Well, I'm a tank, although I'm not a douche like the forum poster, and I've stopped pugging heroics altogether.I don't really care if you have 800 or 900 spell damage. Or if you have 1200 or 1300 healing. But heroics do take out a lot of the margin for error. A total DPS aggro-monkey can stumble through normal instances with a good group around him, but they'll fail at heroics. The last thing I want to do in an heroic is hand-holding some noob who doesn't know what he's doing. Or someone who thinks they're ready for heroics in AH greens just because they got their grubby paws on a key.When deciding to group with someone I try not to look at the gear too much, but more at the person. For heroics, it's gotten so bad that I'll only do it if I already know the entire group. For normal instances, I'm a lot more flexible.Yes, I'm missing out on a lot of badges and other loot, but I play to have fun, and an heroic with a healer who thinks they can cut it in AH greens is *not* my idea of fun.And I hold myself to the same standard. Half my gear was Kara-level epics before I even started doing heroics. I make sure my stuff is reasonably enchanted and gemmed. I bring my best game, and good consumables.And I don't pretend to be Superman.
