you shold definitely give your afflock another chance.i found that we scale really well with better gear. when starting in naxx, the whole raid dressed in bc epics and quest gear, i was doing barely 2k dps, with other classes (notably hunters, warriors) already at 3k...
now a few weeks into raiding, with everybody in shiny new epics, i top the meters in most bossfights, and can dish out well over 4k on patchwerk. our demon/destro locks are doing equally well.
so yes, locks can still dps. it just seems we depend a lot on good gear.
Aug 11th 2008 12:52PM when you think about it, a group not tolerating the stubborness of this holypriest, does not necessarily have anything to do with them not liking RPers that are that dedicated.
maybe they are dedicated RPers as well, and decided IC that for something as challenging as raiding ZA, they only want to take characters who have no problem with tapping into every source of power available to them.
I mean even when strictly IC some chars might have a problem with a comrade (mind you, not the player of this comrade) that would not try everything to save his group from the gruesome trolls.
so IMO this hasnt necessarily to do with devoted RP vs. no so devoted RP.
Apr 9th 2008 8:46AM do some more netherwing quests until you reach the next level of reputation. then you unlock 2 or 3 quests in the nethermines which won't take too long. one of them gives 18 gold as a reward.
also if you farm for your crystals while doing the nethermines quests you will have 30 of them in no time.
