not once have i said that you can't clear content with a dps knight. The only thing i said is a dps knight cannot out dps a ranger/sorc/rogue(and almost fairly sure cant out dps assassin/wizard).
Clearly, SonicTMP is able to - using whatever DPS he can muster - successfully clear the content rolling with a DPS Knight. Perhaps, mathematically and practically speaking, Knights make poor DPS compared to a dedicated DPS class.
Continually ranting about how Knights can't do it when we have an obvious example of someone being able to fill the role is idiotic. Not only that, but as a member of the community, it is an extremely toxic, unfriendly behavior that is just unnecessary.
I have played many roles in MMOs where the class and spec I was using were deemed unworthy (SWTOR: Inflitration shadow for pve, WoW: Ret Paladin any time since launch; as examples) and yet I have thrived and continued to complete content. It is obvious to me that many of the DPS roles in this game fall prey to the "epeen" standards of WoW: Potential highest DPS is highest dps, even if the margin is barely tangible due to one of a dozen acceptable reasons or even non-existent.
This game is literally brand knew for iRO and if the community continues to remain toxic to people trying new and different things because they seem like bad ideas... it is going to ruin itself. Stop being so ridiculously self important and if you don't like the idea of something, don't be a child about it. In fact, if you are a child, remember what your parents should be telling you: Treat others how you would like to be treated.
Well done on clearing content with a Knight DPS. Glad to see there is potential there. I have yet to dedicate the time to reach level 50 to gear up and raid (and I am a Knight tank anyway!), but I am grateful someone in the community was able to provide tangible proof that it isn't folly to try.
again look at every post i made, only thing you'll find me saying is knight dps is compared to actual dps classes dps. which is TRUE.
