- abysmal rotation / sequence?
- lack of focus or attention to the task at hand?
- unorthodox use of the Need / Greed system?
- incomprehensible talent spec?
- odd choice in stat priority or gear?
- treatment of the other players in the group or guild?
Is it when you first notice it, or only after it’s had some time to work your nerves like a cheese grater? How about when it affects your own gaming experience? Are you motivated by a sincere desire to expand that player’s knowledge, or only by the urge to feel superior for a moment or two?
I ran a heroic VH on my ‘lock the other day and posted completely respectable numbers on Recount. The other warlock in group… well, let’s just say that she had me a bit confused. Stacked intellect, a weird spec, (I believe she may have been choosing talent point placement via the ‘tail on the donkey’ method) and with just under half of the dps output I was boasting, I wasn’t even sure exactly where to start. “Re-roll,” may have been the quickest bit of advice I could offer.
I said nothing. I didn’t comment on any of the major issues I noticed, such as how she was specced for Chaos Bolt but never used it. I didn’t ask why she was so fond of her Drain Mana spell or question her choice of footgear. I just distributed the shards at the end of the run, thanked everyone in attendance for the group, and set off in search of mats to enchant my new bracers.
**I just armory’ed this player and noticed that she has since earned the “Bloodsail” title. She logged out in full pirate gear, including the hat, a sword of the Whale, and this. So at least we know she has a sense of humor.
