Does this make me an "elitist nerd rager"?

Saying trash DPS doesn't matter is equally as dumb as saying boss DPS doesn't matter.

It's a level 90 5-man. The term "Heroic" at this point has lost any meaning - dungeons simply now just have a "level 90 version" and the "non-level 90 version". As long as stuff was dying, who cares? Was in a group with an Aff lock in Stormstout Brewery doing 15k DPS on bosses. Fortunately I and one of the other DPS were easily making up the shortfall, so what does it matter?

Except no. Trash DPS will be over inflated due to AoE spam, and while classes/specs with better AoE (And especially tanks) will shine on trash while others with weaker AoE will fall behind, it is in no way indicative of what DPS will be like on a boss, which is the only time where DPS will actually be important.

Sure, but it still matters.

Trash dps can also suffer due to the speed of level 90 5 mans (I like it, Hak). Most tanks will round up pretty much all trash on the way to a boss and be constantly moving which makes it very hard for some classes to rattle out much of anything

People who like to play in good groups and not take ages upon ages.
Call me elitist, but I shouldn't be doing 50% of the damage as tank in a dungeon. Blazing through dungeons is much more entertaining than spending ages on a boss because people are doing dps that would have been shameful in ICC.

I've just gotten used to 4-manning dungeons I suppose... either through AFK peoples, or people doing crap DPS. My output is reasonably decent, and I usually do runs with my Monk Brewmaster friend - their damage is currently obscene - so don't really concern myself if there's a DPS lagging behind, as long as they're making some kind of effort. I do get stroppy at the AFK people.

I love idiots who say trash DPS doesn't matter. Trash is 75% of 5 man instances.


I usually AFK raid trash. Cause it doesn't matter.

5 mans I want to get in and get out asap.

I wouldn't have agreed with you and spouted off a comment like "lolheroics" a few days ago until I ran with people in full heroic/raidfinder gear who could barely kill the first boss of scholomance before the ice wall hit.
