Im going to give my advice iv lead a good portion of guilds and been apart of plenty throughout wow. And there are a few things il say that should help, them being good or bad to others, focus being on you.I myself is a tank and will accept no other role, i wont heal and i wont DPS, Tanking is what i enjoy to do, if im not going to be able to tank i simply leave the guild im in, im here to have fun and tanking to me is fun thus i will settle for no less.Now as you said sometimes guilds dont need tanks and the longer guilds being around the less the need from you, even if they need tanks, dont be so inclined to join right away, well established guilds who need tanks usually dont need a full time tank, they need a tank when there tanks arnt on. So keep a eye out with this, iv joined 2 guilds with this issue where they over recruit and stick with there core anyway and dont go outside that group until needed. You wont be getting much raid time.If you dont see guilds that need you, make one, but understand making one requires a plan of attack. First off make sure when you get people you dont get just any people, make sure to get people around your gear and goals. I recently came back after a 3 month break and ran a guild prior who cleared all the content at the time being. I have come back and i dont like the leadership in most of the guilds on the server, so i made my own and made it clear the goals where, essentially we are a ulduar only guild and arnt taking people who still need plenty of gear from naxx. Just by this iv gained back some of my old guildies from before and other looking to move on who are stuck in there guild.Have a plan of attack, make sure you complete most of w/e your goal is before getting and 2nd group if your wish is 25 mans. ITs a general rule of thumb, that way come time for group 2, groups done fall behind, you split your original group up with the new ones and go from there, keep in mind you can only do so much.Im sure this next part is something you wont here anywhere else. Sometimes destroying a guild is your best bet. Yup i said it, ever been in a guild with alot of cool issues but there is a glarring problem that everyone accepts and you cant change due to leadership or something(usually tends to be a asshole leader,something to do with loot,or raids in general)? well dont just leave, use it to your advantage. This is your moment to make a coup , talk to other fed up with it, make a big stink when the glaring issue comes up, take your following with you. Bam new guild on your terms.hope this helps :)
