I have 7 toons I try to run through their daily heroic for their frost badges. One of those I run as a healer. One I run as a tank. Five I run as dps [and 2 of these have tank sets]. This morning, I’ve been through 4 heroics already and every single one had a healer with attitude – and at least one dps in each. I’m not kidding. Every Single Healer.
*pulls group of mobs for tank, while tank scrambles to gather them back up*
“Tank, you suck, go to tank school”
“We’ve been in here almost 15 mins! Too SLOW! GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGO!”
*healer goes boomchicken and pulls everything to try and outdps everyone as a healer with a low threat tank* [causing my enhancement shaman self and the ret pally in group to throw tank heals and trash our dps on the meters and get laughed at – not fun].
That has been my morning. And at least 2 of the tanks were new tanks who told me after the fact that they should have just gone dps because they obviously sucked. [One of these was quite good – the other needs a lot of practice].
I know that bad tanks exist – I’ve seen them and blogged about a few. But seriously people – if you want more tanks to ease queue times then how about not freaking out if the run takes an extra five minutes? Or if the tank needs to go a little slower?
In my own guild – LOTS of our members are starting to work on tank sets, but are too terrified of this kind of crap to go into the Dungeon finder as anything but dps.
