"Pugs can be stupid" is not exactly a newsflash.I've gotten so cynical about Pugs, I'll put people on /ignore if they whisper me "Can u heal naxx10? Just need heals and g2g."

I think its fun to get a whisper "can you tank?" or "can you heal?" when you aren't even specced that way. I'll be running around Dalaran and someone will ask me if I want to come tank a boss in Naxxramas. I'm a ret paladin. People only give me ret gear. I can't just pop epic tanking gear out of thin air.

What chaps me is the word "quick". LF1M heals for quick H GDK run. As a healer "quick" is generally defined "under-geared dps with tank friend (below 535 defense) looking for over-geared healer to carry group QUICKLY through heroic" -- at least in my experience.I even had one guy tell me he could "keep threat like it was his job". Well actually, as the tank, it IS your job. When I pressed the issue of whether he had 535 defense he said "I'm not prot spec". I dropped group immediately after that. Wearing plate does NOT make you a tank.My other favorite pet peeve is when you see "LF2M tank and heals for quick heroic". That one gets me every time. As a healer I stay as far away from those pugs as possible. Granted it's just my experience, but these groups tend to be terribad.This is all a round-about way of saying that I'm cynical about pugs, too. I guess I got a little wordy. Sorry.

The one that always gets me is 'LF Healer AN H at LAST BOSS!' I've done it a few times just 'cause I wanted that last badge for some item, and everytime it's some tank who doesn't run away from the pound and gets 90% of his health knocked out of him.I've made it a point to ask why somebody left and how they wiped when I get asked to help out in a heroic with a few bosses down.
