#1 - 2011/01/06 04:30:00 PMHow can people learn new dungeons when others are unwilling to teach? When I whine about 'solo dungeons' people respond; rightly so, with 'it's an MMO, you need to expect to depend on others for help.'
Ok, fine. However when I ask for help, tips, or say "Never been here before, tips/tricks/traps to worry about?" I get booted.
No matter what level, I've toons from 1-85 and the leet jerks are all the same.
"Be geared and know the fights."
It's bogus. How are people expected to progress when the ones able to help are total jerks?
I've had 7 friends/family quit because of this. I am not threatening such things, because I still have faith in the community. Why? Dunno, like punishment I guess. ;) However, if blizz wants real NOOB customers, they really need to do something about how the experienced players treat the new ones.
A prime example is my pally went from heals to tank. He's 84. I yell in trade "Tank for regular Wrath dungeons, new at it need practice." And I never get any helpful responses.
Hell, event this guy at 20, I was doing randoms and asked a question and got flack for being 'noob'. Well, yeah, really? what gave it away, the level 22 after my name? ppffsstt I had no heirloom gear, nor any other indication I had higher toons. just wanted to see how people treat noobs, and was/am VERY disappointed.
So, back to the ORIGINAL question. How are people expected to learn new content, roles, skills, if the ones that can help refuse to?
Please don't say 'join a guild' the LFD tool was supposed to EASE that, not make it more of a requirement.
