Just had this group in H WoE.
Tank is a prot pally, 1/2 in Pursuit(this is important). On the trash leading up to the first boss, he is getting beaten like there is no tomorrow. I just think, low gear or something, so I inspect. a Cursory look shows nope, good purples and gemmed. On the first trash pack he lost aggro to the Shaman, who quickly takes a dirt nap, then complains(again, important).
After the trash me move to the first boss, tank then posts the eyes achieve and announces we are doing it. I don't really think much of it, but when the time comes....everyone scatters to the 4 winds and I am off chasing the Warlock to heal us up. The eyes come out, and I get cornered, eye blows on me....boss kills me before the stun ends and the tank is running across half the courtyard to taunt. Warlock then BR's me and we finish the fight.
While drinking I take a closer look at him, he has 17 crit rating and minor run speed meta gem(is this one even possible? nevertheless, it doesn't stack with Pursuit), a bunch of str hybrid gems, 2 stam trinkets and ZERO enchants. So that explains the squishyness...
On the trash up to Azshara he is getting hit like a truck, and in general making my job stressful, especially on the Eyes.
On Azshara he is slow to pick up the activated mages, and I get pally stunned in the fire, which I survive with like 5k hp left, but the tank died due to neglect, and a wipe quickly ensued.
Take two, I pull out all the stops and just start churning out the healing; after pre stacking DA to 30kish, spamming GH and Binding heal like a madman, and liberal use of PW:S, we barely survive and down the boss.
I was talking with Winni this whole time, and we bet which mechanic of the last boss he would fail: she said adds would be ignored, I said moonlight, both of us said he would stand in the fire. Well, he did stand in the fire all right, and he ignored the frakin adds....not that it matter much because he had already decided to do the achieve Without telling anyone, let alone me, and everyone is attacking Mannoroth whilst taking insane fire damage .... so when the adds DID come out, they ate my face.
Take two, he announces he is doing the achieve, all 3 DPS agree(did I mention he was friends with the lock and other pally?) I say no, get ignored.....and they do the Exact same thing.
Between takes two and three, the warlock and shaman start laying into me about how terrible I am, how I jut fail and such. I point out that they are doing the fight Vastly wrong(standing in fire....) and that the tank isn't geared enough to have a BOSS whacking him in the back constantly while standing in fire. Warlock overrides my objections, all of them, saying that it is HIS decision(he was dungeon Guide...) that we do the achieve and that I just suck.
Take three, I just decided to DPS Varo'then myself, PW:S and PoM the tank, and see what happens. Sufficed to say, first firestorm Everyone but me died. Everyone then starts yelling and screaming that I suck and such. While typing out a response that even if they were doing the achieve correctly, I still wouldn't want to do it because without a good tank, its a total nightmare to heal; I get vote kicked.
So, gerr...I need the frakin trinket, and now I'm gonna be stuck using the RDF until WoE pops up again....
Also reported that tank for an inappropriate name.....it was clearly in violation of the naming rules, and I agreed with Winni, he needed to be reported for it.
