Queued up on my druid… got Oculus of all places. Cool, she still needs to ride a green drake for the experienced drake rider – [and I’m not going to ask for the voids in a pug]. As a tank and as a healer, I’ve helped numerous people – guildie and non, get this achievement. It’s a small thing that can make someone’s day. So I do what I expect pugs to do – and ask in party if anyone minds me getting the green drake as it’s the last one I need for the achievement. No one objects and we begin. We down the first boss without incident, I snag my green drake and move to the middle platform. In the middle of the second pull, the healer asks
“y u got gren drak?”
I reply that as I said earlier it was the last one I needed for the experienced drake rider achievement and I really would like to get that done if possible.
“Earlier in party.”
“In party chat”
I do notice that I stop getting heals from aoe damage. Okay, cool. I have cooldowns as a kitty and I can heal myself if need be. The healer does actually heal me on the bosses…. I guess my 6-7k boss fight dps was important since the two locks in party were doing 1300 each, but who knows?
We fly through the instance – get to the last boss, get up there and begin. Since the healer insisted on staying on a green drake, I figured I’d keep the damage debuff up on the boss and let her handle her forte – the healing. Well, mid fight she stops healing anyone but herself – so I start healing. She’s sitting off the the side firing the poison at the boss – that’s it. Boss goes down handily as everyone obviously knows what to do. We land and loot… just in time to see the healer diving into a group of whelps and dying… to try and kill me apparently. I looted the chest and dropped group so fast – ended up in Dalaran with 200 health left.
Seriously, what was the point? I wasn’t asking for anything extraordinary, and no one else had issue with it. I’ve swapped with someone who needed the green or red a number of times in oculus – since I get that all the time as a random and as long as they asked nicely, was more than happy to do it.
