Haha.WoW 101------------------------------Session 1: Avoiding AE Damage -- "Don't stand in the &*@%ing fire!!! /facepalm"Session 2: Proper Gearing -- "Not bringing a knife to a gun fight."Session 3: Final.**Extra Credit: 3 man the Safety Dance achievement on heroic mode.I understand people get hit by AE damage sometimes. It happens to everyone sometimes. However, when people are constantly standing in the fire, locust swarm, or any other AE and forcing your healers to go OOM: they're a problem in your raid. They need to be talked to, helped out, or booted. I guess the solution depends on your guilds 'hardcore' mentality :-)

I agree with scott. Shit happens. Hell last night I died in a fissure on heroic KT. First time that ever happened to me, but it does happen and I try to be understanding when it happens to others. But repeatedly dying by "standing in the fire" makes you a liability to the entire raid. When you have 6 dps die on the first polarity switch during Heroic Thad, all you can do is /facepalm.We have taken to using addons that call people out. For example, we have one that announces in raid fissure and flame wall fails for Sarth. Some guild members aren't to happy with being called out, but hey, if that's what it takes to improve our progress as a guild we will continue on with it.
