How do you guys stay sane!?

I'm a pretty dedicated tank/healer. But for the heck of it, I decided to level a warlock alt that I had lying around.

Every time I join a dungeon queue, it's at least 15 minutes, sometimes climbing to 30. I'm used to instant or near-instant queues. How do you guys manage to stay sane with that long a wait?!

...and this is exactly why I still play healers or tanks, but mostly healers because I don't like the hassle of tanking.

Are you implying that I am sane, because I assure you sir that I am not. I either grind dailies, farm, fish, or tab out and do other stuff until I hear that particular sound.

Now imagine waiting that long and then getting stuck in a group that, for whatever reason, is a horrible experience for you.

You have to wait 30m for the privilege of wiping over and over again! Congratulations!

Know my pain. Also, Sanity is DRASTICALLY over-rated.

Have you read some of the threads and replies by the people in the DD forums. It's clear that all DPS are clinically insane, using the DD forums as the sample size.

i'm betting the wait time for dps would drop significantly if pures had a 4th hybrid spec.

I hate the wait time as well, i usually play tank or heals, but damn i do want to gear up my pures too... too bad i couldn't just play a different roll and ask to roll on gear for my offspec.

or waiting another 15-30 minutes when the tank decides he doesn't want to do Well of eternity. I still need that axe FFS! Knock it off or I will stab you over and over in the back with my red hot pokey, drag it along your cheeks and leave you with everlasting scars!

...Oh god...its happeneing...my sanity is leaving me. Someone please, I need help.

Scenarios might do this too. Pretty certain you can get 5-man based rewards from them, and they don't have role preferences

Generally I either pursue archeology or farm herbs while waiting in queue. 15 minutes honestly isn't that long. I remember waiting well over 90 minutes to get into Alterac Valley back in vanilla.

I fill my fridge with blocks of cheese while I wait, so that when the evil Mouse King's army takes over the Earth they will spare me.

Phew, I thought I was the only one. At least I know I'm not crazy now.

Simple. I only queue when I have friends online that happen to play a tank or healer. Otherwise, to the battlegrounds I go! (Or, God forbid, the occasional trade chat pug that is doomed to fail on Morchock because the CONTENT HASN'T BEEN OUT FOR A YEAR AND NERFED TO LAUGHABLE DIFFICULTY!!!)

Tank queues are that fast for you? Lucky.

Healing queues are near instant for me, but tank and dps are both about the same.

Can't wait for tuesday so I can group with friends again and not have to worry about stupid queues.
