upon release of Wotlk, I found myself rolling a death knight to fill in for one of my guild's tanks that were going to be leaving the game. little did i know that this would eventually lead me into the raid leader position for my guild. i can hear what "anonymous" is talking about... being the RL is a stressful job, without question. it takes time and focus, you have to be the guy that knows what's going on at all times how things should go... you have to have a knowledge of pretty much every class that's in your raid and the utilities you have at your disposal. i'm not surprised at all, raid leaders get worn out the quickest in most circumstances. my best advice would be to follow Scott's advice here... take a nice break, let's the assistant raid leader take over for a bit, see how it goes. If everything is going smoothly and you're enjoying sitting back, maybe retiring from being the boss man is for you. if you still find yourself wanting to be that guy dishing out the commands a few weeks later though, you'll probably want to rethink giving it up so easily. don't make any final decisions until you are absolutely sure, because like Scott said, this isn't football. you can't be the QB that retires and go make commercials for the rest of your career. you're still out there with the team 3-5 days a week and you gotta live with this new guy that has your old seat.
