Well . . . OK Then

I'm a pretty casual player. I don't group because I really don't have the time or inclination to do so. I just run around soloing and basically staying out of other players' way.

Well, I'm in Northend and I did a pretty noob thing by getting on the zeppelin in Westguard Keep. I didn't know it was for a daily quest. I have a tendency to just go off and explore. I figure that as long as I'm not getting in anyone's way then it doesn't matter if I jump on a zeppelin or boat or whatever.

Well, I'm standing there like a big dummy and just looking at the scenary. I'm kind of hoping it would take me to the other side of Northend but whatever. So this dwarf asks me to group with him. He didn't whisper it but just let the box pop up. I declined. He then whispers to me that I need to accept the invite.  In the next whisper, he tells me that we have to be in a group to do the quest. So I'm about to tell him that I don't have the quest (I would have probably added a "sorry" in there because I almost always do when I decline something) and he starts saying "What is wrong with you?! Why is everyone on this boat a dip****?" He's saying this out loud for the benefit of everyone but really there's only three of us on the zeppelin.

And just as we come back around to the keep he whispers again and says, "Do you even know what this boat is for?" Uh, no, but I'm not being a jerk about it.

And so now I'm checking online to read about the quest and none of the descriptions say that it's a group quest but only that it makes the quest much easier if you group. So . . . if he had just got to work on the quest instead of yapping at me the whole time, he probably could have done it in only a couple of runs.

So yeah. I did a noob thing. But, IMO, he was out of line. I know this isn't a big deal but it just seems like all the little irritations caused by other players since Wrath came out are getting worse.

Now if you'd been jumping up and down just next to the zeppelin going
"/y HOW I DO QUEST?"
he'd have a point.... but you just tootling about minding your own business? Not getting in anyone's way, screwing with anyone else's quest?

[shrug]

He's an idiot.

Agreed. I probably just would have ignored him. Not /ignore, but just not replied to his tells.

Yeah, I never replied but with the last whisper I just put him on /ignore.

You know, I checked the quest out because I thought I had done something wrong and seriously messed up his quest. I'm glad other people think he was out of line too.

Yeah, just standing there on my mount toward the back of the zeppelin. :/

He's on ignore now, of course.

People do seem to be a bit testy lately. They get irritated with people asking questions and things over trade and general...which can be annoying when you see the same thing over and over...but its not like they can look everything up at the moment...thottbot, wowwiki, and so on are pretty much useless (I could be wrong, but it seems when I look for something it isn't there). EVERYONE IS NEW TO THIS STUFF, LAY OFF!

I'd like to add that questhelper is a lifesaver since other websites are failing with the new content.

Every time the game changes, it seems to bring out the worst in people. One of the reasons why I usually stay away from seasonal stuff.

On my server, when we we about to unlock the badge vendor on Moneywell Isle, there was a pile of people, mounted, standing on the questgiver so we couldn't complete the quest. Same thing for the jewelcrafting vendor. Same sort of thing with people flagging for PVP and then standing on all the questgivers, so you'd right-click to pick up a quest and attack instead, and the arcane guardians would squash you flat.
