May 2nd 2011 8:29AM The scene: Sunday Grim Batol PUG
The actors: Paladin tank, paladin healer (me) and 3 dps: mage, something, shaman. Mage was a main prolly, raid equivalent gear, doing 40% of the damage in boss fights.
What im about to tell you its a secret :D, my PUG mates didnt knew about it. Also its the first time ive done this and i'll swear i'll never do it again.
Dragon bombing run starts. Me thinks lets not going all medieval on poor mobs ass and save them for reputation kill, just damage them. Im starting to think that someone else in party had the same ideea or they just went play with they're cat while bombing run was on.
All the 5-6 mob packs were intact, damaged but intact.
Now, my paladin healer has a ludicrous mix of mostly 346 and a couple 316 ilvl gear :) Bracer and hands 316 ilvl items were an eye soaring compared with the 346 items, all sprinkled with blue gems and enchants (the good ones to boot).
I can heal a heroic with no sweat, as long the tank its not a wotlc tool. Guess what kind of was mine ? That right, wotlc tool !
Running in the middle of them, no marks, with no CC, he didnt even bothered to put a Divine Shield resulted in a 3-4 insta deaths. Most of the wipes were caused on trash, boss fights were most of them one shots (ill get later to the "most part" mention).
He spat all kinds of crap towards me, nothing too vile though, but enough to insult me. I kept my cool and try to bargain with him to play a little more safe. How i was able to keep my cool through all this 2-2 and half hour long run is beyond me :)
Anyway, if at the beginning of the run, the other dps-ers thought i was over my head with the healing job, soon they realize that the tank had his shortcomings too, like when he pulled another 5-6 mobs pack while i was rezing a dead dps and my mana was 50%.
Skipping forward to last boss, Erudax. From the intial group were me, tank and the mage.
Tank started acting cocky like "you dumbasses know what to do here?". We barely had time to say "yes" only to see him charging the boss. Who takes and slows and kills what add ? Not tank job apparently ! He didnt even bothered to place marks on trash before, each dps had a different priority resulting in 6 mobs alive, each with 1% HP and tank becoming a smear on the floor. But i digress :)
Erudax take 2: Im jumping on the proverbial buss with no driver and assign dps on the 2 adds. Fights starts, adds gets killed BAM ! BAM ! Flawless phase 1 !
Now its the punch line ! :lol: Tank misses one of the vortexes and dies :lol: :lol: :lol: followed by a swift vote kick by someone (wasnt me i swear).
Somehow, besides the all the abuse caused by that tank, towards every party member (obviously i took the larger shit plate), i felt bad about passing my vote kick as "Yes". He had balls, i give him that ! After so many wipes, on trash even, he sticks around. Grande Cojones Tank, I salute you ! :)
Actually, i started to feel bad a few hours afterwards, but right then, i was pissing my self laughing, imagining the nerd rage when he saw that he didnt get his BOA bag and the precious VP.
Moral of the story: being a douche and acting all-knowing-all-doing will cause the others to be less forgiving when you blatantly drop the ball.
Apr 20th 2011 10:08AM You do have a valid point mate, but remember that LFG is an alternative :) If you want to run dungeons with people you know, thats what guild is for .. or at leat it should be.
From my experience in PUGing, that extends back to TBC, PUGs are like chocolates, you never know what you gonna get :) Sometimes is bad, sometimes good.
Its a close fight between guild groups and LFG, imo the LFG wins. Why ? Cause you can haul ass whenever you feel like and not look back with LFG :))

Type your password
TADA ! You're in .. cause blizzard normal authentication procedure FRAKING IGNORES lower/upercase values. Porn sites have more sensible authentication than Blizzard.
So, you wan me to spend 10 euros or what it cost PLUS shiping for what ? For you having a crappy auth procedure.
If i get hack (after 5 years of playing i havent yet) they better give all my stuff back pronto !
