At some point, trying to hold onto a dieing guild is just hard. One person can't really keep a whole raiding guild together, and it is really the leadership that makes a guild hold together. I would personally recommend abandoning ship based out of experience. Going down with the ship really just is NOT fun.

On that note, does anyone have advice from rebuilding a guild from scratch? I'm my guild's only active member right now, and I've got full permission to do what I please with it. It has a few levels already and a good bank, so it wouldn't be from scratch in that regard. I myself am pretty well established and have several 85s covering all the major roles and a good chunk of the useful professions.

@terph - As a guild leader myself, I would say you need to know what kind of guild you are interesting in pouring lots of time and sometimes literal blood, sweat, and tears into. There are plenty of wonderful articles in Officer's Quarters and around the internet for raiding guilds and some of RP guilds, but I feel that advice for a social and/or casual guild is a bit lacking. I run a social guild and found a wow blogging community to recruit from, initially. Your mileage may vary on this, but overall it's worked out quite well. I would say that being a guild leader is probably the most rewarding and frustrating thing I've ever done in-game. I'm not trying to discourage you from taking up the mantle, but it's good to know what you're in for - good and bad. I wish you luck if you choose to really get that guild going!
