TRing and looking for groups for everyting on elite only is rough enough.
On my other TR character a WF sorc I had some LFMs up for Elite BB.
'Newbs' join and the following takes place ...
- 'This is taking a while to fill, why not just do hard or normal?'
- 'The LFM said Elite'
- 'Why does it matter?'
- 'More EXP with BB'
- 'Whats BB?'
- 'Bravery Bonus'
- 'What does that do?'
- 'An extra 50% EXP'
- 'WOW, so is that just for elite then? Not normal or Hard?'
^^ And thats being extra kind to the 'newb' comments in that situation, most just simply wont listen and continue whining about wanting to do norm or hard instead, even though the LFM they joined said Elite BB.
OFC I was a newb and a noob once as everyone was, but I tried ... I mean, still try my hardest to listen and learn
TRing anything other than a Pale Master, WF sorc, FVS or Cleric would be incredibly rough for levelling up to me.

English is not my first language - misinterpretations galore !
even though i very much enjoy running with a group that knows the quest well, with few if any hiccups, i just get a bad vibe from those LFMs.
BTW, noobs post "know it" in their LFMs as well, so it's not a sign people know what they're doing.
Yeah, I kinda view "know it" lfms like "TRs/Vets only" and avoid them.
I love those LFMs, usually "Guide Needed" is the part they forget to type.

So, hopped on my Sorc and see a Partycrashers elite run. I join, and there's one slot left and we have:
I suggest wizard for buffs for the last slot and the Party Leader starts ranting about how Wizards suck and Sorc are far better. I patiently explain Wizards are more durable and have better DCs than Sorc, not to mention more spells, and the Party leader ignores everything I say and repeats the same thing in different words over and over. We're a little ways inside the quest now, to first trap. The Leader, being a Rog, is like. "I got this." She runs straight into the trap and DING. I facepalm and drop group, because everyone was standing there like, "What are we going to do now?"
Madness....YESZ! THIS! IS! XORIAT!
I avoid IP runs as well, but that's more because I hate playing catch up and losing out on xp and loot at the same time. Unless you catch the very beginning of the run, there's no guarantee that you'll make up the penalty. The exception is of course, loot runs for lower level raids like VoN. I don't care when I join those.
It was the night before Hogswatch....
Optimus Prime/Grimlock 2016 Because in diplomacy, sending in the Dinobots is the only answer.
I click some LFM.... *crickets*
click other LFM... *crickets*
move to other LFM... *crickets*
Then after 1-2 minutes I've being accepted.
Err, which quest?
Well, usually if the group is no longer in the panel, I ask and try to explain with something like "Hi, I clicked on various LFMs.. which quest is it?"
~Miahoo all around!~
To all my friends: I Troll! Deal with it! You still hate me!
So this isn't as much a noob moment as an utter fail moment. I'd been running in a good number of epics the past few weeks, so decided to collect my epic tokens from various toons and fill an epic slot for my tank. Everything was fine - grab tokens, change fragments to tokens, exchange tokens for an augment crystal, grab a catalyst...
Then I realised I'd picked up a blue catalyst instead of the green one I intended to. Okay, no problem. Grab a green catalyst. Destroy the blue one (I tend to destroy things like arrows or gems if I'm not near a shop) and head to the altar. Start putting in the things. Click "Forge"... And get back a fail. After checking, I realised that I'd put both blue and green catalysts in with my item. Meaning I'd just destroyed an augment crystal worth 30 epic tokens.
I did try to check buyback from the vendors, but to no avail. So it was just an utter fail moment. Way to waste 30 epic tokens!

Quest: VoN 2 (The Prisoner) Elite at level ...
Party: balanced, 3 TRs with me as primary melee guy (others are rangers)
Before the quest I ask: "Did they fix the high charisma damage from the spiders?" (Quori stalkers)
They say: "what charisma damage?" "you must have been hit multiple times"
We enter the quest, proceed to kill the beholders first and start gathering the quests items.
Since I have healing potions, I start going alone up the ladder to the aforementioned spiders. I carefully (trying to dodge their attacks) engage them in melee but quickly get hit by charisma damage: (Combat) Quori stalker hits you for 24 Charisma damage.
Since I am a lvl 9 barbarian, my charisma is not high enough to sustain such damage. At 0 charisma I can only run away, I can't chug lesser restoration potions or keep fighting.
So I run like a rabbit to heal my charisma over time (thank you DDO) and tell the party members about my misadventure, showing them the very high charisma damage I suffered from the evil spiders.
To that, the lvl 8 TR cleric (who doesn't have neither RS I nor Restoration) answers: "the DM (Turbine) gave us the everything we need to overcome this obstacle (e.g. a cleric spamming lesser restoration on the melee) so there is nothing wrong."
A lvl 10 dungeon where monsters render you unable to do anything but run away to heal overtime, with only one hit?
Even in the IQ quests where we encounter the same type of charisma eating monsters, they can't do this that fast.
