They know the strats inside and out. They perform their raid role exceptionally well while leading others through assignments and call outs.
The Raid Leader
My guild went through three exceptional raid leaders in the Wrath of the Lich King. Of the three, two play extremely casually and one has left the realms of Azeroth permanently.
The led us through the wings of Naxxramas, in the mountains of Ulduar, against the Champions and Enemies of the Argent Tournament, and finally in the slaying of the Lich King and his lieutenants.
The Warlock – He led us through all of Naxx and Normal mode Ulduar up to Yogg-Saron. He ended up needing to stay quieter during raids and passed off to…
The Warrior – He led us through all of Ulduar’s Hard Modes. Firefighter, Algalon and Trial of the Grand Crusader as well as the launch of Icecrown Citadel.
The Pally – An amazing main tank through the entire expansion. He held us together when our leadership went casual. An amazing chance to fulfill a real life dream dragged him off.
Two main tanks and a mad dps’er. They’ve since been replaced by a Hunter who I know will do an amazing job.
Sadly, this is also the end of my hardcore, raiding journey in the 25 man format, but it was a hell of a ride.
In Cataclysm, I have plans to join up with some friends on a casual 10 man basis and play it for fun like the game it is.
To our great leaders and to an awesomely successful expansion. Best of luck, guys!
