    in one of my raids => Instantkick.

    You want loot? - Optimize your gear/gems/enchants
    You want gold? - Never ever try to get in a raid and piss others off

    yeah honestly this thread surprised me with how stringent raid guilds are these days with min/max gearing. i guess i can understand but back when i did raid during the karazan just released days guilds were never this picky from my experience.

    i've always been the type of player that thought play could overcome stats, but i understand with PvE theres a ceiling to 'play' where you can't do much else other than having min/max stats.

    it always depends on the content - when kara was fresh, not many ppl managed to find a good JC (the profession was new and epicgems were not implementet).
    But even in kara, a good player tried to get the maximum out of his toon - kara used to be at a decent difficulty level when it was released.

    There is no excuse for not socketing and enchanting the best available stuff, specially when it's almost free to get.
    I'm talking about progress-raiding here,.. i don't care for other stuff

    Didn't read through the entire 9 pages of this but one comment really bugged me and bugs me in general with people in WoW.

    "50 dps won't make or break a raid"

    Sure, chances are one person missing 50 dps probably won't hurt that much but think if you have 18 dps who do the same thing, then you are missing 900 dps which is a decent chunk. Don't be cheap. Selling yourself and your gear short is not only being stingy with fake money but it is just plain disrespectful to the effort and time of the others you raid with.

    50 dps x 17 or so dps = 850 more dps. It stacks fast, and it will make or break you on bosses with tough enrages.
