Biggest frustrations since WotLK: watching the same raiders make the same mistakes week in week out (examples: Heigan dance without dying, not making the jump on Thaddius even when they have Levitate/Slowfall!), yet being unable to replace them because they DO sign up for raids, they DO bring pots and buffs, they ARE nice and friendly people and you can't really get angry with them without feeling like a massive fool engulfed in a nerdrage. They're just.. noobs. *grinds teeth*PvP is also a source of immense frustration to me - haven't done it since WotLK came out, and I'm ignoring all PvP achievements. Can't stand the emote spam, can't stand bg chat (I play Alliance), can't stand dying unless I remember to time my abilities perfectly (I play a healer) - and even if I do time my abilities perfectly I still die 99% of the time.Achievements and quests that depend on randomness and timing (Rapid Defense I hate you!) are also good at making my blood boil.Oh and I forgot to mention retarded corpseruns (graveyard at the golem quarry in HF is at the BOTTOM of the hill, so if you die during the quest you're pretty much fubar).

I can relate to this. Like many, Immortal is the only achievement my guild needs out of both 10 and 25 man raiding. However, week in, week out, at least one person screws it up.It's a group achievement, so it's perhaps not the best way to think about it, but quite frankly I haven't *caused* a death in H-Naxx since... well, ever. Don't get me wrong, I have been the first to die, but it wasn't actually a result of something I did (the time I was first to die was on 4H; we were just about to kill Zeliek when another member ran between me and someone else, which 'bridged the gap' for Holy Wrath to chain onto me and one shot me). But it's getting increasingly frustrating not getting that achievement when quite frankly, I know that if it were a raid group of 25 'mes' I would have gotten it by now. Even if something silly like last night occurs (priest dies in 1 sec when an MC'd rogue 2 shots her (critting both times), across a span of ~3 months you aren't going to have things like that happen every week - human failure causes the rest of the deaths.It's just that in terms of actually clearing content we're not bad. We were even around world ~150 to get Sarth3D (10). But yeah... sometimes I wish I could just 25-box effectively and get that darn achievement.
