    now a days? I suppose you never played in classic where you'd spend a good deal of time in IF spamming trade for a group get one, make your way to the instance...up hill...both ways..in the snow..in greens...you get there. Wait for stragglers who can't find the entrance or if it was say Mara or Strat more often then not you'd get at least one person who went in the wrong entrance or didn;t know this was the instance you were doing so they would leave. BACK to IF again..up hill..both ways..in the snow..in greens.

    FINALLY get to running the instance and get "oh your a hunter I don't like hunters" or "I have a guildie who's a hunter and wants to come so..." "you have been removed from the group"

    If that didn't happen some NE female rogue named Wksurs who was guildless and spoke in one word responses..mostly "yes" would roll need on something you needed then eventhough it was BOP would try to sell it to you OR the Bone slicing hatchet finally drops or the bow from Scolo and the tank needs it claiming tank priority or getting shit for needing on something you actually need with that stupid "hunter loot" crap..

    This game always has has assholes...just people are more whiney about it now

    Pretty it's meant to be ridicule.

    Most of the times it's because you put bad tanks outside of their comfort zone. That would make them better, but the thing is, being bad is not a crime, so they have the right to tank it at their pace, unless it's truly annoying to the rest.

    Anyways, any above decent tank will just pick it up and speed up. Sadly, at this point of the game the correct rhytm is to make the dps run behind you with their tongues sticking out from boss to boss. Even if the healer gets locked outside the boss room with every single pack on you from the start, it doesn't get interesting.

    Yeah, assholeness goes up 1000% when there is no penalty for doing so. I let people tank when they pull, if they want to tank I will give them that opportunity, I just dps until they die. I always say "oh, I thought you wanted to tank, my bad"

    And this is why I queue as a tank on my Frost DK... And it's why I'll keep my Blood spec handing come WoD... So I can give solid runs and don't have to deal with pathetic, control freak tanks.

    I'd much rather support those four other people and give them a solid, efficient experience by being a good tank than to go on some control freak rant just because "I'm the tank."

    Well, I guess we know who is the "guy" who runs ahead in this thread. The one who pulls everything in front of the tank, regardless of who may be ready or not. The rockstar puller. This same guy will piss and moan the whole run when he dies too, and its funny, and I laugh, but you know what? They stop doing it. Same guy bitches about wait times but never rolls a tank. Yeah, we all know this guy.

    Who exactly is "the guy"? Because it's definitely not me. I'm the one offering quick, efficient runs Q'ing as a tank... You know, doing the job tanks should be doing >.> Thought I made that pretty clear. I hope you tank better than you comprehend what you read <3

    It's okay, friend. I realize this may seem impossible to a player like you... But there was a time for me that even max level seemed virtually impossible! You'll get there, just keep trying

    I wish you the best, friend.

    Thanks god I am a geared warlock with 1.2 million HP in instances and 500k HP Ember Taps, so I don't have to deal with little whiny control freak tanks like you.

    Never understood how people can be proud of the "I will intentionally try to screw you over just because you hurt my ego" mentality. Makes you feel important or something?

    I once got some asshole like this who was like "lawl u tnak kk?" and then when he seen it's not going his way tried to pull more trash on me just hoping that I may die or something without realizing that he just gave me more Embers to go wild with AOE and heals.

    Wow some right arrogant douche'esque replies to the op. While i do not tank anymore, i have in the past and i do play a warrior so im going to air my opinion like everyone has. The tank is, has been and always will be in control of the pace of the dungeon and the pulls (healer mana permitting ofc) anyone who says otherwise, well i dont know which game you are playing....... nor should the tank be harrassed by idiotic heroic raider alts shouting pull MOAR! hurry up etc and wandering aimlessly pulling/agroing unnecessary packs like a blind writhing worm towards their own demise. Wether the game is easy or not does not make it right for others to make pulls. If im on my healer and others are pulling with blatent disregard, they die, its not their job thats the tanks job. OT the op is right that there is no etiquette or manners for that matter anymore. Long gone are the days of saying a courteus hello and stuff which is a real shame, sometimes you do get some nice players in your group but its a rarity nowadays. The dps mindset these days is really poor.

    They don't. That's the thing.
    In most cases you will end up there bitching about the others while they clear the place without a single heal from you. Because well geared DPS nowadays neither need a tank, nor a healer for heroics. Sorry to burst your "I'm in control!"-bubble

    Also, you are not the only one with healing spells in your group. As a shadow priest, I have no problems with throwing some offheals on a DPS that makes the run faster for everyone - ensuring that he won't die.

    What the fuck are you talking about? Heroic Dungeons are easily solo'ed by a decent DPS with good equipment, so I couldn't care less if I get any heals from a whiney healer playing diva. Plus: Most tanks found via LFD are really poorly equipped and therefore won't hold aggro anyway...

    It's cute, though, how healers and tanks still think that they're needed for completing heroic dungeons nowadays.

    Awesome signature by Toraah - thank you very much!

    1st time dps pull randomly ill taunt and healer will heal. 2nd time they do it they are on their own. If they die it is their own fault. And dps die every single dungeon though I wonder how many learn from it
    I call bs on this.

    99% of the healers I've done LFD with just heal anyone, mainly the DPS, because the tank is too busy typing out a 1000 word lecture how we have to sniff his rosy turds and wait for his slow ass to pull.

    meh when i tank i go by the pull it you tank it mentality, ill keep a decent pace with the healer, but if ppl start pulling ill let them tank the mobs, same goes for hunter pets if they don't remove taunt ill let it die.

    in the end if you don't like it as a dps your free to leave and enjoy your next 1hr queue, me on the other hand can also leave and enjoy my 30 second queue.

    but its so easy now you can actually tank 5 mans as a dps, the only time dps pulling annoys me is when its in raids and they are pulling packs that will one shot them. or they scatter and go right for the healers. thats usually kick worthy.
