Since switching her alliance I have been trying to run some heroics on her, I just picked up my tier 9 chest piece and only 30 more badges to go and I can get the tier 9 helm to give me the 4 set bonus, that MAY be enough to boost my gearscore enough to tank some ICC/TOC runs….
Once again I am feeling the pressure as a tank – I get so frustrated that people in heroics do not spend ANY time waiting for the tank anymore, I realise most people are over geared for the content, but some of us are learning our feet. I hate it when I throw an aveger’s shield on mobs, then have not even laid consecrate and DPS are chowing on mob meat…I mean SERIOUSLY!!!! Avenger’s shield is like a bullet, grabs their attention and doesn’t do much else – and certainly doesn’t help on mobs where they are twoo far apart to be hit. Why is it such a hard thing to wait until the tank has at least HIT the fucking mob ebfore starting it. I have always and will always wait for the tank to get off consecrate or thunderclap or DnD or SOMETHING AOEish before going hell bent – there are very few times when I will hit a mob before the tank has.
I can see why people hate tanking and I can see why so many people just refuse to do it anymore, indeed one of our guild MT’s is deciding to call it quits for the xpac – hence I may be taking over that tanking spot. It is so easy to see why. I would hope that raiding is different, you can set the expectation of your raiders and PUG’s (maybe) so they give you three seconds alone time with the mobs…but wow…I have to work twice as hard as a tank….but I do enjoy it 😀
