Holy Nova spam isn't always a bad idea just don't be retarded about it. I use it every time i do onyxia. I put my shields on everyone who needs them and then go to town till they burst through the shield. I also do it a ton in 5 mans because in t9 gear most 5 man trash can't burn through a power word shield before they die. I also psychic scream in Violet Hold for no good reason. Mostly because it's harmless and makes the boring trash packs a little less boring.

Fearing trash in violet hold is in fact not harmless, it is very annoying for melee dps and tanks and actually quite stupid. Realize you are in a group and not on your own and though it may make the instance more interesting for you it probably bugs other people to no end.

Apparently you've never tanked. Tossing out a scream in VH is hell for a tank. It screws up their positioning, probably right as they're lining up a shockwave. It sends mobs out of consecrate range. It sends caster mobs back to casting range, and out of range of interrupts, and can put them out beyond the 130% aggro range, meaning that they will swap to a high threat ranged instead of the tank.

It wouldn't be a problem if they switch to a lock, mage or hunter i can heal through them just as easily as the tank. That's why a 3k sp disc priest rocks so hard in 5 mans provided everyone's dps is rocking to a level that i'd even bother healing you through the daily then it really doesnt matter if you get aggro. I guess it's worth pointing out that i only do the daily with people from my guild and a select group of people. Having three healers geared for heroic toc (priest, pally shaman) gives me a lot of control over who i join.

@Andrew Martin"I also psychic scream in Violet Hold for no good reason.

Not all of us get 30 odd yards of DPS room - I have to stand next to it and turning 'boring' trash into 'annoying' trash isn't a step up at all.

I guess the best response here is... behaving badly in a group is bad... regardless of who the players are, whether they deal with you or not.It annoys everyone around you, whether they call you out on it or not.

Screaming in the middle of trash also makes it last a lot longer because you slow down DPS. GG.

Look at the bright side, folks... this guy only runs with guildies so he's not our problem. One of our druids used to have an annoying habit of using that annoying (but possibly useful in the right cicumstances) ability that blows the mobs backwards (typhoon, maybe?) all the time. A few well chosen words of advice solved that problem.
