I had one that announced whenever someone used a major cooldown, and half the raid piled on my ass for useless spamming. So I turned it off without telling them (I wasn't talking to them anyway).

When they wouldn't shut up, bldavis told them I turned it off, but I'd be happy to turn it back on for them.

Of course, this was the same group of geniuses who complained about dying to Hagara ice waves (one of them did it three times!), and thought that bldavis' alt tankadin was a dps, and so berated me because he took more damage than I did.

I can't say I enjoy the very very occasional whisper-spam from rogues using tricks of the trade since the massive threat buff. (OK, you started tricksing me! OK, you gave me +XX,XXX threat! I'll keep that in mind!) I've never thought to yell at them for it, though.

I am the same way. I'd prefer to have them than not, and truth be told, I've yet to be in a raid where raid chat *wasn't* clogged with crap that was far less useful.

Besides, it lets people give me crap when I do things like hit AD or LOH at full health because I fumbled, though usually I'm there first :P

On my rogue I have Tricks macroed to Fan of Knives and I like to sprint into packs of mobs and start spamming it.


Am I doing it right?

Only if you do it before the tanks have pulled.

No other dps got above 25k on Ultraxion in my LFR tonight.

I should have known we were heading for trouble when the raid wiped due to the preceding adds covering the entire platform in pink fire. I've never seen that happen before. It was awful pretty.

I've had this happen to me once. And it was from a healer who was DPS'ing complaining. He went so far as to try to get me vote kicked for spam.

Didn't get round to second half of LFR on my mage until tonight. 20 minute queue. Raid leader is swearing and bitching at people before we've finished zoning in. After Ultraxion, two of the healers have done next to nothing, and one of those gets kicked... and the raid leader gets upset because he was multi-boxing 3 healers. Get through Blackhorn no problem, then on Spine two or three dps refuse to stop and just kill the Amalgs as fast as they can. Pretty much everyone ditched group at that point.

Edit: And I forgot, before Ultraxion, the trash evaded and reset and we had to do it over again!

Edit2: Second group = THE ENTIRE PLATFORM IS ON FIRE AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

It's usually not that bad. I'm guessing the fail was mainly just from it being the last night of the week.

I've been in runs like that as early as friday. both early and late in the evening.

like 'after 2 consecutive wipes on Ultrax trash and then 3 on Ultrax himself I went to bed crying myself to sleep' bad. I still shudder at the thought. :cry:

hmm, I think I'm gonna go slow down the levelling now tbh.

I found dpsing in LFR no longer relaxing because of the worsening performance of your average PUG. I finally tanked all of LFR on my warrior alt and found it much more fun. You have more control over how a fight goes, for good or ill. And I suspect people listen to you more when talking tactics if you are the main tank. It also reminded me of why I so much prefer tanking to other roles. It's just more thrilling to have the boss trying to stomp the life out of you than to be hitting him from behind.

My only dilemma is that I keep getting 3/8s first and so second time in, I feel so guilty leaving the raid before the last boss. They've become "my raid" after 3 kills; I guess I should just stay with them even if I can't loot the last boss.
