    Is there a forum like arena junkies for PvE?

    Where skilled people discuss?

    Everywhere I go is the same, a crowd of casuals defending LFR and calling raiders elitists

    Yep, elitistjerks.com is the best place for theorycrafting when it comes to PvE.

    Well, judging by that statement, they would be right in the elitist part, wouldn't they?

    Really?

    EJ is a theorycrafting site, not where you go to complain about filthy casuals getting set bonuses in LFR. You will be banned in no time if you have nothing worthwhile to contribute.
    they say that doors open up soon as you find the missing key
    that’s probably why I’m in this bitch shining
    jump up in the sky and put the stars into alignment
    I rep the ATF in case you need to be reminded
    and the bandwagon's full but you can try an' run behind it

    Arena Junkies must really have improved since I went there last time. Unless discuss means dramatize the new wintrade/banned team, and bitch about everything else with 1 well done (though probably badly written) post between 10000 lols and noob.

    Anyways, try to discuss it here, for example. If you start the post in an intelligent way, you will probably get according answers.

    I don't know what Arena Junkies you've been to but it's just a flamefest where everyone hates each other. Besides it's completely dead.

    Are you sure it's the kind of forum you're looking for?

    EJ is basically dead, so MMO is all you got.

    If you stay out of general discussion, this site is pretty decent for quality discussion. The class forums are pretty good. Maintankadin is also decent for strategy threads, but a lot less active.

    But no, there's never been a PvE-centered forum that excluded people based on progression/skill

    MMO-C is the best site now. The WoW US D&R is too unmoderated and cluttered by LFR threads. Stuff like 10v25 is allowed there as long as its game-related, but on a fansite we can put stricter restrictions on what topics can be discussed.

    For the most part though, I don't see a whole lot of the bleeding edge post here. Most of it is via their streams where they do Q&A. There's potential monetary value in providing help on their streams rather than the forums. I see a lot of good help on the encounter specific threads on R&D however, but I can say the Mage forum is a bit lacking. I'll see top Mages congregating in the chatrooms of major streams but not on forums. Still though, the MMO-C Mage forum is the best resource we have right now for our class. I've just had to take to streams to learn some additional tricks here and there.

    EJ as a 25 man guild is still progressing, but yeah their site died off =(

    Elitistjerks is exactly like AJ! It was previously a great resource that has since fallen into disuse and is mostly out of date or incomplete.

    For Feral Druids, http://fluiddruid.net/forum/index.php]Fluid Druid >>> Elitist Jerks. Excellent info continually updated by a friendly, helpful community.

    Go to your class forums (here on MMO), and figure out which players actually know what they are talking about.

    QFT. Both are pretty shit now. Most of the stuff there is out of date; such a waste of potential. I've actually turned to using Mmo-C's own guides more than other sites atm - Not that they're bad, just previously never 'needed' them.

    That's what I thought. That place has been minimally updated except to post "Look what we killed!" screenies.

    The best theory crafters from EJ have left the game, sad but true.
    You are lying! I never hit you! YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, LISA!

    That and for the moment at least I personally would expect less and less "guides" and more and more "discussion" for the time being, meaning to truly get good information you would need to read through discussions and sift out which ideas are correct and incorrect, in a way participating in a bit of TC of your own.

    Thing with EJ is they have gone too soft, which has lead to lots of idiots posting heaps of useless shit now without repercusion. I had a mod tell me a rotation macro was ok and well inside the rules the other day.

    MMOC is probably the best site at the moment. It's pretty rare but there are some good discussions on heroic bosses once you wade past everyone's opinion on LFR and "help N Horridon w/ logs"

    Someone cleared Dragon Soul and already aims to insult half the playerbase. Good on you, Billy Boy.

    But, to be honest, can someone make up some site that appeals to these people? Honestly, no amount of "bads" or "casuals" could harm this game's community more than all these people that do no more than to insult others and spill hatred and vitriol into the forums.

    Plus, if you're THAT good why the heck you need a forum for? Even if X forum has "bads" posting in it you surely are good enough to filter them out and recognize what's worthwhile, no?
