Drama Mamas: Dungeon Finder advice {WoW}

Dec 19th 2009 10:08AM I'm not convinced by any of these commenters saying it's about respect. If the given group can get through the given instance, that's all I need to know. If it really can't, then re-group, but that's a different question.

This new random tool just brings out even more the attitude that all these other players in the game are there for *my* convenience. These are not NPCs put in by the game to fill slots, for goodness's sake. *That's* lack of respect right there.

I'm with the Drama Mamas. If you choose to offer advice, try listening, and make sure you know what you're talking about first - and be gentle, because you need to earn the right to offer constructive criticism and prove that you're not one of the zillions of rude idiots that player has already encountered. If you can't be bothered, but the group is managing the encounters, roll with it. How does it hurt your leetness to carry someone who's so obviously not in your league?

And on a slightly different note, if you were in my guild and followed that advice that you can badmouth the low-dps guy in /g with impunity for your amusement, any respect I had for you would quickly be lost.

Unconventional Group Makeup {WoW}

Nov 10th 2007 8:33AM I've spent a lot of my levelling in unconventional groups just because I want to group with my friends. It helps I can heal (though I was enhancement for levelling). It's more challenging and more fun and frankly my friends are great players who can handle a crazy run by, like, playing their classes to the full. Yes, it's a controversial tactic but it seems to work ;)

Breakfast topic: I wish I knew then what I know now {WoW}

Nov 6th 2007 12:28PM @54 - "Don't roll shadow/ret/feral if you want to heal in endgame. Suck it up; level holy. There are enough suckass healers out there that no one needs their slave pens run to also be the first time you've ever healed. There are exceptions, but don't assume you're one of them."

Or spec enhancement 1-70 and *heal anyway* when required (OK, up to HFR) - if you can heal offspec while levelling you can heal end-game as resto nps. If you can't heal/don't like healing, then at least you know by 70 and you don't cause yourself and others misery till you work out that in fact you like dps/tanking/rolling a new main that can do what you like better.

-Roll a shaman, find a guild that doesn't mind when you're off-spec, and re-spec occasionally to enjoy the best of both worlds. Oh, I did ;)

No regrets.

Breaking News: Casual players hard to define {WoW}

Oct 15th 2007 11:12PM I was trying to work out how people could be taking this article as 'yet another' slight against casual players. Then it occurred to me - some people actually think it is a bad thing to be described as someone who will say 'F*** you' rather than 'How high?'. Weird...
