Give it up. Obviously no one wants it because they are not willing to work at it. Start alt raiding or picking up/ test running pugs to fill out team 2. It might be a good idea to explain why you have the gear minimums and where to find the stuff to help get you up to snuff. Definitions here to consider. Casual = ? relaxed, unscheduled, fun, no need for rules or "Just Do It!" type stressers........ If they understand that they are not going to have fun if they are constantly wiping due to being under geared that might change things.I like the Class Coach concept too. I remember several high level rogues setting in the levelling zones they would say stuff in passing like. "Most Raiders work Combat tree", or after having watched me down a Mob. "Put the slow knife in the main hand, fast one in the left, you'll kill it faster". Those dropped hints told me there was more to the game and building your toon than met the eye..........Face it most "Casual" raiders have either slid back from the hardcore min/max'ers who will change and level a profession for that extra half% of oomph, or they are the read the EJ's while on coffee break at work crowd. What you have, and are trying to put into a raid, are casual players. When they have some free time they go play WoW as their preferred recreation some where are the "Kalgon take me away" level. They are not all that interesteds in "Shaken not Stirred" and such complications. Fine keep them in the guild- their casual bashing about the world helps keep the bank stocked for raiders, and is good for guild exp. Fair enough, they have a guild name so do not get spammed by the "Joinme's" and have a place to stash stuff temporarily when the bags fill up...... They will appreciate stuff like which glyphs are most helpful and maybe some hints about speccs- but the gemming and enchanting, com'awn they do not have gear with the sockets or the GP to purchase the mats............if they knew what enchant was the best.Class Coaches would probably help them see the light or understand why they are not going on a raid until they meet standards. They can take whatever time they take, but until they clear the minimums they can't go since it affects everyone else's ability to do the deed........
