At the level cap, most WoW players fall into one of three categories: casual gamers who aren’t concerned about the end game, raiders who have a dedicated team to run with, and aspiring raiders who want to raid but struggle to get into a group.

If you’re looking to raid WoW’s endgame content, chances are you’re going to be looking for a raiding guild. While it’s possible to raid without a guild, it’s a lot trickier.
