Yes there is.
There will always be a spec that does more DPS than other specs. This is the best spec. Period.
If one spec is 0.5% less DPS than another, then it is not the best spec, no matter how close it happens to be.
Sep 4th 2010 11:07AM Do I care?
Aug 9th 2010 10:23AM About the only thing that gets respect from me is the Amani War Bear.
Aug 7th 2010 8:05PM See, I don't particularly care.
Blizzard forces us to run heroics -- the domain of the noobs -- to get frost badges. So, you are putting people who DO NOT WANT TO BE THERE in there. We don't want to interfere with your healer training, we really don't. But every day, I will spend 10 minutes getting 1/10th of a saronite and 30 gold. I don't really care if your feelings get hurt because I go too fast for you. I do not play the game to care about you or your feelings. I play the game to progress as best I can. You are a pawn to me, just as I, funnily enough, am a pawn all the same to you.
Aug 7th 2010 1:19PM No, I want to "stress them out" to get my two frost badges and get out.
Don't hate me for using the system Blizzard set up for me to use. It's their fault they make me go where the newbs should be.
Aug 7th 2010 11:19AM It sounds like this article is written by entitled HEALERS who are jealous of the fact that tanks can do what they cannot. Also, bad healers.
You want a way to convey your lack of healing skill? "I'm new at healing, go slow please." I speedpug everything, but if someone legitimately asks me to go slow, then I will. Now, it may not be as slow as they like, but the sign of a good tank is to pull enough that the healer is JUST at their limit, but not beyond it. Many people do not think they can do what they otherwise can do, if the situation calls for it.
And as for the tanks who pull everything and quit, don't do that. =\ If you really need a way to get out of a group, get naked and /sleep. Most groups get the hint and will votekick you, which does not start the deserter timer. And if they pull and the group wipes, you often get a free /script LeaveParty() too.
Aug 3rd 2010 1:03PM "Tanking is not all ... defense rating"
Yes it is. If you are under the defense cap, you are a LIABILITY to the group.
"Tanks need not only to be ready to step up and take charge of the group by assigning duties. . ."
Yes, and your duty is to maintain aggro, which you are incapable of doing, apparently.
If you are bad at tanking, you have two options:
B. Keep at it and get better.
The only real way to do B is to keep queueing and ignore dissenters. But it seems to me like you want four other people to be okay with you being bad. You can't expect them to be. I don't play this game to teach tanking kindergarten; I play my daily heroic for my two frost badges and to get out. So do most.
Apr 26th 2010 5:03AM Also, "Depending on the case, the victim might receive the amount of money necessary to put him in the position in which he would have been had the contract been followed. (Example: same scenario, except not only do I have to pay you back the $20, I have to pay $20 to get someone else to mow the yard.)"
This is not correct. The victim may be given expectancy, which is what I think you are trying to portray, but they would not have to pay $40. The breaching party is going to be put in the position he would be in as well, which is giving the $20 back. The only instance the nonmower would have to pay more is if the lawn owner indicated his need for a speedy mow, and due to the breach, had to mitigate by hiring a much more expensive mower to do the task that the breaching party would have otherwise done. If the lawn owner did not indicate this, then we get into Hadley v Baxendale territory.
Apr 26th 2010 4:57AM For what it's worth, Raich v Gonzales did not say that growing your own marijuana was interstate commerce. It said that the law against marijuana was valid under the Commerce Clause because of the effects on interstate commerce that rampant marijuana usage has.
Wickard is probably a better case to illustrate the point that self-grown material can affect interstate commerce.
