I just had an odd experience and I figured it belonged here.
I've got a baby priest-- lvl 17-- that I queued for a random for the first time last night. So, you know, I don't expect the people I'll be put with to be veterans-- for all I know, it's their first time in an instance. I don't mind if they don't know what they're doing, you know? Anyway. Port in halfway through-- never a good sign. Finish it just fine, they decide to queue for another, I figure hey, why not.
We're in Ragefire Chasm and I notice that the DPS are... wandering. Mostly to go pick herbs, but there's this pally who goes off and pulls his own mobs. I don't really mind; he's not out of range, I can keep an eye on both him and the tank. After a little while it develops that our tank doesn't know where to go, and one of the DPS leads the way for a bit. The group is following in a line, and so I don't notice at first that the pally isn't following-- I just figured he was at the back of the line. Nope.
I say something a couple of times, asking where he's gone off to, get no response. Not really worried until his health drops dramatically, at which point I say something to the effect of "hey, can't heal you if I don't know where you are."
At this point one of the other people in group informs me that the pally had whispered her to say that he wandered off because he "hates heals" and that he had said some very rude things, including "never heal me again." Several things about this bother me:
1. Who hates heals?
2. Okay, so, you don't want the healer to heal you. Why queue for a random? The random healer is not going to know that you don't want them to do their job.
3. IF you queue for a random, and you don't want the healer to heal you... inform them of this fact? I mean, if he'd said "hey, don't heal me" I'd have been confused but I might have done what he wanted.
I'm confused, but whatever. Then the pally starts trying to queue the group for another instance (though we had not yet finished the one we were in). And the group doesn't understand why I don't want to go again with them. I tell them "I don't want to be in a group where one member has made it clear they don't want me here." I had every intention of finishing the dungeon, but even after I said this, I got two more "confirm your role!" things in rapid succession.
Too much of a headache. No wonder your last healer left.
