I'd like to clarify that I'm not saying "all pure DPS players are selfish" nor am I saying "pure classes are inferior" or anything of the sort. Skilled DPS are just as necessary as skilled tanks or healers, being good at it requires skill and attention, and players who enjoy and are good at it are contributing as much as any others.Rejecting the idea of your pure class gaining the ability to fill an additional role, because then you might be asked to fill that other role, sounds selfish to me.Even if you don't want to fill that role, a higher population of characters potentially filling the under-represented roles benefits everyone.My perspective is mostly from raiding. On my ideal raid team, everyone does the most that they can to contribute to the success of the group. Individual players refusing to step into a different role because they don't enjoy it as much, while expecting others in the group to do exactly that, have gotten under my skin. I meant no offense to the pure DPS population at large, and I apologize if I offended.
