It doesn't take that big of gear gap for a dps to pull aggro. People in flashpoints are usually on the same gear level and dps pulling off the tank is often caused by the tank being bad at their job. As for me using taunts in my flashpoint runs, that's just an additional practice for ops rotations. Sue me.

If you want challenge just form pre made and run under geared/try to solo them & so on... do not force your elitism over others.
Stop trying to make my elitism happen, it's not going to happen.

Wrong.

You use your single taunt in your initial opener to make sure no dps has even the slightest chance of pulling off you. After that, when it's off cooldown, you either wait for the fight mechanics that force you to use taunt kick in, or - if there aren't any such mechanics - use it in your regular rotation.

Super simple stuff.

I've had enrage last week too. Damned tank kept aggroing the little droids and the derps were all too happy to join inon the fun. My pleas to ignore the adds and explanations how they ignore you if you ignore them were, well, ignored. TRE imps ftl.

Oh I just hate the ones that run right into battle without waiting for the tank, standard really. I think we've all done that when we first started.

Had an interesting run on Scum and Villainy a few weeks back...

Guardian Level 55 mainly 168 / 180 geared decided after a very smooth run it must be said, that the 16 man group was so over-powered that the last boss - Dread Master Styrak, would be so pathetic that he would make an example of his 'uberness' as he put it by doing the last boss naked....yes naked and using only the basic brawling 'punch'....so nothing in any slot at all.....

We all pointed out the error of his ways in various levels of incredulity complete with a generous dose of colourful language but he did not abate....

Suffice to say he died....fast.....but it was amusing to see this naked guy trying to punch the crap out of the Kell Dragon.

What made it worse is that he then proceeded to blow his top at the healers calling them 'noobs who should be DPS'ers as they are crap at healing'

He was so enraged that he left...still naked...and we had to recruit a replacement.....and we finished the 16 man S&V nicely.

There are some really bi-polar people out there is all I can say!

Weird stuff from last few days:
Major Benes, probably the easiest boss in the game and still people fail at beating him without dying. How do you even do that?

Marauders who break CCs just to CC target again.

Marauders (again...) who run ahead and don't care about HP/resource levels of others or their own.

It's a class designed so simple, credulous little Call of Doodie kids can easily feel good about themselves without actually having to earn it, and thus be more inclined to buy more useless crap from the cash-shop.

Gotta keep the bads happy, they keep the servers running.

Why are you surprised?

Don't hate too much on marauders.... they do the second highest DPS of the eight ACs (Gunsnipe does more, I think)

You have lots of fail marauders, but when a truly good one shows up he/she is a force to be reckoned with.
