My Raid Leader Implemented a New Rule Last Night.

The rule? No using Ra'Sha's Sacrificial Dagger in the middle of a boss pull.

We were on council and the boss was at 95 energy and 94% HP. Yes, our DPS was that bad that pull...
Well, our tanks have binds set up to talk to individual people in vent, I'm one of the people from one of them. Well, we quickly devised a plan... Both tanks, myself(healing), two DPS, and one of our Resto Druids all decided to Sac at the same time.
One tank in public vent did a countdown. All 6 of us dropped at the exact same time. The raid leader had no idea what was going on and freaked out. The other healers for some reason went frantic trying to heal people through the bosses meleeing various people.

It was hilarious. Then the raid leader yelled something about how we shouldn't do things that cause wipes like that and implemented the new rule regarding the dagger.

It was worth it.

So you wanted to troll people by killing yourselves in a raid? In the process wiping the group probably multiple times and causing a huge headache for others....

It's almost like that was the whole point or something. But honestly, it was going to be a wipe anyway. 95 Energy and they had only managed to knock 6% off the boss? DPS was wayyyy too low. Some of them were slacking.

Eh, it saves a repair bill so I can understand the want to use it. I would just wait out of courtesy.

I don't know your particular raid group or how new your group is to ToT, but generally raid leaders want the raid to try and make it as far as they can into the fight, even on a guaranteed wipe on new content for people to get the experience of the fight so they know what to do next time. More than that, the 'wipe it' command is almost always issued by the raid leader, and taking it upon yourself to bypass that is disrespectful.

Once could be considered amusing, twice could be considered anoying to others and third time could easily be seen as taking the p*ss out of raiders & result in kicks or other punishment from RL or officers to hindering progression.

It sounds like it was pretty funny to me. In a situation when they're already gonna wipe there's really no harm in it--and from the sound of the story they only did it the one time.
