Blood Pact: Be a raider not a robot {WoW}

Mar 9th 2010 4:29PM Hmmph. Not the first time Wowinsider has taken content, title, or concept from our blog.

Breakfast Topic: Fun with jerks {WoW}

Jan 31st 2010 3:02PM Same instance - Heroic Foege of Souls. My main is a raid MT but I wanted a break so strapped on the DPS gear queued up and in we go. The tank had plenty of badge gear but was just awful with a bad attitude to boot. I quietly suffered until right before the last hallway leading to the Devourer.

At this point this jerk decided that he would not go forward unless we gave him the Scorpion trinket should it drop. Now, we could say "Sure", and still roll need, but enough was enough. I swapped builds, equipped my tank gear, and told the tank he wasn't needed.

The best part? The Scorpion dropped.

You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry {WoW}

Jan 4th 2010 12:24PM I join Old Kingdom, two people in the same guild are on, one a mage, the other a healer. One of the other two DPS tells me immediately that the last tank left in disgust on the first pull. This piques my curiousity as I respec and re-gear from DPS. As I am eating to recover the difference in health, the mage runs off ahead and blasts mobs. He dies, I finish eating and tank the trash. No heals (being a Blood DK is sometimes handy). Mage is bitching about my "low TPS". Re-rez, I pull one pack; mage decides pyroblasting the next two packs is smart. Mage dies. I get no heals, we manage to finish the trash. I left.

Forge of Souls. I zone in, start to respecc to tank. Paladin pops wings and pulls first mobs, dies. I cancel respecc, pop gear, and tank the two giants. The Warlock (same guild as the paladin) runs off ahead and Seeds the next pack. Dies. Healer (also same guild) is casting Penance on the mobs. I am still eating to recover the health from swapping gear. I get kicked for being "a fing noob."

And DPS wonders why it takes so long to find a group.

Nov 17th 2009 11:01AM @canyonblue Re: the return rate - make a friend at  who will tell you what the real deal is. Those forums are often filled with people that have done something stupid, like, say, wiping the HDD and reinstalling with retail Snow Leopard media. Now, if they did something silly like that, then there would be a driver issue which would cause flickering and other screen issues.

Do your research with some sense.
