The three things that irritate me the most when people die:1) If it's a wipe, EVERYONE RUN BACK. The ONLY exception to this is if you are in a dungeon you've never encountered outside of the LFG tool and you have no idea where the dungeon instance is located from the graveyard. I'd prefer you to say "hey, mind if I don't run back? I'm not sure how to get back here for this dungeon." It is significantly easier to rez someone who has not released as I do not need to locate your body, which usually is under 50 creatures, in an invisible hole in the floor, or impossibly crammed into the crease of a corner with only your left pinky toe showing to the world.It is particularly irksome when it is the tank who doesn't run back because their time is too valuable, or they are "teaching us a lesson" or....god only knows what their reasoning is.2) If I'm in combat, I cannot rez you (I don't have any resto druids...yet). If I have you targeted, but am not casting the rez spell, that is probably the reason. Usually because a rogue who caused the bad pull and then vanished is now running around killing rats because he/she is bored. While I can understand that sometime you get grouped with bad healers, at least give the healer a chance to rez you on their own before you start "rez plz"-ing.3) If you are a tank, you need to pay attention to the state of party. If someone is dead, running off to the next set of mobs and pulling before you even have full health is going to get you added to my /ignore list faster than just about any other noob-tank maneuver.

@2 rebirth is a Druid spell not just for restoration

As above, always run back! There are actually quite a lot of dungeons with respawns, patrols (sometimes stealthed) or just a really confusing layout (meaning you can take a wrong turn and run into mobs). On my first priest I was running back through Gnomeregan alone to res and was killed by a patrol. I asked for someone to help me and nobody would, after 15 minutes of arguing the group split up. Nowadays if I see any pats/respawns after zoning back in I tell the others to run back and give them about 20 seconds to release before dropping group. I would be surprised if there are many healers at 80 who think differently.
