A cautionary tale:
Running my lvl 84 alt in LFG, we had an OP tank (not from Nazgrel) who was making the run of Stonecore very quick and very easy. Well, halfway through, the healer said "I might have to leave before the instance is over."
The so-far-silent tank said "Good."
"Dude, why the negativity?" I asked? His response was a series of diatribes about how the healer was terrible, and how I was terrible (which is quite true. I'm undergeared and am still learning the finer points of my spec), and so forth. His language was colorful and demeaning.
We voted to kick at the next opportunity. Reason: Bad Attitude. After the tank was gone, a dissenter said "Great, 20 minutes before we get to finish the instance" and left group. 20 seconds later, a new DPSer and tank came in and we happily began to finish Stonecore.
Morals of the story:
And if I can add another thought: When people are rude, it's hard not to be rude back. Do call them out, but choose your words carefully. I submit that "Why the negativity?" is more diplomatic and productive than "Shut up, idiot."
So, keep making Nazgrel a better place to play, with your thoughtfulness and kindness!
This OP tank's attitude is exactly why I have yet to use the "looking for" function. I've been away from the game forevah, and am still getting used to things. Seems silly to have to put up with the abuse whilst I'm trying to navigate my way through the new (for me) mechanics. Thanks for the post.
