I geared my pally tank in all 378 gear in about 4 days in the new heroics, and really had a good time doing it. I am an extremely patient person, and I never yell at the DPS or anyone for that matter...it just isn't worth getting upset over.Most DF runs go smoothly, but the other night I had a group of DPS that were all pulling around 10k each, and we wiped 6 times on Archbishop Benedictus. The longer that fight goes, the more purple pools you get, and it gets very messy. The healer was losing his mind on the DPS by wipe 3, and he was whispering me to initiate kicks or to start yelling at them all. So, I voted to kick him instead, and we got a new healer and eventually dropped the boss. People have to get gear somehow...and getting booted from dungeons because the RNG unluckily grouped 3 low DPS isn't the fault of anyone.

That's quite a story. On the one hand - I feel bad for the healer. I'm not sure that I blame him for voting to kick, but if all three DPS are bad... who do you vote to kick? Now - three of my guildies and I queue for a Twi-roic, and ended up in End Time with a Warlock. The Warlock wasn't BADLY equipped, but wasn't gemmed / enchanted. We did two bosses with him pulling - I shit you not - less than 4k. I asked if everything was alright, got no response, and initiated the kick. I wasn't about to pull 4K through the Murozond fight. I'll always give someone a chance, but that was just ridiculous.

The last fail DPS I had to kick was a warlock too, odd.It was on Jaina. He had been pulling 4-6k up till then, but we had some high roller DPS on the other end that made up for it. Then the warlock planted and wouldn't run to flamecores. We wiped. We explained that whoever was nearest to a flamecore had to stand on it, and it wasn't fair to make a melee or heals peel off to try and get to a core in time when he was standing right next to it.Tried it again, this time with everybody knowing to watch for cores near the lock. Again he didn't move. We downed the boss since everybody broke off for the cores to cover the lock's ineptitude. "We don't mind carrying your lousy DPS, but its really hard to overlook it when you won't even try to help with boss mechanics. Adios." Vote to kick, near insta-succeed.
