I am an officer in a small casual/social guild, which has aspirations of developing into casual raiding. We have always had 6 or 7 members who know their classes inside & out, and work hard gearing to end game content. To the point where we even had people clearing ICC outside of the guild during wrath. But when it came to guild runs at best we could only make 4/12 icc. We have taken a new attitude to cataclysm, due to recruitments we have now got an improved roster of 15 85's who are working towards raiding. I have volunteered the role of Raid leader and we have gone back and worked on old raids to practice coordinations and raid etiquette etc.....And focusing on new content I have created 3 fixed (5) man groups who are now working their way through cataclysm heroics. We have given the individual teams names (so as not to undermine people with the Team 1 is better then Team 2 analogy)Also we coordinate the runs on alternate nights, and at varying times. We also ask members to be online even if their group is not running incase of late or absent members from neighbouring groups.I feel this is working well for our guild, I know the true challenge will come when we begin our first cataclysm raid, selection etc....What I have chosen to base my selection on has been approved by the members, and as I say is a point that may yet be challenged in practice.Raid composition and selection is based entirely on the success chances of the fight (individual) for the group..... Once we are confident on success we will then look at loot, if a hunter doesnt need loot then I will drop and bring in an alternative member that suits the composition requirement.Raid selection:Success>Class>LootAlways bring your best to help the rest :)
