I decided to learn how to tank on my little level 27 warrior. My husband has a 25 warlock, so we grouped up and got immediately into an instance.
First minute in, the mage rolls Need on some Moss Agate and the healer goes nuts. Says we aren't continuing if the guy does it again.
Husband makes verbal calming motions toward the party, suggests the mage might not roll Need on Moss Agate, to which the mage replies "But I'm a jewelcrafter."
Mage rolls Need on the next Moss Agate (which of course drops immediately), and husband and I are thinking "Who the hell cares about MOSS AGATE?!"
Healer leaves the instance but not the group and tosses curses and racial slurs at the mage. (Misspelled curses and slurs.)
I decide to report him for his language and say so. The "N" word is never called for.
We have 6 minutes before we can kick him, and I take two of those to fill out my ticket. The hunter continues to trade angry banter with the healer, husband continues to try rational persuasion, and the mage just stands there looking confused with his dumpy draenei squid face.
The hunter mentions you can report people for going afk without dropping group, so I amend my ticket.
At this point, I remember that I'm a jewelcrafter too and should probably roll against the mage from now on except WHO CARES ABOUT MOSS AGATE?!
We finally get to kick the healer, get a new healer, and the new healer drops group immediately without saying a word.
We requeue and guess who our healer is?
And guess how many minutes he has left before we can kick him again?
Yup. Mr. Jerk Baby is back, laughing, and has a 15 minute safety zone. So I say "I guess this group is over," and husband and I drop. We don't really regret leaving the hunter and mage since one spouted insults at the healer for leaving and the other didn't have the sense to pay attention when someone threatened to go postal over a 14-silver-at-the-Auction-House item
that I don't even think you use in JC (correct me if I'm wrong).
Husband says "Well that was a waste of time" and I say "Why don't we queue again? We don't have a debuff and I'm a tank!"
I take the precaution of ignoring Mr. Jerk Baby so we don't get him as heals again, and we requeue to a group that is respectful, thoughtful, and pro. We rush through the instance, and even though it's my first time tanking the healer has no problem holding me up through huge overpulls, and I have few problems keeping aggro.
Oh, and in our second group? We didn't get a single Moss Agate.
Maybe that's why we did so well! :D
