"You may be expected to sheep... but probably not."I'm a warlock. When we're fighting 4 or 5 elementals, I Banish one of them to make the fight easier. No one else seems to understand what that is so they're hacking and slashing and burning away their mana for NOTHING. None of them have realized that it's banished and is invulnerable until it wears off. It's frustrating. The same goes for my lower level mage. Sheep and then someone attacks it and the mana's wasted.Another annoying thing is when another player decides to wander off on his own and then gets pissy because he was killed and wonders why he hasn't been resurrected yet. The answer's usually pretty simple: the idiot pulled about 20 mobs and we've all been ground to dust. We're going to run because we have no choice and the idiot is STILL asking for a rez.

Something to add to this: feel free to sheep a ranged mob in those new instances. If the tank doesnt want it CC'd, guess what: hes going to break it. Us tanks are not going to mind it that much. If you get a really cruddy tank, he might whine. If he does, take note of his whininess and commence to pewpew undisturbed.I was running around on my ret pally the other night for fun, and I kept repenting and HOJ'ing the mage or hunter in Halls of Reflection. The tank was so grateful to me b/c he could ignore it while we focused down the priest or rogue. A few times he didnt want it CC'd, so he broke it. I dont see it as wasting mana when you CC something that looks like its causing your tank trouble, I see it as doing your job as a DPS.

Reminds me of the run I had recently with a DK tank (one of *those* DK tanks). We weren't doing very well, so I proposed making a sheep-pull. He agrees, marks the mob.I sheep the mob.He pulls it with Death Grip.I was laughing all through the wipe.
