I've been playing WoW for a while and have been in several guilds going back to just before TBC, and am now a guild leader of a casual 10/25-man raiding guild. I've been in everything from serious raiding to casual dungeon guilds, but never in one that used class leaders (officers). My opinion of the rank is that it's a relic from the 40-man raiding days, when there were only 8 classes instead of 10 and you needed your highest geared / most capable players to corral the rest of their kind to coordinate buffs and prepare for raids, and so on. The only guilds I ever saw try to implement it were small and led by self-important scrubs who were trying to make the ranks like they thought it should be, without actually giving the class leaders any responsibility or people to lead. I honestly don't think it's something we'd ever need to implement. I suppose in larger guilds raiding 25-man heroic content on the regular might still utilize this rank, but either I haven't seen it happening or my own perspective is too narrow. Do guilds still use class leaders, or am I right in thinking it's an artifact of days long gone?
