A DPS shouldn't help with cleansing?

I mean it's not wrong, but why would you say I have no progess experience when I killed every killable boss this patch? I bet you didn't.

I didn't. I said you don't know the difference between farming Nefra and progression raiding.

This thread is about nefra farms and cleansing. What progression raiders do and what is expected from us is different from what you'd expect from a pug group. Pugs struggle with something that makes a progression raider fall asleep - which I literally have done on a really long Nefra farming evening. No joke.

It obviously is? But you said I don't understand progression raiding, the cleanse is pretty what ever to me.

Sure they can cleanse, and sure you can bring a merc. But the question is SHOULD a DPS cleanse other people to which the answer is simply no. You are not helping, you aren't doing any carry strats the impact of this cleanse is an actual 0 with you losing 1 GCD, to be fair most people lose more than 1 GCD anyway since they are clickers. So it doesn't even matter.

Although the healers thanked me, one of the tanks flat out told me not to cleanse any of the DPS and that the healers needed to learn their classes better. I said that's fine but I just want to get the boss done and don't mind throwing an extra cleanse (it's not like Nefra has a tight enrage window). The tank just wouldn't have it. After going back and forth for a few minutes on it the tank typed L2P and then rage quit.

Is it really that bad to throw an extra cleanse here and there to help the group out?
The tank was an idiot. NiM Nefra is not a DPS check in the slightest. Its a heals and threat check. If you can help the healers it moves the group more towards the end.
Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later that debt is paid.
