BUT if their gear has been upgraded since the last time they logged out on that spec the webpage version can be skeweed.

It'd be fairly rare that the cached version on WH would be significantly different than the current gear - a piece or two different in most circumstances. Plus, WH does have the "live view" option, which goes in and (I believe) extracts a real-time snapshot of the person's gear setup.

Case in point.. Ret pali asking to join. CLEARLY in t9 gear.. the 'live' version was for holy gear and the 'other spec' was in blues. It's rare.. but it happens.

Of course I have an issue relying JUST on GS. Too many folks get nazi-esque about it.

Exactly. Between the two, though, I'm heartily in favor of the one that forces manual inspections at the worst. Raw GS doesn't take too many things into account - whether you've gemmed properly, or things like trinkets - for many classes, the I-level 200 and 213 trinkets were superior to many of the T8 and T9 trinkets/relics, or at least on par with them - but keeping them was a massive drain on total GS. When a single mod was known to cause people blowing 25-50 badges on items they never even took out of their bank except to wear before joining a PuG and removing after...yeah.

Yeah some of the later trinkents/relics/artifacts suck wind.

The problem with GS is it doesn't equal experience or player skill.  ><;

I prefer to think of it as player knowledge.  I have a rogue alt.. one of my old guildies has a rogue who was nearly 600 points below me but knew his rotation and was nearly 2k ahead of me.

I did a bunch of instances today before my study time, and was out DPSing and Damaging my party. >>;  I'm the tank.  Sigh.  And I am not even geared for ICC.

I am certainly anxiously awaiting the expansion. Just watched some video flyovers of Org and a few areas and the changes seem quite awesome. Looking forward to lvling my pally again. Raiding has been getting a little boring.

I casually glance at gearscore for random dungeons to know if I'm going to have to pay close attention to health bars or if I can afk follow and just place a healing stream totem to do the healing. Anything more than that though... not worth it. Too many times have high GS noobs been out dpsed by others. Need to get a skillscore that gives an accurate measurement of skill =P. Perhaps something that records how many times you die to retarded things that others can see and you cant reset the count.

PS I play a resto shaman. Of all the characters I have raided with resto shaman has been the absolute funnest. Healing > dps > tanking.

Dumb question....  How do you tell what your GS is?  I've looked and can't find it.

If you have the GS addon open up your character profile. It should be in the lower left corner of your character display area.

Also there is addon which records who people die on boss features which can be easily avoided. Do not know addon's name tough but seen our raidleaders use it on occassion. It also marks people who move too slow from effect which does not kill you instantly.

With my gearscore about ten points off 5k, there is an ICC 10man tonight. AHHHH!

-Runs around flailing and hides under the bed-

Tanking ICC... Scary shit.

It's not that bad.. you should be able to do up to Saurfang with no issues with that score.. and I think you can get the 'sock puppet guys' with it easy. Beyond that.. don't know, we haven't had much luck with the others.

Yes, you think that, Callie....but his group probably won't be as forgiving..>_> They'll probably have too many sticks up their asses about gear score to listen.

I hate those addons.... >.>
I actually used to stand in patches and what not to get back mana. Of course I was disc then and the tree was better for it, but still. I would stand in a patch of fire for a sec with my arc mage to get my absorption to proc.
