another thing that show the difference between a skilled player and a average one is are they willing to learn and change if shown a better way. Or willing to change spells or tact depending on raids. good example of this if you got 4 mages in a guild and 3 are topping pars ever raid but the last one is never making the top 10 because he or she is set in their ways and even though the other mages are trying to help won't change how they play or such(different spells/rotation of aa/etc). or depending on the raid being willing to change your spell set or what you do to fit the raid. People who are one trick players who do the same thing on ever raid in my mind are not skilled players. A skilled player has to be ready to change up how and what they do depending on the raid at hand. good example. I play a necro. my normal lineup dose not include a lifetap dd. but when doing eok t3.2(the dragon raid). I will load one to help keep myself up dealing with the 100k a tick dot in case my group healer gets it as well and can't heal cause they have to run to cure it as or get silenced. A dead necro dose 0 dps.
