I just left a group on my warlock where the tank was running so fast even my lifetap couldn't keep me in mana. After repeated requests to stop for mana I finally said, "i'm gonna sit and drink and tank if you don't like it you can kiss my ass."His reply? "I dont' need to wait for dps."And you know what? He was right. As a dps I'm disposable. And it kind of sucks. So anyway I just said, 'fuck you then" and dropped group. But it left a sour taste in my mouth.It's things like this that prompted my previous comment. The tool seems to bring out the worst in people. Yes, sometimes it brings out the best, but that's so rare it's actually noticeable. It shouldn't be like that.

See, in this situation, I just don't worry about it. Unless you're in an instance where you have to be by the tank in order to survive I just drink if I have to and then catch up. If you get scolded, just tell them you need mana.

Don't take so much offense to it. He didn't say "I don't need dps" he said "I don't need to WAIT for dps."It's no problem for you to sit and drink while he's pulling and gaining aggro, then you can just get up and start DPSing when you're ready! It's a matter of time efficiency, not a matter of your... uh.. Disposability? The group won't wipe just because a warlock was drinking instead of DPSing for the first few seconds of a pull.But your point remains. You got in a huff over it and left. The group won't care, they'll click a button and you will be instantly replaced. You are the one who lost out just because you got your dander up and found offense in something harmless.

yeh, tanks deliberately try to get the jump on dps in the aggro stakes so dont take it personally. Especially if the tank is undergeared comparatively. A headstart on aggro means less hassles for everyone.

Of course you'll all right. I just didn't see it in the heat of the situation. Which is a good lesson for all of us, I guess.
