@Theresa: I'm sorry for the deluge of spam to your inbox with replies to your post that have nothing to do with what you said.@Stella: I understand that you're targeting a specific group of people but you begin to enter the realm of "It's their $15 per month." And it's true. What if a person likes running dungeons? What if they prefer to PvP? Who are you or I or anyone else to say that they're a good or bad person? Or a good or bad player?To me, as someone whose main is a hunter, tanking mystifies me. I think it would be easier for me to learn how to tank early on when there's only a couple of buttons I need to worry about, rather than a slew of rotations and abilities coming at me like a howler monkey. And practice makes perfect. I'm not going to learn successful tanking just tanking one instance. So I go again. And again. And again.Even in the brave new world (of warcraft) where multiple servers can be joined together for pug dungeons, my server still tars and feathers proven ninjas. My guild fosters the social aspects of the game rather than just focusing on progression and loot. Because we're here to have fun in a game. Because life is too short to bring strife and drama into a recreational activity. We joke about how we used to slog through forty whole levels before getting a piddly little mount that the Tortoise puts to shame-- and we LIKED it! Goshdurned kids got it so easy these days, right? I don't know you, your guild or even your server. But believe me when I tell you that the people you're referring to are actually the exceptions to the rule, not the ruling majority. "Most people" are actually pretty nice, not the lazy, self-absorbed, entitled children you paint them to be. I apologize if I'm wrong in my interpretation of your posts.Again-- perhaps you bumped into a lot of bad people in pugs (which is why I stay away from pugging if I can; and if I do pug, I rather go with people on my server so that if I do meet someone nice, I don't have too much trouble finding them!) or recent recruits to your guild were spoiled little prats who didn't know what they were doing or saying. Sometimes people do suck.And if the game can be a solo-player endeavor, as you claim it to be, then they have to wait for the next expansion for things. In my experience, the people I'm not terribly fond of are usually the ones screaming, "GOGOGO!", the people who can't keep their pants on and have to have stuff NOW. But even so, those same people aren't going to be soloing Deathwing when his content patch hits. They're going to have to learn to play nice with everyone else in order to get what they want. @Neiren: It IS a feat of strength since it is no longer available! It's like being exalted with The Zandalari now in Cata or doing/getting something super rare. The warbear achievement is here on Wowhead: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=430But I think the OP may have been saying that getting the bear and being able to do ZA in that set amount of time "back in the day" should have been an achievement had achievements been implemented then :)
