I shouldn't be able to pull a whole dungeon group through an instance through my own sheer badassitude. If I suck, wipes should happen. If everyone but me sucks, wipes should still happen.
Corborus is admittedly harder if you have no ranged dps, or none who can kill crystals quickly enough (I believe they have 6k HP each?). But most ranged dps have the ability to drop those crystals super fast. I've seen Arms warriors go in before the crystals activate and bladestorm them down. I've killed them on my rogue with FoK, standing at the edges so if I got hit it would only be one at a time. As for the one shots, you get something like 2-3 seconds to see the rumbling dirt and get out of the way. That gives you time even if you have latency, and the spiders don't do much damage or have much HP, so they can easily be killed by a few Fan of Knives, or multi-shots, or whatever.
I guess my problem with your statement is this: Why shouldn't a fight be dependent on the group doing their jobs right?
