While I do understand the plight of being kicked from raids/groups due to not having vent, I do see the reasons for Vent. While you are unable to use your hearing, most people can, and it's another sense that people use to play. Vent makes it easy for a raid to communicate with each other, as people often do not read the raid chat when in the middle of a battle, not to mention the time it takes to type something out is longer then the time it takes to simply say it. They're watching the fight, the mobs, the patrols, etc. Should they watch chat more? Probably, but it's another thing competing for your sight, and people have opted to use another, faster sense to take in snap information.As for you knowing the fight, it's not uncommon for someone to claim they know the fight, but then go running through a Flame Wreath on Aran or cross beams in Netherspite. People don't trust pugs. There's plenty of pug horror stories out there, so you can't blame people for being leery of pugs. You need to earn their trust, and if they aren't going to even let you in the door to try to prove it, then don't bother with it, just move onto a more openminded group. So some guilds and pugs won't let you in due to your disability. It doesn't matter. Find another guild. There are plenty out there.
