Despite the current obsession with achievements and GS, skill is still the most important part of playing your class - my Boomkin only has about 4.7k GS, yet puts out 6.6k Single Target DPS with no buffs, because I've read up about everything from stats to rotations and I apply it in-game. I'm frequently top or top 3 DPS even in 25 mans over people with 5-point-something thousand GS who don't have a clue what they're doing.
Admittedly, that doesn't really help with PUGs, who tend to just say "link achieve 11/12 and 5.2 GS" and ignore you if you try to actually explain anything to them. But you're probably better off in a guild anyway.
90% of people think they are above average.
Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.
