Since rogues and rangers both offer things that
Berserkers don't, the decision was made to close membership on that class, rather than fill a raid spot that could be taken by a rogue or ranger. I know some guilds do accept berserkers, but there are also many who do not, and as far as I know, this is the only class with this problem.
You make a good point Xaanru,but i believe what your saying falls into the whole "we didn't want a new class ,we want to be fixed so screw the new class" problem i was speaking of above.
Ofcourse i am not saying that you are one of those folks,but unfortunatly that is what you and many others have been told.
Lets take a look at what people are saying
1.) Berserkers don't do enough DPS
(as far as dps is concerend on high end berserkers,they are right up there with monks,in some cases out damaging them)
2.) Berserkers don't offer any kind of extra Utility in a raid situation.
(Berserkers get warcry diciplines that add haste to the party they are in and increase attack,while this dicipline dosen't offer that bonus to the entire raid all at once,it increases the effectiveness of the dps group they are in a great deal wich increases the effectivness of the raid as a whole)
Now lets look at all the extra things rangers and Rogue's and monks bring to the raid in comparasin.<sorry can't spell >
Monks - DPS , thier extra something they would bring is pulling (if anyone knows anything else please let me know)
Rogue's - DPS , thier extra utility they would bring aside from dps would be - help with corpse runs.(necro's and sk's do this better with thier summoning line)
Ranger's - DPS <though not as much as the other two above>
and thier extra raid benifits are tracking and a buff or two,and possibly some back up healing <wich in turn would lower thier DPS
Looking at this ,I really don't see anything that great that monks,rogue's and rangers offer to the raid that would make them SO much more desirable.
As far as i see it ,the other guys just dont bring that much more to the table that would get the berserker class cut out of a guild.
Again i blame that on class hate,pure and simple.People don't like what they don't understand.
5 years ago everyone thought shadowknights were the biggest punks! ,i know cause my first class was an sk,and as a new player in the game it was tough being told you weren't wanted in a group because "only warriors and maybe pally's are real tanks"
ofcourse 5 years ago there weren't near as many sk's around as there are now.
I think time is repeating itself,it always does,in a year or so from now,maybe even more soon if they really do tweak a couple things,berserkers will be getting the much due respect they deserve.
