A Guildmaster’s Guide to Dealing with Raider Burnout

Whether we’ve seen it in friends or experienced it ourselves, we have all witnessed gaming burnout. Of course, it is a natural part of the raiding life cycle – but when the conditions are right, it can spread faster through a guild than wildfire through a forest. It can feel like one of the […]
