Feb 4th 2010 4:03PM The section about Replacements left to their own devices is easy to get around, just have one or all people teleport out of the dungeon and then teleport back in. You'll all meet the replacement at the door if you need to.
Jan 26th 2010 3:50PM I’ve been leveling as resto ever since I could queue in the LFD tool (10 or 15). It has been speedy and a lot of fun. I do have full heirlooms and make sure I’m in the highest level dungeon available so that may help with the speed. I get all the gear I need from the instances and usually plenty of gold too. The average queue time is about 2 minutes so I don’t really have time to do much else. When I do have those off nights I use it to level my professions. Most people would say that I’ve missed all the lore and things like that but I got bored really quick on the first few levels doing the same quests that I’ve done with all my other toons. I would highly suggest leveling this way if you’re like me and Raids/5-mans are the reason you play the game and you have high level alts to fund your new toon.

I soooo agree with you. I have lvl'd my resto driud to about 50 and I don't care if the other people in the group are new or in heirlooms. My toon is in full heirlooms and dungeon/random sack of worthless gear blues, so it seems that his stats may be a little OP for the content. Since I'm healing it doesn't usually matter if the tank isn't the greatest so it can be good fun/learning experience for all. I have 2 80 tanks of different classes so I will normally wisp the tank if I see them doing something wrong and ask if I could give them some advice. I hope that any ppl running that have healers and see me making mistakes would do the same. New players are great, they usually say sure, listen, apply the advice and make things run smoother. Other heirlooms players usually not only will shoot down my offer of advice but just get plain rude about it. I admit that I don’t know it all especially since this is my first healer but I’m open to advice with my 80’s much less my new guy.
The absolute worst case so far was in Orange crystals, the warrior tank (with heirloom chest and shoulders) was just horrible and there was a shaman just slamming her after and during the first two pulls. After the pulls I stuck up for this person, told the group that we just need to give her time to establish aggro at this lvl before we attack. The second pull, that ended was horrible as well, I stuck up for her again when everyone else was horribly slamming her and I suggested we wait until we see a sunder armor or two on the mob before we attack. After the third pull where everyone but the tank received the majority of the damage from one target I wisp’d her that maybe we should see if someone else in the group can tank since she was having a hard time holding aggro on just one mob and since later on there are several pulls where you need to hold it on several. She replied telling me I needed to shut up and just heal everyone with language that would have made a sailor blush. With that knowledge I did the only thing I knew to do. I let her pull again, healed everyone but her and when she died quit the group. Maybe that was wrong since I knew that there were no other toons in the group that can rez (unless they have jumper cables) and that it is horrible trying to find your way back to the entrance from the gy there, but it felt good at the time.
How can these people have acquired enough badges to get heirlooms without learning how to research their class and learn how to play it? Why wouldn’t you do that with an alt that you are serious enough to level over the very low levels? Yes people with heirlooms that can’t play I’m gonna call you out like Niallus.
Jan 8th 2010 9:38AM It was a simple fix for me. I already had a macro bound to a key that greets everyone while I’m buffing them. I just added the following text to that greeting.
"Hi All! When in the LFD system if something drops that you need, press need whether this is for your main or off-spec. If someone needs it more than you it can be talked about after the roll. This will make sure it doesn’t accidentally get disenchanted. Please don’t need an item just to sell it!"
It has worked for me because I’ve found that most confrontations just come from people not knowing what to do or too many times seeing something they could use get sharded.
