What's wrong with people running HoX? I know it's the most wipe-able pug raid but c'mon. My 2 of 3 last HoX's were wipes, because we had newbies in party and leaders didn't care to explain what to do, or people thougth they can pike in middle after dogs are charmed. I had to host a HoX raid and spam /p chat asking if anyone is new to this so I can explain what to do, but still we had problems with beholder trash dispelling dogs.
Hard VoD? You think it's good time for leader to ask who can tank,just before we step into quest? And why does dps neglect trash alert SCREAMED into /p by healers?
dps:I dps sally so we will finish faster,
healer: get trash off me!,
healer: after kiting for eternity, ding!
dps: nab hjeals, cant hjeal. ding!
But last night I had the most depressing experience with cannith pugs.
Elite Tempest Spine. Around 3-4 TR's, including me. Some melee dps, 2 clerics, wiz, sorc, bard. Party seemed OK. Before everyone steps into the quest, someone starts to running through fire eles. Party seperates, someone is lost, no biggie, I step out to navigate the person.
All things go smoothly, fire and ice a bit roughly done, then party starts to fall apart. At this point leader is mute, doesn't help with directions for newbies (yes, we had few 1st timers, at this point I realised that), people get lost, die. Few people run ahead and pretty much clear whole quest while rest tries to catch up. TR'd barb constantly asks for heals and haste while he zergs with us while other TR rogue and me burn through hp and haste pots.
After a while, we make it to last boss. Clerics didn't prepare FoM. No biggie, puzzle is done quite fast, but where are the runes?! Guy who was supposed to do them is blown from the ledge... clerics can't even heal themselves, said barb floods chat for runes/heals/rezz, people die, total chaos, I try to grab as many stones and shrine them. At this point only rogue, myself and lost wiz are alive. We try to dps and sorjeck gets to around 1/2 hp when, again, all but me and rogue, are dead, barb screaming for rezz and stupid 'rune guy'... wipe inevitable...
At this point I engage into /ragemode fueled by few beers that I drank that night.
I say some heavy words, for which I am sorry. Very mature to rage at people in the internet, I know...
I mute some dumb people, for which I am NOT sorry.
I go afk just to see how, 1 by 1 people are releasing and leaving party.
Over one hour of elite TS and wipe.
I wonder how,
I wonder why...
