Midway through last week I began the Random Project, an effort to see what servers the “bad players” are mostly from.
07/23/10 – Heroic CoS – Amaranthine (healer) and Holyspell (tank)
Balur – Nazgrel – Mage
Xard – Nazgrel – Ret Paladin
Lorette – Mok’Nathal – Warlock
All dps behaved well and performed decently for a heroic. Nothing to make this instance stand out positively or negatively.
07/24/10 – Heroic HoL – Amaranthine (healer)
Boggiebear – Antonidas – DK Tank
Ashtron – Antonidas – Hunter
Gstone – Borean Tundra – Warrior
Lorena – Mok’Nathal – Mage
This was one of the most fun heroics I have run in a good while, largely because the tank was playfully bantering back and forth with me. All of us performed well, and joked about whether or not we had set the dungeon on heroic, because it was too easy. If I could rate people instead of just ignoring, Boggiebear would have gotten several thumbs up!
07/25/10 – Heroic HoR – Amaranthine (healer)
Rorke – Nordrassil – DK Tank
Corko – Nordrassil – Hunter
Horagalles – Shandris – Shaman
Mangler – Drenden – Ret Paladin
We wiped twice. The tank was struggling to hold aggro the entire time. I don’t think it was because the dps was being overly aggressive either. The hunter died during the first group of waves before Falric and released and ran back in, only to be locked out of the room. I explained that he shouldn’t have run back, I could have rezzed him at the very least after Falric. We managed to get through this dungeon relying on the strength of myself, the shaman and paladin, who ended up tanking stray mobs that the tank apparently couldn’t handle. The tank thanked us at the end because he hadn’t thought he would be able to tank this dungeon. All in all, not a good showing for Nordrassil. They were nice people, but not the best players.
07/25/10 – BRD – Vivacious (healer) level 53
Redhammer – Drenden – Paladin Tank
Assassin – Moonguard – Hunter
Sueaside – Antonidas – Mage
Sranthony – Nazgrel – Warrior
Bigwager – Antonidas – Hunter
So, I have had my first experience with a jerk from Moonguard. On entering the dungeon, Assassin, the hunter, immediately started pulling 2-3 packs of mobs, before we could even get buffs out. We wiped. The tank asked Assassin to stop pulling mobs, and asked that if he wants to go faster or pull more to say so and let the tank make the pulls. This didn’t slow Assassin down. He kept pulling and pulling, and never said a word. We wiped twice because of his over-pulls. We were trying to be patient with him. After the second wipe he was still doing this, at which point the tank and I agreed to let him die. With him dead we were finally able to kick him (can’t kick while in combat).
Assassin was replaced with another hunter, Bigwager, who behaved very well in comparison. We moved on, but unfortunately none of us were familiar with the dungeon and we didn’t know which boss we needed to kill to get our satchel. We wandered around and killed probably 8 bosses, but never got our satchel and finally gave up.
