Another raider is getting all huffy about the use of the same models for arena and tiered sets. Arena gear deprives them of the recognition they deserve for their great accomplishments in the raiding space.
The following bears saying from time to time:
Dear fellow gamer,
You are playing a MMOG. Your accomplishments are something you do for your own sake, for your own enjoyment and for your own pleasure. And yes, sometimes it will garner you some recognition of other players.
You want to be admired for what you did? Log off. Go outside. Start changing the lives of people around you. Feed the hungry. Cure the sick. Tend to the lonely, the outcasts, the misfits. Exchange a helping hand where it is needed. Unify the theory of relativity and the quantic space. Invent a cheap and clean source of energy. Become a recognized adventurer. Help end conflicts, whether it is in your neighborhood or abroad. Create artwork which questions and soothes the mind. Become a figure of hope for people looking up to you, because you keep selflessly striving, on whatever social scale most fit to your means and talents, to better mankind or improve the fate of your peers, in small ways or big ways.
Respect and admiration is won in the real world. In the grand scheme of things, killing Illidan (or having 2600 arena ratings) means nothing at all. You changed nobody’s life. In the long run, you will just make yourself miserable because you are feeding your misplaced sense of entitlement by thinking otherwise.
