I hope this topic is still alive
Being altoholic and after just moving my current main char to new realm - suffering permanent lack of funds to transfer rest of my babies - to kill some time between raids I am levelling my panda monk.
And raiding is HELL!
I am strongly convinced new expansion dragged thousands of Donalds into the game. At least seems like that doing LFG.
And no offence - mostly tanks.
I have the feeling anyone playing class with tanking option is choosing it "cuz is the easiest and awsomest" to play.
Mostly in absolutely unfitted gear.
I did Zul Farrak run - we started with drood tank who was losing health on trash with warp speed - in addition not being able to hols aggro. At all.
I've checked his gear - almost full heirloom set...
Was kicked almost immediately after we ressed.
But so far best Donald was on Utgarde Pinnacle. Again bear druid.
Not only instead of tanking - was collecting quest items - wiping us,
his gear (if he has changed it):
Cloth intellect heirloom hat
Agi shoulders (yay)
Heirloom Strength dps back
Agi chest, wrists, gloves, belt, pants, boots, staff (yay)
Both rings tanking strength
hit & haste trinks (ok)
Funnily I was kicked out when pointing tank was "not very good" and not knowing own class (statwise)
The higher level - the worst type of Donalds I'm meeting. I understand people on lvl 1-40 may have issues with gear etc, but 70-80? Having absolutely unsuitable gear imo is a huge "no-no" - especially where there are plenty of WoW guide sites to look for advice.
I'm afraid there will be more and more Donald stories as more and more new players don't give a sh*** to learn about own class or dungeon/raids tactics and treat it as another CoD type of game where you look only for "better" gear - stats don't matter.
I've already gave up on LFR (Loot For Retards as it is known) because among 25 in the group at least 10 are Donalds
