I was on Boltsalot, healing a random Vortex Pinnacle group. I eventually noticed that the tank, a Death Knight named ‘Tookillu’, was taking far too much damage.
As I suspected, he had mostly DPS gear. I only saw three tanking items on him. And yet, he thinks this is ‘more than enough’. IT ISN’T.
Yes, I am the healer. That is correct. But it still doesn’t give you any right to make my job even harder, because you’re not geared for your job.
By this time, we were at the first boss. Since Tookillu was taking too much damage, I eventually ran out of mana. Not even Telluric Currents could help me, he was getting hammered that much.
Amazingly, we survived. However, as I was getting mana, Tookillu carried on and pulled two packs of mobs, eventually causing a wipe. I called him something I shouldn’t have, hence why it’s blacked out.
He’s telling me to do my game? He should practice what he’s preaching. And I’m not being ‘rude and unpolite’ (well, not that much). I’m merely pointing out facts in a manner that could be viewed as insulting.
He’s not going to report me. And even if he did, Blizzard would only give me a warning or mute me for a day or two. If Blizzard banned people for being rude, there wouldn’t be anyone playing the game.
And that was it, I left the group. I didn’t get another one after that, as all the tanks seemed to have vanished into thin air.
A word of advice. If you’re going to perform a role in a group, make sure you’re equipped to do it. There are plenty of guides out there (my own preference is Noxxic), so it shouldn’t be too hard to read some.
Anyway, I will leave you with my Recount statistics for this dungeon. Looking at them will show how bad Tookillu was. If he was tank geared, he wouldn’t have taken so much damage, or done so much DPS.
