I attempted this instance last night in a PUG — with the "join party in progress." It was awesome! I entered the instance as a party of me — signs that the previous one wasn't going to well. I'm just a DD (I feel confidant that I'm pretty good at my level), so DF is a pain to get in. As the timer ticked away (3-5 mins) I decided that I was going to just re-que.. then the party bar filled up. PLD was going to be out tank. Needless to say we didnt get passed the first unlocked door. He died around 10% HP left... and left the party. we as a group decided to wait it out to see if another tank would come in... 15 mins later, nothing.
I think just leaving a group hanging without even saying anything is just rude. At least have a little conversation prior to leaving — maybe you've done this instance before, but we haven't. A little advise or talk goes a long way. Like PvP, I think player drops should be noted on their character profile, negative honor. At least take the time to try a couple times. I know it was a PUG and it's my fault I didn't set it up before we went in (whether FC or LS or shouting) but still... ugh.
Sorry, I'm just ranting my frustration with this instance last night.
Someone said gear checks earlier up in the thread; look at my gear as a DPS — maybe I'm to blame. Feel free to say I'm wearing bad gear, if I don't know, then I'll never learn.
Your gear is probably better than mine. Honestly I feel my DPS is OK enough for this fight. The issue is watching DMG go to waste because the scaley nuisance is allowed to roll around in his own vomit for far too long.
On a side note I will take the advice of trying to remain a little closer to the healer. I've been finding myself trying to stay tight with the tank (close to the wall when rotations permit) in hopes of isolating said poisonous vomit.
PS: and directed at no one. Bailing after one or two poor performances in DF is so weak. I get as much enjoyment watching someone finally 'get it' as I do completing the instance. I guess I'm just a little less sour in these situations. Edited, Sep 19th 2013 12:50pm by ShindaUsagi
