Recently I started running a raidgroup in my guild. Came as a spontaneous decision, because a lot of new members in the guild had recently leveled to 70, and were busy QQing in /g that nothing ever happens here. "/g LF9M karazhan" and we were in kara, and wiping horribly. We didn't even down Attumen that night.So, couple hard words and wowhead links later, there was a new record in our guild's raid signup webpage, people started to take these runs seriously, and now we have gradually progressed from wiping on Shade, to one evenig kara, to doing ZA and planning on doing 10-man progression in WotLK.What I wanted to say here - don't be afraid to step up. It's nowhere as bad as it might look like. The most demanding skill of a raidleader is being able to prat on voice comm for most of the evening. And leading from the position of the MT isn't as hard as people make it sound. If you know your thing, you'll have tons of spare time.One more thing - if your group has people you know are expierienced with the instance, allow them to speak. Retain the right to last word, but don't silence them because you are the leader. They might see things you have overlooked, and that might mean a ton.
