ETA: If you can go into a heroic in pvp gear and do 15k DPS, this post is not about you. Also, there’s a line between “I am a PVPer stepping into PvE content” and “I’m a PvEr who bought these blues off the AH when I dinged 85 and didn’t bother to reforge, gem, or enchant anything, so that I could have random people carry me through heroics.” It is the latter who have sparked my ire.
Dear DPS in Full PVP Gear,
Look, I realize that using PVP gear to cheese the ilevel requirements is a quick and easy way into the new heroics. Really, I do–see my own pvp shoulders? But please understand one thing: the heroics themselves will not be quick and easy while you’re limping along doing less than half of the DPS of everyone else. 9k is not an acceptable amount of DPS.
You can’t count on some uber DPS trying to cap VP coming along and carrying your sorry, lazy ass. Murphy’s Law states that you will be tossed in a group with all or one of the following:
- other DPS doing the exact same thing and sucking just as hard
- someone on an alt still figuring out WTF they are doing
- some fucking idiot who thinks that wearing half healing and/or tanking gear to DPS is somehow fucking hunky dory
- someone with 2 FPS
- someone with perfectly good gear who is just That Guy who is terrible no matter what
And then things won’t die fast at all and your healer will run out of mana healing these super long fights while the 2 fps guy stands in bad and OH GOD THE PAIN WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!
Newsflash: the normal heroics are STILL IN THE GAME.
GO FUCKING RUN THEM YOU LAZY ASS COCKKNOB.
Get some other heroic loot and some JP stuff and then maybe, just maybe, you can fucking SUPPLEMENT your shit with pvp gear to cheese the last bit of ilevel, okay?
BUT YOU REALLY CAN’T WEAR JUST PVP GEAR AND NOT MAKE ME WANT TO RIP OUR YOUR ANUS VIA YOUR THROAT.
