    Need advice didn't know where else to turn

    Hello everyone,
    So I am a guild leader of a Guild named Ambrosia we've always been a small guild but enough to do/attempt 10m content. The guild is comprised of mostly my family. The issue I'm running into is the other core players we had left the game for whatever reason prior to cataclysm. Now we do not even have enough players to complete a dungeon (1 shy). When the members left I filled in the role of the tank since it is a difficult role to find in general. I am noticing that a lot of my family doesn't respond well to me giving orders. I say switch targets and get blamed for moving targets to much. I am really at a loss for what to do. Even when I do recruit a member on the very off chance of it. They usually end up leaving the guild not long after because of the lack of experience of my guildies. I forgot to mention my family is all pretty new at the game. I feel stuck now and I really have no ideas... any suggestions I'm up for! Thanks in advanced for reading this.

    it may seem harsh but you need to tell your family to suck it up.

    in heroics the tank really has to set the pace ( barring healer mana).

    Tanks are almost always the ones marking kill orders, cc targets etc, this is because only the tank knows 100% what way THEY can pull best and keep the most control.

    Sad part is the healer is my partner who is good and experienced. So we have that relationship instinct on our side. I have yet to die to anything when we play together lol.


    Just wanted to add... Good point I may have to do this or have my partner since its his father and brother.

    My personal take on the matter, just replace "guild" with family

    If they complain about your tanking, reefer them to:

    In short, is there in your family somebody willing to take on the Leader/tank role ? If yes, let them bang their head against the wall. If not, they must forever hold their peace. Harsh, but necessary.

    Wow great info... I am going to pass the last one to my family members because it gives really great insight to all roles. I know the only time most people complain about stuff is when they've never really done the other role. So this will help them understand what they should do and what others are doing! Awesome resource... wish I would have located that link myself
