Wow, that trick has a huge PvE potential. Cool
..at least as big as the 'generate 100rage with dual wield, then slam it with 2hander' mode.

3. Is it best to get the best players together and depend just on them, or focus on the less-geared players also and get them up, so we have enough for more than 1 raid in BWL/AQ40?

Choose one way, just don't mix them up. IMO the biggest mistake is taking Tier geared people with greenies into one guild:
- Geared people will be bored, because of no progression.
- Greenies will be punished because of "bad play" (weak gear, maybe less experience too = less heal,damage,etc.)
- Geared people will be raged, because new players will get good gear for ~free, while they had to spend hundreds of dkp for them.

--> Creates a tension between the 'core' and the 'new members'.

- Geared people will leave because of constant boredom, without new equipment.
- Greenies are getting geared, and 'core member' status.
- New players are recruited = new greenies.

--> The whole thing starts over. Player profit totally breaks from guild profit.

So IMO, if you can't manage to get a stable group of 40-50 "progress rdy" people, try starting a whole new thing with pre-raid geared characters.

- The member's progress will be even, everyone can, and should get upgrades from raids.
- Because of this, it's everyone's busienss to raid more, and be prepared to raids. Player profit = guild profit.

As I know, SA and Ebb started this way.

Gathering profs, or farming cloth usually have a good income even at lower lvl, especially skinning and felcloth gathering. Smiley

Just put leather/hides to the AH at a fair price (unlike the usual 200g/stack), and I'm quite sure a lazy, yet rich alt will buy them.

Sadly, because of the high XP rates, I don't think there will ever be a LVLing guild here Sad

OR implement a set-my-xp-gain command:)

Off topic:
He just asked who plays Dota here.Please dont flame with others on forums.
Ontopic:Well on Garena you can simply leave the game and join another,wouthout geting baned.On battlenet you get ban,but too many random "Noobs" there.Eurobattle is good for me try it.

Yep, eurobattle is definitely better than the usual 'omg i didn't random my fav hero, kkthxbyegg' servers.
However, it overweights stats instead of winrate: I've got myself kicked from many games because of my <1 K/D ratio, because nobody ever checks assist count there. My K+A/D is 3, which is quite average i think, some high ranked players have less...
I'm just an initiator-support (Earthshaker, Enigma, Warlock, Dazzle, etc.) type of player, so i tend die a lot. And this ladder does not help me statwise, it favors carries way more (pick Mort every game and you'll end up with 5+ K/D after 10 games).

So i just switched to dotalicious. Serious, mostly -cm games with (usually) mature ppl.

I'd go for Divine intellect 5/5 insted of Improved Seal of Righteousness, because you already have the harder hitting Seal of Command.
Also, I'd pick benediction (retri tier 1) for more mana, instead of vindication, because most bosses are immune to that.
