Heroics I hate running? Hell, I hate running all of them at this point. There's no challenge left in instances anymore, and if I get a group with someone in low gear who may make it a challenge, I am too spoiled by gear inflation to appreciate my good luck. I even hate the new instances at this point: FoS is too big for the amount of enemies it has, PoS has too much trash, and HoR is just so difficult it's tedious. There's no excitement in heroics anymore; it's just walk in, blow things up in the fact, get your emblems walk out.I'm not afraid of HoS anymore, but I was before I beat it for the first time. As a tank, there is just so little I can do to make the run better if the healer just can't keep up or people refuse to use their crowd control or let me group up the mobs, and I hate the feeling of powerlessness. You know what? I think I just hate people. That's probably the source of most of my issues with PuGs.

"You know what? I think I just hate people. That's probably the source of most of my issues with PuGs."I couldn't have said it better myself! People can (and will) ruin anything in the game by acting like a jackass, not listening or following orders, or just being plain stupid.

Tanking on my level 60 pally the other night and I had to boot 3 dks in a row that could not seam to understand that if they are not the tank they should not pull, and they should turn off frost presence.

I play as a mage, and I do try to CC mobs in FoS and PoS where a ranged caster mob stands outside the control range of a tank. However what happens most times is some primal urge to smash critters takes over a DPS and they zip off(or send their pet) to smack it and break the CC. I've mostly given up trying to CC, I even tell groups before pulls "See that marked mob, I can CC it and keep a lot of damage off the group until we are ready to kill it." What happens? Stray arrow and hunter pet blow the polymorph and mob proceeds to aggro and kill a group member. /shrugToo often dps classes decide to target a mob other than the tank's focus and think "tank will see what I'm doing and pull it off me". Er, no. Go rez yourself.
