This may be irrelevant, but where the hell is Ailena!
Join The PuG in that case :) We are raiding and we do good.Also, I was prefering the thoughts made live than the cuts :(
Could always get people on your realm to sign up for pug raids like those on Emerald Dream do at http://www.pugplug.comI had never heard of the site until I transferred a character back there to play with a friend. It's pretty useful, especially for gdkps.
On the part of current guilds, the larger ones aren't safe either and will abuse new members during this time to continue progressing until the very end of the expansion. This can essentially destroy your current guild, or just give you a bad rep for joining a guild that treats other guilds poorly. Really, I'd say (not to belittle your opinion, Lore) that the best method in my opinion is to just take some time off, level an alt (if you can stomach doing so with 3.9 so close-ish) or just wait a week or two and tool around with the pre-expansion content.
One of the top guilds in the world, and on my server (Age of Aggression) fell apart the other day.There's something seriously wrong when guilds like that fall apart.
there is NO 3.9 patch, only reason people pulled that number out is because the web page for the echo isles and gnomereagan event has 3.9 as the "patch" listed for it... but those events are now out.... and there has been no patch 3.9. 4.0 will be the precata patch with the changes
