"The new UI will include a threatmeter" Great something I did not want. I will just disable this and play on.

Why wouldn't you use a threat meter? It is inconsiderate and rude.

I don't want to watch a bar, I want to play the game. It's rude to tell someone how to play.

I won't group with someone who doesn't have a threat meter. But then, if you don't care about aggro you probably don't group a lot.

Ignore him. He was whining constantly in the Omen newspost as well. Copy and pasting replies from there the instant the words 'threat meter' come up in a new post? Troll more?

Here's the thing Naix, if you want to just play the game, then stay out of groups and stick to the solo content. When you group with other people and don't pitch in to help, then you are inconsiderate and self-centered. We don't want you.The thing about threat meters is that there are only a few reasons you might not need one:1. You don't care that you pull agro all the time (in which case I don't want to group with you).2. You are a terrible player and you never produce enough damage to be in danger of pulling agro (in which case I don't want to group with you).3. You are a healer running with a paladin tank in 5 mans and are never in danger of pulling healing agro (this one might fly with me, but what's the harm in having a meter just to be considerate to the tank?)4. Your PC does not have the performance to handle running add-ons (This reason is passable to me)5. You are a tank and you don't care that people pull agro because they don't know how much threat you are pushing out (In which case I don't want to run with you).6. You are a 1 in a million sort of player that can watch the combat log and figure threat on the fly (impressive, but realize that by not running a threat meter, you are denying the other players information about your threat. I'm hoping that with the latest changes to the combat log, this wont be an issue).

Just wanting to play the game means I will do 5 mans, raids, and every piece of content I can. Excluding myself from those would mean I am not playing the game. I pitch in plenty to help. In fact my damage is usually tops the damage meters without a threat meter. *ShrugHere is how you too can do it.1. Steady damage. Stop mashing those buttons so fast and let the tank gain agro.2. When the mob/boss is about 15-10% health go all out damage.3. Now roll on your loot.Ta DA! Manatank your number 3 concusses me. I have never seen a good paladin tank.
