Officers’ Quarters: Raiding without characters


Every Monday, Scott Andrews contributes [hide]Officers’ Quarters[/hide], a column about the ins and outs of guild leadership. He is the author of [hide]The Guild Leader’s Handbook[/hide], available now from [hide]No Starch Press[/hide].

A question for the readership: How important is it to you that the players you raid with are interesting and engaging people? Is it essential, or merely a bonus?

This week, a raid leader complains that his guildmates are [hide]boring[/hide] — to the point that he’s considering leaving the guild altogether. He wants to know what he can do to inject some much-needed personality into the guild.

Hi Scott

I read your column regularly and find it very insightful. I have implemented various pieces of advice within my guild to varying degrees of success so thank you for this. Now however its my turn to pose a question.

How do you create a guild with character? Let me explain this a bit with some history. I have been raid leader for my guild for the last 7-8 months and in the last 2 I inherited the GM tag as he didn’t have much time to play. I was practically doing all the work anyway so this wasn’t an issue. My issue is two fold, firstly I don’t think I really like anyone in the guild apart from one person. And secondly it seems like I play with a bunch of automatons. This isn’t to say I dislike anyone but its just they all seem to lack any sort of character and wouldn’t say boo to a goose![hide]Continue reading Officers’ Quarters: Raiding without characters[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Officers’ Quarters (Guild Leadership)[/hide][hide]Officers’ Quarters: Raiding without characters[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Mon, 01 Aug 2011 14:00:00 EST.
