My general rules for raid leading:1. I absolutely CAN and WILL judge you by your gear. If you have empty sockets, unenchanted gear, or level 70 items then you clearly don't care enough about raiding to do the best you can. It's VERY easy to find people that ARE trying. You get replaced. 1a. It's very rare that I would boot someone for regular raids because their gear was too low, but it's dependent on the instance level. Very skilled players can (and do) perform well generally *despite* their gear levels but there is a certain level of gear for which it's impossible to do adequate dps in a raid. For me personally that level is having below an item level 200 average gear score.2. If I *do* have to boot someone for low dps, I generally try to give them a heads up along the lines of "If we fail again, I'm going to have to remove the lowest dps and right now that's you". Only rarely do people get upset (which they WOULD be if you just up and booted them) and when they DO get upset I just tell them "If you don't want to get the boot, don't be the lowest on the damage meter."3. Go ahead and line up a replacement before you boot someone even if it means giving them one more fail try. Nothing can tear up a raid faster than wiping a few times and then sitting around looking for better players. 'Cause all the good players in YOUR raid are looking around for better groups.
