As my priest and even as my hunter, I didn’t see much asshattery. Stupid, yes, but not asshattery. Of course things with my warrior, as I predicted, were…different.
Enter my warrior tank and suddenly OH GOD, people are UTTER ASSHOLES.
Ironically, you know who the worst ones are? The healers. Oh lord, my fellow healers, you can be fucking jerks! I mean I’m a right snarky bitch, this is true, but I’ll never leave a group in VH right before a boss spawn. No one had died, we weren’t going too slow (we were keeping up with portal spawns, and you just can’t do better than that) but the tree abruptly declared that we sucked and left. As the incoming boss warning spammed my screen.
Wut? Fuck you too, tree.
My poor warrior gets in these groups where DPS pulls first, or the healer runs clear to the other side of the instance with mobs (FUCK YOU ROOM OF DOOM IN HOS), and suddenly everything is my fault. Oh, that’s assuming people don’t just take one look at my gear and leave group at the start. I spent one UK run flailing because the ret pally was pulling everything first and at the end the healer calls me a bad tank and leaves.
No, no, fuck you. I’m not the best warrior tank-of course not! But you can’t expect perfection when the DPS won’t give me even 1 bloody second to try to use Heroic Throw to grab a caster before AoEing and dragging the mobs to hell and back. Bwuh. And invariably, the first person to leave…the person to talk the worst shit…was the healer.
Every single god damned time. The DPS was usually no more than derp derp stupid, though I’d occasionally get the PULL FASTER commentary from them.
I present the face of a snarky bitch here in my blog, but I would never bail on a group like that, or say some of the shit I had said to me this weekend. Never. I was baffled that “my fellow healers” could be such a group of cumguzzling cockmongers.
Lyestra the warrior is done with full random pugs.
