I am continually astonished at how uninterested and hostile people get when a suggestion is made to them. I routinely see a 5k dps trying to give some advice to a 1.5k dps and have it totally rejected, have them get mad, etc. Even basic things like "you should look into a quicker dagger" or "if you added another arcane blast to your rotation it would..." or even "you are way over your hit cap, you might try getting some spell power gems instead" - 9 times out of 10 results in hostility, sarcasm and anger.its surprising.. I mean if a 1k dps tried to give advice that is one thing, but when the dps leader is saying something, why don't people listen?

It's not that hard to understand if you look at it from the perspective of the person you're "only trying to help":Me: "Hey, this is fun, I might not be doing top DPS but at least I'm contributing and enjoying myself."Other player: "Stop, you're having fun WRONG."It also doesn't help that, frankly, people think they're allowed to be as obnoxious as possible in the name of "helping out": "lol, why the f$%^ are u running w/ such a jacked up spec?" "omg that dagger sux, go get a new one"
