I reject queue because I only run FP's when levelling - if the level spread is too large, then I'll have nerfed XP.

Well, OK, these are sound reasons.

I have noticed that in the middle-game especially, you sometimes get dumped into an FP that is significantly above your level, like +3-4 levels on you, as GF opens these up early. Yeah, bad idea: Strong-or-higher mob looks at you, you go "urp," and have a big repair bill.

But, the completion-trigger for those [DAILY] missions --"Emerging Conflicts (X)"-- requires that you be grouped for all available FPs. A few tweaks we can haz, EAWare?

As for the other...Double-check, and if present, un-tick your off-spec box, please.
Guys/Gals, could you please start queuing for real Flashpoints again?

Hmmm, to be honest. Groupfinder opens up later than when you manually enter the flashpoint.
Also storymodes arent that tough to do with offspecs. I was going in with a vanguard-dps friend of mine who checked the tankbox. I was on my commandohealer and had 0 issues healing him through the fight. This is ofcourse requiring a basic understanding of your class which a lot of people arent having yet in lowbees.
I also had to heal bossfights where I had to tank bosses (mando-raders) or where the tank was wearing an chestpiece with only armor (yup, no stats at all, only some armor). You'll be surprised how forgiving lowbees are.

This ofc doesnt disregard the annoince of having afk-pops.

ATT'N: Derp-smashers.

If you say that you don't know a boss-fight, then could you please...

...

...

Wait until I'm done explaining the fight to you before you freaking attack? (Before the tank, 'natch, but that's fine, hero-tank is the lesser-known off-spec for the Marauder/Sentinel class, as I'm sure we all know!)

E:

Lost Island [HARD] really isn't that hard once you've learned the mechanics and taken your lumps a few times. It certainly wouldn't devour PuGs at the rate it does if more people would read --and then bloody well retain-- basic instructions.

Had a tank yesterday who intentionally was pulling tons of mobs trying to 'troll' us or something, and then laughing about how we'll never get another tank if we kick him.

I just pulled out treek, the rest of the dungeon went just fine, even had a tank join right before the last boss.


Guy was PMing me after we kicked him saying how we'd never beat the dungeon and ****, it was funny.

OMG, you should totally up-load a screenshot of the completion to your favourite file-host...

...

And then /whisper him the link repeatedly!

Troll the troll, because some tanks out there reeeeeeeally need to get the f over themselves.

That is totally uncivilized and uncalled for in this age of refined behavior and wisdom. Unless the final drop was a tank piece, in which case you need *two* screen shots, one of the drop itself, and one of Treek modeling it. Just sayin'. Naming the screen shots sweet_justice01.jpg and sweet_justice02.jpg might be considered excessive by some people, so I wouldn't even think of doing it.

Hammer Station HM. I was on my Operative healer, but earlier in the day I had helped a healer Sorc friend of mine to do some dailies, so I had respecced for Lethality in between. When I got the GF tick (as a healer) I respecced back to Medicine and before I loaded in, the tank was pounding on the next droid. No worries, my Op is well-geared, so a quick Kolto Injection yielded a 10k crit and off we went.

All was nice and well until the first boss. I used Scavenging to get the short cut. We had two DPS players from the very low end of the spectrum, so I did not expect the tank to pull immediately. I was still around 35 metres away from the tank and the two DPS players were still looting the previous enemies. The thing is, I had just respecced and I did not have cleanse bound to my regular button (which is T). So the tank dropped. I got a few bad comments, but I can understand that, I should've changed that on the run and with my gear I could've probably done the droid with the tank alone.

But then our almost fully Oriconian-geared tank started showing her true colours and so did the DPS players. Every single encounter the all went from strong to weak, despite me asking for them to get the easy mobs first. That bridge that is guarded by two turrets? I CC'd the farther turret three times and the Juggernaut moved towards it so as to Smash them both. After I told even before the match I'd CC it.

The last boss was quite similar. My Explosive Probe, Shiv, Frag Grenade and Rifle Shot killed all the adds. Yet all of them claimed to be experienced PvE players. Later on I joined a PUG TFB and saw the tank there. I decided to thank the group for inviting, but I I would most seriously have to leave.

Thank you! This put a huge smile on my face.

been reading this thread for months. great thread. all that frustration can be easily vent out after reading these stories

2 days ago. dont know what in world had happened to vanguards.

Taral v SM. me vanguard 31 tank with 8.9k hp(approximately) cant remember now. but had full 31 level blue mods, and another vanguard 39 level 9.7k hp and 2 31 level other class. the healer and the vanguard dps are from same guild. and the vanguard dps is on ion cell and guarding healer. i politely asked him whether he want to tank and is he tank speced. he says he is tank and wants to tank. i dont know why he rolled in as dps if he ants to tank. but i left him to tank. and switched to another cell. for each mob he took great time to start. ok i wasnt in a hurry and healers first time it was. so i thought he might be explaining on pm or something. until final boss this went on. we did all bonus. i was happy though we wiped 2 times on bonus boss. but healer's first time. so no worries.

At last boss. our vanguard tank in dps role went ahead straight away and started los pulling boss to north right of staircase and went under it. withought pausing or informing anyone. and healer was left stranded in side geetting hits. and this guy kept attacking only champ without any communication.then i went and taunted other mobs and still healer died and we killed boss only to get wipe at mobs+turrets hands. we could have easily cleared that without los pull. no idea why he wwent rushing in when he waits each time on small mob.

and best part, he actually greeded all aim gear. i know its not ideal for 39 level. but hey, it was better than what he had. though i'm not complaining that i got all aim loot.

same day, next fp. cademimu. me 31 van tank. and another 2 32's and a 33 vanguard in dps role with ion cell. i just died once. then didnt say anything as he was undergeared and we were overleveled for fp. so we went on and i never lost aggro to him until boss fight. there i lost aggro first time on that fight to our tank in dps role. and he keeps standing in fire. and our healer though great at healing was weird in his own way. he wanted me to do an los pull on each mob. he goes to a corner before a mb fight and asks me to come there ands tart fight while i'm totally ok with pulling normally and we were doing fine. i just dont know why he got scared. and my hp hadnt even gone below 30% on that fp.

it was funny, i did taunt him and no one died thanks to gerat healing for saving him. but that was 2 in a row 2 tanks in fp while we dont get tanks.

and i thought had enough and lets go to imp side. guess what? yes. boarding party, me sin 33 tank. another sin 34 in tank stance and guarding healer already when i came in. asked politely to remove guard and change stance. he did do that. but it was funny to get 3 consecutive fps with 2 tanks all in a day. thought lets call it a day after that.
