That's probably a bit more passive-aggressive that I wanted to come off.Suffice to say that often the tank is responding to a stated or implied urgency form the rest of the party to help them get their bears.At the start of a new run, everyone is optimistic that this time they might get a bear. If a tank was to pull leisurely, he would be pelted with verbal rubbish. Everyone who randoms into ZA will move as fast as they possibly can so as not to be the weak link in the chain and hence the subject of abuse when the run fails.I make every effort to do that responsibly, but my point is that I have a bear so I don't care if we make the timer or not - I move quickly because the group requires it. If I wait for the healer to have full mana to begin every pull, it's me who cops the abuse, not the healer.ZA groups want to run quickly, which means extra pressure for tanks and healers, and the reality of it is if either can't keep up with the required pull rate, there will be grief, and most often is it directed at the tank even if it is an under-geared healer that the tank needs to wait for.
