Note that this occured in the Beta but has no spoilers whatsoever, unless you count discussion of a Glyph.|
Dear other Hunter
When helping newbies in Jade Forest general chat (5 macros and growing while camping on my vendor mammoth so premades can grab a Rune to get to Org), I discussed how adding a ! to an offensive spell will mean it actually gets cast.
The example I gave was "So, I use /cast !Hunter's Mark then on a new line /petattack and it works fine".
You proceeded to whisper me and tear me a new one over the fact I a) have Hunter's Mark macroed OMG! and b) "waste" a GCD when I can just use a glyph that auto-applies HM when casting various shots.
Dude, wtf? This. Is. Early. Beta. DPS doesn't matter one jot beyond "Holy crap why can't I kill anything" or "Wait, this tooltip says I should be doing more/less/OMG WHY IS THAT THING DEAD IN ONE SHOT". There's absolutely no need to be lecturing me over "wasted" GCDs when all anyone is doing is questing, shouting at each other in general, and poking around the new instance. I told you three times I really don't care about using that glyph right now (in fact I'm testing some of the other ones, I'd already used that, saw it did what it said it did the majority of the time, and moved on) and you just would not let it drop!
I do not want to be around you when they finally enable addons in Beta.
