After a massive crapstorm of hell, I was informed that using a single energy type was far more effective. And I changed my build, did more damage, learned, and as such, now I do quite a bit more damage.

But until they start real end-game content, don't expect them to learn, and only expect them to change if they want to learn. For the most part, most rainbow boats and skittlescorts tend to think that their builds work, again because regalar PvE on normal difficulty is a faceroll.
what they truly lack is skill. I could go skittle in my aventine, and still outdps most "pro" escort captains (I hadnt tried, but I am pretty sure I wouldnt lose more than 2k dps).

also the real problem is, that they do not listen, nor they want to learn how these things work. so in the end if you want a sure pug, just bring high dps, and carry the team. with 6k dps one can pretty much carry a team. sadly most barely scratch that :S
