Blizzard really are clueless sometimes aren't they?
I quit raiding because I don't want to do shit I don't enjoy just to raid. If I want to raid with my current guild (clears all content but not top 10 on the server) I _HAVE_ to do dailies, LFR etc or other people will bitch and moan at me. It's not a personal choice to do it or not, you'll make the rest of your raid that did do it angry with you for not pulling your weight. Why are blizzard so utterly unable to see this?
Quitting raiding is just the best thing for me atm or potentially spend months finding another guild with people I like. Bearing in mind I've been with this guild since MC in vanilla so leaving isn't exactly a viable option.
Spell dps trinket compared to others trinkets except tank one is a shit. Bring it 1k int and haste on use instead haste and int on use...
If you want the boss to go down easier, you put in the extra effort to get the upgrades you can. If you are okay with a challenge, then work with what you have. Not everything is supposed to be handed out, some rewards actually require effort.
It's not that Blizzard is clueless, it's just that people don't know what they want.
I laughed at the fact they consider daily quest grinding "optional". Please do tell me where the hell I can spend my valor points if I dont have the rep from the stupid dailies.
What people don't know is their self serving attitude of entitlement goes both ways - you don't NEED the gear from LFR or dailies to succeed. You will have an EASIER time getting through content if you do them which directly equates to overcoming a lack of skill on the part of yourself or others in your group.
All the people pissing and moaning about HAVING to do LFR or dailies need to be a bit more introspective and ask themselves why the feel they NEED the gear. Then they need to realize that if you need every edge you can get to beat the current content, maybe you should be THANKFUL that these outlets exist for a chance at better gear. Imagine being forced to do Heroic MSV with just normal mode MSV drops? Sure, there's some that would love that opportunity that aren't in a world top 25 guild, but there's lots of us who would rather have different ways of gearing up than just bashing our heads against a boss because the healer can't learn to stay out of the fire.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." -Alexander Tytler
Just seems like people are to used to 35% dmg buff that was in DS and expect things to roll over by ignoring the majority of mechanics and out gearing content.
I have been raiding in dungeon blues and the majority of problem raiding with PUGs is the raid not paying attention to mechanics. I bet the majority of raiders don't even understand the overload and petrification from Stone Gaurds. As a healer I see so many raiders in normals just standing in ice traps and pools and then thinking I'm bad when I oom half way through the fight. If they didn't take so much avoidable dmg, it would be a different story. Skill is huge but so many are forgetting that after a year of outgearing.

Seriously, Normal DS was way too easy even w/o buff.
I don't get the LFR complaints from Normal/Heroic raiders. A Normal/Heroic raid group (even a 10-man) could queue LFR together and bang it out in under two hours. If it's worth doing, they'd do it. It would be a walk in the park. So the complaint seems to be that they don't want to spend the extra 1-2 hours farming LFR. Sorry if I don't cry a river for them. I guess I come from an age where you had to run entire old raids every week rather than just an hour or two in LFR.
"After 2 weeks of raiding, we haven't killed the Stone Guards yet. This is not a problem in tanking position, low dps or bad healing. Its a gear only problem."
Obviously not skill related. Obviously.
The players in Cata that told others it was an L2P issue and then got called hardcore elitists and told to sit in a corner by CMs. Now in MoP the CMs are saying the same things that those who got branded as "hard core elitists" except they are getting praised by the community.

hm.. don't understand about "new" items, which added to Klaxxi and August Celestial
now we have feet on hit/crit from celestial, 489 ilvl - Void Flame Slippers
then in 5.1 we would get another feet on hit/crit from celestian, 496 ilvl - Beach-Born Sandals
those boots are same, but id would be another.. question => if i buy 489 now, it ups in 5.1 to 496, or not?)
New to the board here.. Hope to get some nice discussions going!
