Anyway, i get my group instantly and I see it's in progress. Uh oh. I double check that I'm flagged as DPS in the tool and I accept and travel.

First fight in, I know it's trouble.

After the second fight in, I post, "Sorry guys, this won't be worth the repair bills." and /leave.

I could have helped them. I could have taught them the fights and the strategies and shown them the optional skips. I could have flipped over to tanking or even just used more of my tanking skills to keep the adds off the healer because the tank was clearly not capable of doing that. But, repair bills being what they are, my decision was clear.

Yep. This is true. I usually queue to do the occasional FP if I feel like running one and guildies aren't around or don't feel like doing one. I've only queued once for a FP since these repair costs went into effect, and that was as the tank with a fello guild member on healing; we queued for 2 DPS. I won't enter the queue on my own at ALL. I'll just level an alt or do something else. I rarely have a lot of money on my toons, I don't run dailies very often and I don't really enjoy working the GTN for cash. Up until now, it wasn't a big deal, I made enough to cover the reasonable costs of repair. But now that 2 wipes cost me 30k in repairs, I won't queue. Period. I can't afford to.
