Dear Bhm, Portaljockey, and Cowhealz of Stormreaver:
I just wanted some TB rep on my warrior. I was VERY CLOSE to exalted with TB, I figured a heroic dungeon run would be great for finishing it off.
I queue up and get Scarlet Halls. Okay. I run in and ... the entryway is clear. Okay, you must be further in, let me ... a hunter asks where everyone is, but I ignore as I'm running to find you guys. Hunter drops.
I find that everything is clear up to the Armsmaster, and oops, I pull the adds in the hallway, trying to figure out where you are. I'm not really well geared on her, but I know where my cooldowns are, and surprisingly, I manage to kill all 5 of them, on my own. (thank god for rallying cry and potions). I tell you that you can come back now.
2 of you are in Valley of Honor, and one of you is in the Tavern in the Mists, AFK. The paladin is ret, the druid is heals thankfully, and the warlock is DPS. I certainly didn't queue as tank. So the ret was tanking in dps? but now you're out of the instance. And aren't coming back, apparently. Since I'm not lead, I can't take us out of queue, or requeue us. I decide to file a ticket. I am not interested in dropping and getting the debuff.
While I'm doing that, an ele shaman, Garshaman from Lothar, joins, as we've finally apparently requeued. I tell him quickly while I'm filling out the ticket that you all are afk asshats. He does the same thing I did, and pulls the trash in the hallway toward the last boss, but runs back to me. I finally think I filed the ticket and close it, but I die after him. I tell him that I was busy with the ticket, and lay there dead on the ground while I start up another one (looks like the first didn't actually submit). He comes back, and rezzes me.
We discuss, for a while, what to do. Neither of us wants the debuff, or to put another group into this merry band of asshats. I watch the pathers. We realize we can single pull down this hallway, with him hexing and me dpsing. We manage that hallway fine.
Then it's the Scarlet Scholars and Pupils. I taunt and hide for an LoS pull, and then bladestorm like mad. They all die pretty quickly. I don't have Bladestorm for the next set, but we pull and get them down in relatively short order (Thank you, Victory Rush!). I decide to go Prot for the boss, mainly to keep threat off you and for hopefully less damage taken! It takes a bit, as we're both pulling only about 44k dps, but we get him down, and finish the instance!
Now there's no way anyone else can get pulled into this run and be stuck like we were!
Thanks for deciding to help me finish it, Garshaman. You were great, even telling me to wait for Ancestral Guidance to be off cooldown so you could help heal us while you dps'd. /highfive

Well it seems I was wrong. Sorry.
Dear Aatrox (Bonechewer), Balloonhands (Feathermoon), and Itsherbal (Feathermoon):
Actually I know what I'm doing when I'm not surrounded by assholes TYVM
a) I mis-judged the pull on the elemental in the Steelbender's room. Fuck off, you've probably done it, too.
b) I was doing just fine until that room.
c) I would've lived if you hadn't been too busy typing dickish shit at me to do your jobs
d) I'm SO SORRY me waiting for the RIGHT TIME to pull was such a terrible thing for you like wow
In short, choke on a bag of dicks and step on all the legos ever

P.S. I HATE PEOPLE this toon is never going to hit 90 JFC
I really know how to pick a server, don't I? Horde-side Proudmoore is like a ghost town. At least someone finally answered my plea in trade to make me a glyph.
That said...have some letters from a leveling paladin.
I don't mind if you pull, all right? Do whatever the fuck you want. But if you blame me for your death (or the healer), then I'm going to be upset. It's not my job to chase your stupid ass all over the instance, let alone the planet. Got it, Mr. Runs-into-the-room-with-Ironya-and-fights-her-at-the-back-wall? Yeah, okay. I'm glad we've cleared that up.

Dear monk tanks,
Sometimes my connection gets shitty and I pop over into my ret spec. How hard is it to monk tank? If you're a monk in full heirlooms, at level 45 you should be doing double my DPS on AoE pulls. Just saying. I realize that IRL it might be hard to breathe alcohol on shit and then breathe fire on it, too, but in WoW as a monk tank, it's pretty easy. Also wow, I realize that "Guard" is a hard button to see, but put it on your bars and use it as soon as it becomes available.

Dear tanks in general,
Stop queueing for shit just to drop group.
-The prot paladin moonlighting as retribution who...somehow still has to tank everything
Dear cute people,
Yeah you. Cute little hunters and your cute pets and the cute mages who say cute things like, "You're a good tank wow it's so hard to find a good tank please for the love of God tell me that you're requeueing."
I like you guys.
Yeah, okay. I don't have heirloom gear. But I know that I'm not THAT hard to heal, all right? Consider, if you will, paying attention. Consider also keeping up with the group after you tell me to "go go go" because I assume that means, "pull fast and efficiently" and not "haha you run ahead this RIPTIDE will keep you alive while I tab over to facebook!!!!"
NO. It will not keep me alive. You need to stick with the group and do more than pick the dirt out from between your toes. I know pushing more than one button in this game is difficult. -_-
Stop being selfish. The influx of super selfish people is just amazing. If you're going to queue as DPS *have a DPS spec*! It's not that hard. Seriously. I'm looking at you, warriors who queue as prot in a DPS role, stay prot the whole dungeon, and fight me for aggro. Not cool. Switch stances if you're going to stay in prot spec. Oh? It doesn't work? Then pay the 10g (and you can afford it, I see your heirlooms) and get dual-spec and grab yourself some crappy greens off of the AH (or more heirlooms) to play arms/fury. Again, THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.
Also, please to be needing only on what you need. Yeah, I see you, you assholes in heirlooms needing on blues because they look cool or whatever. Thanks. I needed that one-hander. Oh, and then a second upgrade drops the same dungeon BUT YOU HIT NEED ON IT AGAIN. So you know what? When the 2h drops, I need on it for my ret spec! Oh, shit, well, I lost it to you, too, Mr. Prot Warrior who I've fought for aggro the entire dungeon. Thanks. A lot. -_-
I see this too much. Stop it. Be courteous and respectful.

Before you zone into a random dungeon, make sure you are wearing your actual healing set, and not your RP set. Your healing will be much more effective when you are not wearing item level 31 gear.
I'm sorry. :< I'm glad we didn't wipe, though!
--Your healer (who is now in proper healing gear!)
