One thing you have to give WoW is the potential for good pug stories. It’s sorta like going to the zoo to see animals except in this case you’re here to witness the weird fauna that inhabits WoW pugs. I thought today I’d share a few choice moments of my pug experiences from last week.
The bailers: These are a newish species I think because I don’t remember encountering so many of them in the past, maybe you guys can tell me if I was just lucky avoiding them. So the bailers have the uncanny ability to drop the group the second a boss dies. Tanks and healers to some extent seems to hold the biggest populations of the species. Whether they got their loot or not you can be sure they will disapear the second that boss is dead.
The directionally challenged tank: This gem was found in the depths of Gnomeragan. We were clearing the instance at a relatively good speed when all of a sudden our friend decided he wanted to go a certain way convinced it was the right way to go even if the map showed otherwise. We told him that it was the wrong way but to no avail. He must have been thinking that the treasure was hidden behind the wall.
In any case our directionally challenged friend managed to convince one dps to follow him and soon we had a surreal situation where three people were heading the right way and two others in the wrong direction. When finally the tank realized his mistake, he dropped the group rather than face humiliation.
Stoner boy I’m calling him stoner but there could be other explanation for his behavior. I think this is one case where his words will speak louder than mine. This is the actual conversation that I noted down.
Stoner: Guys… where is Hogger? I need him for my quest
Party: Uh… we’re in Sfk.. no Hogger here.
Stoner: ok… I need his head for my quest.
Stoner: Why I don’t have the Hogger head? We killed him with the zombies and stuff!
Healer: What the hell are you talking about?!
Stoner: Give me the head bitch! Why did you ninja it..
And so it went… for a full hilarious 45 minutes.
