Thanks all for the replies. I needed to share. :-)
Huh, I've tanked since game launch, and I never knew my focus is better then a shield. I'll have to try that next time I run TFB. I mean, it's only natural to wipe 7,000 times.
And no offense, but why did you quit right before Karagga? Sounded like you could actually beat him. I personally just hate being locked out at the final boss fight, but that's just me.
Yes, that would have been the rational/smart thing to do. But we all have our breaking point, where no matter the consequences, we just want to punch someone in the face. I actually should have left before reaching that point, as I'm sure I earned an ignore from one or both of the competent players after that.
