Dear zerger barb,
It was nice of you to 1) start DQ2 locking your own friend, who asked me to save a spot for you, back behind the efreeti gates while he was AFK and 2) locking both him and me, the lone healer type, out of the main fight by talking to the queen and closing the portal.
Thank you also for not talking twice to reset the quest, as I specified in the LFM, and as I reminded the party in party chat once we had six. Yes, I noticed. You were in the sands for an extended amount of time. Then you weren't. Then you were again.
Thank you for wasting my time and those of four others. After you wiped, the sorc managed to divine, by reading general chat, that it was in fact you who started the fight early. He got a reinvite and we duoed it on hard. I know it's not an accomplishment nowadays, but that's exactly the point. There was no need to waste everyone's time.
I guess this is the price I pay for taking the first five/eleven and going, ready to impart whatever knowledge someone else was kind enough to give me. Perhaps in the future, I should be more like your guild, and label these difficult EH quests "selective."
Apologies to the other three innocents in the party for your lost time.
In the time it took to make this post I could have run two more DQ2s.
3/10, would not write again.
