Twitter was annoying me earlier. What was Twitter annoying me about?
*points at title*
Hybrids. Specifically, whether or not a DPS hybrid “should” have a heal or tanking dual-spec. Is a person who plays a hybrid class as only DPS an instant second stringer, or otherwise looked down upon? Why should they be? Just because they can tank/heal doesn’t mean that they want to. Even if they do want to, there’s a possibility that they won’t be any good at it.
“very little sympathy for people who don’t want to do what the raid needs” was one comment. How is forcing someone into what they don’t like helpful? Oh sure, it’ll get you by in the meantime, but over time they’ll get cranky, and either their performance/attendance will start to flag, or they’ll /gquit entirely. What’ll that get ya?
Far better to find someone willing to make the adjustment, or who already fulfills that role.
Besides, where does that put every rogue, hunter, mage, and warlock? Are they now also second stringers because they can’t tank or heal? No? Why not? If you demand that all of your hybrids be able to fill one of those other roles or be looked down upon, why not the pure DPS?
I’d rather have happy DPS that has to rotate raid slots than happy DPS and one pissed off holy paladin.
Then again I’m also the priest that twitches when you mention holy, so make of that what you will.
