I loathe pugging dungeons and I don't have many friends who play (the few who do play can't level a single character past 58 without having to reroll).I will do it on occasion if I NEED rep or gear, but I generally stick to BGs.

Is it just me or has the quality of the average PUG dropped considerably since I started playing 2 years ago. I rolled a new toon for the first time in a while last week and I've had a hell of a time doing low level dungeons because people either don't know how to play their class or don't now how to participate in a group properly.Back when I started playing it seemed my PUGs were always at least somewhat organized and everyone knew their place in the group. I enjoy running instances for the sake of running them. It's a little disappointing to me when I have to resort to a guildmate running me through with one of their 70s. Sure I get my loot and quests quicker, but it takes all the fun out of it.

Uh last time I ran SL we had a Pally who repeatedly kept asking how he should tank. I wasn't sure if he was just being a dick or he bought his toon or what.

Or he'd leveled Ret or Holy and only just switched to Prot because people kept insisting that "PALYS R TANKS NOOB", or he'd been out of the game for a while and was having trouble getting back into his groove, or he was new to the instance and wasn't sure how to handle the pulls...You'll do a lot better PUGging if you remember that there are real, live people on the other end of those characters, instead of easily-dismissed caricatures.

It's fine if you don't know how to tank...but don't start pulling 5+ mobs at a time and continue doing it after being told it isn't a good idea...especially when healers are still drinking :)
