I just did a Temple of the Jade servent. Anyways, I made fairly large pulls - all trash before each boss, except on Sha of Doubt, where I pulled the 3 trash and the boss together. Apparently the healer was AFK or had some sort of a connection issue. Everyone but me died and I soloed the Sha.
After the dungeon, one of the players, a rogue was quite displeased with me. He did die twice during that fight (I did brez him but he was unable to keep himself alive) and I believe one more time (dps-ed before I had aggro on all of the mobs). In my defense, I did not expect the healer to be AFK (no dispels) and the mage in our group did not dispel, despite having the ability to do so.
Edit: Apparently not possible for mage to remove curse
Edit 2: The healer did say sorry at the end. I think they were having connection issues and DCed? I can't tell though.
This is the first time I have encountered a raider (the rogue) who firmly belongs in the conservative camp. I have always wondered, how many people are of the conservative style? How many are rapid?
Conservative: Wants to avoid death as much as possible. Likes to work with well geared players but at the same time, does not like to die no matter what, even if it substantially slows the dungeon.
Rapid: Accepts death as a risk, pulls rapidly.
VP per hour is often what they are after. I want to emphasize by rapid though, that I mean a player that has carefully analyzed their situation - does not pull more than they can handle, but makes large pulls just at the threshold of what they think they can handle. Occasionally they may misjudge, but usually it leads to a faster run-speed.
What kind of player are you? And how many conservative versus rapid players have you seen?
