@Grak:"Take a look at the activity log on your recount sometime, see who is *always* at the top, who is the most active, who has to be focused 100% of the time from the start of the dungeon to the end; the tank."Let me tell you, there is so much fail in that statement that I can barely contain myself!First, if your tank is leading DPS, you have three SUCK dps. You run a heroic with me, you won't be CLOSE to tops in DPS, in fact, I'll have you beat in DPS by SEVERAL THOUSAND!Second, what do you have to focus on? DON'T STAND IN FIRE, MAKE SURE THE BOSS HITS MEI could get a trained MONKEY to do that! Melee DPS has - CC and still be in position to attack, don't stand in fire, don't get hit, pick up adds when the come because the tank sure as hell can't hit hard enough to take them down, watch aggro so that you don't pull off the tank who seems to have his finger in his nose right now, manage aggro when you pull it off the tank... again.... Oh, and KILL THE HELL OUT OF STUFF BECAUSE EVERYONE IS FOCUSED ON THEIR "DPS" INSTEAD OF JUST DOING THEIR DAMN JOB!THEN - You get the 1 DPS who thinks he's God's Gift to DPS, while dealing with a Tank who has "e-peen" issues and thinks if he's not calling all the shots that he'll be overlooked for the Asshole of the Year awards, and a healer who believes that they should have shorter queue times because everyone will die without them. What does that leave? Me and one other DPS who just want to get in, get our damn VP, and get the hell out!But no, we get to deal with the rest of you.The LFD has led me to some great runs, where I've learned a LOT and had a great time. Just last night I queued on my warlock (lvl 76), we ran a dungeon, had a great time, queued again, had another great run, then again. We had a blast, we worked together to get the job done (granted, wrath dungeon, so not a lot of "work" was needed), but overall, it was a great experience.85 Heroics have brought out the "I have a bigger e-peen than you" crap from JUNIOR HIGH, and it seems that tanks do more of that than anyone else! Well, I guess if a Monkey could do my job, I'd act that way too....
