I’ll admit that there’s a shade of vanity that prompts me to bust out my best and most noticeable skills whenever I’m in an MMO group setting. This was most prevalent back in my City of Heroes days, when I’d be beyond giddy to use that super amazing skill (with a super-long cooldown) in the hopes of impressing everyone as if I had invented it myself.
There’s just something satisfying about busting out an ability that makes you look and perform like a rock star, am I right? There’s a degree of “look at me!” while you’re saving the team or punting the boss into oblivion.
