Seeing characters dance is a bit like pulling back the curtain a bit ... breaking the 4th wall ...

If you want to dance go for it, but I think it's rude to use things that affect other characters. I know they are in the game, so don't call anyone out for using them, but I will move out of the area or jump on a speeder to make it stop, and that is MY right to do.
but that wasnt really my intention though i understand what you mean. all i wanted was them to get healed up to 100 before HK and Malgus fights. I mean my main reason was that to buy item too as i have had times where people just dont use out of combat heal ability and i have to wait for no reason or heal them myself if i am healer. so its a convenient tool instead of asking them to heal in chat which they never read anyway. not this particular case but in general i mean

When I dps tank hammer station, I dont move out of that conal on MM usually. Depends on heals I guess, but it does so little dmg with a 30% aoe DR (even less on tanks) that it is not worth bothering with. Since it is an aoe ability, PTs get to do some extra dmg with close and personal and also vent a bit of heat, pyro shield too etc.

I know a lot of tid bits about tanking positions, so when I'm not tanking and give pointers, I usually just get the response "I know how to tank" or "this is why people don't like to tank" and then continue to make an utter mess of the fight, ugh. So I guess I know how you feel.

Not group finder but a group activity, the Ossus WB's and needed somewhere to vent a little.

I don't think in all this time I've ever been apart of a wipe with Kil'cik before today. The majority of DPS completely ignored the adds, with the adds being ignored they all made a b-line for us healers, one of us went down pretty quickly, I said get the adds in chat but were ignored by the tunnel vision DPS who just ignored all the adds. The only time the DPS noticed was when they started to die because we were one healer down and the adds were multiplying like crazy and now not just ganging up on us 3 healers but the dps to. A few of the dps starting going off in the chat about how bad the healers were because he died. The medic ad never went down before we wiped, just ignored like all the adds. When we wiped because the ad count was insane the DPS ganged up on us healers telling the group leader to kill all 4 of us and get new ones because we were so bad. If I wasn't desperate to just get the bosses done for the week I would have quit.

I often see when doing my Ossus Dailies WB groups struggling for very long periods trying to find someone to fill a heal spot. When someone is constantly blaming/ bad mouthing the heals when they themselves are the ones standing in stupid with the droid boss and not killing the ads on the bug boss then maybe there's your answer as to why no one wants to heal these bosses.

Seriously people with that boss KILL THE ADS first it's pretty important, it's not a hard WB by any means.

Had a fast Hammer run a few days ago.
DPS were running ahead, even when we weren't finished with fighting.
Well, in Hammer (Vet) I'm overlooking a lot of flaws. Because Hammer is so easy.
Had this been another FP, I would have protested.
Heal (a guildy) said to me he didn't like their running, and I agreed, but because it is Hammer Vet I overlook these things normally.
Guildy also said he has begun healing only those who are able to write at least a few words of greeting at the start.
Or, to put it into other words : No talk, no heal.

Nobody blamed healers luckily but i didn't know if thats like not really wipe boss occasionally or not wipe at all now.

we wiped twice on that boss. I dont even want to count how many times people died on other boss including me. aoe was everywhere. i dont think i learned how to do that boss because the blast was all over and there was like no coordination. dead? run back. thats all there was to it. not sure if thats how its supposed to be done. I haven't tried to do it yet again after that last 300k ish repair bills.

ouch, thats bit harsh i think but i can understand. i do type hi and sometimes i dont if no one did and are all overgeared than me. feels like they have grinded more than me so i dont know if they are burned out that they cant type.

But running before clearing i agree. I do it rarely but only if i am tank and have aggro and 100% sure it will die in 1 or 2 seconds to go little further and heal before pull while not wasting anyone's time.
--------------------
Had a vet mannan yesterday on my sniper. Me 70, 1 47 merc healer and 32 mara? dont remember but didn't have stealth/taunt (different guild yet friends it seems) and another 70 assassin.

I was bit late to join as i was on the way to pick weekly while i accepted mission. they waited surprisingly. i was ok with them going ahead to clear and informed in chat. the two lowbies were chanting loakath dead or something always related to loakath. i have no idea what they were about.

first boss, i had aggro on two droids and got chained and killed. couldn't get to kolto and healer didn't heal or couldn't i have no idea why they didn't use kolto. then assassin dies too when they gang on him. I ask if they are healing and know they can use kolto, they say they did. i didn't say more and thought of using it myself.

round 2: we pulled it through and healer did use kolto and no one died. they pulled something by mistake and assassin was annoyed. after 2 wrong pull they said dont pull again when i am trying to stealth or i will leave. they pulled the console click (stealth skip possible one) at below and assassin left right away. both lowbies died and i somehow managed to solo it with help of multiple kolto cans breaking. Queued and we get level 15 mara.

Now its me 70 sniper, 47 merc healer, 32 mara? and 15 mara. no one can kite. i got aggro and i kite but i cant dps and i just put dots on him. adds dont die and we wipe. 2-3 times. they kicked the level 15 mara saying useless. Queued again.

We got level 57 PT. We try again but PT is not used to this fp and they are just coming back to game. We wipe. I show how to kite before /stuck. They try again and we still wiped. Both 47 & 32 left to their planets to continue without saying anything and only 1 left group. we kick the other. we queue again. All this time they kept chatting throughout fp about loakath dead or loakarth this that. it was weird or i am missing some reference no idea.

We got a level 17 some class forgot. and a level 68 jugg. Now its me 70 sniper, 57 pt, 68 jugg, 17 mara? idr. Then i ask jugg if they can tank. they say they have done this as heals but haven't tanked and only leveling one now. we try 2 times and we wipe. 57pt suggests we do it with comp and kick 17 as they cant do anything. i was typing we cant do it with comp and the 17 leaves area without leaving group. i brought my level 10 comp while others have lower level. my 50 comp is unavailable(thanks bioware for not giving comps back yet). so we try 2 times and it didn't work.

Then pt respecs for tank and pull their healer comp and i dismiss mine. we finally didn't have to worry about aggro and me running or anyone dying because couldn't reach kolto before boss hit too many times. We cleared the fp with 3 people after starting it 2 hours ago and 8 people in that fp. I was glad i got it done and instead of looking for snv group. went straight to bed.
