I'm a lancer and to avoid this elitism I personally do not click the box saying I'm willing to be a leader. However I will NOT run BT in a group with people that are fresh level 60s.
This is such a hypocritical statement that you lost all validity in your argument the moment you mentioned the bolded sentence.
Not only are you lazy, but you just want the quick run, get your drops, make your gold, get your elite gear and show off your virtual digitized epeen prowess.
Stop trying to convince yourself you are different or better please its annoying.
You must not have any idea what I'm talking about. You need gear to do the last boss. The rest of the instance doesn't really drop anything. Would you take a 14 year old to iraq to fight? That's what you're asking me to do and that isn't American.
I suggest having tournaments on your respective servers. Make it a player driven community instead of flocking into the instant gratification battle ground sloth for brain community world of warcraft is. You know where you grind for honor to get that piece of gear that will be replaced in a few months by another piece of gear that you have to grind for that will be replaced by another piece of gear in a few months....
Right now we have all the tools we need to make pvp meaningful to ourselves but we lack the leadership of motivated individuals to do them all. On my server Valley of Titans we have organized pvp turnies and some of them are gaining prestige. It just takes effort on everyone's part to be there.
To all the Lancers out there just remember 1 thing.
Haters gonna hate.

There does need to be a secondary tanking option. (I am a Lancer) If warriors are to tank then they need to get abilities which enable them to be evasive but not hinder the melee DPS's damage for timed fights.
I think the community will have to adapt a more 'on the run' play style with warriors as tanks just as they have adapted a 'I'm never going to get a heal from this mystic' play style. (I was joking, but mystics have their strengths in their group buffs. Fights are a lot faster with them vs a priest)
I suggest matching up Mystic with Warrior and Priest with Lancer. More damage + Evasion evens out things.
While there are numerous posts on specific class changes for tanking there are hardly any posts on the repercussions of those said changes. I think the class matching for optimal grouping scenarios needs to be addressed and is probably why these changes haven't been implemented. It would be devastating to this game if they introduced a 'fail' tank to the LFG system. I suggest a Warrior buff and a Mystic buff in tandem to enable this change.
Post your thoughts; perhaps we can initiate the change we seek to keep this game thriving.
Where is the line between a pk guild and a pvp guild?
