Here is your problem: You let this person not talk on vent for a long time before. So what ever actions you take now if it excludes them because of it is kind of wrong. From your line of questioning it leads me to believe that was the major reason why you canned them. You should have led off with- too many people were dying and you were running out of mana. or "you're performance is not good enough." I'm sure there are quite a few good raiders who don't talk in vent. In actuality only 1-2 people should be talking. Everyone else should be following instructions. So good luck.

Its disappointing to see that voice communication is considered so important. Gelvons The PuG are downing raid bosses and have a policy against voice communications:http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/guild/agamaggan/the%20pug/Voice is not required if you take the time to know the fight or your class. Which if just you placing the burden on the raid leader and leading to burn out issues.

@Noyou: Most of the people in my guild talk on vent, except maybe 2 people. It's a lot easier to tell the raid you can't interrupt the next cast instead of writing it. The people in the raid don't need to watch the chat either.The "only tanks and healers talk" rule is stupid imo. People just don't need to comment everything and it will be alright.

My problem is having a mic, a small house and a sleeping child. So if I talk too much or too loudly, I then have to go AFK to resettle my child and placate my partner who is also woken by said child. Resulting in grumbling from fellow raiders, but not too much as we're quite a mature guild many of whom are parents who understand.

@NextWeekThePuG doesn't use Vent/voice because Gevlon feels that its mostly use to make up for the fact that people don't learn fights. This proves that you CAN be successful without vent, but it doesn't prove that its optimal. Just like any tool, Vent is wonderful if used properly. If a guild is struggling through content then I think they should use every aid they can. In this particular case lack of a mic doesn't even really seem like the biggest problem this healer has. She doesn't want to take the time/gold to enchant her gear, or learn the fight. Just watching a strat video should answer 50% of the questions about the fight. I think it all boils down to, if you have some sort of restriction ( no voice chat, etc.. ) then you have to work harder at other aspects of your play/gear to make up for it, it doesn't give you an excuse to be bad.
