I left my guild at the end of wrath for a more "progressive" raiding guild. Cata hit and we went 11/12 within the first month, but I soon realized hardcore raiding wasn't my thing. I took my leave of the new guild, explaining that id rather be more laid back in my playing, they understood, and I requested a re-invite to my previous guild. I've worked up the ranks and am now an officer in my original guild and do not intend to ever leave it again. Sure the faster paced progression was a nice ego boost but as I say to all my guildies when they suggest I join a pug with them on a week that the guild doesn't raid "id rather not raid one week than get yelled at by an opressive raid leader and just down some bosses next week when all of our friends are able to get together".As you stated, sometimes we have to see for ourselves that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, and id never hold it against anyone who wants to leave our group for something more progressive, however, as you also stated if it becomes a pattern and we become somebodys safety net then id be inclined to not have them return.

Id also like to add that I was offered to be the first to get the legendary and turned down the offer. I remember an article here listing reasons someone should receive the staff and although I listed them to our GM/RL as a reason why the mage in our group should receive it first. There's also the fact that I sometimes have to sub as a tank and it would just take the guild that much longer to complete the staff if I was only receiving embers half the time while the mage received them when I had to tank.Although id love the staff I can wait until after the mage completes stage 1 to start collecting my embers.

Be aware that not all hardcore guilds are like that, and that there are some guilds out there that raid hardcore, with fast progression, where people aren't jerks, everyone gets along and they have that friends and family vibe. It's rare, but it does exist. So don't assume just because you like the people in your current guild it's impossible to find a group of raiders who raids up to your level you also enjoy spending time with.
