Communication is key to downing any raid content. Once you lose communication with the group and have established that the problem is indeed on your end, then it is your responsibility to try and fix that problem or step out. It does not take long to troubleshoot vent problems and the time it takes to pull trash from Halfus to Valiona is more than enough to figure out whether or not you are capable of solving this on your own.

Not sure why this was downvoted, the statement was pretty accurate. If someone on my hockey team kept failing and is always at the wrong position because he isn't communicating I would be pretty mad too.

This totally misses the point.. VT DID announce he was having vent issues, but instead of the raid leader or raid assistant saying 'Hey, let's get him a chance to fix his vent' they plugged on and incurred a health repair bill instead of managing they raid accordingly.. Sure he could have taken some time during trash pulls to fix vent, but if the raid leadership doesn't acknowledge him and he 'appears' to be 'afk' then you can assume what could happen.. It may have turned out that he got downspoken to for being afk instead.. Communication has to be two ways.. Without all parties actively involved, you're just talking to yourself..

Prime, where did it ever say that the RL did not give him a chance to fix it? Heck, where does it even say Vent TRIED to fix it. Even if for some crazy reason the tank was chain pulling trash (something that even my guild working on heroic modes don't do) and immediatly pulling the boss as soon as everyone is inside the doors, VENT could just say 'hey, rez me when you guys get back, I'm trying to fix vent.' Even if this tank was as big a hard ass as vent claims he is (which I'm seriously doubting) there's no way he'd pull with a healer lying on the ground dead.
