So I'm a death knight. (Profile: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...erine/advanced )
I do pretty much exclusively LFR, since I came back to WoW a month ago; my ilvl is too low for Flex (LFM FLEX ilvl 545+ MUST HAVE leg cloak!) pugs and being out of the loop for so long I don't feel I could lead a flex group myself. Now, my DPS isn't the greatest (~170k), but unless someone walks into my LFR group with normal gear on, I'm almost always top 3 DPS. I switch to adds, I DPS adds (WHAAAAAT?! A melee switching targets?!). I pay attention to mechanics and don't die to avoidable damage: I open prisons on Sha (and don't even die to pride explosions), I run Thok down the hallway, I've even been known to AMS and wade into the corrupted Gorehowl because gods know LFR ranged won't kill it, etc etc.
Here's the thing... for all the effort I put into raiding, even if it is LFR (I use strength food and flasks, although I don't use potions because they are really expensive w/o an alchemist alt), I seem to get kicked from raids really frequently. I don't smack talk. I don't go afk. I do my job (and more!). So I don't understand what's going on. I mean, I just come out of a LFR Sha of Pride wipe where I was kicked literally TWO SECONDS after the raid wiped. I clicked release to run back and zoned into the Vale not being part of a group.
Do people just hate DK's that much this expansion? This happens to me all the time! Last week it took me literally all day to finish ONE WING of LFR SOO. I kept getting randomly kicked. I don't understand it, and it's pretty disheartening. Doesn't help I can't get into a competent guild because I don't have the legendary cloak yet and they're all halfway through heroic so I'd be vastly undergeared (and my old raiding credentials from BC/Wrath/Cata don't matter anymore because LOLDK'S CAN SOLO EVERYTHING; apparently reading achievement dates is hard).
