Ok so one time I had this suuuper uppity and egocentric tank. The dps facepulled once by accident on the way to the final boss of the dungeon, and the tank basically crossed his arms and refused to pick up the enemies that were pulled. The dps was actually apologizing and being nice about it, but the tank then starts bitching about how the dps player is garbage and if the dps wants to be a tank then he can tank, and he’ll only tank what he pulls. So I jump in and start telling the tank he should get off his high horse, remove his head from his ass, and play nice. He bitches at me, so I tell him to stop acting like such a prima donna because he’s not so irreplaceable, necessary and invaluable that we’d tolerate that nonsense.
So the tank goes quiet and seems to step in line, tanking the enemies normally up to the final boss. The final boss is going normally, until towards the end, he suicides and refuses to take my raise spell. Wow, ok, fine. I’m a scholar in ffxiv, so I can toss out shields and heals as needed. So the bard who originally facepulled starts tanking and kiting while i shield him and the black mage dps’s her butt off. We win with the tank still on the floor.
I say “I told you that you were unnecessary.” He immediately leaves without a word.
