My main's a DK, I know really, really much about every tanking spec. A few days ago I'm running HoR on my mage and there's this half heroic-half ICC geared dk with frost spec and two fast tanking weapons.
Me: Mate, you shouldn't be using two tanking weapons really, it hurts your threat very much...
DK: Oh, really? What do you know of DKs, you 're a mage noob.
Me: My main is a DK and I'm tanking on it for more than one year and a half. I just wanted to help you.
DK: Well f***k you, you'll see how imba my threat is.
---- Wipe on wave 3 due to everyone overaggroing the tank----
DK: WTF is wrong with the healer? Noob, l2heal.
Me: It's not the healer's fault. You kept losing aggro.
DK: F***k you.
DK: This is my offspec anyway, people are right, DKs can't tank for crap.
Me: And what is your main spec?
DK: Frost DPS.
Me: What weapons do you have?
-he linked 2x heroic axe from gunship 10-
Me: Can't you try using those this time?
Me: Why not?
DK: I'm not def capped with those.
Me: Then just port to acherus, change runes and then change them back later?
DK: FU noob, omg.
DK leaves the party
Basically yeah. That's why I stopped pugging anything. Idiots like this make me die a little inside.
Those people who lvl Hunters to 55, then a DK to 80 are the best.
I was doing FoS normal on my newly dinged mage last night with my friend and as soon as we zone into the dungeon the shaman healer asks me if I need the staff from the final boss. Blood Boiled Lancet I think.
Granted, it was an upgrade from my MH and OH but I would rather stick with a MH+OH than have a staff (personal preference and I aim to get pvp geared anyway), and so naturally I say I don't want it. He calls me a 'lyer' and says how it's a much better than my current weapons but I just decide to ignore what he said and I don't reply or comment for the rest of the run.
So we get to the final boss corridor and I die, as well as my friend, and the tank drops to about 1k health so I'm expecting a wipe and I ress run. It wasn't a wipe but the tank did die, dots killed the mob I think, and everyone got ressed but of course I am running through the dungeon, and as I come up to the rest of the group I find from my friend that there was an attempted kick against me. But that wasn't the best bit.
The healer comes out with this absolutely golden comment, quoted word for word;
"if u need the staff, go ahead, be a ninja, I will just come to your realm and ruin your reputation on Outland"
I was so hilariously baffled by that. Throughout the whole run I had done nothing to warrant the attempted kick or that comment, I was in the top 2 dps with my friend, had used CC on some of the packs as the tank was slightly undergeared, and I had been polite and provided food to those who asked. As well as the fact that I have no reputation on the realm, I'm a newly dinged 80 and I don't raid on my main so people won't even care who I am, let alone that I would 'ninja' an item from a normal dungeon. I also don't know how shamans gear themselves but I'm pretty sure the staff isn't itemised well for either shaman or mage.
I supposed it's not a bad experience; but literally being threatened over an item, poorly may I add, is definitely one of my more WTF moments in the dungeon tool.

I can't stand people like that, like an hour ago I asked a lvl 60 DK I found on /who tirisfal to boost me 1 run in SM:armory so I'd get quest completed + a level up, and surprise: He didn't know where SM was <.< . I died a little inside there.
There should be an option to queue for ret-free, dk-free dungeons. In my personal experience, the three most common classes that have catastrophic nooby mistakes are palys, dks, and hunters... but often the terribad hunters aren't completely arrogant and will actually LISTEN TO MY ADVICE.
The rets/dk's... that's another story. They tell me "shut the fuck up fag i no wut im doin!" I'd gladly add another 2 seconds onto my tank queue time if it meant I never had to speak to/play with another terribad, spell power spec dk/ret again.
My experience with the LFd tool have been a mixture of ups and downs. But probably the worst one was on my 66 blood dk. We had a pally as a tank and he was having a real hard time keeping aggro, complaining about everyones dps etc. We get to the first boss in Auchindown and he wipes within a min so i take over and finish the boss with ease. I've never tanked or anything but i got a hold of the boss and we finished and then the tank started complaining about my dps. He said that I was only pulling 100. so i linked the recount. something like 1100 dps and second right behind a mage in the group.... Long story short tank ragequits after using some really mean words.
Tanks? where are they? No but really.... to all you tanks who are out there.... Thank You.
other than that randoms go ok
Thank you Kenz for this amazing signature!
so many people here complaining about tanks. most tanks that go in for these randoms are tired of being tops dps. sorry I have better things to do than drag around your 500dps, full boa, mostly afk, scrub alt. inc next 4 packs /leave dungeon CATCH!
i normally dont complain about "bad" players, but yesterday just baffled me ;-)
i get into FoS HC with my 4p t10 rest icc gear and i see the tank is a DK, so als always i started inspecting him.
i see his health is just over 20k..... thats less than my mage....
he is in full blue crafted lvl 78 tanking gear, no gems, no enchants.
he is only using 1 crafted 1h tank sword, no offhand.
slightly scared we start. he pulls the 1st caster at the start and gets 2 shotted :P shaman puts down earth elemental that goes slower down than the tank.
tank ofcourse blaming healer, but group fell apart rather quick after that
i was like WTF!! how can a tank be so badly geared and still get into FoS HC
Probably my worst experiences ever happened on my alt. Yeah funny cause you think a lvl 80 Hunter would get more crap. But apparently my Holy Paladin was a better target. Now, truthfully, I was new to healing and only rolled one for my guild. I've always told groups I was new and most of them were nice about it ( save one gnome Rogue who forever will ruin Wailing Caverns for me ). Then of course when I tried rolling a mage with my other friend, things went astray. There was one incident that stood out.
The Day That The DPS And Healer Switched Places On Us
Ah, Wailing Caverns. No matter what class I play, you disappoint me. So it was me, my Shaman friend, and a bunch of nelf druids running through the dungeon. I have never rolled a druid before so I don't try to act like I know how druids play. But at least I know how they fail at their class. The healing druid was being so fickle on his healing. He would let us get near the brink of death before he would start healing. We've wiped a boss for a bit because he was not paying any sort of attention. Then one of the dps druids decides on his own that he and the fail healer were going to switch places.
My friend and I were chatting on Skype during all of this. I noticed the switch, seeing as how we were getting our asses mauled by every mob in there. We both tried to tell them to switch back but the healing druid refused to talk to us. After like an hour, we actually finished the dungeon.
I don't ever have good experiences with druids :<
I ended up in a random with a Mage that needed on everything he could (from doucherock land of the wanna be pvp gods) whohad decent enough gear but was gemming every blue gem with arp/stam gems. While beating him on damage done on my tank (in dps gear, yeah I'm that guy on my dk but it was a guild group and it was old kingdom with my girlfriend disc priest healing so not exactly "rough") he started bitching about the other dps'ers being fail. This is when I "kindly" pointed out his choice in gems and had to watch him try to explain that armor pen is awesome because it makes your spells go through the targets armor. This obviously went over swimmingly and as he was the only pug we waited il the timer was up and kicked him right before the last boss as he complained about us being bads.
