Completely agree with making the interested raiders go through the established process. I also agree that the process should be examined as well. More important than gear or skill is compatibility. Anyone can get gear and practice makes perfect, but you're not going to change someone's personality. If you run a few heroics with someone and find them irritating, you don't want that person around during hard progression runs no matter how geared. Remember, it's only one well-geared person. A bonus, yes, but I'd trade 500 dps for raiding with someone I liked. We're here to have fun. One person will not enable a T4 guild down Archimonde, but one person can ruin everyone's fun real fast. Also, do not forget your current members. Guys (and gals) who struggled through Kara, Gruul's, and Mags are gonna be upset if they lose raid spots to people who obviously don't need anything below T6. Dance with the one who brung ya; in other words, loyalty matters. These are the people who are gonna help with the tough Wrath raids. A ronin today will probably find some hardcore raiding guild once Wrath is released. Let them. You can use their knowledge and expertise on fights: one of our guildies has a main who cleared Sunwell pre-patch and he remains quiet except to note important aspects our raid leader might have missed. But don't rely on them, rely on your loyal base.Quickly, if you feel your process is long and involved, get your officers together and streamline it.
