One of the weaknesses of WoW is that there is no real instruction manual for how to behave when you're instancing in a group. The roles of tank, healer, and dps have to be figured out either by trial and error or through the instruction of more experienced players.The OP's comments were on-target and completely warranted. I've played with enough incompetent players who don't know their classes to know that nothing helps but a blunt assessment of their skills and clear instructions as to how a bad player might improve. If the player takes the advice and improves, that's great. If not, they go on ignore and I don't group with them again.Since we all pay the same $15/month or so, that means that we are all equally entitled to a fulfilling game experience. That means we get to call out bad players when they are wasting our time. And it means we can help them improve, if they choose to.
