Hey, you. YOU OUT THERE, PLAYING WARCRAFT. Are you wearing perhaps ONE piece of decent gear? Maybe two? Is the rest of your gear a mish-mash of terrible fucking greens and blues? Yes? Do you think that, since you’ve successfully gamed the i-lvl via PvP epics or a few other things in your inventory…
I definitely do not agree with this.
LOW DPS IS NOT A HORRENDOUS THING.
Some people play this game for pleasure, not to be cunt-punted by players who spends most of their free time creating the perfect toon.
First of all, this post is literally a year old, so I don’t know how you even found it—unless you were specifically looking for something that mentioned poor dps to cry about, which, given your only other post, seems likely—
Holy shit amen
DPS gaming their ilvl to sit there and auto-attack at the beginning of the xpac was one of my biggest rage-inducers. Now if I need valor I just do half the group’s dps as a way-overgeared Disc Priest with 3x Luck of the Draw and give no fucks, but that’s beside the point. Entitled people putting in ZERO EFFORT expecting to get carried =/= actual new/inexperienced players (whom I am always, always willing to help out when they ask, for the record.)
Edit: ALSO for the record, I always take a person’s gear into account before I a) check and see if they know and are doing their rotation correctly and b) maybe (politely, not screamingly) suggest that they do __, __, and __ to improve it. If people are not willing to put in even a modicum of effort to gem/enchant their gear and learn the basics of their rotation, then I don’t think it’s “being elitist” to not want to carry them. Just my $0.02. (And btw, if you are doing all of the above, even if you are a bit undergeared you will not be doing abysmal dps. Believe me. Seriously. I promise.)
