Feb 22nd 2010 1:26PM Leading a guild is a tough thing; needing to know when to be fair and when to be tougher, and knowing when it is the right thing to do in any given situation.
You shouldn't be letting these guys hop in when regular raiders fail to show up. Yes, they'd be an excellent choice if you didn't have anyone else and they were they had the proper gear/knowledge/skill, but that's extremely close to rewarding them for their behavior. You have to make it known that your raiders can't just trot off and leave the guild empty for some months and then come back when new content is out and expect their position to still be there waiting.
Does your guild still run old raids? My guild does this all the time when we're not working on new content, mostly to keep the raiders in top shape, but also to help new regulars (or potential regulars) become geared and to do achievements or hard modes. If your guild does, allow these guys to hop in on those, but keep a tight schedule like the normal raids so that they're forced to keep up with it. That way you can see if they're still willing to commit to the guild or if they really don't care; then you have your answer.
Feb 20th 2010 2:29AM Random groups for holiday bosses?
God, I quit WoW months ago and all these updates just make me want to come back. No more painful hours of waiting in LFG to find a group when everybody is just getting runs with their guildies, no more never getting the holiday boss because everybody does it with their guildies, no more failing at arena and being extremely bad in PvP because I can't get the best gear...Blizzard, I love you. Or whoever is doing this anyway.
Feb 19th 2010 3:37PM It's not just a blue radar thing, it's called a "Cat's Eye" and it lets that mob see through stealth/invisibility if you come within aggro range. I believe that it gets weaker the higher level you are from that mob though.

Feb 18th 2010 6:46PM Maybe you should ask Ghostcrawler how he deals with being crabby.
Feb 17th 2010 3:32PM Sounds like someone is angry because they get ganked too much.
Feb 17th 2010 3:18PM Stop complaining about ganking and stop sucking, maybe you won't get ganked. Rogues aren't the only ones who kill lower level players.
