May 10th 2011 7:38PM I would recommend planning ahead and make sure that you recruit more people than you think you need.
May 10th 2011 7:36PM Recruit someone else now. Don't cave in to any blackmail by raiders. You as the GL or Raid Lead has a responsibility to your team to be fair, equitable and the good of the team is above anyone's specific demands.
You also need to make sure that your loot rules are clear up front and that you don't raid for loot. I set that rule for all our raid teams. All our raid teams get to run autonomously but there are 3 rules that they have to abide by:
1) No abuse of guildies or blackmail for nepotism.
2) You don't run for loot but for fun / challenge.
3) You have to set your rules clearly and make sure that everyone who chooses to run understand them and agree to them.
Each raid lead has their own preference on how they run. One team is rather hard core while another is casual. Their loot rules differ from team to team but it is always clearly communicated up front along with any idiosyncrasies.
Drama and selfishness will kill your raid team.
