This article seems to be really close-minded. It's amazing to me how some people can't see beyond their own view of the world."While I'm personally not too keen on bringing undergeared players for an epic train ride" Why the heck not? If you put yourself in their position would you be happy to get told "sorry, you need better gear" when they're in perfect gear for the instance? If it's a guild member help the damn guild member out! They may prove incredibly useful later on, and you will probably lose them with such an elitist attitude. Drops + badges will get that player geared up VERY quickly.Does ONE player seriously make your 2.5 hour run turn into a 5 hour run? I suggest you try running kara with 9 people. When you clear it in three hours stop being such a jerk and bring someone who needs gear along to fill the last spot, they can't make it take any longer.And yes, outside of your elitist raiding bubble of a world there are plenty of guilds still struggling in Kara, the majority of them being casual guilds that simply don't have a solid ten people to come every week so they pull in who's available. People with families (i.e. wives) who don't play WoW and spend quality time together on picnics, at baseball games, etc... don't care enough about a video game to commit so much time to it, and those are the people still having fun with the challenge that is Kara without overgearing it. You sound like one of those players who goes into an instance jumping around all the time and whining if the loot they wanted didn't drop, telling the entire raid how many times they have killed that boss without a drop. I doubt this is you, but you never know.p.s. i'm in a sunwell raiding guild. However, i have many RL friends who are having a blast in Kara when they get a run together, and find defeating a new boss a great accomplishment. I'm always glad to join their runs on my nights off to help out explaining strategies and w/ dps. When my guild runs Kara we always find at least one person who needs gear, as disenchanted items are a complete waste. We have recruited many players through pugging a tenth and finding fantastic personable people with skill, or the willingness to learn.
