All the problems with various players in Heroics is why I am power-leveling a worgen mage instead of smashing things with my DK tank.Yes I can insta-queue Heroics as a tank, but I refuse to, making your wait times longer until you figure out what CC means and wait for the Tank to start a pull instead of your pet/minion.

Also, please, get some fear-breaking trinket (even if its supposed to be for PvP). OR learn what your "interrupt" spells are.It's not the Tank's fault you ran off into a mob that was previoudly ignoring you because you were fear'd with no way to break (or prevent) it.

So as a healer with no interrupts its my fault that the tank did not pull the group away when there was a mob that Fears? Good to know!

I think you're embracing the same attitude they're trying to discourage in here. Dungeons are becoming more like mini-raids, more so than in BC, and that means more than just 'smashing through' stuff.Also the fact that you 'power level' gives me, personally, the impression you'd rather get to 85 quickly without learning effectively your class through practice than to have fun doing it, so you can get into dungeons quickly.

Refusing to tank/heal "until people learn to DPS" is like taking away someone's bike until they learn to ride. No one learns to be a better player in dungeons by sitting in a queue.I'm not arguing with your ultimate decision not to tank -- if you'd rather be a mage, go be a mage. But as a tank, as said elsewhere, this attitude makes you part of the problem.

and you could always help them in game instead of on here. you certainly dont seem the type to drop group right after something like that happens. ;)

I've got this radical, way-out-there idea. No, don't leave, hear me out, it might be worth it. Here goes:If you need someone to CC, or not pull, or do something so things don't get screwed up... TELL THEM. I doubt you're doing PUGs with telepaths, and nobody instinctively knows what to do in every dungeon situation. It's sad to see that this article's entire point has been lost on you.Now, if you try to tell someone that you need them to CC a mob or to stop pulling, and they say something like "STFU AND TANK NOOB", then yeah, they're an ass and they deserve to be kicked into the world's longest queue. But if you get mad at people for not doing what you couldn't even be bothered to tell them? Then *you* are just as much part of the problem as they are.

One word: Patience.I'm actually leveling a Tankadin. I'm learning the class, learning the spec, and learning the role. So, I go slower, I am more conservative with my pulls, but I'm also trying desperately not to screw something up.What I don't appreciate is some random DPSer telling me to "pick things up". Especially after I point out the above. A little patience and encouragement go a long way, and frankly, we need tanks, so you shouldn't be greifing on them at all, it will just cause there to be fewer tanks, which is a problem for everyone. Oh, and stop linking Recount stats to party chat. It just shows that you're a complete jerk. No one links Recount when they're at the bottom.
