Im getting sick of all these people asking for DPS/Threat meters for the game.
Learn to Tank/DPS effectively without looking at a meter to tell you how you are doing. Most of you DPS'ers dont even pay attention to threat meters in games with them anyways so why do you even want this?
Learn to DPS without a friggin meterr. I am sick to death of raiding with ePeen kiddies who dont give a damn about beating an encounter and wipe their raids all because they had to spam their skills for maximum big numbers. I want to play an MMO. If i wanted to watch big numbers all the time i could just mash buttons on a calculator. How bout some of you go buy a calculator instead and let everyone else play the game.
The Rift Devs have already stated there will be no addons so quit asking for them. L2P
Edit- Download an out of game parser program. Problem solved. Most people wont go to the trouble of running parsers like these and if they do thery are not usually the types to spam DPS numbers into general chat after every single mob. Trash included. Ease of access is the problem.
Out of game DPS parsers are a great middle ground.
Threat meters are nothing but a crutch.
Where a mob is facing and Target of target is all that is necessary. Thats it. Nothing else. Threat meters make no sense in context with the game you are playing. Why should a mob you are fighting be telling everyone that they are 78% angry with you? Players tend to be much more cautious while DPSing when they dont know exactly where they are on the hate list. Give these same players a hate meter and they will try and stay as close to 99% on the hate meter as possible and risk wiping everyone. Happens everytime. These players are not good at the game because they know how to play their characters effectively. They are good at the game because they know how to work the meters effectively. Thats why meters play the game for you.
