Not so much of a "omgwtfbbqkittens BL this person!!" so much as a "be warned and take care"...
I accepted a blind invite on PLD37 by an anon person. This was the warning sign I missed. The leader, Aayleisha, told us to go to Crawler's Nest.
The six of us, 37Paladin, 37Warrior, 37Warrior, 38Red Mage, 37Summoner, and *anon leader* (who after I /checked I figured she was a White Mage) pay the absurd chocobo prices and head to Crawler's Nest. The leader left before me, but arrived a good minute or so after me. <Hmm..>
We go in to the affectionally named "Sack room", only to find the Nest to be extremely crowded. (A good leader would /sea beforehand. <.<) The leader then said we'd fight beetles in Western Altepa Desert and Teleport-Alteped us.
We go to Revelation Rock, which takes us awhile since people had to get stuff in Rabao or whatever. We hang around at the base of the Rock, wondering where to camp. We run around looking, while the leader says nothing, and doesn't move her chocobo. About 5 minutes later, she comes to where we thought we could camp, only to say that it wasn't a good camp, because camping at the top of the Rock makes it too hard for the puller. I reply that if we camp in one of the grooves of the Rock, we'll get links and if we camp where there are no pops, it will take longer to pull. Aayleisha seemed to relunctantly agree, so we camped there.
Bad idea.. Those beetles are 10-14 levels higher than most of the people in the party, myself included. We ended up Tele-Alteping out. Luckily nobody died. However, we decided to change camps and kill Goblins at the Outpost in Eastern Altepa Desert.. and one of the Warriors said he had to leave. No biggie, we'll just replace him.
"WHM ok?" says the leader, Aayleisha.
<Huh?> Damage dealer please. So I tell her and she gets another Warrior, who happens to be anon. Okay, we're set to go. Only Aayleisha goes AFK for 10 minutes, so we wait for her to get back first.
We fight a Goblin and the new Warrior dings 39. <Hmm..> Okay, 39 is cool, especially since he's a melee.
One or two mobs later.. the White Mage dings 40. /sigh. No wonder she was anon.. she was the highest party member.. and a mage. Okay, well, XP hit wasn't too bad, so we continued..
Now for those of you who don't know, the Goblins in Eastern Altepa Desert consist of Traders (BST), Poachers (RNG), Robber (THF), Reaper (DRK), Digger (WAR). After killing a few of a certain type of mob, you can remember what type they are. We fought several more mobs when the leader, the WHM, Aay, suggested to the RDM that he Dispel the Goblin Digger because it seemed like we weren't hitting it for much damage. I replied no, that it doesn't have any buffs on. (Obviously WARs have higher defense than other jobs, that's why we were hitting it for slightly less than we were hitting the other mobs.)
This sparked an argument from the leader Aay, in which she basically said she knows what she's talking about because she's a RDM60. She continued to say that all non-mage Goblins have buffs. When I stated that they don't self-buff, but if there's a mage Goblin nearby it will buff them, and that were were no mage Goblins in the vicinity, so we didn't have to worry about it... Well, the Aay got bitchy. We continued on..
After exchanging some words, we rested to start a new chain. Aay was not resting, and had barely any MP, so I asked her nicely to rest MP. She obliged, but stopped resting around 50% HP. She just stood up waiting for the next pull.
Me: "Aayleisha, can you please rest MP to full ^^"
Aayleisha: "my mp is fine PLD"
She doesn't rest.. We wait a few minutes (everyone else has had full MP for quite some time now..)
Me: "you may be a RDM60, but you don't have Refresh or Convert on WHM40."
Apparently common sense doesn't agree with her. She replied: "you going to keep @#%^ing with me i see".
What.. the.. heck..
She then says she's looking for a replacement. I asked if it was for me or her, thinking this entire situation was a laugh riot. She says for herself, so I rejoice inside.
The next mob pulled was a Goblin Reaper. The RDM used Dispel and got rid of one of the Absorb effects, since it cast a few Absorb spells on me. This started a big argument pertaining to the argument earlier...
Aayleisha insisted that this proves her point.. that goblins have job abilities that give them buffs. When I explained that the Goblin Reaper is a DRK, and that it can only Absorb and buff itself, but that's it, it can't buff any other Goblin, Aayleisha insisted that's what she said to begin with. (I think she was referring to back when she told us that BST Goblins automatically come with Protect..) Another party member and I tried explaining to Aayleisha that it was a SPELL that was dispelled, not a job ability. Talking to Aayleisha is like talking to a brick wall.
After standing around for a bit, listening to Aayleisha spout time and time again that she was a RDM60 and knew what she was talking about, I gave up. I asked several times if her replacement was on the way (we weren't fighting anymore, she was just arguing and doing nothing else), I decided to leave the party. It was a waste of time (1.5 hours) to get a measly 1000 xp. Not only was it a waste of time, but I was subjected to idiotic comments from someone who proceeded to call me a "motha f*cka".
After saying goodbye and disbanding, I get a tell from Aayleisha saying: "i invited you to my party you come cause all this disruption over something ridiculous, hmmm".
Excuse me? I wasn't the one refusing to rest MP. I wasn't the one not Curing the tank out of spite. I wasn't the one limiting our XP. I wasn't the one continuing a petty argument. I wasn't the one going AFK without telling us.. and even while telling us. I wanted to XP, hence the reason I told her to rest her MP. A White Mage without MP is the one "disrupting" our party.
Me: "Learn to play the game with others, stop your PMSing and bitching, and perhaps others wouldn't leave "your" party. Thank you and Good bye."
Aayleisha: "add me to <Black List> <Thank you> <Take care.>"
I join a new party, with one of the members from the last party (who later commented how the new party was so much better than the last.) We go to Crawler's Nest and start XPing. Then I get another /tell...
Aayleisha: "one last thing this rdm 60 knows enough to have solo'd 10k exp on VT crabs in <Kuftal Tunnel>... I know my job!"
I /sea her and her comment says something along the lines of:
<I'm playing solo right now.>
SO @#%^ OFF @#%^S
I reported her vulgar comment to [GM]Myndon. Although she had already changed it by the time I had my little convo with the GM and I apologized for wasting his time since it was changed, he assured me that it was no problem, and that he would read the logs to see what her comment said previously, since it was offensive.
I <3 [GM]Myndon. :)
