The summer slowdown plus the release of AoC hit every raiding guild on our server. We ended up stepping backwards a bit to gear up a lot of new members and get them comfortable with how we raid, but the choice was either doing that or giving up. Sounds to me like Neur needs to get the primary RL to get a second RL trained to run raids the same way he does. As GM/Primary RL of our guild, I can tell you that running 25s is a daunting task, and nobody quite appreciates how difficult until they do it themselves. It takes practice and patience. I'd suggest getting the second RL up to speed in farm content, and leaving progression/newer bosses for the established RL. That in conjunction with some newer members who need gear from the farm content should be a good shot in the arm for raid attendance.

Im also the GM / Primary RL of a guild.This is a universal problem assoiciated with any monolithicaly top down organized guild. When i first started the guild i had a friend with me i tried to get to share the raid running load.People simply did not like the way he talked to them, organized pulls, or organized fights.After trying it that way for a while we eventually settled into just having me run all the raids.Now a year and a half later, i am trying to train another raid leader (one that i think may have the right balance of ass and coddle). The right balance of "nice guy" and "jerk" is very hard to find.There is no easy fix for this kind of a problem.Just keep an eye and ear out for a player in the same general mold as your current raid leader.
