ur doeing it rong, lol!


Urrgghh....just seeing that on the screen makes you cringe, doesn't it? That means that someone is about to drop a pearl of wisdom on you, swiftly summarizing your playstyle as bad, because it's not done according to what they're used to.

I just finished doing heroic TOC for the 54th time, just gathering my daily 3 Champion Seals for the last mount I need from the Argent Tournament. The first tank dropped out after the first wipe, we kicked the healer after the second wipe since he wasn't really doing a great job of healing, and after the 3rd wipe and subsequent victory over Lady Paletress, the new tank commented that the dps was terrible. Then, he started blaming me! He said, "Oh, Beastmaster. You should go Survival, you'd do 4k dps easily. And your weapons are wrong too, even Marrowstrike (which had just dropped) would be better."
I currently have Blood Weeper and Nighttime equipped, with 65 AP on both of them. Here's my armory link.

But, excuse me? I was tops dps of the group! My pet gorilla was doing about the same dps as the rogue. Just because I had 5k GS, that means that I should carry the whole group? It seems that PUG's tend to rely on the fact that people with higher equipment are still forced to run heroics to get emblems or seals, so they feel comfortable showing up in sub-par gear, confident that they'll still get carried thru the instance.

As Beastmaster, with my pets damage added to mine (Diznizzia is my pet), I was doing about 3300 dps. Plus, I was using Misdirect as much as possible so that the tank could do their job without worrying about someone like me pulling aggro. The rogue was at 3300 GS, the DK was probably 4400. And yet I'm supposed to "know my roll?"

I might change my second spec from Marksman (since I've never used it) to Survival, but that's just because I want to try it out. I brought sufficient firepower to the instance to justify my being in it. The others should do the same.

  1. Good points! Too many people out there seem to think because they do things one way if someone else isn't doing it that way they're wrong. Sometimes people just want to do their own thing. As long as you are having fun and contributing screw the "helpful" people
