Practically a dungeon virgin [Nov. 28th, 2010|11:17 am]
Blizzard's furry friends



As one of my very few World of Warcraft dungeons, I ran Shadowfang Keep yesterday with a random group. As I expected, there was no coördination whatsoever. And not only was there no coördination--there wasn’t a word exchanged between the party members. The tank just ran from baddie to baddie, and the rest of us struggled to keep up with him to help him kill things.

I was there specifically to fulfill a Rogue quest, gathering three sets of materials so that a blacksmith could build me a specific weapon. Despite not having a clue where the party was going nor having a spare moment to take a breath and look around, I somehow managed to collect the three elements I needed. I could not, however, tell you how or when I picked any of them up. It’s just dumb luck that it worked out for me.

Fortunately, I knew (from previously talking to other players and watching Carol run a few dungeons) about Need versus Greed, so I didn’t embarrass myself in that respect (except once at the end when I hit Need by mistake and won a staff that I could not use).

After it was over (the only clue given was that the tank stopped running and stood in one spot), the dungeon leader said, “Your an idiot”, and disbanded the party. I don’t know whether he was talking to me, but I assumed he was, and I took it badly, as I do any criticism. I’m just built that way.

Anyway, I sent back, “At least I know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’. Do you have any *helpful* criticism to offer?” --but he had already logged off.

Ah, World of Warcraft, where most people ignore you, a lot piss you off, and a precious few are downright helpful.

Yes it can be like this but so far with the guild I am in it's not been bad. It depends a lot on who you are with. Learn who is good and who isn't. Don't trust the random dungeon finder for meeting people many don't know what they are up to and are just there to grab and need what ever they can get and sell off whatever the get for indecent amounts of gold in the AH's

Join Blood Tied we're appecting good players, two weeks is the trial period and we'll let you know if you become a full member.

You can find me as Selanas on Moonglade Server in the EU see you soon I hope.

I don't think I've run a dungeon now since 4 came out. a) I find the dungeons now pretty much a cake walk and as you say its: group; chase tank; get yelled at for not healing/dpsing/tanking enough; disband; repeat.

I do have a few folks I will run with (even tank for) and they're good. We have a fun time, its done as a nice pace and I'd probably actually call it enjoyable.

The good thing about probably 80% of the dungeon quests, if you're in the dungeon, you're going to complete them. If something gives you the loot bag, click on it and you'll find you loot the item. I loot everything. I've even now got a macro that sells my grey items automatically. I love it.

If and when you find those helpful people, hang onto them and keep them on your good side and if possible, edge your way into their guild. I find that friendly, fun folks tend to stick together.
