- "What I'M tired of is everyone blaming dickish action on DPS meters and being concerned about DPS, etc. Just because someone has a meter or cares about min/maxing doesn't mean they horrible people who will /spit and insult you over gear and all that you mentioned. I care about my dps. I will switch out a gem or get a new piece of gear that's the same ilevel as my old one but has slightly better stats just to bump up my dps a few points. But am I rude and horrible to people who don't have the same level of gear I do? No. The people who do that are just dicks, plain and simple, and complaining about DPS-related issues is just how it comes out for them. It's wonderful that you don't want to do those things you listed (switch trinkets, change strategies, etc.), but if someone does that's perfectly fine too. Someone who cares about min/maxing can be a dick, but caring about min/maxing doesn't MAKE them a dick."Don't get uppity. I'm a min-maxer by nature as well. I love theorycrafting, I love tweaking my talent points, spending time on the test dummy and optimizing my gear. I'm one of the top DPS in my hard-mode guild and am always trying to find ways to push my own limists. It's all just part of the metagame for me. I wasn't just referring to people who like to take their game to the next level. I was referring to the people who are more concerned with YOUR performance than their own. The people who equate your ilvl to your worth as a human. The people who are convinced that "u have a int/crit gem in ur boots lololol u r fail!!11!". I never said I'm unwilling to switch trinkets or try different strategies. I said that 95% of the time, the difference between one piece of gear or another is mild at best and unnoticable at worst. I said that for 95% of players, the difference between one racial or another is overshadowed tenfold by mistakes and bad habits. I'm saying that I'm not going to make BS excuses about my performamce and say that I need to be decked out in 359 epics to down normal mode Magmaw, as most trade chat pugs would believe. Freaking out over a couple missed points of Int or a choice of a Crit gem in place of a strength gem isn't going to decide whether or not a boss goes down.
