So I just shamed a guild into leaving a normal Mogu'shan Palace run, but...

I was feeling really proud of myself too

I've been playing my DK and Rogue throughout the expansion, but decided to use my reading week break to level my Fury Warrior, who was my main during Cata

So it's going easy, he's fully DS geared and I pick up two Swarming Cleavers for him, once I hit 87 I queue for a random and get Mogu'shan Palace, grouped with a guild trio of a healer, tank, and dps, along with a mage from another realm who is unassociated

We start clearing trash before the first boss and I'm doing great, topping the charts, doubling or tripling the other two guys putting out great numbers, but I notice I'm essentially tanking because the bear tank can't hold threat

So on the last trash pull before the boss, the tank says "Try to be more careful with your threat", and his guildmate hunter is like "lol who?" (I'm pretty sure the hunter was a girl irl because he was talking about taming a pet in the dungeon, and who else would care), and the bear is like "He knows who I'm talking about"

I know that if I don't mince my words I'll get booted because it's 3 to 1, so I calmly and politely explain that there isn't anything I can do if the tank is having a fundamental problem holding threat, and these players (who at this point clearly do not know what they are talking about) try to make excuses about how bears need a lot of ramp up to gain threat, which lol

As we're waiting for the boss RP to finish, I again calmly and politely explain that they should not lecture if they don't know what they're talking about, and they tell me I'm bad, I wait a few seconds before attacking the first mini-boss and end up pulling threat anyway, I tell the druid that he's bad and he needs to learn his class, and he tells me something about how level 87 warriors in Cata gear shouldn't talk, which cements my suspicion that he is bad since DS gear lasts until Townlong or Dread Wastes anyway

Next mini-boss I tell them I'll wait ten full seconds before attacking since this is a special needs tank, so I do and end up pulling threat again, druid and healer are getting pretty upset, trying to mask their frustration by telling me I'm mad

I do the same thing on the last mini-boss except I count from 1 to 10 in /instance, and again pull threat and die this time, luckily I still topped charts on the encounter as whole by a pretty significant margin, I'm elaborating on how bad the druid is and explaining that he is probably the one that is mad, and Meteoric Greathelm drops which I win because no one else could roll on it

I expect to get kicked at this point, but surprisingly all three of the guild fellows drop group leaving the mage and I alone, who just says "=[" and I explain that they knew I was in the right and that's why they slinked away in shame, their confidence clearly decimated

The mage and I both zone out to keep doing quests, I notice there's a 3 minute timer on when I boot the mage out, so I do just because lol, and while I'm doing quests alone I realize that I had been in Defensive Stance the entire time, probably since the last dungeon I ran as Prot at 86, so it turns out I was sort of wrong the whole time

I feel sort of bad but I mean what can you do

Actually, this means you were fully wrong the whole time. But what can you do eh tc?
