"Bring the gear, not the class"Having recently joined up with a raiding guild on my server, I'm lucky that their system seems to rely on quality of performance, not necessarily high damage output (being a mage competing for DPS slots) or any other aspect of gear. The only gearing requirements I was informed of flat out was having my frost resist gear crafted for Sapphiron, and most people were currently working on that, so everyone was helping each other out with mats and such.The system in the guild seems to be "who can follow instructions and not kill the rest of the raid?" People who survive the Heigan dance, can rotate around Thaddius properly, or get behind the ice blocks on Sapph probably have a better chance of getting into next weeks raid than the perfect spec DPS machine who couldn't dodge a void zone if we gave him a ten second warning.With any luck, more guilds will develop this sort of philosophy as they move through content, or they'll see more and more players shopping around for better places to raid.
