Why do a majority of my posts have to be PuG rants? Can’t I post about something interesting? Well, the random LFD PuGs make it not so.
I made a baby Paladin Horde side, and she is now level 15. I hardly play her, as I’ve been focusing on my main and my druid. So what do you do when you hit level 15? Queue for a random. Of course I got RFC. Unfortunately I also got the Warlock from hell.
His name is Vibrate from Borean Tundra, and if you see him in your group run far, far away. He was pulling mobs before the tank, tapping down to 20% health while I was drinking, then…
Vibrate: Heal me!
Meanwhile the hunter has pulled, despite the fact that I asked for a mana break and I am spamming heals on his pet, who is for some reason tanking.
Vibrate: Heal me, plOx!
Ama: Maybe you should drink when I sit down to drink. I am not your personal mana battery.
Vibrate: Yes, you are.
Ama: L2Tap properly.
Vibrate: I’d tap that.
At which point I decided not to worry about responding or healing him anymore. After which he actually started using Drain Life.
I also wound up telling the hunter I was going to stop healing his pet.
Oddly the run went well after this until we pulled the last boss.
I think Mr. Warlock wanted to clear the whole dungeon, but I was not about to go through any more with him and the tank didn’t want to either. So as we’re killing the boss, he sends his Voidwalker out to a group of mobs that couldn’t be farther away from us. Needless to say I did not heal his pet and bailed once the boss was dead along with the tank.
Moral of the story: Stand up to douchebags.
If you’re a Warlock and you’re reading this, please, try to put your Life Tap into your rotation so you don’t have to tap yourself down to near death between pulls. You can essentially keep yourself alive if you Life Tap periodically while DPSing and then throw out a Drain Life. I know this may decrease your damage output, but you aren’t going to be doing any damage if you’re dead. If you do run out of mana and need to tap a lot, for the love of God, if you see your healer drinking, then please sit and drink too.
