I was a feral tank, geared well enough for 25mans. Finding a group was a piece of cake. I used to run a lot of PuGs, lots of people pointed out I was the best tank they have ever played with. Now I'm specd resto, cause I want to do arenas but arena as feral with 300+ latency is like learning how to juggle with chainsaws. Since I play only few hours a day, the constant respecing isn't really my thing the 50g isn't the problem, I just hate rearranging my UI every time I respec (it takes a good 15-20 minutes to get to the only druid trainer and shoving macros into correct slots etc, there isnt enough space to carry all sets of gear around, so I have to go to the bank and place and withdraw the gear) and the switching between full tank and healer roles is frustrating too. So on the topic, what I hated in PuGs:One of the most hated things is when I run into people, who don't have the key to the heroic we are about to do and only when everyone are summoned and ready to go, they are like "oh shit, I can't get in". When not in group farm the reputation. Make sure you have the heroic key! Up to some time I was willing to wait for the person to go buy the key, lately I just started kicking them and getting replacement.I also don't like when some hunters don't know how to execute what they are asked to do, don't know how to kite, don't follow the kill order (altho I always mark and explain), try to win DPS race and forget to CC, haven't learned their abilities and think they know better than that. I met a hunter, who did not train Feign Death and said he did not need that.I have nothing against a hunter class, few good players with hunter toons that I know are godly, they know their abilities and adapt quickly to the situation changes. Their keep their MD ready, their DPS is top notch, they can kite forever and they never let their CC go to one shot a healer and they do all that with great attitude.So to sum up - you need to know your class well, read up on it, you need to play well but don't be overconfident. Being modest and playing well will quickly raise your reputation through the roof. If you play well and act like an a-hole, some people will /ignore you nomatter how good you are.Push for high DPS, but make sure you know that proper CC and not pulling aggro > DPS.
