I see it from 2 standpoints as I have been in 2 end game raiding guilds. The one I'm currently in practices drum stinging and the other did not.The guild that did not practice drum stringing was a competitve raid guild that cleared all of T5 and 4/5 Hyjal and the 1st two bosses of BT. The only reason that guild stopped raiding was because of summer vacations and the natural decline of raid participation every guild sees in the summer. Never knew we were missing anything.The guild that I'm in now uses this method but primarily in the tank group (I'm a tank). We have cleared all of T6 and just downed Brutallus. And we use drums of battle to give more haste for tanks to build aggro faster and more consistantly so dps can go harder. As far as I know, nobody was forced into leatherworking to do this and the people who do it are more than happy to do it. The tank group usually consists of me (Prot warrior), another prot warrior or feral tank, 2 BM hunters (the drummers), and a resto druid. Again the reason for the BM hunters is for ferocious inspirations stacking effect to add to the tanks threat. I don't know of any mages/priests/warriors, etc. that are LW's just to use drums. I myself am a herb/alch and nobody's ever given me grief about my proffesion choices."AKA, instead of just brute forcing your way through instances, you'll have to get better. Got it."Seems like a pretty ignorant thing to say. I guess somewhere along the way into SWP we never lrnd2p.

thats all well and good, but as far as i know all the big name guilds, such as nihilum had 80% of their raids at 350 LW so they could chain drums giving a raid wide +80 haste buff. Pretty clever; i think use of mechanics like this should be allowed tbh

It is allowed, no one was banned for doing it.
