We do recognise that others like to have moans too and we love to hear them – so If you’d like to write a guest post just drop us a line!
“One of the most annoying things about leveling is when you are in a dungeon and this question gets asked: “So, who has recount?”
‘Recount’ is a DPS meter that shows the amount of damage done to a boss either in an encounter or over the span of the whole raid, which you can post to any chat window to inform others. Now, the main purpose of recount is to show how much damage you’re doing to a certain boss or mobs, but while leveling I see people using it more and more and getting uptight if someone’s DPS is not at a particular level.
I mean… really?! Why do people care if the rogue or mage is only doing 1k dps in a WoTLK normal dungeon?? Being a hunter, my DPS is usually quite high, but I don’t go out my way to hit the DPS that is required for the HC version of old content… I’m only focusing on not wiping and killing the bosses! That’s all people should be bothering about while leveling but oh nooo…. I have even seen people moan about DPS in Gnomeregan of all places! A friend once told me this: “people who moan about DPS at low levels only do it because they are the ones doing low DPS at end game”. Now, I don’t know how true that statement is, but if you’re going to moan about DPS in old level content I am going to /ignore you!”
So, what do you think? Are DPS meters at level 30 really necessary?!
