First instance I ever entered with my very first character, I was asked to join a group in which the members already knew each other. I had no clue what I was doing -- I even thought I was supposed to "need" items because I could sell them, and I DID need money! I didn't want to "greed" things because I didn't want to label myself as greedy. Ahh, what did I know? Instead of explaining what I'd done wrong even after I told them it was my first instance, the group tore me apart verbally until I had enough and left the party deep in the instance -- which only enraged them further, and they kept up the excoriation in whisper. That was when I learned to use the "ignore" function. I refused to run another instance for thirty levels, and even then I just passed on everything. Even two years later I prefer to solo whenever I can.

I think I played with them! No fun for me either, and admittedly, I was that "ignorant" too.

Your story is eerily close to mine CavalierX. My problem is that I'm of a nervous disposition and so grouping and messing up someone else's time is something that actually gets me genuinely anxious. I had a bad experience in one of my early grouping experiences and I just stopped grouping and started soloing everything. It changed my play experience so completely that I rerolled a Hunter just so I wouldnt have to rely on grouping!That event happened 3 years ago give or take and I only did my first ever instance outside Deadmines this week. I by chance befriended player, got into his guild and his guildies dragged me kicking and screaming to my first instance in 3 years (Heroic HoL) and it was a complete blast. I was so happy to finally feel like I was playing the game I had always wanted to play and as a result I'm having the most fun I've ever had in this game.Now the reason I'm going on about my story is because I felt we had a similiar experience and I had the same reaction as you more or less.I'm urging you man, don't let a random group of nasty people dictate the game you play, if you want to start grouping go for it because it's your money and it's your time.Happy Gaming man :)
