Andrew gets it.Comrade, I get what you are saying. You are talking optimum, as raiders tend to, so, go you.Optimal and viable are two different things, and their interchanging in WoW parlance is the disease plaguing player inclusion and enjoyment. Pure DPS classes (and classes with more than one DPS option) choose a flavour of damage, by personal preference. They are all viable. No misuse of words will change that, it is the promise that THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WRITE THE ENCOUNTERS are responsible for upholding, and they have.The interchanging of these terms is not your fault, but you are perpetuating a disease in WoW that is easily maintained by raiders that could have one less bead of sweat on their brow because someone on EJ said "fire, and let it be known", when that bead of sweat is potentially bought by someone having less fun in the fight, in the game they want to enjoy. Everyone being viable means no one is overworked, one spec being optimal is a treat, not a social expectation. At least not in healthy social environments. Quote the raider's doctrine of "don't waste other people's time" all you want, everyone is viable, and in the equation of "your comfort>their fun", you are being selfish. That isn't just aimed at you, that is aimed at everyone that doesn't play with friends, real friends, that will sweat that extra bead for each other.omedon666.livejournal.com
