I had the exact same thing happen while leveling my Pally recently.I'm proud to say, my very first "Bubble-hearth" was in the middle of the last fight in The Violet hold.This was after I got yelled at for grabbing the mobs that the tank forgot. (Yes I know it isn't my job as healer, but we were over geared for the instance and it didn't seem to be an issue to me at least))

Don't aggro unless you are the tank. I'd probably let you know about that. Especially if you are the healer. I'd do it in a nice way though. But, don't aggro unless you are the tank. Period.

@ChadHe's not referring to initiating a pull, he's talking about picking up stray mobs that the tank didn't notice were already aggro'd.It's always good to snatch those up and bring them to the tank.

Exactly Tyrnas, especially so in VH where they run pretty far away and start wearing down the door.

Wait...They wear down the door? And no, I am not kidding. I thought that achievement was a gimmie, like completing VH you get it. Weird. Learn something new every day. As a tank I occasionally tell a holydin to turn on RF so I can just grab any strays off them. Works like a charm as long as you are quick about it and it isn't a dangerous add situation.
As the healer I feel like I always tank those forgotten mobs without intending to...

VH is the spiritual successor to BC's Black Morass. Both dungeons have dragons or packs of dragons teleporting in around the instance, and then making a beeline (unless aggroed) for a vital objective which they will then attack. In Black Morass it's Medivh; in VH it's the door, so they can get out and rampage through Dalaran. They're some of the few dungeons that actually have a fail condition other than the group wiping; if Medivh/the VH door dies, you lose.

Ok, missed the Violet Hold part. Yeah, gotta pull them in. Strange the tank missed a mob. I've never seen a missed mob. Usually its pretty easy to see them.

This is gonna sound utterly selfish, but I wish we could actually see the consequences of the VH mobs finally breaking through the door. I mean how epic would it be to watch Cyanigosa and her pals rampaging through Dalaran? Just once. Please Blizzard?

The amount of D/Cs would be spectacular.
