I have had a number of negative experiences with people like this. And that's only since I came back to WoW on April 30th after taking a break since the first week of November.In fact, just 3 days ago I was rejected for a Zul'Aman run because I'm wearing some blues. Nevermind the pieces of gear and weapons I've accumulated since I came back. Someone I had friended and had been inviting me to Karazhan on my weeks I didn't go with the guild finally looked at my Armory and decided my numbers were too low for Zul'Aman.I was told my RAP was too low, my DPS was too low, and the fact that I wore blues excluded me from this run. Note that my 3 blues are the Claok of the Coming Night, Lightwarden's Band, and Abacus of Violent Odds. I'd rather spend my badges on bigger upgrades at first and get the smaller ones as time goes on. So I kept an eye on the group as it was forming because players have made me a bit spiteful as of late. I saw which hunter they picked up (because they were still in LFG at the time) and looked her up on Warcrafter.net --- A good place to compare yourself to others.She passed their inspection process because she was wearing all epics. However, upon checking her warcrafter page, I saw that my numbers were quite a bit higher than hers were. Now here's the kicker. She saw me sitting in Shattrath the following day and asked me for gear advice. I had never spoken to her before she approached me about this. Go figure. People would prefer someone in all epics than someone who knows what they're doing, it seems. I don't understand this thought process.I don't hold this situation against her, but I took note of the people in the raid and they will forever be people I won't bother with. Even the one who was a WoW friend was removed for this. I can't stand gear nazis. It's one thing to expect a certain level of gear, as well as skill when building a party for any given instance, but to solely base it on someone wearing things with only purple outlines seems ignorant.
