Riggins is literally one of the best tanks in the history of World of Warcraft.
Blood Legion raids for world firsts, and if you screw up consistently in a guild like that you do not, and I repeat DO NOT deserve to be there under any circumstance. There comes a point where you are the sole reason we didn't kill this before the other guild - and when raiding for a rank that is unacceptable. At that point you're not wasting your time, you're wasting the entire guilds time; from the Raid Leader to the backups of the backup's backups.
Even in a more relaxed raiding guild, people are there to complete the content. If you wiped on a boss 46 times because the same person consistently, like clockwork, was the reason you wiped, you need to remove them if you expect anything to get done. Are you as a RL or GM going to let someone's constant mistake waste the time of you and everyone else in your group? There are no doubt people vying for that persons spot, who would love to prove themselves to the guild. You letting the screw-up continue to screw up is ruining everyone's experience.
Some people need to be yelled at before it clicks sometimes. Only babies should be babied, and babies can't play WoW.
A lot of people mention Rigg's prior service. Does anyone know what his MOS was?
As a raid healer, before I quit. Your job is to heal, not DPS. Rig does have a point, if people are full health, cool feel free to smite and heal with that. But if they are any lower than like 95%, top them off before you do DPS
Did Rig go a little overboard here? Yes, but like most people have said, BL is sponsored. He does play with a lot very good players. Personally though, I feel that a lot of hardcore people like Rig should not pug. Because the pugs rarely compare to their guild members and this happens a lot of the time.
However though, if I were that Priest I would have had two options there. 1 being apologize for not paying attention to the raids health and not let it happen again. Or 2, bail. I'm pretty sure this was on the PTR so nobody really cares about it, but I wouldn't put up with someone screaming at me the way he did.. But then I wouldn't try and fight back either so I don't really know lol
For anyone who is still confused, Penance and Holy Fire/Solace should be cast on CD. With my curent gear, Penance heals for over 200k in less then 2 seconds, while Holy Fire/Solace is about 130k for an instant cast. They are also both smart heals, so they always go to the lowest health target. They both build stacks for Archangel. Include Divine Aegis for crits, and it's a no brainer that casting them on CD is beneficial to your healing.
Smite is a bit different in that it has a cast time and heals for a lot less. That being said, if the damage is sporadic and isn't predictable, Smite can be your best option sometimes.
Don't forget all the damage the Disc is doing during that time, which is invaluable for a 10 man.
The only thing that Priest was doing wrong, without having seen the actual fight or logs, is that he was using Atonement on a boss with 75% damage reduction, which made his Atonement heal for shit all.
Game developers hate healers. We prevent their bosses from killing the players.

Please don't be so naive to think that Blood Legion is the only guild with a raid leader who occasionally snaps and yells at people.
I completely understand if you don't like Rigg and therefore cannot root for BL, but if you think that you are noble or good because you think that somehow BL is less deserving of a World First kill because of their raid leader's actions, then you are living in a mirage.
I have a toon on their server but have only interacted with one or two of them and they were civil.
This is his life!!!!!!!!!!!! He has nothing else. What a loser. I bet he got his milk money stolen when he was a kid.
Raid leader or not, you don't need to treat someone like that.
If the priest is unwilling to listen to constructive criticism that's given in a respectable way, then you kick him and find a replacement, it's that simple.
I understand the RL was frustrated, but some thing like, 'priest, you need to do a better job of preventing raid deaths. looking at the logs you're spending too much effort on dps'ing when you should be healing. (insert more feedback here). if you can't figure this out in the next few pulls we're going to bench you for another healer.' would have been more effective in getting desired results. I'm fairly certain that was the message he was trying to communicate, but the delivery failed.
Can you say you're better at everyone else in the world, or even in your own country, at anything? Doubtful.
"Yeah, I'm a career gamer. You can see my hardcore gaming lifestyle was well worth it, and you'll find me on the 4th page of wowprogress.com. A real accomplishment. People all over the world know I'm better than everyone after that precious fourth page." said no one ever.
Both the Method and BL video linked on the first page was 100% called for though. The priest is trying to defend his actions as if he did the right thing, then he brings an attitude. Attitude + being wrong is something that would piss off even the most calm guy (unless he's stupid).
