Matt, I never suggested anything about who sucks and who does not. I respect your knowledge of the game and your ability to write, all I am asking for is that you respect your readers as well. Don't think we're all clueless noobs who don't know how drums work. I made a post in the spirit of constructive criticism in the hopes that (as I said) journalistic integrity may be raised on this very website.Just because your guild uses drums a certain way does not make it the reason why all the clothies are dropping their other professions to level leatherworking. No, the reason they are all getting leatherworking is so they can maintain a Drums of Battle 100% uptime rotation in their DPS group. Be it the melee group, the mage group, or the hunter group - that's why everyone wants drums. That's why Blizzard decided to nerf it.Sure, you can pop multiple different drums in your raid when you want. My guild does this sometimes as well in groups that aren't about DPS, such as the healer group or the group with the main tank and some extra healers. However, usage in this manner is not why drums are considered overpowered and certainly not why Blizzard is introducing the Tinnitus debuff discussed by this article.
