Who is anyone but blizzard to decide that caster shamans shouldn't be allowed to use offhands? I've raided with MH/OH, MH/SH, and staves. Should the lightning rod ever drop, I WILL roll on it and I would certainly use it if I won. Its currently BIS and in any of these raid encounters you rarely ever take physical damage to benefit from a shield. Should there be some mechanic that DOES do physical damage, heal it like you do for every other caster class.
In all honesty, LFR is most likely going to be the cause for my husband and I and quite a few others in my alliance guild to quit playing the game.
Are you serious? Post seems seriously serious.
Currently LFR is my only means to raiding. I think its one of the best things introduced to warcraft. Sure, it has its problems. I personally think its way to easy and the first four bosses have become a mindless chore where you don't even have to try. I get pissed when people win 3-4 items in one LFR and you win nothing. I frown when one person win 2-3 items off Madness, like they today.
But its hardly enough to make me 'quit the game'. I don't know why you care if bad players get 384 gear. Its 13 item levels lower than your 10 man raid. I'd killl for 397's at this point. I feel second rate and I can't compete with skilled players who have 4-5 items out of 10 man. I will always come in shy.
Your taking for granted what you've got.
Your caring too much about the noobs in LFR
You won't care about losing rolls in LFR once you have the 10 man versions.
Items those people will never get, and people like me wish I had.
You won't even need to go to LFR.
Pugging 'bad' players off your server is nothing new, and has little to do with LFR. This curse of warcraft has been around for many years prior.
