So, with the new LFG there have been many many good pugs. There have been very few overall bad ones, but there are a few very...ahem.....gifted individuals who stood out.
The first one that I will mention is the 12 year old Deathtard. Mind you, their DPS was very good. We down the boss in one of the new instances that drops the sexy new melee crit trinket. He loses the roll to an Enhancement Shaman. He WIGS THE FUCK OUT.
" What teh fuk, Shaman dont need armor penetration" (Speaking about the on use perhaps).
Shaman: "Last I checked Armor Penetration is good for any melee class"
Deathtard: "I got played by a fuking pimp. You are a bunch of faggot. FUCK YOU."
*Vote to kick Deathtard has passed*
The second one is a Warrior tank that I ran DTK with. Last I checked, I know a few things about how to play a prot warrior. A few pulls in, he is pulling a paltry 1k dps. I look at recount.....and I look again. Zero Revenge. Zero Heroic Strikes. That is odd.
Me: "Hey tank, do you use Revenge at all?"
Tank: "I haven't used it since BWL".
1) Revenge is one of a warrior's best threat and damage abilities.
2) Heroic strike is our rage dump. If you are constantly at full rage you are doing it wrong.
We got through the run ok. Somehow, Shield Slam was only his third highest damage skill. Behind Devastate and Shockwave. I really hope that he was not actually a main tank for a raiding guild. Some people just amaze me.
The third one I wanted to talk about was actually related to me by a pug tank who was actually very good. I got thrown into a random HoR, and the tank starts talking about how he hates tanking this place. I respond that at least he has a sexy tree healing it.
Then he tells me about the last Druid he ran this instance with. The Druid proclaimed himself a "Healing Touch Druid". As in he didnt use hots. He just casted Healing Touch. This has to be a new kind of brain damage. I haven't used Healing Touch without nature's swiftness in like....well EVER. According to the tank, that was the only spell he used. Obviously, the instance did not turn out so well.
If you just want to nuke heal, roll a paladin. Healing Touch is fail.
All three of these three can be found in the wonderful town of Failsville.
