Wipe
A wipe is defined as the entire raid dying to a monster or boss. Before resurrecting, make sure the fight is entirely over and all monsters have returned to their spots. Otherwise, when players resurrect they could re-aggro the monsters.

Wipes can be very demoralizing to a group that has been progressing well. Players must endure repair costs and lost time, momentum, and enthusiasm for the task at hand. Players can become very agitated and start placing blame if they feel justified in their anger. It's important that the raid leader(s) take control of the situation and get everyone back into focus, if needed. Players must take the time to be resurrected or run back to the dungeon from the graveyard and gather at a staging point. They then need to spend time recovering their health and mana as well as begin recasting all of their buffs so they can try again. A well-trained guild can learn to shrug off these setbacks, overcome them, and rebound fairly quickly.

Wipe Recovery
There are many classes that are capable of escaping death or allowing another player to escape death in the event of a wipe. Paladins can use Divine Intervention (DI) on another player (preferably one that can resurrect) which effectively kills the paladin but removes the target from combat for 3 minutes. Warlocks can use a soulstone on another player, which will allow that player to resurrect himself or herself. Shaman can use reincarnation to self-resurrect, and then resurrect others.
