A friend pointed this out to me a while back after I got serious about tanking on Inda, I really like it. The taunt jokes make me chuckle, but I also just like the song it parodies. <3 Johnny Cash.

ok, yes, that was pretty win.


However, what are these repair bills he speaks of... isn't that what DI is for?

DI is for smart paladins who want quick resets on boss attempts [thanks Amh!].

Best used after salving/bopping anyone beating warlocks in threat while they try to suicide in the back to save repair bills.

I doubt waiting for resses is ever faster than running back in, given the short walks and teleporters in modern content. Unless you can ress the entire raid -- assuming, of course, everyone is even within ress range -- before the people finish walking back, you have essentially saved no time.

Now back in my day, we had to walk back to C'thun. Uphill. Through the snow.

MT Death through DI is the fastest wipe method *nod nod*

*cough* on most encounters, but at Sindragosa ... a group frost breath is way more funny *cough*

Bye, RedAces.

Even faster if you make sure you DI your off-tank. Bonus points if he's a Druid or a Paladin so he can res you afterward.

But it's much more entertaining when he's a warrior, and you DI'd him only because it was you and him left, and you decided to save both your repair bills.

Bonus points if you can do this twice in a row.

I DI anyone that is close.

Healers > Co-tank > plate > hunters > anyone else I can.
Maybe Co-tank > Healers, but that doesn't often help the rezzing.

I DI other Paladins before anyone else. We coordinate with each other to save $ on repairs.

If they aren't there I just DI whoever is closest. I get real pissed when I DI a class that can rez and they don't rez me first.
