Jan 24th 2008 12:23PM I know both sides. I was in a guild doing SSC/TK then joined a guild farming Illidan.
The guilds farming Illidan raid 1-2 days a week and are saving money and loading up on consumables to break through Sunwell.
I think the hardest thing is not knowing when Sunwell is coming out, because once you gather all your T6 gear, it's like you've beat the game.
These guilds just have members who won't log on until new content is there.
The solution is to keep the members who raid for the sake of raiding and get new people for whom T6 content is fresh.
I mean, it's not a bad position to have the "time off". If you're clearing Hyjal and BT in 2 days, its a good place to be, even if its been for the past 3 months.
Get another hobby.
Aug 7th 2007 9:28AM I transferred after TBC to a EST server. I was tired of raiding until 2-3am on a PST server.
Paid transfers have helped improve the "quality of life" for players like me.
Jul 24th 2007 1:39PM Well what you're describing is guild hopping. You use a guild to gear up and then jump to the next guild in progression.
Oddly enough, people don't have a problem with this if you use a guild to get Kara gear and then jump to a guild thats doing SSC or TK.
I personally think as long as you're honest about your intentions, people will still dislike your decision, but they will respect that you didn't suddenly disappear.
My guild personally has been stuck on Magtheridon, which isn't the worst thing in the world, but I've been wondering what it's like in SSC/TK and Hyjal/BT.
However, there are some cool people to talk to on vent and the environment in between raids is what keeps me around.
