Does line of sight mean anything to you? I mean, the mob that’s killing you is at range. How hard is this?
Answer: Pretty damn hard apparently.
It’s a pretty sad state of affairs in my opinion when the random joes and janes from LFD cannot be bothered to do something as simple as stand behind a segment of wall for five seconds. The concept of the “Line of Sight Pull” was one of the first things I learned in Tank School, right after “If the healer dies it’s your fault.” Have these nublettes gotten so spoiled by repetitive AoE/Tank/Loot that when they come into a situation where you can’t do that their brains cannot understand “Stay behind the wall until I have threat”?
Dear Paladin. This is not PeeVeePees. You cannot just walk out there and soak up damage. That goddamn rifleman and his mage buddy are going to fuck you up. You cannot blame the healer for your own stupidty. I know you are doing it. She’s sitting right next to me. Oh look you died first again.
Dear Warlock. Yes I have vigilance. No you can’t have it because the mage has it and she does more threat than you, especially when the entire deal with this room is that YOU STAND BEHIND THE GODDAMN WALL TO GET THEM TOGETHER AND AOE THEM DOWN. Do not cast your stun when they are standing in the doorway. Cast Rain of Fire over here. After I have them. And now you’re dead too.
I’m not a Death Knight. I have one ability to get them over here from range, and it’s on a longer cooldown than Death Grip.
And now the healer is dead. And I’m dead. You know what? This is the third time we’ve died thanks the exact same chain of events. My courtesy is expired, and I’ve a raid in 40 minutes. Good luck finding another Tank and healer. Oh, wait, they’ll leave your group too because this is the way you pull this room you lazy-no-strategy-having-never-ran-BRD-without-heirlooms-talentless-hacks.
The moral of this story is that the extent of my patience for two badges is 20 gold in repair bills.
