I’ve run into several instances the past few days where I get snotty advice from people. For example, I have a frost mage, with a build prescribed by a friend of mine that is designed to be both decent enough for heroics [2k plus] and survivable in PVP [no deep freeze, full torment of the weak, no water elemental glyph]. I’m NOT looking to get into much beyond heroics to be honest. I just rather like having one of every class and I’m slowly gearing her.
I got into a pug and I pull in top damage in the instance. I’m the only one above the dk tank in fact. Said DK tank, with low hit, low expertise, squishy as all getout etc, begins to ridicule ME for not having the water elemental glyph and being fail etc because SHE has a frost mage and KNOWS. Her frost mage is all levels of awesome you see and I am full of fail because I’m not doing it like her.
I replied that my main was in fact a DK tank and before I could add another word, she disappeared. I suppose she didn’t want to hear what I was about to dish back. I was a bit disappointed, but not interested enough to create a level one over on her server and give her advice she didn’t want anyway.
If you want to give advice, don’t sit there and tell me how awesome you are and how you have a frost mage, so you know better etc. Sure you can let me know you have one, but I’d couch it more in the terms of “I do thus and such on my frost mage and I find it works really well for me, you might want to give it a try”. I’ve done that with several dks who I personally wanted to slap silly.
Be careful how you tell people to play their classes, especially when they are pulling their weight. They might be qualified to return the favor with your current toon.
