Because we’ve been fail-PuG free on this blog for just a little too long, I present:
WTF what?! Am I supposed to read your mind? Clearly you’re either puzzled, amazed, or annoyed by something, but when I can’t even figure out what emotion you’re emoting, it’s pretty difficult to respond correctly. How about you remember those linguistic skills that were drilled into you since elementary school and squeeze out a complete sentence? Hmm?
Here are some examples if you find it hard: “Ubartank, did you really *need* those spellpower bracers?” “Fragilemage, how did you die this time?” “Leetfacehunter, you might wanna let the tank pull…” “Wow that was a huge crit, Boomkinpants!”
See, it’s not hard.
2) ROFL, [Orb of the Forgotten Seer]…
Last time I checked, there was no gearscore requirement for Maraudon (for that matter, there’s no gearscore requirement for anything, but that’s a rant for another day…). Also, I didn’t sign up to heal this shindig so you could inspect and insult me the moment I zone in. This seems to be getting a lot more frequent the more I pug. Everybody immediately inspects each other and then starts waving their teeny tiny level 38 epeens like they mean something. I might bring it up if the tank is running with a grey two hander, or wearing all spirit cloth… but that’s about it. Is my choice of a cunning pet at level 19 going to wipe the group? Probably not… EJ is for 80s.
3) Refusing to Buff
I just do not get this one. Pallies are by far the worst offenders, followed by mages. Pallies I sorta understand, since they have a metric ton of buffs which all have to be applied individually and nobody’s ever happy with the one they get… but face it, you’re going to be applying those same buffs for the rest of your pallying career. Better get used to it. Oh, and learn who wants what now, so you don’t look like a total tard when you zone into a heroic and buff the hunter with wis and the priest with might (what, hunters have mana, and priests use weapons… right??!) And mages? You’re just lazy. One buff fits all. Just slap it on there. Feel free to skip warriors, rogues, and dks.
Why wouldn’t you want to be better? Why wouldn’t you want your *healer* to be better?
4) i dun has rez lol
The conversation usually goes something like this:
“You don’t have res? But but but but but… you’re a [priest/druid/shaman/pally]!”
“im not healz”
*points to healer* “the healer’s dead.”
“i didnt have the gold to train it… im not healz”
Again, pallies are by far the worst offenders. God forbid they should go do a level 12 quest. Oh the horror. I am so cruel to even suggest it.
So what PuG faux pas really drive you bananas? Everybody needs a good rant now and then…
