Eh, that statement is contradictory at best though.Those "Vanilla Elitist Dbags" are used to having to deal with just a few pieces of gear dropping from a 40man boss. That made the gear more epic because if you won it, you WON it, which is where the DKP system came to play. DKP was used to show someone's dedication to the guild and raids, because you needed those 39 others.Now that we have 10/25mans, that gear seems much easier to get, because there is less competition, which is why DKP is no longer favored. With the drastically lowered number requirement, it simply doesn't provide the kind of incentive it used to.Shift in gameplay led to a divide in two different schools of raiding. I wouldn't call the general group of them Dbags though, because part of the experience in 40man raiding WAS winning that epic that dropped, and when people saw you with it, it was part awesome gear, and part status symbol.Now all those epics are just fluff to fill up your gearscore, which as we all know, is the best way to gauge player skill. So I can understand where they are coming from.
