Feb 5th 2008 10:05AM I should add that my opinion is directed mostly to DPS classes (like me), who have to watch their threat most closely. I find it difficult to imagine a healer who's going to hold off on heals when the tank's about to go splat, and tanks always have to aim for the maximum threat regardless.
Anyway Naix, as admirable as it might be that you're able to do this (and I certainly think it is), I'd like to see more than one class step forward and declare their raidmod-independence before my opinion is swayed. I agree that it's certainly possible, but it's far more improbable than not and one exception doesn't count for much.
Feb 5th 2008 7:29AM I can't help but feel that raiding is certainly possible without mods, if you know the instance like the back of your hand and have been working with your tank for a long, long time.
I only installed Omen when I turned level 70, before which I could always count on the fact that a higher-level tank would keep up with my lower-level DPS. When you're working with unfamiliar people at level 70, though, that dependable level comparison is out the window. Without that, you often don't know the tank's threat abilities, which often depend just as much on skill as gear, both of which are very variable.
Active threat dump abilities or no, it's possible for one stupid mistake to wipe up an entire 25-man raid group. I'm a minimalist at heart and only use one raid mod, but to those who raid without a threat meter: do you really want to pay everyone's repair bills because you're too stubborn to do it the easy way? If so, you might as well get off the computer and write your reply by hand.
Nov 29th 2007 8:59AM I'd like to posit that as far as defense in WSG goes, the best way to defend the flag is to stand in the middle of the field - not only are you in position to assist the offense, you're also in a good position to see and intercept those who're trying to make it back across with the flag.
I personally believe that guarding the FR in WSG is really just asking to lose in many cases (unless you're a hunter with those awesome frost traps). Not only are you wasting your time not assisting your offense, it's hard to know what's going on outside and it's easy to get ambushed from above while you're sitting there twiddling your thumbs (I've done it many a time meself). Food for thought, hopefully.
And of course, the above only applies to WSG. >.>
