    Bester's increasingly desperate e-begging is now meta? The only meme meta that I'm aware of are all the people playing Frost Mages and spellcleaving all the content, but I didn't notice anyone engaging in such low brow behavior ITT.

    Anyone can cleave except rogues.

    Mages, hunters, warlocks, warriors.. others are healers...

    And only rogues aren't invited to cleave.

    Can anyone lend me money for the mount? I'm still 40 cause I don't feel like playing when the game is being toxic to me.

    Edit: or quest to 42 and you should have mount gold then.

    Not even in an MMO is the commie able to support himself without begging.

    I mean meta-gaming in the sense of manipulating the AH and such. Yeah, that happened to some degree in vanilla but it was spread out given the number of servers.

    There's a reason why women make good healers. They can gossip to their friends at the salon about how they watched their big buff man take down the dragon with his gore-caked sword.

    I killed the boss vs. I healed the guy that killed the boss

    Which would you rather be?

    DPS are white people in 2019. Unappreciated, disliked, but they are the backbone.

    I remember stumbling on a random guild's ventrillo while they were wiping on Tectus. Got a voice altering software that made me sound like Tectus and started taunting and mocking them, calling them out for being weak flesh faggots. Being boss is where it's at.

    If you are a good healer, you can just have a pocket tank and form groups immediately. And if you have a good tank, a shadow priest can heal using vampiric embrace and help out with the DPS, making for quite faster dungeon clears. So, yeah, healer master race.

    Layering strikes again. People have been farming MC between raid resets by layering the whole raid instance. :lol:

    EDIT:


    It was done on stream.

    The best way is to have tank / heal friends so taht you can go with them whenever you want and go out and be effective in the world whenever you arent. So no healers arent chads they are more like the woman chad fucks on the side. Extremlöy important when you need them and sometimes they have to believe the world revolves around them but after you used them you step out of their dungeon and do your thing while they stay behind and start sobbing (and maybe go farm flowers or whatever the fuck weak stuff they are capable off without you)

    There are healers... and then there are healers. I played a resto druid from launch to the end of wotlk and it was fucking terrible before we had an in-dungeon rez. Having one single rez at a 10m cooldown was nerve racking, plus soloing as a resto druid was ridiculous before they implemented dual specs in wotlk.

    Now with classic, imagine the aggravation of healing through these dungeons with shit groups that think they are still playing BFA dungeons, with a 10m rez, and HoT's...

    Not been an issue in any group I have been in, but then I am the tank...

    I am awfully aggressive about kicking out retards. Bad players and women I can deal with, but retail idiots and entitled DPS can suck my dick; I have excelled at DPS and I can tell at a glance if they have the right mindset or not.
    And it works! I am flooded with invitations to tank this or that at all times.

    Too little too late. Layering has done a number on the game already. Hopeful people keep saying that it'll even out in a month or two, but I wonder.

    I wouldn't worry too much: "As soon as possible, we will identify those who knowingly abused this bug in exploitative manner. We will then take appropriate punitive measures."
    They do have crazy tracking methods so it's very easy for them to ban those who exploited it overly.

    Edit: yes, this might be a naive position.
