That one guild, where you know if they are looking for PuGs, you avoid it like the plague (unless you’re looking to bash your head against a wall repeatedly).
It is rare enough to get fellow server-mates in a random heroic. Apparently it isn’t rare enough. The “tank” was from that one guild. The Death Knight “tank” was wearing mostly PvP gear, with a few pieces of PVE dps gear and one piece of tank gear.
He was very squishy. He was so squishy we were wiping on trash.
I’m frantically clicking “Vote to Kick,” meanwhile attempting to be polite to him and whispering him that he should stick to a dps role until he has a full set of tanking gear with defense capped. He agrees with me, but does he voluntarily leave? Of course not.
Meanwhile I’m getting the little warnings, “This person cannot be kicked for another 8 minutes.”
Finally, I am able to kick him after much aggravation on my part desperately trying to keep his critable butt alive. As he gets kicked he has the nerve to call me a “fuckwad.” Really? I’m the fuckwad who queued to tank when I obviously couldn’t? I was trying to be nice by giving him advice and suggesting he not queue as tank. He agreed with me, but didn’t take the hint that we could not do the instance with him tanking.
~sigh~ Honestly, I feel a bit guilty. I don’t think I should feel guilty though. If I hadn’t done it, the other people in the group would have.
I didn’t even dream of trying to tank heroics until I was defense capped on my pally. Even then I felt bad because my health pool was only 26k.
WTB a thingy that measures whether a tank is defense capped otherwise won’t let them queue as tank in heroics.
