So last night I was feeling a slight bit burned out on running stuff with Ruhtra. So I did the daily quest to try and get my white polar bear mount, did the argent tourney dailies for more tokens to eventually get another mount from there, and then I ran some 2v2 arena with my partner to cap my points for the week. Now at this point in the season, I am just collecting the conquest tokens to turn in and buy some PVP gear for my Prot build. I doubt very seriously that I will ever use the gear in a serious manner, but it is a nice comfort having it on while doing dailies and what not. After all that I decided I wanted a change of pace and so enter the cow!
I switched to Holeycow and decided that I would run a couple of random dungeons and work on acquiring some new gear for him. Now my goal with the cow is to get him geared for PVE first and then PVP second. So I queued up for my first run and got a pretty good group. Well, everyone was good except for this one Death Knight. Why is it always the Death Knights? So we are in the Lost City of Tolvir (?) and we get to the second mob which is the individual mob that does the Shamanesque (?) type earthquake move. The poor DK stands in it and proceeds to die. Yes, I still refuse to heal stupid. So after we finish the mob, I apologize for not healing the guy and rez him. Well, I tried to rez him, but he didn't take the rez. I asked him if he got the rez and he tells us he is on a two minute timer. Really? I couldn't help but laugh to myself. He eventually rezes and then we proceed to the first boss.
The tank had whispered me and said I was being extremely nice to the DK at this point and I responded with some jokes and we started in on the boss. Things were going smooth for everyone but the DK who stood in every AoE that the boss had to offer and promptly died because of this. We waited for him to run back in to us and I mentioned to him that he may want to move out of any spell that pops underneath him as the nasty stuff was killing him. Remarkably he didn't get mad at me for making the suggestion. He did end up needing to go and get his gear repaired and that took him quite some time to do. He finally managed to find someone to fix his gear and he returned to us. He actually managed to stay alive on the croc boss, but made sure to make up for it by going out in the second phase of the next boss. I do not know why, but he decided to stand in the bosses AoE and die rather than do what everyone else did. I covered for him some by dropping my elemental totems and popping bloodlust.
At this point I figured this guy was either new or trolling us. Either way, I just wanted to get done. So one the last boss I made sure to tell him to kill the adds and then let him know when it was okay to attack the boss. We completed the run and no one had died except the poor DK. So at his point I really do not know if this guy was really that bad or just trolling. Either way it made for a fun night of laughing at the many ways he found to die. I can say though that he killed he my desire to heal any more dungeons last night. I retreated to the relative safety of Backyard Monsters on Facebook.
So you guys had any runs like that? Where someone was so bad it was just funny?
