Void Reaver

Postby Songblade » Wed Feb 27, 2008 8:11 pm

So we're on Void Reaver and I decided to go all out. I popped a Flask of Blinding Light, spell damage food, some oil, and put on my threat gear, and with all that I was uncrushable with 16k health, barely under the health of the MT himself.

And wouldn't you know it, as soon as we pull him, I get aggro over him and his misdirect, and subsequently go 8 hits with no heals, in like 10 seconds, and die...

So now I've spent like 40-50g on this battle, did everything right, and again, I look bad because no one seems to realize that I am actually a tank -.-, despite the fact that this is at least the 5th time this has happened...

You need to tell your healers that they're supposed to heal whoever Lootreaver is meleeing, and not just the 'main tank'. Failure of communication do and often leads to needless death.

Same thing happens to me every week. I pull him and splat. Although, I manage to overtake the tank again, with no misdirects, by the end of the fight. They were impressed. Then I died a second time.

Yeah a pally tank stands almost no chance there, not because they aren't capable, but because of the "pally tanks suck" fallacy... -.- /wrists

If you're there as a designated tank, then your RL needs to grow a pair and start kicking healers from the raid who let tanks die because of some personal objection bullcrap they might have going.

If you're not there as a designated tank, don't pull aggro :)

Ask for assist and permission to do this.
Make a macro like thus: /rw I"M TANKING SO HEAL ME YOU LAZY SODS!
Press macro when you gain aggro.
Press it again 2 seconds later.
If still no heals after 4-6 seconds or when you feel uncomfortable, spam it.

/ed/ Just realised something from watching a pally healer in kara last night, he uses ToT healing, targets a mob and his heals lands on who ever the mob is fighting. Perhaps have someone neutral explain this idea to your healers.
I have ADHD and OCD...I keep forgetting to wash my hands.

tonight I was doing Gruul and we were having some trouble. RL decided I shouldn't be tanking but I decided I would build some aggro incase a tank dies as we have no third. Tank died, I am third, I say I am secondary tank. Hateful strike, 10k..... hateful strike 10k. Dead paladin.
