A continuiance from an earlier post I made.

Night 2 in Kara..

So tonight we went to Aran and Illhoof, both were downed and I am so excited. My guild has always had trouble with Illhoof, and we tore him apart. Took a few tries, but we did it! I cannot begin to tell you how much fun this has become for me. We had only 1 tank after the first pull after Curator thru Illhoof and Aran, tanked both and both went down. We had 2 Pally healers and it was amazing. So yeah, sleepy, and rambling. Just very excited!

Tanked the frst time in The Eye and Gruul's Lair..

Wasn't pretty much amused due to my bitchin' RL :(
Started with tankin all the adds on the Al'ar fight... after they couldn't find a place for me standing, i died 4 times due to be kicked in his freaking bomb -_-
after i found a place on my own, Al'ar died. Never got any respect for that, only a flame that i tossed a Adept's to push my spelldmg (had around 16k hp, which was enough for the adds -_-) and not a flask... (changed that after the second wipe after my GM said it to me.. not the RL......)

VR wasn't that good again... hadn't exactly 0 seconds aggro of him.. so i tossed about 4 Manapotions so i could spam Righteousness.. (think i had not enough spelldmg..., 220 unbuffed, and i couldn't toss adept's *GNARR!*, oil was in of course.)

Solarian was the better one.. i "tanked" her... wasn't really a problem, we fucked her up in a short amount of time.



Then into Gruul's, after i had taken 3 times Trash-aggro of off a warrior MT i got flamed... and had to tank the damn priest on the Maulgar fight.. first time a badass rogue stunned him, right after my Avenger's missed.. so i "lost" aggro, pushed wings, taunt and spammed and got him back... still no respect, but flames :(

On Gruul, i died after the Hurtfull-Strike OT died... have to say that i died exact 2 seconds before the damn mob fell.


So... mhh.. not really a success, but i have 80 DKP now! YEAH -_-

Got my T4 shoulders last night (happened to be my worse show as a tankadin. Disconnected the second the pyro blast hit. Fortunately, I was on the priest, so a Rogue or something must have took control of the situation.

I hate winning loot when I feel I didn't deserve it.

Fortunately, I think I proved myself a little in a couple of earlier raids. Like when I was 2nd of threat for Gruul. (Read as not only ahead of melee, but ALL dps).

Kara tonight... I'm hoping I can really excel tonight.

Well, another week come and gone, more people come and gone. Had to get some new recruits and get them attuned to BT/Hyjal and lo and behold Belt of the Guardian plans finally dropped so I picked them up and made myself one after waiting months for it. Biggest thing to brag about lately though, is I broke the 20k HP mark last night on Supremus as an OT as our druids were MIA. Not that it matters much, but I believe had my MS warrior counterpart had 5/5 talents in it he'd be giving me an extra 54hp =P

Void Reaver down, <Adaptation> guild first! Baelor, who has never ever tanked anything bigger than Prince Malchezaar, held aggro for the first 25%, the last 10-15%, and had aggro intermittently throughout the fight. All in all, I probably tanked Void Reaver for 50% of the fight. And that's without Improved Judgment, Deflection, Benediction, or 1-hand spec!

Woot!

Passed on the t5 token though. I really don't like the shoulders, I feel like I'm better served by the Justicar ones. Unless someone has a compelling argument otherwise, I'll wait til the other rogues/paladins/shamans have t5 tokens to grab one. Was hoping for the piston or the bracers :x

Got my libram of repentance and eaglecrest warboots. Sitting at 11k unbuffed and still uncrushable. Here's hoping for some decent Kara drops- a bit more and I should be able to take down anything there.

Also, for those who read my sob story of Heroic Mech... Last two runs went much better... even with two or three mobs on me at a time. First run had a couple wipes, mostly due to the druid healer being unable to keep up with the destroyer's damage output. Run last night was pretty much flawless. Five total party deaths, three of which were on Neth- freaking RD bug! Finished her off with only myself up and the healer, DS and HoW for the win. Two other deaths were a mage that did not respect the 30% range rule. First time I've cleared a heroic without dying myself.

Now if I could just get some decent shoulders...

Well, my guild finally downed Magtheridon Tuesday on our third try...I'd been on vacation for 2+ weeks so that was nice.

Then last night we killed Void Reaver on our third try again, hah. Hoping to continue the streak tonight in SSC with Tidewalker, hopefully, and/or Lurker. Murlocs here I come :twisted:

nice one dude, did the same with gruul last night for our first kill.

also went in to the eye for a look; had no troubles with the trash in there; aoe'd the falconer pulls with no problems!

still waiting for the time when theres a reason to step aside from my tanking position in favour of a warrior to help our progression!!

First Nightbane kill for me, second for the guild, making the second Kara clear for the guild. :)

Also, I got my tier 4 helm, and now I can shelve my tankatronic goggles.... what am I saying?!?

This might not be anything big but im 2 tempest keep runs away from 12k health and 13k armor unbuffed while remaining uncrushable... PRE KARA!

Now all i need to do is let people know that a pally can hold it down to secure a tanking position in kara which might be tricky... also retire my warlock main... which might also be tricky i tripled all the dps which was pretty sad... and im not over exagerating :S better guild perhaps?
