L33T, or "Aficionado of Cute Pwns Hardcore 5-Mans, Wha?"
As a purveyor of all things cute and snuggly and pink, I have often felt stereotyping acutely insofar as "only hardcores can be skilled." A moderate player, I felt relief from constant community pigeon-holing when my family group got Watch Him Die in less than an hour last Saturday and, today, one-shot Volazj's Quick Demise and spent 5 attempts in Occulus with only amber drakes to get both Ruby Void and Emerald Void.
If you will note the announcements pasted into the middle of my Glory of the Hero progress, you'll note that not only did we get Ruby and Emerald, but it was my very first time doing heroic Occulus.
This isn't me bragging as much as just being glad that I have proof that I'm not a scrub, and that moderates and even casuals can be just as skilled as anyone.
