OK my Biggest Pet Peeve in PuG's is when I run into these Recount Junkies, who at level 30 are spitting out the DPS charts at the end of bosses/runs. Now I don't mind Recount being posted at 85 at the end of a Raid. But for the love of Pete if your leveling it doesn't matter, seriously save that crap for the end game it's not needed if your killing freeking Doan in Scarlet Monestary. ~~~New Story~~~I was on my main(Balance Druid) in End time last night, getting my Weekly dose of VP cap. When we have this DK as a Tank. Now mind you I don't mind DK tanks that know what thier doing. But this DK Tank was clad all in PVP gear, with 0 Gems, 0 Enchants. Everytime he would die he'd go "Rez pls" Or if he died to trash "He'd go BR me druid" I would go "Dude we ALL ran back stop being so lazy and do the same" or "I have a cooldown on my BR I'm not going to blow a BR on you on trash, when it could come into play on a Boss fight". It got so bad he was Dying EVERY time on Murozond and we wiped 2times. I Vote Kicked him out I got so sick and tired of his crap. I can understand cheesing your way into the new Heroics with only ONE piece of PvP gear to boost ya over if Regular Heroics aren't dropping the drops ya need. But ALL PvP gear that's just foul, his highest iLvL piece was a 318 axe. I am Begging everyone, Please don't come completely Clad in PvP gear, one piece sure that's ok but all that's just not good cricket. And Please for the love of GOD stop posting Recount at level 30, Yes I know there's DPS Nazies out there and yes I know you all seem to think that those things are the end all be all, but shit at lvl 30 it's about leveling not about who's tallywhacker is the biggest.

I hate those recound guys too! Do my head in! It's even worse when they link the Recount after the first trash pull of the dungeon.

Can I just say that I love your vernacular?

I may be a minor exception to your no pvp gear rule...I have blue pve items at best (some greens); meanwhile my iLvl 410 PVP weapons and mostly Cataclysmic pvp gear (403) might actually be an improvement regardless of the resilience waste.Quick question if I queue for regular (non heroic) dungeons are the queues long? As I know nothing about any of the encounters I'd like to start at the beginning.

Scrub. PvP gear as a tank is not doable. PvP gear never has any avoidance, and is therefore useless to a tank (Apart from maybe having one 390 piece instead of a 318 piece for example).Healers and DPS can get away with it a bit more. I have to say though, that having people in LFR or BH runs (Especially) who explain their lack of DPS because they are in PvP gear gets my goat. Do we PvP in PvE gear? If we did what would the PvPers say?

Hehe, I love the word "tallywhacker", and hardly anybody uses it.Anywho, yes, being asked for a brez by a DPS who died to stupid on trash is one of my pet peeves as well.Actually had a Rogue just yesterday who died to Tyrande's trash (.....) and started yelling for me (DK) to brez him. When I flat-out told him I wasn't going to waste the long CD on a non-tank/healer and on trash, he started in with the "Liar bet you just don't have it on your bars bet you didn't even know DKs HAD a brez until I said something just now now just find raise ally in your spellbook and rez me already k?"... -_-
