I would have agreed that many warriors do in fact suck, my intention was not to say the entire priest class sucks as they are very useful if played correctly. We don't force the priests in our guild to heal 24 hours a day but we make them understand that when we are in a instance we need them to heal, our 4 tanks can dish out more than enough damage to take the mobs but we need our priest to be watching out for health. I don't boss people around I just inform them of what the job is before the instance starts, if they don't do the job in the instance I remind them again, if they still don't do it then I get bloody annoyed. Having 4 elites beating on you and not getting healed starts to hurt after a while.

How about we move onto something we can all agree on, warlocks suck.

Heh, thats fine. But I felt it was adequately pointed out. That some players suck. I for the most felt you were generalising. Either way. It's water under a bridge as far as I'm concerned. I have a term for what I called "bad players". Mainly because I had experience with one in my teens in beta. His name was "Beastman" and he was a paladin. Who, Looted everything. Never healed. Never helped. Was off running around soloing. and was just an all around player. For now these days I generally call players that remind me of that "Beastmen".

Hell in the beta we had a terrible warrior in our group, we were in the deadmines, a all low level group grinding along. We got to the ship and he starts using charge and pulls around 8 elites. Luckily for our guild groups I know my place as a warrior, I get bItch smacked by elites while they kill them.

Hehe. When I am in a dungeon with someone who makes a bad pull and I know its over. I step back and just wait for everyone to whipe. And then res/return. If I feel its hopeless I have always felt its more productive to let everyone die and res them. Than it is to die with the group. Now obviously this is with a bit discretion. But its reminscent of the old EQ 1 idea where everyone shouted for clerics to camp. Just easier for everyone else if the Priest survives. Unless theres a pally in group. Dying as a priest is the last thing you want to do. Which makes me wonder/question some of the priest Holy Talents which require you to die. Heh

Generally if we get absolutely mobbed I tell everybody to run, bang on shield wall and use challenging shout. For the next 10 seconds the mobs tickle me while the others get to a safe distance, then I get murdered.

Also do you know where the quest is for branching off into sword smithing? I read blizzard lowered the requirements to level 45 which I hit last night and I'm at 261 BS skill. I read somewhere the quest is in a instance with a 62 elite boss, if so I may put it off for a while.

Heh Probably because Druids heal pretty much as well as Priests with the exception of Power Word: Shield and and group heal. People are starting to catch wind of this You poor druids ^^

From what I have read from the small snippets of info available it involves a trek through felwood and some high level instance with a 62 elite boss. But Blizzard lowered the requirements so I'm not sure if the quest may have changed, I will find out damnit.

Lets see. You come in slagging off priest, you get a rebuttal by a few who play the game. The heat turns up a bit because you continue to slag off the priest crowd and you can't handel it and go off on a insult tangant.

Um yeah, we're the kids..

Did anyone hear that supposedly the honor system won't count for PvP, only PvE?? That's effing ridiculous if that's true, it gives PvP no meaning then. They better not do that, some people in general were talking about it yesterday on my daily PK runs in Hillsbrad. If they made the honor system only count for PvE then I'm most def gonna start a petition O_o

Honor simply will not work in pvp, you could get groups of lower levels ganging up on one higher level and he would not be able to kill them otherwise he would get several dishounorable kills (I can't spell today). Also if you had a lower level guild member around you would lose honour for defending him from dying. It is a good idea is the honour system but it simply is not viable in pvp.
