Buffing Flagged and Unflagged Players

I did a Za run last night with a non Guild group – ( they were all in Kara) and one of the Players was flagged. We had been waiting for more then 5 minutes so it was inconsiderate of him to not unflagg as we became ‘infected’ when we buffed.  The raid leaders say “Ok now everyone flag up.” I ask “Why?” “Because you can’t buff all people in a group  if all the group at the same time if all are either all flagged or all non flagged.”   I say “Huh?” He says just do it.  I do it.  I say “Im toggling it on and and then off so It will go down in 5 mins. ” He said Leave it on.  ” I said no because  – I wasn’t flagging up when  I didnt have to”   I say I don’t agree with your theory.

 Even in an instance,   so many things can happen to make some or one person go out of the instance.  Summons of new players – Repairs – buying Reagents, all can cause you to go out of the instance at any time.  The whole group doesnt go out to protect you – and dieing by Pvp isnt painful, the body camping that can ensure is though, especially when your trying to do a raid. I wasn’t flagging when I didnt have to.

So we killed boss one – and some trash on other various bosses untill we realised that we may not have the right group make up. One of the wipes the whole Buffing while some are in PVP and other arent.   Flag up the Raid leader says – I say “I think you are wrong about this – in all my time of buffing people up Ive never had to rebuff because I was PVP and someone else wasn’t  or Vice versa. I buff the group – the only problems i have is when people insist on a group buff and someone is out of range. “Im right” says the raid leader. ” I don’t think you are. I say”  – Raid leader adopts a “I know everthing because not only have I played your class – but ive also been playing longer then you are- Tone. ” No….” and starts trying to explain in a condecending tone.  I say I understand what your saying – but its not true but it doesnt matter lets just kill the guy.

Another wipe – Some repaired some brought reagents and we needed to summon a warlock  – My flag had worn off by then – but if there had been a l33t Horde team waiting near the summoning stone they would have all been goners.. and I would have watched and laughed.

So we flagg up again – and I take notice of who gets buffs and who doesnt.

 I took a screen shot of an Unflagged player who sucessfully got buffed from Me while I was flagged because the other group I had buffed infected me because none of them had toggled off their PVP.

Im right I know I am – I pushed it to a reasonable point – concluded with  – I have NEVER in all my months of buffing  had to rebuff because of pvp/non pvp and i get infected all the time.. 

I tell the raid leader by whisper later I have such a screen shot with a 😛 so he knows no hard feelings.

“It must be bugged then”

*screams silently in frustration.  I have never heard of that pvp/non pvp buff issue..  and really most of the none buffs are because people dont run back into instance with rest of raid.. or are out of range.
