Blur comes on gear, which my melee has.
Haste comes in pots and clickies, even wind stand if you have it like my monk splashed melee.
Rage is meh, and it gets over ridden by my melees defensive fighting and bulwark of defense.
You don't need any of those buffs from an arcane, they aren't mandatory for anything and you can get them yourself.
It was a BYOH group, if you get incapped it's likely your BYOH isn't quite up to scratch, it's also a possibility that healing type classes may not heal you in a pinch.
One of the great things about these groups though is occasionally you can be surprised by the versatility and resourcefulness of players and can be pleasantly surprised by what some toons not of a healing class are capable of.
Smallmans Syndrome, Rovac, Dragnipur, Prettyhater Machine, Lubed, Castinfist
Emmpeethree, Hyperkill Hyperthrill and Greyvegas (All on Khyber)
I often write/speak as someone who neglect reality to get to my point because it's the only way I found to stand apart being superficial and not honest. Now when it comes to DDO's playerbase, I just wanna get straight to the point. I don't know what happened in the lifespan of the game or at which moment things went so wrong within the community. Maybe is it the difficulty (which is kind of easy compared to other games) has been taken for granted by too many people or the voice chat allows big mouths to look tougher and that permits them in a way to do just what you showed with your exemple. It's not just DDO, but i've seen awful exemples like this one playing this game. Like people who can't wait 5 secs for someone to recall before starting to yell bs... really?
In my dream world filled with pretty unicorns, those kinds of players wouldn't get mixed together. Because, how people treat each other (worse over the internet), you just can't fix that, it's already too late in the era. But trying to bring people like-minded together is still possible. May it would be a carebear (chose your word) private channel, a section on the forum for laid-back people that they would use for real... anything so this kind of situation just doesn't happen (they will anyway from time to time, I know). It starts with the respect of each other and Turbine can't fix that so players have to find a work around themselves even if it sucks. And i'm sure it's possible. Here it's not just skill level i'm talking about but mostly attitude. Though, in your exemple, if everyone would have been pros that can't die, I think it might not have happened like that.
Anyways, internet people will never stop to surprise me. I mean ***... the least you can do after verbaly abusing or just seeing it happened before your eyes to a kid who seems harmless for +/- 30mins is have the conscience to, I don't know, be sorry? help him out? tell him how ****** your day was and that it was not him? Just lie if you need to but man... how can people find satisfaction in beating on helpless people. I've seen it before and if can sense that the guy doing the harm is just not like that everyday in RL, I would try to argue with him. By no mean I think it would have a life changing impact, but some people needs to realize what they're doing when it's so wrong. And they don't always do realize it because they're occupied fullfilling their own needs and just can't move away from that road. At least it could have a positive impact on the one that's taking the beatdown. Feeling alone somewhat sucks for many people and it might even haunt their life (semi-exaggerating but I think it's true).
Have to add though that I have also seen some of the most pleasant people to hang with during an e-playing session in DDO. I would think the game being easier would actually attract more of that kind honestly.
Hard to believe you're the only one who sticked with him or tried to do something the whole time. That's 10 people that doesn't understand what life is all about. Too bad for them... and to many people that will encounter them, unfortunately. Oh well, just another day in the online world. Classic. But to you, well done.
Have a good day.
Edit: I found this more important then the actual thread. Now BYOH's time.

Leave it to the BYOH thread to get 4,000 views and 200 replies in two days.
It's like flies to s**t.
If it's a BYOH group then its a BYOH group. The cleric is obliged to heal...him/herself. Anything else she/he does is them being nice, it isn't even close to required.
And no, in D&D a cleric does not take an oath to heal because they are not meant to be just healbots. Or are you suggesting all Bards, Druids, Rangers, and Palidins have to heal as well since they have healing spells too?
Dude, heal yourself.

As for complaining about clerics that don't heal, either you had a bad cleric in your group, were below level 6, or you weren't standing close enough to them. The good ones heal all the time...stand closer and you'll get in on the love.

The question is not can you provide it yourself, The question is: If you asked an Arcane for a buff, would you think it was good social grace for the Arcane to make a fuss they are not a buff bot?
My Answer would be: Depends on how the person asked for the buff. If the person asked politely for a buff, I would be a bit taken aback by the arcane getting snarky about it, if the person asking for the buff was a jerk and demanding that the arcane buff them, I would expect the Arcane to tell them in to die in a fire.
I play to have some fun, and waiting is not fun for me, needing others to take care me, is not fun, begging and pleading for heals and buffs,is not fun. So, I build to cover my own and in some cases (Depends on the build) I can even cover others a bit, because that increases my fun in this game.
Game on and lets have some fun.
