I am not a dedicated raider, but I love raiding. Since I can never commit to the raiding schedules that guilds require of their raiders, I am in a constant state of pugging. When I'm not actively in a pug, I am scanning the trade channel looking for one that will have all the qualities required to be successful- gear, experience, patience, and maybe a little bit of luck. When I find such a group, I'm ecstatic. But more often than not, I face group after group of impatient, inexperienced, and under geared scrubs who simply want to be carried to the final boss so they can get their [EPIC LOOT] Those groups often end in a way that everyone who has ever pugged is familiar with- people getting frustrated and leaving. But every now and then, there is a group that fails so bad, the fail is almost a win, in and of itself, for being such a unique level of fail.

Those are the groups this blog is about.

This Dungeon Is In Progress

...Oh, crap.

The queue that I always dread getting as a healer or tank. There's only three possible outcomes.

#1- The previous healer or tank was SSOOOOOOO terrible, that the group was willing to vote them out and wait FOREVER to get a new healer or tank. As we all know, that is a longass wait.

#2-DC/ Cat's on fire/ Goldfish is drowning/ ninja/ <Insert other shitty reason to leave here>

#3- The previous healer or tank left because the group was SSSOOOOOOOO terrible, that they were willing to deal with their deserter debuff and get another group.

More often than not, it's the third reason. When I encounter that kind of a queue, I close my eyes, take a deep breath, open my eyes, wait ten or fifteen seconds to give them time to finish wiping if their healer/tank left midpull, then enter the dungeon.

I then die because I should have waited one second longer.
