@NavaroThere is not a word in my exceptionally large vocabulary that adequetly describes how unintelligent appear because of your comment. You're suggesting that CHRISTIAN BELT, the most elite of all mages, actually struggles to put out competitive DPS? True story: when Archmage Pants is in your group, Recount simply ceases to function, as your computer does not have the resources to track his DPS. And, of course, things only go down in a timely fashion because people get carried. Things never went down in a timely fashion before the 6k+ DPS era, mirite? Funny, I was quite pleased with the rate at which things died in heroics the moment my mage, my first 80, dinged and entered heroics. I was along with the rest of the dps, oddly enough, putting out the now abominable (as in snowman, unsure about spelling) 1800 DPS. It's crazy how you might be randomly inserted in heroics nowadays with similar (new 80s) people. It's crazy how every person may not have as much video game experience as I (you?) have, leading to natural understanding and optimization of mechanics and high DPS immediatly after dinging 80. It's crazy how some people may be playing in the spec that seems to be the most fun, rather than the most DPS. Being completly honest, I do cringe when I see less than 1.8k on the meters (because it IS possible to do that much at lvl 80, if you know what you're doing), but I don't care. My 8k DPS shaman does enough for three entry level 80s and then some, so why should I care what they do? At the worst, I'll point it out to my brother IRL, or my mates in G-chat but say nothing to the player, or link meters. At best, I'll inspect their talents, rotation, and gear in order to politely advise them on how to do better via whispers.@loop_not_defined Probably not the same tanks, considering that tanks get bonus threat, and DPS usually gets threat reductions. If a tank is out-DPSing people, then they have aggro (not considering cases of mental retardation among DPS, involving searing pain spam, tossing threat to other DPSers via MD or TotT,which is acceptable only if the recipient is a warlock, ect.)@ The Great ArchmageIn the future, I would humbly advise you to:A) Shatter the warlock's DPS and then taunt HIM about it.B) Kick him right before the final boss, denying him his frosties.C) Roll a mage of the opposite faction on his server, use your powers to instantly ding 80 with a full PVP set and camp him for all of eternity.Although I can certainly understand your unwillingness to stay in a group with such ignorant filth.
