RL can't be on that night. We have several people that can fill just about any of the raid organizational roles on any given night.Hmm, sounds more complicated than it really is, now that I look at what I wrote lol!
