Tanks shouldn't jump in lava
they shouldn't do it once, or even twice , three times is just really too much.
Unless they are very bad at tanking,
Then immediately upon entering an instance with lava they should jump right in and stay there, until being removed from group.
I mostly played alts today.
Three very uneventful fast runs through SM graveyard on Cassarah.

I zoned in, it was SM graveyard, the group was dead, they were swearing at each other and tossing out insults, I was about to rez the first party member I saw when the group broke up.
I and the rogue were the only two with the random group timers and only the first two mobs were dead.
I was left to ponder what happened.
My friend thinks it went down like this : they are fighting the first two mobs in the hallway one runs into the main room and aggros the boss and maybe everyone else, they die.
But the tank and the rest of the group except the rogue had to be there for fifteen minutes, I think it may have not been a group that I would have wanted to be in.

Today I got a group just as I started chatting with a GM about restoring a pet that went missing. I probably should have declined , but didn't, and since no one died and the instance went fast I think it was ok although I did resort to lay on hands once.
Scarlet monastery graveyard , generally very fast and not all that hard to heal.

Today my main server went down for maintenence so I PuGed on a priest alt, three trips through ragefire chasm, the first a druid rolled need on everything and the wait to kick him was long because they'd kicked the last healer just before I came, one death due DPS to falling in lava it went well otherwise.
The next group the warrior rolled need on all cloth, it annoyed me but nothing I needed dropped, but the one after that the Tank also a warrior rolled need on the cloth boss drop and won it he then insisted he didn't have it and could use it to heal on an alt, so I refused to heal him, not exactly a big tantrum, but he did die. I usually don't care these are low level drops and quickly replaced but warriors don't need cloth especially cloth with intellect and if one kept rolling need on stuff he didn't use he would just be annoying over the long term.
Maybe the lack of intellect affects warriors reasoning skills.

Today started with Razorfen Kraul, we had a great tank, unfortunately he disconnected half way through and it took a while to replace him. During the whole run about every five minutes the druid asked if we were done yet, which was interesting because later in the day I got RFK again and the tank, who was really bad kept asking is this it are we done yet? anyhow he left just after we cleared the last room before the boss. We finished anyhow. Later in the day I had a nice run in Gnomeregan, the tank was once again rather good but we had a warrior who needed on everything and constantly ran ahead, he was eventually kicked.
Today I once again noticed that gnomes are often named for food.

The first instance today was The Deadmines, the tank a druid was from SoE too and did very well , rather a relief from yesterday, he took damage at a reasonable rate , and kept aggro nicely. The group did so well we did a second random instance together, Wailing Caverns it went a heck of a lot more smoothly then yesterday.
I'm hoping for Shadowfang keep next , I always liked that place.
" Good day, Arugal, I've come for your robes"
Ever notice every caster their brother, their aunts cousins dog and hunter wears Arugals robes? Really can you wear them to a party, especially if everyone else is too?
Who makes all those robes for him ?
With Cataclysm will her ever get a new designer, what will be the next big fashion trend?

The first random instance was Wailing Caverns.
The first tank we got was wearing a robe and various items from a vendor , the group voted to kick him. Perhaps he should just get a club and some ancestral woolies and say he was a barbarian?
The second tank said "Wailing caverns F*@# it" and left.
The third tank was a paladin, wasn't great at holding aggro and the mobs just sort of attacked everyone
Tank four left without a word immediately after zoning.
Tank five, was a druid and although wearing a holiday outfit did just fine and the instance was finished, although the tank did roll need on a wand from a rare mob and all the dps left and was replaced.
Not a bad start I think.
Hi I play world of warcraft and have for five years I still don't have a level 80 character but this year I will, I hope because I want a pet pug in game. I like dogs.
Pug in the title refers to pickup group, particularly in world of Warcraft, in this case using the random group finder, I plan to start at 17 and make my way to 80 mostly with random PuGs, doing at least one a day. I expect this to be somewhat amusing.
I'm going to play a holy paladin and heal, because I like healing. My character is on the realm Sisters of Elune and is named Cassarah.
the blog will also include random ramblings about WoW, and any other random stuff I plan to ramble about unrelated to WoW.
