Quote of the Day: “Why GearScore is a Terribad Idea” or “Couldn’t Agree With You More WoW.com”

How can you tell a good raider from a bad raider?

GearScore? NO. Often times, people will rely on a numerical gear score, but this is not a good way to judge player quality. Very good players will have low gear scores when starting out, and very bad players who have been persistent or been carried can have very high scores. GearScore¬† is not an indicator of goodness or badness; it’s purely an indication of how much time and luck the person has had on that character.
