I don’t PuG very much anymore. I know some people that hate, absolutely abhor it! And yes, it can be painful. You’re thrown together with people of differing experience in their class. Some are on alts, some are on mains. Everyone had a different gear skill level, or at least it seems.
But, that isn’t why I don’t PuG very much anymore. I used to do it all the time. Just now though, I have limited play time. I’ll be on at night for about 2-3 hours. I only have enough time to run one instance, period. So, I wait for most of my guildies to get on, and we make a group. Most of the time we don’t need to fill a spot. But, every now and then we do.
This is what happened a couple of nights ago. We had to pug a healer, and we ended up getting a resto-druid named “Refresh…” something or other. I should have written down his name. He was a great guy. It was his first time in HVP, while the rest of us had been through it a couple of times. He didn’t complain when we wiped (twice), and kept a great spirit throughout the whole situation.
Refresh, if you’re out there. Thanks! Thanks for being a pleasant companion, in what can be a difficult instance.
