If I may be first...

*as BrM, rolls on agility item, wins it*

DPS: WTF TANK THATS A DPS ITEM
Me: Brewmasters use agility as their stat, not strength
DPS: LOL VOTEKICK THIS NOOB, NINJA'D MY ITEM, DOESNT KNOW HOW TO TANK

"You took the least amount of damage in the fight you're a bad tank."
"You did more healing than me during that fight, you're a bad tank"
"You did more dps than me, you're a bad tank."

I had this one happen to me...three bosses into the dungeon. I'm so terrible that it took me that long to fail.

I decided to make it hard on myself by only starting BrM at level 90. Gearing up, I ran into a lot of it.

The most memorable instance of this was on Vizier Jin'bak, after he dropped the neckpiece I needed. Druid raised a huge stink after I won the item, and apparently he had two guildies with him who were after the same piece of gear for him (they both need rolled on it, apparently). They tried to votekick me, but it failed, as one of the premade was a pretty cool guy and agreed with me. Two of them left, the guy who voted against the kick apologized and left as well. Twas a fun night.

If you -really- want to get them mad, get them to vote kick their own guildy. It's funny as hell when it works. :D I had some guys being complete <words that may get me forum banned here> to the tank in the group, who happened to be in a premade group (Tank was the fourth, not with them, I was the fifth) and they didn't realise that, if you're in a premade group, you need a 4/5, not 3/5 majority to vote kick. They thought the tank was undergeared, despite him doing fine and I was like "No, he's doing fine, leave him alone, he's just here to get geared" and kept trying to vote kick him, and I assume, me as well. I kept rejecting all the vote kicks, I assume the tank was rejecting any on me because I wasn't being kicked, then when it came to the last group, they left an ultimatum. Either the tank leaves, or they sit outside the boss's room and refuse to pull (I think one of them was the healer, or else I'd have been like "Sure, works for me" and pulled anyway).

So I threw up a vote kick on one of the pre-made-group-morons with the reason "crappy tank". It went through. The rage was legendary. The other two both dropped soon after and we finished the last boss without any problems.

Tonight I had a mage pulling trash. The trash that was hidden around corners and such.

Normally I don't mind picking up stuff if there are newbs in the group but this guy kept pulling.

So I did the you pull it you tank it move and went on. The healer yells at me, "do your &#&#ing job and tank you idiot"

/facepalm How do people like this exist in the world?

Edit: Oh yeah, hey also commented how I was stupid for not stacking dodge, as it's my best stat.

- Why are you needing on that trinket? It has mastery?

- Why are you needing on a 2h weapon?

I have a theory that all dps secretly wants to tank - that's why they always know how to do it better than we do.

"Can you heal (or DPS) for this 1-tank fight?"

I hope to hear that less often in T15.

*when asked for the fourth time to turn off the damn growl*

I've had this said to me as a tank and watched a lot of tanks have this said to them. It makes me wish I could kill my own faction. A couple of hunters like that though I had fun shielding and pulling them into anything harmful I could find as I ran through it, the worse the better. After a few deaths they either left or turned off growl - go figure.

"I need mana"


When the rest of the group who isn't uber asked why they died I'll point right at you...

I've had a couple very geared tanks get themselves into problems and whether or not I save them boils down to whether they let me drink or just dragged me through oom. Can't heal when I got nothing left.

I'll link the flash heal being top heal, and losing to the tank in heals while "oom".

Oh, and I actually got asked this tonight
