This topic kills me, since I am That Guy. The DPSer doing his best to get his gear up to snuff, but is suffering from a lack of time. My big problem is getting into the guild, wanting to raid and get the gear needed to raid well, but having never geared in my life and find myself in BWD.Oops.Now, obviously, the guild leaders were not happy with my DPS output and I understood that. I said, fine, I'll get it fixed. Got recommendations from friends on what gear to get and what to do. Had a few people in the guild help me out, but it rapidly became clear to me that the guild was more interested in achieves and accomplishments then in helping a low DPSer like me get better. In my personal defense, I do think I am getting better, but I know I am not a DPS stud like what the guild is demanding right now. Will I get there? Sure, but it will take more time and work than either a.) I can put in right now and b.) then they are willing to wait for.Such is life as someone getting into raids. I get it, I do not make excuses for myself and I understand how cutthroat raiding is needed to be, but sometimes I wonder if the hardcore raiding is actually hurting the "fun" in the game. Some of us are just playing it for fun and achieves and smiles, folks, it's not the Battle of Verdun where we must win or democracy dies.
