Couldn't have said it better myself.

this so much, I seem to hit them all lately and it makes me want to scream.

Too true. I was a fresh 80 in heroic gundrak. My dps was low of course--I barely make it into heroics at all with my gear, but he decides to post the fight with the boss after I was impaled twice (of course my dps is low jerk). And go figure, he's the healer who died halfway through the fight, and I'm the one who popped all my cooldowns to offtank and finish the battle when the real tank died. Yet I'm the bad player. Blah.

This even happens at low levels, my hunter got kicked from a group because i kept pulling things the tank didnt pull with my pet, nobody died, healer had plenty of mana, we were going at a good speed, and plus I said i could handle em without heals anyway. It's insane. Oh yeah and in ST on my mid level healer, a tank had dropped due to lag, and then we got another tank and as soon as he zoned in he pulled 3 groups in the center and complained that I wasn't healing him when i was oom and sleeped. even then he complained that I didnt have my human racial on my action bars for that one situational instance.

@iammurloc-IF you were doing this on purpose I have to say it's more of a politeness thing rather than a "oh we were fine, why kick me because of it?" Because, frankly, when I am running a group, if someone is pulling things on purpose and they aren't the tank, I get annoyed. I think it's rude when you don't let someone in the group do their job. If they're doing their job poorly, then vote kick them. But if you're doing it just because you want to "speed things up," then get some friends together and do a premade.

It's not cause i wanna speed things up, its just that I know my capabilities and it's fun for me. If the group has a problem with it they could at least be polite right? but besides that, for the most part I tried to let the tank do his job, and i pulled something that the tank didnt focus on at the start. Only reason I mention it is usually groups i go with don't have a problem with and we end getting a new dungeon. I just get bored sometimes with the way everything and i mean EVERYTHING has been reduced to tank thunderclaps, consecrates, swipe(I forget the druid AOE), and you just spam AOE

@iammurlocftwRemember you are part of a group, that means working together and respecting the other four to twenty four members viewpoints. Your not wrong for wanting to spice things up, but you do risk the other four members efforts should you happen to screw up. Remember if the tank's not 2nd in the threat then the healer is. Stick with premades if you want to get fancy or try something else. WoW has a few thousand things you can do instead of running instances.

As far as I am concerned, gearscore and the LFD tool have made this game less fun than it was.Not that I am going to quit playing, but I don't do randoms without at least a majority of guidies/guild alliance folks.

Oh yeah... absolutely - the healer part... so it. All the time... man...

Honestly if I'm in a group with someone who pulls intentionally after being asked to stop, they aren't getting any heals from me.My least favorite was when I was tanking my second heroic and the dps kept pulling out of impatience. I told them I wasn't comfortable with that speed, but all of the dps and the healer told me that I should either be able to chain pull the instance or be ok with fighting for pulls with the dps.

@iammurlocftwYou're slowly becoming that huntard that MD pulls everything he cans just because he thinks he's "helping" the group. Well, Flash News! Everyone (specially tanks) hate that. If I'm tanking and I didn't tell you to MD something to me I'd be very annoyed. If I don't pull a mob or a patrol, I have a reason for it.Your work is to DPS, avoid aggro and help with CC. Let the tank do his job.
