Forgive me, I don't usually do this, And I know i'll be rated down and flamed and whatever, But i felt this was important to say.

A RDM, Vajnonevajno (wtfname lol) I don't suggest pting with him. If you want to, well...go for it I guess but this rdm really REALLY sucks. You WILL not get hasted, you WILL not get refreshed, and he will randomly just ditch your pt. =/

haha funny story about this guy. Wish I had read this first. So I was doing CoP 5-3 Louverances path. An extremely simple bc. We get to the warp moblin and he logs saying he doesn't beleive that it's the right way and wants to find out himself, so we all get there he comes back like 10 mins later finally makes it to the mining shaft. We talk out the plans, being our rdm with gravity he asked him to kite the bugbear, the blm would back him up while we solo'd our mobs. Everyone said they were ready we go in, and well to say the least we nearly wiped on this simple bc. Because he didn't know how to kite, at all. He stood healed the pld *while some of us were being owned by a moblin and bugbear at the same time*. After we thankfully won we asked him why he didn't kite or really help us at all except cure bombing the pld (who didn't even need it). Then he just started getting irate and disbanded after continually asking us what we are doing (we were farming gold keys and we told him countless times. Needless to say, I won't be asking him to join us on Airship fight. And I would be careful if your actually on that fight and he joins. In all seriousness he seems like one of those players who bought their account and had no idea how to play and tried to jump right into high level pts and events. He's not bad at Macro curing though.

You know, some people ARE open to constructive criticism. I was in a party last night with 2-3 career bards that were giving me great advice left and right. The result?

Not that I'm saying I was a bad BRD to begin with, but I became a significantly better one by the end of that party :P

The only problem with that Cat, is that some people who don't know wtf they are doing also try to give advice. Some people don't do the research to know the difference between what is useful and what isn't. Which means you could end up with much better players or much worse after taking said advice. Alot of people nowadays can't seem to figure out which is good and which is bad advice.

I don't have fancy smancy screenies like you, but for an example, I had a party with a blu/thf a couple weeks ago. The blu/thf thought he was doing a great job only casting spells when SA was ready. Granted the SA spells did well, but not once in the whole 2 hour party did he TA or cast any other spells cept the one he TA'd. Sat on full mp the whole party, wore his str gear and full af the whole party(blu af hands and feet are useless for DDing, and head and pants are situational, and this party was not one of those situations). This was a lvl 65 Blu fyi.

Not to mention that like 90% of people get angry when you try to point out that they might be playing their job wrong.

I think a big issue with someone telling you how to play your job better is their own lack of knowledge. For instance. If Nagamaki were to walk up to my monk75 and tell me 'wear this **** so you dont suck'- or 'why do you do that? its pointless. wear this gear instead and do this.' I'd probably doubt his reasons(not really but for examplesake) and ignore it, continuing to wear whatever gear I think is right.

However if he were to say, if these pieces of gear because the total dex+ will put you into the next tier of critical % rate on this enemy, giving you a substantial increase in Acc and DoT via crits, without sacraficing other gear slots.

So really the key part is that when someone is telling you how to do your job it helps if they have all the details on how it works. For example I -KNOW- a RDM is capable of a full haste cycle and refresh cycle, but I don't know timings and MP spent/vs. how much refresh recovers, and how often you would have to heal etc. So I wouldn't tell a RDM how to do it. I don't know how many tics while resting you can do at minimum between each fight to keep going untill that next convert timer is up. So I won't tell them how to do it. I say if you can prove what you're telling the person to do, via ingame , accurate examples..do it. Even then, some people won't agree untill they are dead on the ground wondering if they should have listened to you or not, or wondering why you are such a jackass for not doing what THEY said.
