Today I had to answer the phone for a job interview and I asked the warrior to respec prot and tank for a bit, which he did. When I got back I saw two things
1. I was number two on the damage meter with 28% damage done
2. Three members of the group were trying to get me kicked
The first a mage with boa gear doing 315 dps, the second a rogue with decent blues doing like 390 dps and the healer.
What gives? Even though I was afk for about fifteen minutes I put in more effort than they did (I refuse to believe a mage in boas at level 56 caps out on dps at just over 300) and put in a lot of effort every dungeon... sort of, but definitely more than these half afk dpsers who end up doing 9% of the groups damage despite queing as damage dealers.
