I used to laugh at a post "535+ flex 2" But I'm starting to change my mind.
So many players in flex pugs are below mediocre at best. 525 dps with legendary cloak and gem, a raid finder 536 wep on Galakras with constant stream of adds only pulling below 130k AOE, or 100k single target dps sustained is considerably low. The group was not one in which the adds get bursted down and those who are lower i level had nothing else to kill, the dps was terrible enough that we had constant stream of adds, i was a healer and took down at least half of the banners and totems cause people don't want to shoot them down. Had to call out to shoot down Galakras in a time frame when there was not a single shammy alive, and even after the adds were down, Galakras health went down slowly. We had one player refusing to follow our instructions to stack, we didn't wipe only BECAUSE of him but he died which didn't help. But without sufficient DPS, the fire damage becomes unhealable and we wiped.
This has been on going on for a while. Unless I join a 535+ or 540+ which is about the I level needed to afford plenty of mistakes, the group wipes constantly and does not down many encounters. Am I just unlucky or is this experience widespread.
