Re: [Cataclysm] Arcane mage 4 piece

I was the only Main Mage that answered. I just don't have a 4 piece set. I gave my opinion. It was never discussed with my interpretation. It seemed like the OP almost did not like the answers he was getting, or knew he wasn't going to like the answer to the question, making the OP seeming pushy.

ummm, icy veins? sorry we arent good at helping you play your class, I guess (not to mention you dont even provide the bonus in your OP, you expect us to know it off the top of our heads.)

Methinks this might be "Watermasta" here again with his DFAS.MIL email address. Guess he got all fed up with SWTOR already and came back to WoW in a month...and after all that trolling about how WoW sucks compared to SWTOR. Poor guy. And if he's not Watermasta, then IMHO, he's burned any bridge for "real" help questions from a DFAS.MIL address.

Why do you always have to act like a dick?

His clearly looking for constructive help

No he wasn't. I don't think JB comes from the "everyone gets a trophy era" like some of us here. We give it to you straight and demand facts and prior investigation before whining. Grow a pair Tyson...

JB always starts off as a dick. You have to prove to him that you've done your homework before he is willing to communicate directly with you. He generally assumes people are lazy, especially those with handles he hasn't seen. That's JB. It's how he plays the elitist. right or wrong, it's just what you get when JB starts typing.

the OP asked a question, then complained about non-answer, while ignoring answers given, leading to an overwhelming feeling that JB's gut reaction to this guy was probably appropriate. It was a specific question that few here have enough experience to provide definitive answers.

Tyson stood up to JB... he has a pair. He wasn't wrong about JB being a dick, he was just a little too altruistic about the OP, IMO.

I feel like i suck now in my "mageness". For once i know more than the lay person in a damn thread and he did not even quote it or discuss it at any length. I am starting to believe my guildies now. FML

From being in a hardcore guild in the past it is not being a "dick" as much as it is being elitist. Even in a HC guild when you ask a question you best come with all your ammo, not leave anything not fired. An elitist looks as that question as being bothersome and will not help him. Instead of the OP coming in pasting the 4 piece bonus, and giving different variables or rotations to start the convo off. Then JB would parse the info and give his opinion and would help. Elitist will not just hand out info. It almost has to be earned. Kind of like RESPECT!!!

this is actually a relative concept. for JB to be "being a dick" it REALLY has to be something out-right in your face. We all accept JB for who he is. That only makes him less of a dick to us.

edit: OP still hasn't come back since his QQ. So, JB was clearly justified in blowing this guy off. and for the record, I am actually sticking up for JB.

Nah Cig, I read your stuff man, you gave him an answer, if he didn't like it he could have done some more research or waited for more.

Heroic content never appealed to me. If I beat the boss once, what's the point to go back on hard mode and beat him again for a minor upgrade? I guess that's the way I play all games though from MW3 to Halo. Play on Normal, beat it, then call it "Mission Accomplished." I honestly don't get too much reward out of wiping over and over again. I now also play "casually" and raid current content 2 nights a week for 3 hours. Casually for me is still getting into 25m FL raids (which I did last night and got to Rag), ICC mount runs, 25m OS3d, etc. I like to play with other people but I don't like the frustration of heroic progression.

I feel the same way. I like to occasionally "try it on heroic" but I won't beat my head against the wall (again) just to down it on heroic.

RL > WoW. I'm the same way, "used to be progressed fast with new content drop," gave up the "need" to watch the wowprogress numbers. I don't regret my decision, I'm sorry it sounds like you do.

I'm really upset that my friend has ruined my name on these forums. Note that i am not at the @Dfas.mil but @USMC.mil. I played a mage as main for close to 6 years. I quit just before Cata came out, so i can't answer the question as I have not kept up with the new game mechanics.

You guys take things was to serious :P. Learn to lightnen up. 3 things:

1. I did do my research. I even stated that I went to EJ and Icy veins. EJ is out of date and icy veins doesnt mention what I was looking for

2. I felt there was no need to provide the set bonuses and/or rotations. If you didnt alrdy know what the set bonus was then you couldnt help me. This was an advance question that could only be anwsered by a knowledgeable mage. Not some restro druid that "thinks" he knows how to play a mage

3. Hell yes I was pushy. I am not here to make friends :P I wanted anwsers. And I got what I wanted so all of you can suck it now

Oh and like I said before thank you for the people who actually tried to help out.

I like the rapport you built up. Expect no further help from anyone in the future. Also, your ridonkulous, vague, unfounded post is typical of HR personnel at DFAS. --

with anons, you can only choose to just ignore all of them. I'd like to ignore all "@dfas.mil" addresses. You can ignore members individually, though.

OP comes in wanting to know how to play his class with little info given. How was that being a dick. I am sorry. He can't get his answers here, take 5 minutes before raid and look it up on on icy veins, ej, or noxxic. It isn't that hard. I am sure if someone new exactly what to tell him, they wouldve. Not everyone checks this site every second of the day. Mages with the 4 piece could have been afk.

Start of fight:
1. Cast ABx10 without blowing any cooldowns. Possibly stick one AM in there so your mana doesn't go down too fast. Goal is to stack the buff.

I am still laughing at the fact that a class rotation consists of hitting one button ten times in a row. What a joke.
