Its been a while since i played wow and i returned before xmas due to having my account being hacked. Luckily Blizzard gave me everything back on every toon which was awesome. Logging and seeing your toons naked with 13 silver is not something you ever want to happen.
I still dont understand how i got hacked, i know it was a virus designed to steal popular MMO login details but i dont know how thats possable when my account was inactive. Its something i still dont know how your account cant be hacked with your subscription being stopped.
Patch 3.3 Random dungeon Tool
The latest wow patch has added a lot for the casual player like myself and the random cross-realm heroics are so great until once in every few groups you meet complete assholes who will take great pleasure in pointing out your DPS is lower than the tanks etc. Now ive had a quite a few bad experiences in that matter as i tried to gear up my warlock and you woulndt believe how nasty people can get in a P.U.G printing out DPS meters at you and then calling you a “noob”. When you dont have the gear to be able to do the dam damage you want too.
In every case ive played its been a Druid that was either tanking or healing that was being a complete asshole in this matter. Its not like i stood there afk with follow on and didnt try to do good damage. In almost every case i was polite bit my tongue and tried not to get nasty about it in telling the idiot to “fuck off”. The temptation to say this was unbearable at times but today came a new low. In most cases youll find yourself up against players with better gear and a better “Gear Score” but somehow the assholes in question doesnt even want to know.
While i was on my alt shadow priest which is dual-specced as healer and my gear is not great i met yet again another druid tank who commented during a boss fight that i was a noob. When i asked what the heck he/she meant i was told i wasnt targetting the “souls” in the first boss fight in the Ice Crown Citadel Heroic – Forge of Souls. Now i had a good day at college and was just home and was looking forward to getting some badges from the heroic runs using the “random Dungeon Tool”. I replied to the druid tank that;
“Yes i was idiot” – which i was
Now ive had this kinda crap before in heroics as i said above it seems druids think they are much better than every other class and person in the game. The group seemed to pause on the way to the next boss and i said “Come on”. I was there for the two badges you get each day and maybe some loot of it dropped but its no big deal its my alt. When the tank started up again he/she was killing a group of mobs that didnt need to be killed to progress to the next boss. I said;
me: “Why are you killing those we dont need too?”
Druid: “You ever heard of the battered hilt” – (yes of course i have i have it on my warlock (Epic Weapon Quest))
To which i got an answer from the guild mate of the tank;
“If you dont like it you can leave.”
Of course i said nothing and continued to DPS the mobs.
Then things got more and more nasty with both guild members calling me a “Noob”.
Wanting to tell them to go fuck themselves i said calmly;
“Your not in my guild, your opinions dont matter”
Then i put one of the party members on ignore and in 10 seconds i was kicked from the group. So just for talking back to the tank i got booted out and had to re-queue. This sadly is the type of asshole that plays wow, there are many people like this and if a druid is tanking your group watch your back. The number of times this has happened is where my “Gear Score” was at least 600-1000 below the group average is staggering and almost everytime it was a druid being a complete asshole. If theres a lesson to be learned its stand up for yourself and if you see a druid in your group watch yourself if your trying to gear up.
This is not to say that all druids are like this ive met some great druids who just get on with, this is only my experience and opinion.
If you dont believe the article ive writen check out wow.com for the exact same problems;
The Shit List:
Some of the situations ive been in:
1) The Lootwhore Mage:
The Mage that asked me why i needed on a casters dagger (while on my shadow priest) when it was miles better than the one i had;
Me: “Erm its a casters weapon”
Mage: says nothing
This was after the healer the died and i switched to healing for the second boss in Heroic Pit Of Saron, did anyone thank me or say good job nope. So we get on with the run and get to the end boss who drops a staff which tbh i could have also done with but knowing the mage was another asshole i passed on it only for the mage to need on it when he had better was doing better DPS than me and then to explain when the rogue asked:
Rogue: “lol mage who must be joking”
Mage “Its a casters weapon..”
Of course it didnt matter but it goes to show you who stupid people are.
