The weird people you meet in Group Finder.

Not Group Finder stuff, but I'm currently leveling a Shadow and spent the last two night on Coruscant grouping with people who just do not know how to play their classes yet. Vanguards without a cell active, Sents without a lightsaber form active. starting every fight with massive AoEs . . . so frustrating.

Just went through Cademimu HM on red eclipse. When I join 3 guys all from the same guild. at this point I'm thinking this will be over fast (All my gear is verpine/underworld) there's were the same, and some a little better.

Anyway, we get to the first boss and they halt... Then I figured they were on TS or something and one of them were new in this one. After a few minutes of waiting the fight starts, one gets caught in the "jail" meant for the droid thing, but hey it happens to all of us every now and then.

This is were the fun starts. They begin to skip a hole lot of the trash. The way they played it was just like they never tryied it before, but read about it somewhere. So I ask them, if the guild is "a real casual one" and I use a smiley Then I get alot of **** from them about not being friendly. So we press on and they start to make mistakes so they die while doing odd tactics. At this point I'm thinking "okay no biggy", lets just get this overwith so we can live our sepparate lives. Well I gotta say I expected more from them then that.

When we reached the last boss they decide to go back and do the bonus... Erhmm at this point I had it... First you skip half the FPs mobs and then you want to go back and do 'em? I mean get real! So I ask them you want to do bonus now? And after there reply I add this "Jesus Christ". At this point they proberly had it with me. So when the bonus died I didn't care to loot, I just went down the elevator.

So on the last boss they didn't care to free me from the chains so I had to use my "breaker" no biggy. Second time they went off to the next "free" area and keept on hitting the boss. So with my "breaker" on CD and stuck in the fire I die. At least I got revived, then it happened again, but no revive. At this point I had it. They got the boss down and while I had to wait for the exit to channel I got a lot of hate from them... I mean come on it's a game, but there is no need to close you eyes while playing or even begin to make it somebody elses fault!

So here I added three ppl to my ignorer list. I wonder if it ever gets full...

I was tank in Bording Party with a DPS Powertech who kept using his taunts. It was annoying, he continued doing so even though I told him to stop it several times.
I was so annoyed I left the group.

On my Assassin tank I recently queued for Cademinu as DPS. Our healer was clearly DPS specced and only healed when neccessary.
I can't believe we got through it. I am so glad I wasn't the tank (who died once because our healer was dealing damage instead of healing.

Guildmate with oricon head gear also gets rolled in the group, so we say Hi, and all goes well up to the mining droid. Now, i have done this FP a couple of times, but now my HP seems to drop quite fast, and eventually I die ... sorc resses me, and tells that "you are a bit undergeared for this fp" ... well .. that was no problem up to this point, and thats why i run these fp-s to gear up ... now i do notice, that this stacking debuff gets up to as high as 8 before being clensed, and also see that there are no shields on me ...
With your jugg if healer misses that debuff you can avoid death with Saber Reflect. If s/he misses it in the sense of "crap, was doing something else and got distracted" but if they don't know about that mechanic, you die since boss will cast that often and Saber Reflect won't be available.

And ugh... "undergeared"... 66/69 is pretty much overgeared for those 55 hms that got retuned when 2.0 hit. Anyone else remember in RotHC early access when tanks and healers were clearing them, at most, with campaing/dread guard gear ? That means they had like 21k/22k and 25k/28k health...

Not defending this behavior as it's wrong in PvE, but most likely he/she is a PvPer used to taunting on CD for protection numbers. I used to be in a PvP guild and a lot of their "tanky" dps would do that even in PvE until you reminded them.

If he was that used to it, he could have at least apologized for it, but he didn't say anything (and continued doing so). He also used both his taunts at once several times which is kinda weird (though I have no idea about pvp tactics).
I know you're just trying to explain why he did this, nevertheless as a tank it's just annoying as hell.

Weird people you meet are those who complain about new people being new.

Nowadays there seems to be a trend in the game: everyone expects you to be obscenely overgeared for everything. I joined a group for hard mode Eternity Vault the other day with my then level 50 Sorcerer, in full War Hero gear, 21k HP. The other healer was also level 50, he had like 22k HP.

The raid leader was getting worried, he proposed that one of us should be replaced because it's risky to start it with two level 50 healers... I reminded him that hard mode EV is tuned for level 50s in Columi gear and the other six players were all level 55 with 30k+ HP. In the end I barely had to heal anything, I spent most of the Ops DPSing.
