    I have to agree, but I am not sure if their toons they show as their main if that toon is really the toon they play on. It could just be an alt toon for show, so they are not overwhelmed with people asking them questions and such on their servers, now this is all an assumption.

    It is their main. I called Lhivera out on the official forums yesterday for not raiding and hardly playing her mage if at all, and this was part of the response I got:

    I have about three years of experience in a server-first raiding guild, raiding 40- and 25-man content 4-5 nights a week, 3-4 hours a night. In fact, the reason I largely stopped raiding was that Frost scaled too poorly to remain viable once we reached Sunwell. It's been a major focus of my feedback in the years since to see that flaw in the game's design corrected, and I'm very pleased that the developers ultimately came around to that point of view as well and have been working to improve the situation.

    I'm sure some will argue that experience doesn't count unless it happened recently, but I dismiss this argument with prejudice. Raid mechanics haven't really changed all that much over the years, and if you can't infer from past experience how a spec and abilities will work in new encounters, that's a problem with your ability to draw inferences; not a problem for me.
    Thread is here. Agree with me or don't agree with me, I just gave up because calling out Lhivera in the middle of the official forums is a minefield.

    Very Understandable, I was looking it and over and was getting very concerned, that someone with an MVP title that holds sway in the community, doesn't play a mage in current content or in the last few XPACs. It seems she is basing all her information on assumptions to facilitate her own ideas and thoughts on the specs. Everything about mages has changed since vanilla and the fight mechanics are different and such to influence different ways to play a mage in different specs.

    So basically a cock and bull story about how he switched from Warcraft to Forumcraft. Right.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    Even if its the truth.. All he hasn't raided in years. And even worse only as frost? Frost was terrible in PvE even back then and him saying raid mechanics havent changed that much.. Ye abt that

    You definitely should. Class forums have been neglected by the devs for a very long time, because "they are for class strategies and bla bla". They prefer to read the Damage Dealing forum.

    I was thinking about it, I didn't want to look like I was spamming the forums or have tons of trolls from other classes, hijacking my thread.
