..."However, if as a tank you pull that "gogogo" shite, skipping bosses and pulling three groups of mobs at a time, I take that as your special way of saying "go right ahead, melt face with zeal and abandon"...The problem is, most of the time the DPS'ers are the ones that put that pressure on the tank to go faster.Being a tank myself, I hate when some dps says "pull moar groups lol gogogo". It's getting to the point that I'm considering to quit tanking in heroics, despite I won't have insta-groups any longer.

Gotta agree with you on this one - I'm a DPS myself, but I hate seeing *anyone* say "gogogogo", makes me want to sit down and offer the entire party strudel just to see the rusher froth at the mouth. -_- If I was tanking, I'd tell them that I wasn't in a rush, and that if they didn't like it they could leave and wait 10-20 minutes for a group that might be faster. Oi.

Can't stand the gogogo nonsense myself and my main is dps. It's become a guild in-joke now though when we are chaining hc's together with alts. I have a tank and healer running as dps screaming gogogo at me most runs I do as a tank now. Very funny in that situation so seconding Eternauta's comment.To all the impatient dps though, in a pug group with me tanking you are likely to be the first to die and god help you if I have one of my guilds hunters with me cos he will MD your ass to my hearts content.

I put pressure on the tank to move faster, and I'm the healer. I just don't care who you are or how long you've been a tank, but if you're going to do safe, single pulls, then you're only being kept up with a single Renew. That's boring. Move your ass and make me spend mana on healing, or you're going to see what kind of mayhem a bored priest can cause. Did you know that our fear bomb only has a 30 second cooldown?Not only that, but for some reason I have this uncanny ability to be running a heroic just as they're resetting.

"Come on tank, gogogogo""I pull at my speed. You want your badges, as do I. Guess what, my queue time is 10 seconds on average, you want to spend another 20 minutes waiting for a tank while I get right in less than 15? No? shut it."

Yeah, as a hunter, the tanks expect me to use Misdirect on every pull. I guess they don't understand that it has a cooldown, and when they pull faster than the CD, it's their own fault if my Volley causes some aggro issues. If they are pulling that fast, then I assume they can hold aggro.I do my part by using MD and FD to lose aggro, but if you are pulling faster than the speed of light, there's only so much I can do.Of course, I could just stop attacking, which would cause the mobs to live longer, which would cause the healer to work harder. And you might die.So, if you are going to pull the whole instance at once, you better be able to handle the aggro

Hilarious. Yep, "gogogo" is the new way of saying "I'm a selfish wonk and don't care a rat's a** about you or this group". Been seeing a lot of that with the randoms. And like you, Eternauta, it has made me far less likely to tank a random. Wonder why you're seeing longer queues? I think I'm not the only tank tired of seeing this crap and just putting together a group instead of jumping into a running random suits me just fine. What goes around comes around, gogoers. Enjoy your wait. :PTell me to "gogogo" and I'll tell you to say it politely or don't say it. And if you start doing pulls because you want me to go faster, expect to do your own tanking. I bring my own heals and she loves watching these people die as much as I do.
