I think I've completed Deadmines successfully twice.. can't count the amount of times I've been randomed into it though. People leave at the door (and I will follow, but I will not break a group willing to try), or the group gets going and someone drops after whatever fight. I'll stick it out as long as the people dropping get replaced relatively quickly (which, with dps its almost instant). Yesterday I zoned into a group that was at the reaper guy, I was told I was the 3rd dps replacement. After the fight, another one left, bring on #4! By the time we got the ripsnarl, a 5th replacement had come in. Not sure what happened, but phase 2 fog and ghosts, ripsnarl threw us all off the boat (not in the kill him or be consumed part, we didn't get that far), I got dumped in the water along with most of the group, the tank got splatted on the beach.. I left when the healer starting complaining again. I'd rather do Shadowfang! And I'm not a fan of that place either. The other cata heroics aren't terrible (though I thought they would be), except.. the beams in Blackrock. I can do the Zandalaris, but I won't throw myself into them alone. I go with a guildie or 2 though. I'm still waiting for shoulders from ZA, I forget who drops em, but he's been VERY stingy with them! I guess it was only a matter of time before they'd become part of "the heroics" instead of being their own thing. Cause really, how random can you get with 2 options. Now there are 10 options on that random button, which is nice.. always a surprise to see where you're headed.. though I agree, I see lots of groups falling apart at either of the troll doors.I am really looking forward to the new heroics, something new to do.. little worried though, but thats mostly because this new alt is the best character I've ever had (doing current teir heroics while they're current!). The ICC 5-mans were amazing the first time I saw them (during cata though, not while they were relevant). I think these new ones are going to be awesome as well.

If y'all got thrown off the boat... it's because nobody (or at least not enough) was killing the adds before they exploded.If there's a vapor up, that's your target, unless you can kill Ripsnarl before they blow (ie, when he summons an extra three simultaneously just before he dies.)
