But on my Scoundrel healer I am more relaxed about grouping 'cause I am quite familiar with the class and have played in groups quite a bit.

Basically, I play to have fun, and the potential for getting cursed at and insulted by random people makes me less social. I will chat and be nice in a party, though there is usually such filth and trolling in general chat lately that I don't talk in it (if I did, I might give into the urge to scold someone for being so crude and misogynistic, lol).
If you can keep Quinn out of trouble, you can probably tank for live folks easier. They're better at going defensive to allow you to get aggro back.

Back to the socializing, being a mediocre tank (like me) isn't that bad, so long as you don't pretend you're good at it and then mess up. Most of the groups I've been with are fine with a green tank, as long as they know I'm green before they've run their combo and run aggro beyond the tank's ability to pull.

I typically try to be, but it's not always easy.

Sad to say, but it's typically seeing someone trolling in General that gets a conversation started (even with me), if only to make it obvious that they're just trollin'. That usually develops into a full blown conversation once folks feel like there's someone talking who wont lambaste them just for speaking up, which is nice though occasionally distracting.

Generally though, I chitchat while I'm on a speeder or something but I focus on playing the game otherwise.
I draw a comic. You should check it out.
