In a guild that only runs 10 man, it's easy. Either foster an environment where the top performers want to help the new players get where they need to be, or spread your raiders into more raid groups than you can handle completely in guild, and pug for the left over spots.The first way is how we do things in my guild- we're lucky that our top performers and senior members want to see the guild progress as much as they want to progress their own characters. This leads to many gifts of craftable epics and raid consumables, as well as raid slots. When we all need to learn an encounter, we're not above quietly asking the bottom 2 performers to take a break so we can sub in the experts, but once we know the fight, we're equally likely to sub out someone who we know can do it and sub in someone who needs work (on gear or learning the encounter)The second way can work for the more traditional guilds whose members are a little less likely to donate or volunteer things that help them to players who need them more. It ensures that everyone gets a spot in a raid group, and as long as your PUG members are about as geared and experienced as your new guild members, you won't have that much trouble clearing wings in Naxx. The beauty of raiding is that one well geared and experienced player can lead a rag-tag group of badly geared Naxx first timers to a couple of boss kills the first time out, and then it just gets easier from there.
