This weekend I had the misfortune to be in a group with this guy for heroic Oculus. Now from what I have heard, most people drop group the moment they see it is Oculus. Since I had never done it on my mage I hoped that the group would stay. Well I got lucky in that everyone stayed. I was unlucky with the tank. *sigh*
Before I start any instance I like to scan over the people I am with to gauge what kind of run I am going to get. The tank and the rogue were very well geared. The resto druid, the hunter and myself were fresh 80s gear. No prob, we could do it. Before we started the hunter apologized and had to AFK really quick, no biggie, we told him we could wait. Everyone but the tank stayed and waited for the hunter to come back. The tank decided he was going to get the party started and ran into the first pile of mobs. The rest of us had no choice but to follow him. As we started AoEing the crap out of the whelplings the hunter came back and joined us in the AoE storm.
The first part of the instance is fairly straightforward, you run down the row and dps the mobs. Afterwards it can get slightly confusing if you have never been there before. The hunter and the druid had never been there before.
We killed the first boss, who btw is a huge PITA for casters >.>, and the tank, the rogue and myself mounted up on drakes. The druid had no idea what to do and ended up picking a ruby drake. The poor hunter was totally lost. The tank starts in on them and calls them retards and said that we were in for a ride because the retards don’t know shit. I piped up and told him to cut it out. I told the druid to get on a green drake and explained to the hunter how to get an amber drake. Before the hunter could even mount up the tank was off to where he was going to have us start. I tried to help the hunter find us, but he somehow got killed. The tank kept berating him the entire time. The hunter zoned back in, apologized and dropped group.
The tank of course was the party leader and so he queued us up for another dps. We got another hunter. I let him know where we were and we continued to dps the mobs down.
In the absence of the newbie hunter the tank starts in on the tree. He starts calling her a retard and saying “I have such a fail healer. What the fuck are you doing spamming healing touch?” I stood up for the healer and said she was probably a fresh 80 and hadn’t gotten her healing rotation down. I then told the tree, “My main is a resto druid. Your best healing rotation is to put 1 or 2 HoTs up on the target then spam Nourish if you need bigger heals.” She thanked me then dropped group.
Then the tank started in on me and my dps. I was doing 1800-2000 btw. Started going off about how bad my dps was and how he was doing double mine, he was doing 2600. I said “First of all we were NOT over geared and were doing quite well for our gear levels. Secondly you are an asshole.” I then put him on ignore and dropped group. I still can’t believe I put up with that for as long as I did.
So to all of you on the Ruin battlegroup, if you get this guy drop group and take the 15 min wait time. Or better yet, put him on ignore, THEN drop group. I want this jerk to never get a good group again. There is NO REASON to treat people like that ever.
Also, if you are a jerk I will totally call you out on it and tell the small corner of the Internet that reads my blog.
