@ devilsei Feb 21st 2010 2:39PMActually I believe it was directed towards the cranky tanks who expect DPS to pull 9k in heroic UK so they can keep up their "heroics in 15mins" quota, or other similar situations.-----------------Yup and we know how cranky, sore and hurt a tank gets when the dps doesn't do what they want to the letter. Just this weekend I ran into a tank who not only put me down for the dps I did on my ALT, but decided to "educate" me by telling me to use the skills I was already using before ranting that he was "carrying me." Oh yeah, I intentionally went in thinking "that Jackass from Skywall is going to be here and he'll carry me so I can just sit back and do nothing."(note sarcasm) Gah, some people really are clueless. I work hard on my alt, I'm trying to gear her up as best as I can in the instances that my gear frame allows me to be in, but these over geared tanks come in and just think the heroics are their playgrounds only. Have you ever tried to burn down a mob that the overgeared players kill faster than you can? How in the hell can you match their dps and be considered viable when they don't give you a chance to even prove yourself.Sad thing is, I had done several instances prior to that one and no one had an issue with my dps. In fact each instance I did was completed and finished in good time. I was even in an instance where I was better geared than the tank and I didn't pull threat, I did my job and even got some upgrades out of it too. As well, let me point out, before I was forced to leave the instance the tank was bitching me in, we had downed the first boss in Occ without any difficulty AT ALL. Finally this was the instance I wanted to go to, to learn it and have some fun in, but I was made to feel so crappy that I just left it. I'm not going to stand around and be insulted and put down by some guy with no balls who thinks he can get off by ranting and raving how useless I was when 1. No one died 2. The boss went down pretty quickly 3. We were progressing pretty quickly It's pretty difficult to keep up with some people when they are geared to the roof and are coming into the heroics just for badges and rush through the content because they've done it so many times before. Of all the pugs I did that day I never felt so abused and hurt then I did with that jerk from Skywall.
