So many incidents. How to choose which ones to talk
about? I'll just start off alphabetically and take it from there, OK?
Healer's Log 20161012. Hammer Station.
My lead-off incident actually has nothing to do with "healing" -- rather, it's a "moral stand" issue.
Our tank leaves the group early (can't recall why), so we're 3-manning it while awaiting a replacement. Abalon is using a companion tank. A level-60 pops into the group. Abalon promptly starts a vote-kick and the other group member seconds it, so our new tank goes >poof<. Before he poofs, the tank simply asks, "Why?!" I echo it. Abalon demands to know if I actually want to "complete the FP or not." The implication: L60 is too low to do a Master FP.
I was once in a group in Lost Island that included two L50s. And we kicked it. LI is much harder than HS. I thus know that, as tempting as it is, you can never judge a player's effectiveness in a Master FP by their level alone. I've seen too many high-levels flounder and enough lowbies who kicked ass. Kicking someone based on their level alone, without giving them a chance, is short-sighted, arrogant and stupid.
So I leave. Before I can get the /ignore in, Abalon /whispers me to affirm his belief that I am an "imbecile."
