"But if you're leading a PvE guild and you aren't raiding, you will attract only the players who aren't interested in raiding at all -- and in my experience those players are very hard to find these days."Ahem. *Raises his hand*I used to find raiding fun, but it's just too much of an investment of time for me do on a regular basis. 5-mans, on the other hand, are short enough that this isn't an issue. I may be in the minority as a PvE player who isn't interested in raiding, but we do exist.

I'm kind of in this group lately as well. I used to love raiding. It was always the number one thing I wanted out of WoW, but over time it seemed to get stale. I didn't enjoy spending 3-4 solid hours in a serious environment. I have the time to dedicate to raiding when it is pre-scheduled. I just don't want to spend that much solid time on the computer anymore. So lately I have been starting to look for social/casual guilds. I invite available guild members for dungeons runs, but most of them will eventually pass on to a raiding guild. They just joined to take a break from the stress of raiding for a few weeks. So the guild is more a chatroom to me. I tackle dungeon content with pugs and occasional friends or work on achievements and dailies. These guilds also usually don't last long because there's nothing really going on. No guild activities, just everyone doing their own thing.

And me as well. In fact, that was the main thought running through my head while reading this column... "He doesn't know of any non-raiding demographic in WOW? Time to introduce myself!"I'm fine with dungeons and PUGs (and exploring and questing and leveling and roleplaying and achievements...). Not everyone's a raider, and it would be silly to assume that even casual guilds "HAVE" to get into raiding to survive and prosper.Diff'rent strokes.
