Yea, just gloss over the fact that I was talking about your going for hit rating. I'm saying hit rating is garbage, you can claim it's just for ultraxion, but it's the same thing you were going for when you were 1/8.
Yes i went for hit back then (actually i was reforging for exp not hit) BECAUSE WE WERE WIPING TO ENRAGES NOT ME GETTING GIBBED.
But no its not garbage. Its our 2nd best dps stat following expertise.
Or do you think that the answer to a dps problem is to stack stamina? Then all your valuable experience means nothing cause you dont know basic class mechanics.
All 4? In one night?
Yes. We spend one night clear them and the 2nd day on progression.
That was enough for our 10m leader to sit her, and bring in another guildie.
Thus our guilds are nothing alike. Our guild would keep trying as long as she was geared enough and put in the effort.
You can choose to go into a raid with 9 healers and 1 tank, and you can gear for all the dps you want, and you will not succeed.
Absurd example is absurd.
But when you don't even get to PULL the boss on a raid fight, then try to speculate what would work - I don't want to hear it.
What the sam hill are you talking about. I know its late but now your speaking non-sense.
I'm saying that no experience means you can't speak on your experience.
I have experience tanking for 2 expansions. Not HM DS but enough to know basic tanking and im very well antiquated with all the theorycrafting.
And this goes back to you looking down at normal mode tanks.
"You can't believe John when he says the proposed policy would help the economy. He doesn't even have a job."
Replace economy with raids and job with completed NM DS.
A straw man is a component of an argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position
Hes not misrepresenting my argument this time (or he wasnt till the last post) rather trying to attack my credibility while ignoring my argument.
try to discredit me by citing my raid experience
Hes calling you out on hypocrisy actually.
The bottom line is results. We start working Blackhorn next week - I've been talking to people that have down it before, specifically tanks so I can learn from that perspective. Guess who I'm not asking? People that have only read about it, and never even started the event in normal mode for themselves.
I have never been to the northpole.
So if i told you that its freaking cold up their you would ignore me and go up in a Tshirt and shorts? Maybe nothing but a speedo for a week?
Here are my results: I have the unwavering faith of all who raid with me. We have cleared things using my strategies we have struggled on. We have killed bosses that had i listened to you we would still be struggling on.
This game is a TEAM effort. You can not access individual skill/knowledge or ability by progression. Have you seen me tank? Have you tanked for my raid?
We have had people come in who are doing HMs and wipe with us in some pugs. You would throw your hands up in frustration and quit. I struggle on. You give up on people. So long as they try i dont. You take the easy way out, i do things the way the vast majority of players do them...wipe with friends.
Your tactics would not work for most people looking for help as they would not kick the mage doing 5k more damage than you cause its their best friend. My ways will help them pull victory from the jaws of defeat. Yours leaves them looking and feeling like jerks.
To turn things around on you, who are you to give advise to people when you dont even live in their world? Your not playing the same game we are, we actually care about people. Your ways wont work for them cause they will never do things your way. In fact stacking stamina when you have a dps problem will hurt them.
The fact that you think all raids are like yours undermines everything you say. Lets take my advise from the previous flame war we were in:
If survival is not an issue and damage is then exp/hit is the way to go.
Tell me one situation where this is wrong. Just one.
Okay lets take my advise in this thread: Tanking gearing is situational. Consider the needs of your raid and talk to your healers and decide whats best for you.
Once again 1 situation where im wrong.
