My fiancee and I were doing a H Gundrak with a bunch of random people a few weeks or so ago (he was tanking, I was dps-ing). We were pretty fresh 80s, with bad gear scores and everything, but it's not like we don't know the instances (we're severe altoholics) or know our roles (this is his... third? tank). Usually one of the first things we do is look at the GS of people around us, so we can have an idea of what we're in for. We noticed that the GS of the priest healer was something like 5.5k or higher, with some fancy title, so we expected that it would be fine, even if our DPS was lacking a tad.First thing Mr. Healer does is flash heal me (the Ret. Pally) for a while, while Pally Tank Fiancee pulls. I thought this was a little weird, but he kept on targetting me while the tank was pulling. I dropped a few Holy Lights on him hoping that the healer would notice but it still took a while before he started healing the tank. We pulled the boss, heals went fine, nobody died, nobody had any mobs on them, it was excellent. We start pulling the next room, and heals start to get sporadic again. Then, out of nowhere, the healer starts ranting about my hubby's low GS and how he sucks as a tank because of it. It continues on til the next boss, and the healer complains about how after the boss switches phases from stone construct to elementaly water monster, it immediately starts heading to him. We tried to explain the mechanics of the fight, but he wasn't listening, and just continued to insult everyone in the group for being bads, telling them to stop being terribad and get gear, learn to so-and-so and whatever.After the boss was down I told hubbs not to jump down. Warned in /p that the tank was not coming across the water with the group, and that we were going to be kicking the priest for being an elitist asshat. We had a 4 minute cooldown on vote kicking, but that was no problem. The other dps in the group were fine with it. The priest got cranky and started pulling those big troll mobs, thinking he was so geared he could pull it off himself. Hunter feigned death, rogue vanished, leaving the priest to die in his stupidity all alone. He was pissed, but had no one to rez him, so his loss. After the cd was up, we kicked him, and got a healer that was more around our GS, and ended up running a few more heroics together after that.
