I love how everyone just assumes that progression raiders are mindless robots that only care about raw DPS and nothing else.A) Hybrids only sit back and do nothing but DPS AFTER the fight is on farm. During the learning process, they are off-healing, cleansing, CCing, off-tanking, basically doing the things that make them hybrids. Progression raid leaders LOVE hybrids because they are the ones that can turn a wipe around with a well-timed Battle rez.B) Raiders are human too. We don't go recruiting the highest DPS warrior on the server if he's a rude, arrogant, moron. We bring our friends too. It jsut so happens that most of our friends are good players too. That's kinda what drew us together and made us friends in the first place.C) The number of progression fights that are tuned so tightly that a 5% raid DPS increase is the difference between success and failure is really minimal. Most raid fights are about execution, not DPS. Brutallus and patchwerk jump to mind, and that's really all I can think of off the top of my head.
