"I hear tales of guilds that did mass invites only to jettison most of the members after the guilds hit level 25." -- What they're doing is mass inviting to level the guild into the 20's then selling it for a tidy profit. They're selling the ping-pong paddles that they stole. Been through it with a different situation and ending. It's one of my biggest beefs with the new Guild Leveling system. In the post-cataclysm world folks need to be very careful about where they invest their time and efforts. Bliz has make it VERY difficult to start up a new guild or to move a guild from server to server. (Guild rep, however, is mostly fluff -- losing it means you've maybe lost or have delayed access to pets and mounts.) If you have a group of people who's willing to put in the work -- then go for it. Hopefully it will be easier now with the Guild Challenges raising the rep gains / caps.If you go to a new server/guild and try to integrate a raid into an exisitng guild.... that can be a mess. Personality classes, sniping your raid members, fears that you will snipe their raid members, concerns over the culture of their guild, etc.. I'd suggest joining into a "mega" guild that already has a number of raiding groups. If you were trying to do this. It may be more impersonal, but they're likely to be more stable. Another option is to keep an alt in the old guild and, if the new guild leader gets bored with out anyone to play ping-pong with and request leadership if he goes AWOL for 30 days.
