May 16th 2010 10:02AM Boobah, I'm not talking about boosting here. :) My point is that some people seem to expect that people who come to THEIR random HC runs have already raid gear and that they make at least 4K DPS constantly. We all know that WotLK HC's can be done even with blue +175 gear (as long as tank is uncrittable) it just takes more coordination and skill. If someone has better gear, it sure makes things faster. If everyone in the group does their best, I can't see how would anyone be seen as "carried". If some people are overgeared for current instance, it's not bad thing unless one sees the HC's as a DPS competition.
I am talking about what kind of gear WotLK HC's really require, not how good gear raiders have today. I am talking about how easily some people start to ridicule anyone in their random group who's still gearing up without raider GS/DPS even the run would be smooth.
I don't consider boosting or being boosted anything like fun either.
If someone just watches like a bystander as other people do all the work, I would think that (s)he's being "carried". Also of course there are people who do not have a clue about their class, itemization, encounters etc. They obviously need help and you either want to help them or not—you either have time or you don't. If you decide to help someone but your help is not appreciated or understood, you can take it always to somewhere else. :)
May 15th 2010 2:24PM > I disagree with "Nobody likes to hop into a random heroic and discover that he's in there with a mage who's wheezing out 800 DPS. Don't be that guy."
I disagree as well, no matter if I play my tank, healer or DPS, I'm always delighted to help just-dinged lvl 80's at heroics. After all, all I need there is emblems and the nice gear that drops would end up to vendor/disenchanted in most cases.
If I ever have been unlucky enough to find random HC group where no one else is not geared well enough, then I just have admitted to group that the instance is not doable and it's better disband and everyone to re-queue. Maybe happened once or twice.
Quite contrary, when high geared people start to whine about GS of lower geared people and that the group is so bad that boss fights might take 40 seconds instead of 30 seconds, I'm ready to bail out. Seriously. Those people I don't want to help with their emblems. To nice people with manners, I'm always helpful, and I choose to play with other helpful people.
