Some good advice there. This should help me deal with this other moonkin in my guild; I wasn't quite sure how to bring it up to him without hurting any feelings.

What irks me are the people that don't seem to care for improving either with assistance or by themselves and yet still expect a raid spot.

@Rakah - I agree, I frequently encounter this in the guild I am in. I am in the largest guild on my server (in terms of active 80s) and it is decidedly casual. I run the most consistently progressed ICC 10 in the guild getting to Sindy in a night then wiping (another team managed to down Sindy and has been extending its Arthas lock for the past month because, as the RL told me, they don't think they can get back to him... but somehow think they can down him /boggle) and as such I receive a lot tells from people who say they want to participate. When I tell them what is expected of them (x amount of dps, specific job on x boss) they often balk and then get all passive aggressive in guild chat saying things like "people won't let me raid", "Gearscore is oppressing me, did you see it oppressing me?". So I've started telling people to expect to be treated a certain way based on the content they say they want to run vs. your ability. If all you want to do is run your dailies and weekly, cool, have fun and I'll give you a "grats" when you get the achievement for the first wing of Ulduar when you do the Ignus weekly. When you have a 5.3k gs and I just watched you struggle to hit 3k dps on the patchwerk weekly and then you turn around and demand that I take you to ICC, I'm going to laugh at you, and possibly publicly humiliate you. If you have a 4.5k gs but you just did 6k dps in that same Naxx weekly, then get ready for some cheevo spam cause you are going 10/12 in ICC in a few hours.

@Max I see this problem as well - people who float along and have no desire to do any better. I did passively mention that if you had a 5.5k gearscore (which they all do) and were doing 5k dps in ICC still - there's something wrong, but that didn't plant any seeds because everyone except me is doing 5k dps.They should have an easy mode server for people like this - because basically they are what I think of as loot sponges. You have 2-3 people doing most all the dps one or two people doing all the healing etc. It makes bosses really hard to down :(.
