I was totally the narrator yesterday in a random instance. My first time in Oculus and three people saw it was my first time and told me to leave. I said that maybe helping me would be a bit more appropriate. They all left. The healer said she'd try to help, but its pointless if I wasn't better geared. More people joined and the new group wasn't much more helpful. "Get on a dragon and go." Where? ... Apparently the implied answer was "to hell, noob."

I hate people who won't take the 2 seconds necessary to help newer players. It's as simple as "Talk to the gnome there to get a Bronze drake. Then use the item he gives you to summon it. After that, just be careful to follow us, and you'll be fine." Although.... there are always the people who, for whatever reason, can't even follow simple instructions. I was once in a group for regular Oculus, and at least 2 people were new to the instance. (The healer and the tank.) The healer did fine at follow directions and keeping up with the group, but the tank.... He was a bit more... "special." I even flew back to the platform and told him to follow me, making sure to go slowly so he wouldn't lose me... And he started flying around like a drunk duck with a brain tumor. Seriously. I started off flying straight up (simple enough) to try and get level with the platforms, and he followed me straight up perfectly fine at first, but then started to veer like he was pressing spacebar AND strafe, then, despite my telling him to follow me, he flew off into a group of mobs and got killed. He also spent half the instance trying to "lead" us, despite having pointed out that he's never done the place and doesn't know where to go. It was probably one of the longest Oculus runs I've ever been in. Needless to say, when he suggested we queue up for a CoS run together after we'd FINALLY finished Oculus, everyone politely declined. -_-;
