I got a pug last night with hubby’s tank on my hunter… and lo and behold, we had a disc priest healer who felt the need to be a jerk in telling me and the other “low” dps how much we stink. I was pulling right at 1900-2k dps. The hunter is capable of more I know, but I can’t quite seem to make her tick right, even using the proper rotation and such. Someone giving me grief actually hurts my numbers rather than helps.
Well to make the point, I told the priest he needs to keep the tank bubbled.
“Well that interferes with the tank’s threat building.”
Uh. No. Stop being an idiot right now and go back to holy or shadow if that’s what you believe [was thinking that]. If you believe that’s how a disc priest operates – if you’ve done that LITTLE research, just… STOP. Bubbles are the cornerstone of Disc priesting… they are the POINT. Damage mitigation n such? Even my hubby did a facepalm at that.
Lesson: Don’t criticize someone for their dps when you aren’t doing your job because they may just have that toon/class/spec. A lot of people are running these heroics to try and gear up so they may not be pushing 4k. A couple of my toons scrape the bare bottom in the way of dps [I consider 1500 a BARE minimum for heroics] but most of them can pull 2k ish. Hubby says the reason for that is because I’ve focused on my tank and healer to the exclusion of my dps toons. My next project – to get one pulling a solid 3k [probably my kitty, because she’s close – 2900].
And in Disc Priest news:
“If a group is getting on to you for using PW:Shield as a Discipline
priest (or jeez even a Holy priest), you have my permission to say “GC
says you’re doing it wrong.”
There you go.
