Sounds silly that we’d need an argument FOR DBM, right? I mean, who DOESN’T use DBM, or their favorite equivilant?
Yeah, about that. Anyone who has ever tried to require an addon knows that someone, somewhere, will bitch about it. Back in BoO I tried to make everyone use DBM, but it was really hard when my co-GM couldn’t be arsed to use it himself.
“You don’t notice,” he’d brag. “I know the fights.”
“Steve,” I said wearily, or more often angrily, ”I notice every single god damn time you ask how long it is until something happens and I have to look at my DBM timers and tell you.”
He may have gotten away with that in Wrath, but such an attitude is a total no-go in Cata. Fights are chaotic with MANY things to pay attention to, and stay out of–or in! Add in trying to keep on top of your rotation and procs an you’re going to miss some things.
No, you will. You WILL. You absofuckingloutely WILL, stop arguing with me–oh here, look. IT’S SCIENCE.
“Well,” some of the problem children may splutter, “SOME people notice. SOME people can split their attention better. I’m one of them.”
Really? Every single fight? You’re never tired or distracted or have a cat walk in front of you or otherwise need of GIANT BLUE TEXT?
I call bullshit.
Go install the god damned mod.
(Thankfully I don’t have this problem with anyone in SiB, but I figured that someone, somewhere…)
