How to keep your "DPS" happy:(Editor's note: "DPS" is not the same as DPS. DPS actually do damage. Also, sarcasm intended.)1. Be prepared to carry them.This is the big one. Most groups consist of 0-2 DPS, and 1-3 "DPS", and the "DPS" want to be carried. If you can't carry 3 "DPS", then you need better gear. You should get full raid gear, and a healer with the same before queuing for 5man dungeons. No one wants to wipe.2. Don't berate them for low DPS."DPS" don't want to hear about how they're doing low DPS; that's what the DPS are for. Telling a "DPS" to do more damage is like telling a healer to tank the mobs better.3. If the group dissolves, vote kick them before you leave."DPS" frequently have to deal with a group falling apart, and their queues are really long! Don't make them suffer a 15 minute wait before they can even queue up again; they need to queue a lot of times so they maximize their chances of being carried.4. Give the "DPS" a battle rez.If they're not AFK, then the "DPS" wants to be entertained. And being dead isn't entertaining. That's why it's your job to heal them through everything so they can keep auto-attack turned on while facing the wrong way. And when you can't, it's your responsibility to battle rez them. Especially if you're a class that doesn't have one. Why aren't you an engineer? The "DPS" is! Of course they don't know that jumper cables only work outside of combat. (And fail more often than their owner.)5. GogogogogogogogoGogogogogo. Gogogogogogo go gogo gogogogogo. Gogogo gogo gogogogogogogogo. Gogogogogogo! Go. Go. Go. Gogogogogogo go go go-gogo. Goooooooo! Ffs, gogogo! Gogogogogogogogogogo, gogo, gogogo go gogogogogogo.
