Bad things are happening in Stormwind – and beyond.

The Hand of Lothar, they call themselves.

Yva Darrows was their first target.

Tirith and Aely were their second and third.

They have since… expanded their reach and escalated their methods …

You know you have THAT GUY in your Raid when..

(Who is THAT GUY? )

  • He repeatedly asks for cleanses on Grobbulus.  Or, in some cases, repeatedly cleanses people during Grobbulus.
  • You have him muted on vent before the raid even starts. (Ila)
  • He does less DPS than the tank… and the tank isn’t AOEing (Matticus)
  • The healer is a Resto Shaman who doesn’t know what Chain Heal is, much less what it does. (Stop)
  • You see the pyroblast heading for the boss before the Tank is in range. (Siha)
  • Golemagg shows up and before “guy” can fess up… someone else is playing Britney Spears’, “Oops, I did it again” over Ventrilo. (Veneretio)
  • You’re all buffing at the entrance when the scripted fight starts.  For the third week in a row. (Awlbiste)
  • The DK insists that Tanking in Blood Presense is how he ALWAYS does this place. (Maerdred)
  • He spams the DPS meters after every fight, but is also winning on threat (Arrens)
  • Your tank shows up with only a 2H weapon (Wukki)
  • The hunter Misdirects the Priest. (Chris)
  • The guy doing less DPS than the tank starts telling people how to play (Salanthe)

I put this question to the WoW Twitterati, as well as to my guild, and these were some of the answers they came up with.  I’m sure you can add to the list!

**I chose to use the male pronoun throughout this list, because “he or she” gets old, and when you’re talking about THAT GUY it just makes sense.  I am in no way suggesting that THAT GUY is always male!

  1. The money log in the guild bank only shows THAT GUY and his ridiculous repairs – because he can’t understand his auto-repair addon.

  2. When he repeatedly asks for Arcane Brilliance in Sunwell.

    “The hunter Misdirects the Priest. (Chris)” Lol that happened to us on Bloodboil one night…classic.

  3. The Priest starts casting G.Heal on the tank as soon as combat starts and then boast when they always top the heal meters but wonder why they are OOM at the end of each trash pull. When the same heal meter is used to show them that 60% of their TOTAL healing was overheals they tell the raid that the meters are wrong.

  4. You spend 5 minutes explaining tactics over Vent & then you feel a slight rage as you read the chat log.

    [R][That Guy]: BACK!
    [R][That Guy]: Does this guy have any tacts? What am I doing? Just DPS?

  6. “That Guy” is like, “your grandma” or “your mom” ^^

    You know you have That Guy ™ in your raid when: Someone demands that the druid tank heal–while they’re tanking.

  7. “That Guy” is the one is the first to complain about repair bill, wiping, and wasted mats, but is the first to die each pull (due to pulling agro, or just not knowing how to move).

    darksaturn7s last blog post..Page edits are awesome fun.

  8. Wow….I don’t recognize the names. But I do recognize the blunders….some of them repeatedly! Is it possible that some of the same people play toons on different servers?

    Oh…and to go along with Parsi’s comment, that GUY is also the one that DEMANDS a BRez from the druid tank during the fight.

  9. @Gunsnbutter:

    Oh no! Those aren’t people that have DONE those things! Those are other people that write wow blogs and have their own THAT GUYs to deal with!

  11. It doesn’t count if you MD the priest just once… on purpose… does it???

  12. - That Guy is the one that AFKs without telling anybody. For five minutes at a time. Repeatedly. And still gets near the top of the DPS meters despite being in the bathroom taking a leak for the first quarter of a boss fight.

    - That Guy uses his knockback ability (Blast Wave, etc.) after the tank has gotten the trash all gathered nice and tight. I don’t care how cool it looks, this is WoW, not pool…quit trying to bank-shot the trash into the corner pocket.

    Lewiss last blog post..Forget coal in your stocking…

  13. Oh, I forgot one, not so much for raids.

    - That Guy puts up Path of Frost/Water Walking right before your group jumps down a big water jump, and laughs while everybody splats and tacks 5g onto their repair bill.

  14. I have to shamelessly borrow from the forum post you mentioned a few posts back.

    “Constructs in the raid” about sums it up… XD

    Asaras last blog post..Good morning, blogland! (nice long WoW post for ya!)

  15. THAT GUY bitches all the time about never getting loot.
    … when he’s never raided with your group before.
    … when it’s your very first kill of boss in question.
    … when his class can’t use any of the loot that dropped ANYWAY.
