So, it looks like Affliction will be top dog in Icecrown.
You know what? That’s peachy fine by me. Yes, long gone are the days where I really cared about Destruction being the top DPS spec (OK.. I lie… I would have always been Destruction no matter what – see Vanilla WoW!). I’ve stopped caring that I keep getting beaten by Arcane Mages with their two button spam. After all, I’m pretty gimpy anyway, no sense getting my knickers in a twist! So what that I only do 4.5k DPS (in a 25man, too!) when the Arcane Mage is pushing 8 or 9k. I don’t mind. I try my best with what I have. Slowly but surely, my gear is getting better, and I might even improve some. Scary, huh?
It doesn’t matter that people say only scrubs do 4.5k. I don’t feel bad when people talk about doing 9k DPS on Twitter.
I’ll always have SSC. When I am alone and cold in the night time, I think back and remember how I trampled those bosses. How I smashed my way to the top of the meter, joining the guild as an undergeared Kara player who had never set foot in a 25 man in her life, and worked my way up. Even though there were nights when I was close to giving up, when I thought I could never push the sort of numbers they needed, I kept going.
Eventually, I got somewhere.
And then came BT.
Single target DPS baby!
… So what, I like to epeen a little, OK?
Thing is… DPS goes in cycles. You can’t be the top dog forever. But you can damned well enjoy it while you are :-)Tags: Affliction, Black Temple, epeen
