I feel your pain as a fellow DK that refuses to queue for another random. My only 80 is my first toon ever, a night elf druid (balance/resto duel) that I leveled pretty much solo with very few dungeon runs when friends were available (pre-dungeon finder). Now I run the lowbie dungeons doing rep quests, but thats aside from the point. I've tried dungeon finder, but after 2 failed attempts at healing because I was the one dying, I refuse to try again there too unless I manage to find myself better gear.. because I'm told gear score matters. Whatev.I rolled a tauren druid (resto) with a friend of mine and she queued us in the dungeon finder almost every time we met to play. We'd quest as we waited for groups. I thought this was great. Getting through the dungeons was fun, quests got done, I thought it would be nice to try it on my other toons. So, I started playing my abandoned blood elf mage till she reached the level to queue for dungeons. I met some great people, groups are hit or miss, but generally not bad. Its fun, I still queue on that toon when I play.So, I decide to attempt a dungeon with my DK. She is level 70, but I think at the time was about 68-69. I queued as damage because I didn't want the responsibility of being a tank with my overall general inexperience with dungeons. I know that Dks are usually tanks, especially blood DKs, but I didn't want to drag a group down by not knowing what to do. So I wait (what seems like forever) in queue and finally get into a group. I say hello, they say hello and I thought all would be fine. We go along killing a couple mobs, no one died, no aggro was taken, it all seemed just fine. Out of no where the group leader says 'can you please leave'. I wasn't addressed by name, but I knew she meant me. I didn't ask why, and I guess I didn't leave or respond fast enough when she addressed me by name and in a second line added 'no one wants you here'. Now, none of the other members had said a word (doesn't mean they weren't whispering or talking on vent or something). Not wanting to cause issue, I just said sure. As I was teleporting out, I saw that someone in the group had offered to pay me 10 gold to leave. I had clicked the name before the teleport took me out to say no one had to pay me, but being on a different realm once I was out of the party I couldn't say anything to them. I was so mad. I didn't understand what made her ask me to leave because there were no problems through at least 3 mobs. I was doing my part, but not taking aggro from the tank or causing problems for the healer. Bloods have enough self heal that I can't see how that would be an issue. I could see if I was hurting the group, but again, Whatev. I still play my DK, but I won't queue again.With your new character, try it out from the lowest level it lets you in, I think 15 or so. There really are some good groups and helpful people that will give you tips. I know its discouraging when you're new and rather than experienced players being helpful they get mad because you dare to be new and not an expert. But there are some nice ones out there. I try to be helpful to lower levels I see around if they're in trouble. Don't give up! :)
