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.

So I finally got back into pugging after my break. To be fair, it's not really pugging, since I'm not doing it with my mains. I'm only doing it with alts. But you know what? It still counts.

Anyhow. I got another group with an awesome little gem in it. a Hunter. Really, I need say no more. That, by itself, is more than sufficient to complete this article and close out the post. But I thought I'd go ahead and explain.
The huntard in question was pulling... well, it's SFK. His damage was adequate for the level he was, the gear he had, and the dungeon we were doing.

But, on the second boss, he decided to jack the ring that dropped. The healer then squared him away, and he gave, without question, THE BEST EXCUSE EVER for ninja-ing an item.

"if that ring don't qualify fer me you should get in contact with blizz. they fucked up and wrote the code where i can click need"
I was amazed. Sometimes when somebody jacks something, they come up with some fun little explanation or just bail out asap. This guy though. I keep re-reading it and it just brings a smile to my face.

Oh yeah, the guy did bugger off right after I called him a huntard. We got somebody else and rocked a couple more dungeons with that group.
