I'm not sure about that DPS bit. If you link that you will just get laughed at for acting like a noob, even by players who just want to get an inkling of how you'll perform. Yes, some people are just trying to be elitist choads and slap your with their massive e-peen, but others just want to make sure everyone pulls their weight. I'm not saying that DPS is the ultimate measure of a character either, but people should have some idea of where they stand.DPS output is a decent approximation of the level of content you are ready for with your rotation, spec, and gear. You shouldn't be finding out inside the dungeon that your 1000 DPS isn't going to cut it in a raid and you're being carried. Training dummies are to WoW as test tracks are to car racing. My gear is not great, but I take the time to make the best of it by learning rotations/stat weights and speccing in the neighborhood of "properly". That way, I'm actively contributing to the group instead of just leeching off people for "the purps". That's part of the fun for me.
