Dear people from the various Mythic: Everbloom groups I've been part of the past few days,

Yes, it's the same old dungeon, but things hit harder and have more health. *You* didn't get stronger just because it's a harder dungeon; you actually got weaker in the eyes of the dungeon denizens. For whatever reason it felt like a lot of people thought (going by behaviour/attitude) because you were doing a Mythic dungeon you just ... somehow became "Mythic" (whatever that means) yourself.

Tanks: use your damn CDs.

Healers: if you're on 90% mana and we die there was more you could do. Don't give me that "efficient healing" nonsense when we're wiping because you didn't want to spam your inefficient heal on the tank or use a raid CD at "not the right time" (???).

DPS: understand that even if you're the king of LFR you might still be challenged in a dungeon that was designed to be difficult for *you*. "Damage is a bit low" is a blanket statement which means group damage is a bit low - if you took it personally then yeah, it probably applies to you.

Everyone: please do the mechanics if we're undergeared and/or have low damage and/or we're not very good at our classes. 685? 695? 705 item level? None of it means anything if you can't do what is required to kill the boss.

Dear dude,

"Dude" because I don't even remember your name or class, only your actions from that heroic run I didn't finish. I hope you don't treat the women in your real like the way you seem to from our interaction, though I'm sadly sure you do.

Person One: Sorry for my dps, texting people. Why do girls not like wow?
Me, joking (but really): Haha, I'm a girl.
Dude: Are you under 120?
Me: 120 what?
Dude: pounds
Me: Seriously?
Dude: Yeah, you're 300
Me: I'm a yoga instructor, figure it out yourself
Dude: So 300 lbs
Dude: Whats the pose with your pelvis on the ground and your head in the air?
Me: What, you mean sitting?

Look. I know you were talking about cobra/Bhujangasana/whatever you want to call it. But the second you start falling back on sexist jokes about women playing video games, is the second I stop taking you seriously - especially when you try to test me on my own personal knowledge to screw with my head. The "joke" that only fat, ugly women play WoW is old and tired. Whether I fall into either of those categories is irrelevant. Whether you actually believe what you are spewing is irrelevant. It is offensive anyway. I don't give a shit what you think of me, but dude. Stop. You're not funny.

No love,
Another lady sick of the "women don't play WoW" crap

Dear Orgruk - Malorne,

Oh, there's a special place in MMO Hell for you, sir. Using your "insta Q" to get away from a gank, leaving the rest of the group you just took advantage of in the lurch. At least tank the nine-minute dungeon for us while we're here, or don't gloat about your "clever" escape and leave. I would have assumed you just didn't want to do the dungeon if you didn't say anything.

I hope you get corpse-camped all night. I also hope your repair bill is astronomical.

No love at all,
the DK

Dear Blizzard,

Let it be known that henceforth you are forgiven for the Invincible music scroll thing.

Dear leet pvp strategists,

Will you kindly stop throwing the game as soon as the enemy caps a single flag in Warsong Gulch, or gets three bases in Arathi Basin or whatever the equivalent in each battleground?!

That's perfectly possible to come back from!

I wouldn't care if it was just you sitting in the graveyard, at least we could get rid of you by afk reporting your asses. But you then somehow manage to shame and bully half the team into joining you, so the rest of us who actually came here to pvp and not get carried have no other fate than dying horribly against massively superior numbers.

Wishing attacking your own team was allowed,

Dear Blizzard:

Dropping a music scroll named "Invincible" off Heroic 25m Lich King is just WRONG.

Dear healer:
I dunno where the hell you got your sense of entitlement, but being a healer doesn't magically give you the right to decide how my character looks. If you use a reflecting prism on me, I'm gonna click it off. Multiple times. Even when you stop healing me. Even if you make some thinly-veiled threat about 'I'd leave the illusion on if someone else was deciding who lived or died.' And if you keep it up, I will leave. I'm a tank. My queues are instant. Can the same be said for you?

Kindly choke on the reflecting prism you're so badly abusing,
The Draeneidin
