It's been about another 10 Balder's Temple runs since my last post regarding disbandiing, still no lance drop yet so, still plugging away. But anyways - just another situation I encountered today.
So I queued up again today for BT and everything was peachy till we got to the last boss and here was the make-up. This was not our initial make-up as the slayer was a queue-in at the last boss as our initial 3rd DPS was DC'ed due to subsciption issues.
1x 145 Sorc
1x 145 Mystic
1x 147 War
1x 141 Slayer, 142 Slayer, 141 Slayer
As the Slayer (from VoT) queues in - we all inspect him and determine that his iLvL was kind of low for this fight. However, since my last post people said do not judge and jump to conclusions based on gear and give people a chance. So the war said it shouldnt be a problem and he would be able to carry since his iLvL was so much higher. So we agreed to try it out.
Keep in mind we asked the slayer if he knew the fight and he said yes and he did carry scrolls/pot. Needless to say - he screwed a couple of tiimes during the attempt and we ended up wiping at 1%. Group Opted to replace him.
Queue again. We get another slayer - (from VoT again) - iLvL 142, 1 higher than the last one. We begin to inspect his gear. We ask some questions but he doesn't respond, but we inspect anyway. LvL 48 crystals and LvL 35 Crystals. Hmmm... I don't like being an [filtered] If I don't need to be - but when someone does not take the effort to even ensure they have updated crystals... are they worth the effort of 4 others to carry him? and that he doesn't bother to communicate? Group Opted to replace him.
Queue again. We get yet - be amazed, Another SLAYER, but this time from Basilisk Crag. iLvL 141. So we are already kind of shaky on low iLvL slayers but, we don't want to leave room for doubt. Upon inspection crystals are ok, he stated he had completed this before and has scrolls/pots. Ok - we decide to give it another shot. FAILS - DPS was pretty tight at the end, could we have done it maybe, but didn't happen. Slayer fails to dodge laser and dies while boss is at 6%. The rest of us continue to DPS the boss down to 1% but black phase stops our progress.
Sorc leaves the party. Mystic is disgruntled. War is surprised his high iLvL DPS was not enough to carry. I explain that its fine - and DID not disband but gave apologies and left so that others may continue if desired. More than 2 hours waisted in BT which normally takes 35 minutes.
What do you think? was I premature to leave?
TL:DR = First Slayer low iLVL, gave it a shot. Said she knew fights - messed up quite abit. Wiped due to failing DPS check- group kicked.
2nd Slayer did not communicate, had lvl 48 crystals and 35 crystals - group kicked before attempt.
3rd Slayer low iLVL, had experience with fight and had scrolls. Death by lazer during burn phase - could not recover dps in time. Wiped. I apologized, pass lead and quit.
Have I improved upon my "ethics" in LFD since last time? or should I have kept continued trying?
