I plan on raiding in Cata but would like to see what we end up with at 85 in terms of total ppl interested or who have come back. You should all read the MMO Champion blue post on the flex raid lock system it is interesting and something we may looks at taking advantage at some point. After reading some of the beta feedback, I don't think leveling in 4 weeks will be the problem, but gearing for the entry level raid instance may present some timing challenges, as I don't think it will be anything like WOTLK leveling and walking into Naxx10 clearing a lot of it while still wearing T6 gear from BT or 5-man heroics being a zerg fest.. I am personally in no hurry to push raid content so that I am always so bored waiting for more content, I know we have the talent to be a top tier raid(s) in Cata but at our pace.
The first question I want to pose as I feel as a guild we will alienate the non-officer members like we did at the end of WOTLK, is who will lead the other raids if the interest and demand is out there to run a 2nd or even 3rd raid?
