I decided over the weekend, as I was burned out over epics and raids, to play a lowbie. Having never played monk before, I did some research and rolled one up and started at 4. My guildies were all at 20, so I PUGed. After joining about 8 different groups and staying with them for varying degrees of time, I have to say there seem to be alot less friendly people than when I started.
For instance, when I suggested that the ranger with 47 hit points might reconsider using a longbow/shortbow instead of a crossbow, i got a "st*u noob" comment back (while i had 147 hp at the time). Needless to say, I dropped group and moved on.
Another time, I grouped with one nice rogue who tended to talk way too much and seemed to be fairly new. But he seemed nice enough and I quietly enjoyed his excitement at the low level loot. He also appreciated that I could open elite and appreciated that I could help him through it. However, after inviting him to our guild ship ship and finishing one quest, we discussed the next quest and agreed. I arrived at the quest entrance and the rogue (using voice the whole time, not chat) said, "OK, I'm at the portal for the ship". I informed him (by chat) that we still had 40 minutes left on buffs and that we could complete the next quest with time left on the ship buffs. He repeated his statement and nothing I said seemed to change his mind. I went ahead and reinvited him to the ship and decided if this happened again, I would move on. A second rogue joined our group for the next quest, and this second rogue made a couple of boneheaded decisions and the voice rogue lost it and called him a noob repeatedly. He dropped group after the end of the quest before I had a chance to excuse myself.
There are other examples which are even less interesting than these, but it just makes me wonder, 'Do all of the new players automatically believe one month makes them an expert?" I know there is a "noob stupid remark of the week" thread, but I dislike the rather rude title and my comments are solely directed at Orien players. I thought this might be a good opportunity for some humor of other examples from you guys (and gals?) of clearly clueless players acting foolishly.
