Apr 29th 2011 3:16PM I run a raid group for my guild, and have been given the name of the boot. Why? If someone is lacking in raid performance for multiple raids, even after a gear upgrade, then I give them the boot, permanently. I run a 2nd raid group much like our writer here, and can totally understand his frustration. What I do is start by going over the fight in its interity if one person hasn't done the fight, because that means more than likely there are others who haveny as well. This is NOT a bad thing. It's also not a bad thing if you don't down a raid boss that night, as long as you are progressing on the boss.
One way that I like to recruit new raid members, is to PuG in trade for heroics, yes I am a tank. This can be painful and brutal, and very tiring, however I found the two best healers in my guild by recruiting them from other guilds. Getting new members from other guild isn't as bad as others point it out to be as well. Sure, you may be taking from somebodys raid group, but if someone is already willing to switch guilds, then their guild cleary is not meeting their expectations.
Raid leadership is not something you can perfect, but once you get a real solid set of expectations set and met with your raid group, replacing people will become as cookie cutter as finding and kicking guild members.

Oct 29th 2008 11:29AM Ya. Being that my main is a rogue, I can completely identify with this. I'm the main DPS rogue in my guild (I've been around since pre-bc) and I've tanked many a boss from 8-10% to its doom. Whats better than people making fun of you for wearing leather? Saving their ass, and having them begging to leave your guild afterwards.
I find this post extremely necessary in the days when people are hitting 70 quicker than I first hit 30. C'mon blizzard. If you're going to make it easy to level, make the last 5 levels an extremely agonizing, painful, demoralizing gauntlet of skill. Then people would actually L2P.
Take that back, I would rather be top game. GG!
Oct 6th 2008 11:21AM Honestly. I think I'm gonna hop on my Belf lock, and mana tap that. Nah for real, they seem to be into that whole freakish, corrupting/fel/undeath thing. Hell, my Nelf rogue might just have to sneak in there and give a little distrat with a long pick pocket before I leave...
Me is joking for you to know.
