“We would like to recognize your tenacity in running dungeons with people you probably haven’t met before. Hopefully even showed some rookies the ropes in your pick-up groups”
Reads the letter you get from the Wow Dev team when you achieve looking for Multitudes by grouping with 100 randoms and get your perky Pug.
I’m spending a lot of time in Dungeons, on my Priest Zahraah as Shadow but most often holy. ( please don’t leave me – I am still a shadow priest) on my Hunter Zippina, and now on occasion my 2nd priest Ostara. I’ve healed you – I’ve dps’d I’ve wiped with you, I’ve even lead you.
Yes we kicked the tank in Heroic Nexus with 18k health ” You’ve got to start somewhere” he tries to explain when we question why he the pally tank is wearing a spellpower chest. Or get concerned when a druid rolls a need on a green because it’s an upgrade, ( and it was.. ) or when I ask another druid in pure PVP gear including pvp trinkets does he have anything else to wear and he says no.
I’ve told a mage who gemmed for armor and attackpower on his belt he was fail – but the good news was we could help. ( and we did.. ) Seen people with gear missing from slots, I even left a group because someone refused to take off the santa hat and was going to fight a boss in it.
The wording in the letter – “Hopefully even showed some rookies the ropes in your pick-up groups” makes me reflect a little on how you tell people they are being scrub in these randoms, but most importantly. That it is their power to change. I don’t check anyone’s gear unless I think there is a problem, eg tank with low health, me as healer out dpsing the dps.
I don’t know every class by heart, so I don’t give suggestions to everyone, but when the mage doesn’t even have arcane intellect on themselves as a ghetto buff, or the warlock doesn’t have a pet anymore. Those things are kinda of obvious. It could also be part of my work background – my job was for many years working out what was missing from documents. Signatures, clauses, amendments, pages.
I am learning all about tanks.. ( and things like who should have shields) mainly so I can understand why some people are harder to heal then others. Partly because its a reflection of own ability if as a healer if I am struggling to keep a 40k tank up. When I find out he isn’t defence capped then I can go.. Ahhhhhh It’s not my fault.
I have been critiqued in my healing set – questioned why I had blackmagic on my weapon. ( it procs often enough that I like it for healing ) but yes heckles raised slightly - and my first reaction was to scoff. but then I had to laugh
I just recently discovered my 2nd priest didn’t have meditation – which is why I was struggling for mana) bad priest.
So in the spirit of showing you the ropes, I will offer advise if its obvious. It’s up to you what you do with it.
