Apr 1st 2009 2:30AM I wanted to point out something from my perspective. Many people feel 10s are easier than 25s. Think about the effort and room for mistake not the hassle of having more raiders together. I like 10s because it's easier to organize. But 25s are far more easy to get through if people make mistakes. For example: Sarth+3D 10 man, you will have a hard time losing just 1 raider. Sarth+3D 25 man, you can lose a couple and still do it just fine so long as people know the fight. In all the 25s I've run, the mistakes are all there and it is still easibly downable. In 10 man, you have to be able to keep everyone alive and work together. Proportionately you have the same ratio of people but the health of bosses are not proportionately the same ratio. My main whiney moment here, is that the Legendary should be dropped from both 10 man and 25 man Hard-Mode Bosses. It's only fair that people have the chance to earn it. The hard modes are harder on 10 man than on 25. Think about it, 10 man Sarth+3D was completed after 25 man Sarth+3D. I feel the difference in gear makes everyone want 25 mans over 10 mans. People just do 10 mans because it's easier to get people together. I honestly feel the gear difference is fair enough. Again I'm all about the Legendary for my Healers or whatever in my guild. I'd like to see my guildies get a fair chance on things regardless of 10/25 man. Thanks for reading.

I also agree with your points. Again, from experience I can say it's true. When you don't show to things or donate or help out at all then expect everyone to drop things for you or to go out of their way for you, it's bound to not happen. Same with ranting on without a solution and just constantly complaining. Ultimatums are usually going to result in the 'second' option. "Give me a rank up or I'll leave the guild" Yes well there was your door, guess you'll be using it. Remember a guild is basically like the Office! Approach the officers like your supervisors and bosses. You do it in an intelligent way, a calm way, and always have something to back your decisions and thoughts. :)
Mar 16th 2009 11:40AM Yes, I completely agree! I cannot tell you how often my members complain about myself as a guild leader or my officers about things not going right. I always try to point out to them how they are always laughing in vent and lol'ing in chat, downing all the bosses, and getting gear. I really don't see what's wrong but they always find something to complain about when they don't get every little thing they want. Something I want everyone to really think about is how Officers and Guild-Leaders alike spend a lot of time and money on making a guild successful while still trying to enjoy the guild. There's a heap of responsibility and drama we must deal with on a daily basis. A guild requires good officers a good guild-leader AND good members. I'm not talkin about members who can raid or know their class like the back of their hand. I mean members who are loyal and willing to have fun and be understanding. Raiding is one thing, friendship and compassion is another, and very important in making a guild successful. My guild has been around nearly 6 years on about 4 different MMO's and thrives thanks to everyone that inhabits Dragons of Abyss. So thank you to everyone with us and everyone who's put that time in! And thank you for bringing up this important topic!
