Zos there has to be and needs to be beginner dungeons only for appropriate low levels with no cp
No,but I have I have seen tanks just sit and do nothing for several minutes between bosses.Usually when they do this it happens than once.Realistically if the tank is sitting with his thumb up his ass,there really is no reason not to clear mobs if dps and healer can handle it.It simply gives the group a beginning,and no I'm not talking about a speed run..Just finishing in a timely manner. I No reason to go pulling the entire dungeon though.Protossyder wrote: »And it has -nothing- to do with the tank being "too slow" and everything to do with bad play habits in MMOs. I've never seen a tank "too slow" who wasn't afk, and have only experienced that a couple of times. Face it, we are talking a difference of seconds here, not hours. DPS pre aggroing the mobs is bad team play in teams in MMOs, anyone who doesn't instantly realize that is either an MMO newb or being dishonest. Finally, difficulty level doesn't matter. There are players undergeared enough to die instantly to normal dungeon mob aggro when a tank has to clean up an overpull, and I have seen that very thing many times of late where some "hotshot" DPS doesn't know that there are 10 more mobs behind the rock where they just aggroed 5 and gets insta ganked.
This. OP, have you been in a guild, or just are assuming what being in one will be like? I'm in 3, and I really don't feel pressured. There are events, and you go if you want. If someone goes crazy about people being online and doing their own thing...don't be in that guild.That said, I'm going to re-suggest the guild idea that I know you're digging in your heels about. A good guild full of normal, well-adjusted humans is not going to force you to do anything you don't want to do. If you want to play with them, then do so, and enjoy the connections that allow you to now find a proper group that suits your needs. If you don't want to play with anyone, don't. I'm in 5 guilds, and i get a lot of requests to run content from players in all of them (tanks and healers get the most requests for help), but when I just want to play solo, which happens about once a week or so, I put myself into offline mode in the guild roster and on my Xbox profile, and I go do my thing. No one gets mad and no one faults me for it.

It's also a reminder that you don't need a full crew of four to do easy dungeons. All 16 of the base dungeons can be duoed just with a tank and with a damage dealer who also does some healing. That's true of some of the "2" dungeons as well, although those are likelier to have particular fights that frustrate weak groups.
