How to make them listen.

Postby Padwani » Thu Mar 17, 2011 3:03 pm

So I recently got my Neck and the Valor ring. I know the ER ring is better for Pre Throne but i'm lazy.

Anyways i've been getting a lot of hate on the neck/ring because It has agi and haste. NO matter how hard I try they can't seem to grasp the concept.

I'd love to get a bit of help.

Your post is awful.

Read the stickies, there is a dedicated post for gear advice.

My advice is to stop being lazy. What neck are you on about? There are two that fit the bill and to find them someone has to take the time to search on wowhead, why did you not give a link to them?

Stop being lazy or stop tanking.

You have miss-understood what I'm asking.

and in terms of being lazy. I was referring to my Earthern Ring Rep.

How do I explain that an agi piece is BiS for a tank without giving complicated math to the morons that play this game.

If they don't understand pally tank mechanics then you're probably wasting your time explaining it to them.

If they're morons as you say, they definitely won't understand. But if they are morons, why care about their opinion?

I guess the more relevant question is, "hate from whom?"

If it's somebody important, then
Agility gives paladins dodge at a very favorable rate, and mastery is our best stat, so this ring ends up giving me better survivability than many of the poorly-itemized strength "tanking" rings. Yes, it's stupid, but that's how the math works out. :(


That simultaneously gives
1) your reasoning
2) the impression that you're not happy about it, but you're doing it because it's optimal, thus inviting sympathy instead of combativeness.

If they ask for or disagree with the math, you could always point them here...
