Aaand the dungeon tool bugged and wouldn't teleport me to the dungeon me being forced to fly to the dungeon. Tank and the rest didn't notice that I wasn't there and started the dungeon...blaming me for NOT clicking on the clock that teleports...when it doesn't WORK..
Actually if you give it some time and just give a shout in party chat that it's buggered for a bit, it'll work. It usually takes a little bit but I've found that you don't always have to go hurtling off for the dungeon...
But by no fault was it yours that they did NOT wait.
I always wait for the healer when I tank on Caim
cause I am only imba with my little tree friend. [well usually are resto druids on my runs. Or priests. Forsaken priests usually too lol].
Worst group I had for LFG was yesterday. Ariamodasu and I get SFK done, then we head to do the daily dungeon. 4 seconds into queue blamo we had healer and 2 moar dps. We go in, 3rd time in a row it's Halls of Stone.
Ok, so this would be an easy 6 emblem run. I think goody; and already it starts to go downhill. Mage is pushy, and forcing me to pull more than I want to at first. I get oom halfway thru the trash to the first boss, sit down to drink as ofc we all know paladins make threat from mana.
When you have no mana, you have no threat. Barely get 2k back when LO I SHALL PULL NEXT TRASH.
I AUUURGGGEllsdaadfsadf and facesmash so hard to get threat up cause the mage overgears me that
He does it again and again and again and as I'm doing a readycheck of my spells, mana and buffs. HE PULLS THE BOSS.
But that gets over and done with; we go out, I want to do the maiden next. EMBLEMZ.
Then the mage and priest start yacking that 'omg we farm heroics you get moar emblems doing speed runs we don't give a flying damn you only do random dungeon once a day usually we want our speed run you damn tank get in there and be our flesh shield now!' basically.
I have had abuse, and I have had bad groups, but this was pushing it. So I stand back waiting for them to realize they can't advance without me, I want my emblem, and I try to explain again, while losing my temper, that I only do the daily once per day/only really have time as now that I've gotten well geared up for the most part, I don't have to do 2/5 dungeons a day for gear, emblems or anything else.
They basically do 'careface' responses and start pulling trash.
I let the mage die and the healer nearly die cause tbh it was their fault for going and pulling when I was BEHIND them.
So I still get more slack and I idle and the vote kicking fails so then they are like lol then leave.
So I did.
Aria told me the group basically dissolved at that point as no other tank came.
So as on apology for Aria, I got her into my random HoL run after a DK leaves without warning, and then queue with her again for random as evidently my thinking was skewed and she didn't get frost emblems like I did [thought it would count for her but eh].
And the worst pugs period tho? SFK event bosses.
Aria, Tailcoy and I use a simple system for taking down the bosses. It usually results in an easy, laidback for the most part, event. I OT Baxter. Tank and everyone else focuses on Hummel and Fyre is optional. Thanks to the colonge I am basically immune to damage except when Fyre crackghouls to me high on his meth and throws these poisonous presents at me.
You have no idea how much fail we have encountered. From people not using perfumes. From people not understanding we do it the easy way [aka seperate tanking] or getting called noobs when a tank was dumb enough to stand in puddles of poison try to tank both and dies because of it.
Leaving me to scramble for aggro and kite everything around like a bouncing loldin I am.
He tried to act macho and called us noobs and left.
I chewed him out saying we have had BETTER tanks than HIM [and myself] who NEVER complained about the strat we used as to be honest it is easy and allows us to squeak away with no healer.
Since tbh any melee dps could do this, with a big enough health pool AND a healer. Cause seriously, after they changed the AoE damage to pets? my pally was SAVED by a Devilsaur of a nice hunter we know, when both mobs were putting to much hurt on me [the tank for that run, you guessed it, left too.] And all I had to do was heal/shield the pet and it held up pretty well.
edit: by no healer I mean no one in the group specced for healing. Aria heals us and she's a boomkin.
