Mar 6th 2010 4:28PM Well I'm sorry Mr. Belt, but I simply won't take you in my raid, if you come as frost.
The gap isn't small at all, based on my little survey (comparing the top 10 of both specs on Festergut in worldoflogs) a very good frost mage does 60% of the damage of their arcane brethren.
I wouldn't take you because it would be unfair to the rest of the raid, who are trying to do their best, and you refuse to shuffle a few points around for doing your job much better. It's not like you have to regear, regem or even radically change playing style.
You are perfectly entitled to have fun with any pet spec you might devise, that's what dual specs are for. Just don't expect an invite.
Sep 28th 2009 2:57PM I once wondered into the tomb of Uther unknowing, and was really stunned by its deep lore. I mean at that moment wow really felt like a World, that has its long forgotten and abandoned monuments to fallen heroes. I haven't had that moment of truth since my first few levels when i thought wow was plain endless. But at that time it all came alive for me.
I hope that others witness this feeling with that quest.

It really works, and sets up a little friendly competition between the teams witch is good for everyone.
Jun 30th 2009 6:24AM I really don't know who you people think are the casuals. For a casual it will take about half a year to get the gear that you can buy from honor for pvp. One bg~20minutes~800 honor, a casual will have about 3 hours of playtime a week. I really dont see that as welfare.
For the raids you have to grind high normals than heroics, until you can even think about raiding and that's just for Naxx. By the time a casual gets to Ulduar 2-3 patches come along. So "hardcores", please stop whining about changes that make our lives a little easier, you will always have better gear and achievements than us.
A casual player is not necessarily less skilled than you, just less available.
