Since I was a week late to actually play the expansion, I managed to make it to the first dungeon without getting ganked. There, I died to Blizzard's idea of fun: the healer (me) running out of mana.

Blizzard's idea of fun: not being able to snore through group content. I realize some find the idea of requiring coordination...in a group...appalling, though.

Actually it was more along the lines of trying to keep up with Mr. "Hey cataclysm i lolfacerolled wotlk so i reforged all my dodge/parry to stam bc stam = more hp amirite?" Tank with the three non-interrupting, seemingly half asleep stooges (read: dps) who like to stand in the fire, break polymorph, and go up and kick Runty in the balls before pulling Beauty.Then getting to the forum/comment section of ______ WoW site and getting L2PLAYKTHX'd by someone such as yourself.I should just play a mage

You're not supposed to kick Runty in the balls? But they're so shiny and round and have a sign that says "kick me" on them. How can I resist the temptation? :'(

I didn't imply you should "l2p", I implied you should coordinate. From the sound of things, you were more content with silently swearing at four other players for outright ignoring responsibilities, while simultaneously blaming Blizzard for the trouble.Even the best healers cannot heal through fail. Nor should they expect to.

I'd like to add that there's a difference between healing through mistakes and healing through complete failure. It's certainly possible to heal through mistakes in Cataclysm dungeons - although more difficult if every single person is at the absolute minimum gear level...and it's more likely that they're *lower* than the minimum.

I'm honestly disheartened to see that people would up-vote someone who has clearly detailed the numerous failings of his "group" (i.e. five players soloing), yet places the blame squarely on Blizzard's shoulders. As if they were the ones who horribly programmed the AI of his four companions.Seriously. This is just sad.
