There’s kind of a running joke of sorts that happens in most MMO dungeon PUGs that I’ve seen, where a group will tolerate exactly one wipe — but a second will cause everyone to desert the team and flee for other lands. Then again, there are dedicated teams that will ram their heads against dungeons and raids over and over until it’s beaten.
I don’t know where my threshold is for trying to conquer challenging content. When I think of this, I usually stray from group events and into the realm of solo quests, such as some of Secret World’s harder sabotage missions, that one Dungeons and Dragons Online quest where I had to guide rats through a deadly maze, and those two nights that I once spent trying to beat the World of Warcraft mailroom quest on the higher difficulty level.
