Went to UP Heroic yesterday and we nailed it. The tank chain-pulled, told the healer to ask for mana breaks and everything went smooth. We had me (Fury) a Ret, a Moonkin, DK tank and Shaman healer. It was just stupid fast. After the initial nuke, I didn't hit Svala once... she just kept teleporting.. I think my DPS on that fight was about 2.6k because I couldn't hit anything.Had a rocky Old Kindgom.. but everyone hates that. Two left at the start, but the replacements were awesome! Flew through it. The best way to farm OK Random Heroic is to skip bosses 1, 3 and 4. Do the 'rape' boss (excuse me, I forgot his name) and then just straight-line to the Sanity guy.. took us about 10 minutes, Paladin tank, Tree, Fury, Mage and... something else.Pugging isn't bad, in general. But rather than sign and frown at poor gear or skill, veterans of the game shoudl help, advise and encourage. Everyone was a noob once. The only way to improve the masses is to help and guide them. The potential for knowledgable people in giving advice has just skyrocketted with the new LFG.

Hopefully you even showed some rookies the ropes in your pick-up groups.In short, we heard you like pugs. So here's a pug for your pug, so you can pug while you pug. Or something.Hugs,Your friends on the WoW Dev Team."

Not the tentacle guy, the elf that drinks the blood seems to be the one he's talking about.On a slightly unrelated note, I have never understood using the word "rape" to say that something died quickly."Zerg" I understand, same thing with "pwn", "nuke", "slaughter", et cetera. There is death involved. All the terms I listed include death of the opponent as the end result, "rape" doesn't.

Sorry for the confusion, Nadia.I mean the boss on the circle platform that spawns the fire-orbs that chain fry players.I lie down, and he kneels down behind me.... Unless he was trinking blood out of my left ass cheek, I'm pinning this crime as rape! Hehe..(In a side note, I know rape is a serious issue; I mean no offense to anyone - it was merely a casual judgment of a 3D model.)

Honestly, I don't mind helping people if I'm in a charitable mood. But after multiple groups in a row like that, my patience starts to wear thin. Not only that, but then you run into people who are just bad. The people that don't want to listen to advice or help no matter how politely it's offered. The ones who insist that is TRUE, dammit, and you're the one that's a scrub. Those are the folks that get my contempt. Or who just outright ignore you like you're talking to a wall no matter how many times you patiently explain that their terrible play is terrible.Like the fail enhancement shammy in my H Nexus pug yesterday who kept dying for pulling aggro DPSing the wrong mobs, and kept begging for Recount spam (naturally he was dead last, if you'll forgive the pun). The huntard who kept pulling before the tank was ready. And in my sole lowbie pug experience, the BFD run from hell that I ended up having to ret tank, including your greatest hits of nightmare pug companions. There was the rogue that kept jumping around and pulling every goddamn thing in sight and did not listen when I asked him repeatedly to stop, and who could not manage to find his kick button. The frost mage that kept insisting on casting arcane missiles and wondered why she kept going oom. The one warrior that was originally supposed to "tank" despite being fury and naturally could not hold aggro against anyone. The other warrior who wandered off repeatedly and got one shot. And none of this genius melee would listen when I patiently explained that they should be standing behind the mobs, even when I would turn them around they would follow me. The healer was the one saving grace, but in the end I couldn't take it any more and "accidentally" lost my connection. My name's not Mother Theresa.

@jjwalton: I basically agree with all of your points. On Wednesday, I got a group for H FoS and we decided to just plug on through to PoS and eventually HoR. I had done FoS on both normal and Heroic already and knew the encounters, so I was able to guide the two new people through fairly easily, but I hadn't done PoS yet and was clueless. I told them I'd just start clearing to the objective (I was the tank) unless somebody had a better idea. Not a word was spoken. Our healer DCed during the trash clear and we pulled in another who knew the instance and was happy to lead, and we made it through the rest relatively easily. Once we finished PoS, our healer and one other had to leave (Healer was saved to HoR, and one DPS just up and left). We pulled in two from the Finder tool and one of them immediately charged in and wiped us, claiming he'd only ever joined HoR in progress past the first room and just didn't realize what he was doing. Fair enough. We regrouped, the new healer explained the first encounter, and we started it up. While I had managed FoS and PoS without much difficulty, HoR's first encounter was beating me up pretty badly in 200/213/232s. We eventually wiped, and the healer was friendly and honest about my deficiency (especially combined with my inexperience with the encounter, which was a perfectly reasonable point). On the flip side, the idiot who had introduced himself by wiping the group by triggering the event decided to desert with a parting shot: "No wonder you guys had deserters."So yeah, you're going to get some anony-douches and some classy players, but that's the way a random system works. Kudos to those who are patient and reasonable. You guys carry the groups more than the geared folks do.
