LFG has long been a endless source of material to moan and complain about – but I think I’m getting cleverer.
Inserting Witty comments and the like. Right before I leave group.
On my Healing priest – I could see the tank was out of range because my raidframes had him out of range, and here I see this hunter shooting at meathook. So I heal him, and I’m keeping him up, and then he stops kiting, and feins, so someone squishy starts taking damage, and he’s a little harder to keep up, and its all going ok untill like 20% and everyone starts dying. That’s when they realise OMG the tank was afk and didn’t rescue them.
My Tank Brynhild is now level 30 ( and having a short break, cause I kinda got excited and now have outleveled my leveling partner ) but I am educating the dps about not pulling in most of my runs. It’s an important lesson to learn.
We let one die. ( I was in cahoots with my healer) that was a bad one. Like he had been asked, told, Pleaded with, and he didn’t even try to bring it over.
I am somewhat patient. They get a couple of mistakes, but -” please don’t pull” is usually said at least once an instance.
The fun ones have been when they have gone off to other parts of the room, ( eg 30 yards away in Gnomer) to pull, and then yell ” help”
It got so bad every time one run I was letting the healer drink I was saying “Don’t pull” incase they got trigger/dagger/random mage spell happy – that’s kinda funny. The Tank having to tell them not to pull.
I asked why did you pull
” Your too slow”
I replied “Healer had no mana”
I supposed if I am able to rely less on a healer. EG Keep a lot of Health pots on me, I could go faster. I’ve gotten a few Oh Crap button cool downs now, Last Stand, Shield Wall – so can survive a little easier.
I am finding with repetition comes a lot more confidence. I found my Tank leading voice on my 5th or so run of Gnomer in a row. “We are going to Jump, aim for the middle of the Cog.” and now I have apparently outgrown Gnomer, so LFG has been sending me into Scarlet Monastary Graveyard. Which is only a very short instance – I ran it four times in a row with basically the same group ( of course they were happy to requeue if the tank was)
There’s one thing that has been bothering me. I wonder if I should be displaying my Cloak? – you’ve heard of plummers crack?
This is Tauren Cow crack.
