Well, the pathetic category should be noted as afk out of nowherr, they just stop. Especially given that you can still type and converse during cutscenes and loading screens now, there's no excuse for being MIA during a group event without notifying anyone except out of sheer indifference to your group. If you tell me your afk before you leave, i'm fine with you gone for the rest of the day, shit does happen. It's those morons who just up and walk away for a while to smoke a cigarette or something dumb and say nothing (dynamis assholes for example).
My favorite gripe in the beta thus far is the idiot whiners who shout for directions to everything. Seriously, western thanalan, every 20 minutes "Where do I get Orange Juice?" or "Where's copperbell mines?". The OJ....seriously go to a fucking shop and check for it, and the mines ARE ON THE FUCKING MAP OPEN YOUR GODDAMN MENU FOR ONCE JESUS. Seriously, this isn't ffxi, nearly any info you need for a quest is right at your menu. I will admit, however, that I nubbed out on a quest where you had to find some workers and /doubt them. 2 of them were inside a building that I didn't realize I could enter. Small series of shouts later, I was on my way again.
Definitely maining marauder at release. I realize that I make a great tank, I haven't found a group that I couldn't keep safe except for my last copperbell run. One idiot archer kept pulling the groups over and targetting a different mob from the one I would have stopped on, forcing me to expend extra tp on overpower and tomahawk spam instead of killing single enemies with Heavy Swing+Maim/Skull Sunder combos. Even after asking him to, then demanding him to, and finally threatening to leave if he didn't stop, he just kept on fucking it up. He also singlehandedly fucked up the slime fight by actively attacking the slime and pulling hate, followed by repeatedly killing the bombs and generally wasting all my tp and the healers MP curing him and then me. Such an easy fight....ruined by such a stupid asshat. Best part is he got an aetherite bow and a foestriker skirt out of it...how do the assholes always score?
