Went for my first heroic last night, actually 5 of them, was the first time since being back online. We queued up the other night but I got HoR and I can’t do that just yet, I am not confident with my tanking so even contemplate that run. Certainly not as my first heroic back after 4 months anyway 😀
So last night we got VH to start – mmm nice and easy, then UP, Gundrak, HoS and then Nexus. Did quite well for forgetting to put up righteous defence in VH until the last portal 😀 Had one group of mobs go everywhere, but the group we were running with was doing just under 1.5k dps, which meant it was tough to keep up with the portals, but hubby was there doing 4-5k dps and picking up the slack…..we got there in the end 😀
I messed up a little with mob management, I just don’t have enough mana – i think I am wearing too much warrior gear and not enough pally gear…will see if it is worth fixing 😀 and I am not able to get aggro on all the mobs in group pulls quickly enough and then when the DPS lay in at the same time I am losing a mob occassionally… but no one died to a loose mob, which is good, I stayed out of the fire and I was managing to get the loose ones back pretty quickly….
More practice is needed. Hubby reckons I am a better tank than I was ever a mage, and he reckons I shoudl switch full time, but I am just not sure if I can let go of my mage – she is my collector toon and has all my achievements and I don’t want to lose that….but maybe for raiding I would be better as a tank? I do enjoy it immensley – as much as playing my mage – hence why I am so torn I think 😀
I also have my warrior as well which I could tank on, and given they are saying they are bringin back crowd control, perhaps my warrior would be better – no mana management to worry about and aweseom threat on single mobs…hrmmmm…..I do love my warrior as well….GAH!!! I SUCK!!!
