How do you handle recruiting in pugs?I don't cause most pugs I'm in are usually pretty crap. Then again im the kinda player that everyone wants in there guild and get asked often... why must i be a healer everyone likes.

As long as you're above room temperature and can heal, everyone likes you.

That's why you never pug more then 2 slots at once. Pugs are crap if everyone is random, but usually if you weed out the randomness a bit you can get through everything just fine.One good method my guild found is I'm a healer decently geared, and we have a tank who can do Naxx just fine. We have a few trailing guildies that could use some regular instances . Basically as long as we get two dps who can auto-attack we can go with no problems. It's this sort of situation where you encounter a lot of people who are in guilds that don't help them, and might be looking for another guild - especially seeing over geared people helping junior members out. You may also get loot whores this way though.This of course only works for dps, because healers don't pug and a bad tank will get you killed even if everyone else is uber (therefore I wouldn't recommend trying to pug the tank for recruitment purposes only).

@ zappo: "because healers don't pug"not always true. I used to be on during the day when most of my guildmates weren't. I like 5 mans, and badges/rep/emblems, so I PUGged. when asked if I wanted to jump ship, I always replied, 'No I love my guild. But feel free to whisper me if you need a healer for something."

Unfortunately, I am a healer and must PUG due to a very small group. In fact, I have never been on a guild run, and have never once been "poached".

Shionia - haha, actually I pug too. But I would say that it's hard to just run around and Pug a healer. They're in high demand, and if you're going to run someone through something, it's hard to justify holding the whole operation up for a healer when someone in your guild could already do it. I also feel guilty about recruiting any healer that's in a guild because it happens to me all the time and it's annoying. So trying to recruit healers this way is not my cup of tea.
