A million times this.

Had a terribad DK the other day spamming taunt on Durumu get upset when he was told to stop so he doesn't make the boss taunt immune for swaps. Proceeded to say his taunt was "broken" on Primordius intending to kill me. Solotanked the boss and his whispers of LOL U GON' DIE went to YOU'RE LUCKY WE HAVE GOOD HEALERS.

Waiting for a Nalak group to fill, I happen to be standing mounted on a slgiht angle so my mount is leaning with its head stuck in the floor. Some druid in the group starts whispering me telling me to move, and how it looks stupid stood there, and I need to move onto flat ground... Of course I try to find an even more ridiculous position to stand in, and they keep whispering as if I didn't understand what they meant. :lol:

I don't even know why it would bother them.

So, leveling the gnomewarlockproject last night...

Get into a group that has a tank and healer from the Kel'Thuwhatever server. Tank is chain-pulling, healer only heals him, I die and they keep on moving, ask for a rez (It's steamvaults, so it's a long run) but they keep on going. When it's clear they aren't going to stop, I run back, meanwhile the other two dps are dead as well, and they are still going. So at this point I just tag along, far enough back that I get xp but I'm not in aggro range. They notice, and start dragging bosses to me. Soulstone ftw. We complete the dungeon that way, meanwhile they continue to make comments "they asked for a rez, that isn't in my spellbook, perhaps they meant a res?... " and so on.

Is the rest of that server like that?.. They really are full of themselves.

But at least they cleared the dungeon for me, :lol:

Why would you do Steamvault while leveling? °_°

First, it's available at 67, and can't do UP till 68.

Second, the mob density and quests make it good for leveling.

Third, it's far less painful and much faster than Mechanar, Shattered Halls, or Botanica, all which become available at 67.

And get the same one 6 times in a row?

If there's a dungeon that I haven't done that, I'll always queue specifically for that, ensuring that I get one with quests to do if there is one. Pre-70, I wind up hardly ever repeating one, and often can skip the ones I hate.

Aside from 'trolls be trollin, mon', I don't understand why they wouldn't just 2 man them by running in, since they'd also get all the loot that way.

Heck, I'm having a blast soloing stuff.

Because travelling to instance entrances takes effort, just like healing people other than yourself and your pet tank.

It's rare, but still distressing when people in random groups behave like complete jerks. However, the vote kick mechanism does provide some social sanction. The three dead dps could have kicked the trolling healer and tank. The social norms in WoW are actually quite strong and often you'll find people agree on what behaviour can be characterised as that of a complete jerk[1]. It's when you are the minority in a group of 3 or 4 from the same guild that you have be careful. Even then, your ignore list can provide protection against being subject to the same trolls again.


[1]A loud mouthed shaman kept pulling in a Stratholme PuG, refusing to follow the group in clearing out some bosses - that had to be cleared to get to the end - and comically dying/rezzing when left to his own devices. At one point, the healer asked people to wait and the shaman piped up "Why? Are you trying to kick me?" The healer said wearily "If only...". That got me thinking, so I instigated a vote kick - reason for vote kick: "If only...".

When people are behaving like that they'll almost certainly be making sure never to leave combat long enough for a vote kick.

This. Usually, in my experience anyway, folks who are trolling and know they are likely to be kicked will do this. Folks who are just poor players will often have some pauses.

I've also seen a tank and healer team with one dps to kick the other two dps, so more xp could be gained. Works pretty well considering the amount of damage a good tank does in a leveling 5-man.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Piracy is a gray area. I do get some content thru dubious means, including comics and shows, but I end up buying them later on unless I totally dont like the show.

Sherlock BBC? torrented, but now own the Blu-Ray
GoT? same.
Transformers comics? Get them online, then buy the trade paperbacks.
