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

I got a Sun-Eater last night, pretty much the coolest sword in game.

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!!

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?

well, clearly I'm on a totally different level to most of you since my brag hardly cuts it compared to the kara and raid stuff you all get up to. But anyway, I got my first "you're an uber tank" pst today, on my first SL run as MT.

First off on Blackheart, only me and a resto shammy were alive as he hit the 33% mark and we killed him. Second on Vorpil no-one died and I didn't lose aggro once.

Got quite a few "omg" party messages at the end of the run, to which I replied "well you know what to say the next time you hear someone say pally's can't tank"

It's not much, but it sure put a big ole' smile on my face :)

Nightbane, Bubble method!

Postby Candria » Sat Aug 25, 2007 3:24 am

I had read about using bubbles/Trinket to avoid NB fear, but our raids always seem to have a fearward so I never got a chance to try it out as well as the fact that it seemed... well kinda crazy! This last Kara clear we did not have a fearward, so with only NB left we decided to call one of our warriors in to replace me. He was a good 10 mins away so I asked the raid for 1 shot at NB, I wanted to try out the bubble method. I didn't really explain to the raid what I was going to do, but they hesitantly agreed. As NB landed someone in vent called out, "this isn't going to go well.." The fight went almost as smooth as with fearward, with just a bit more button clicking on my part.

The raid was well... speechless. I hadn't gone into any details of what I was doing so people were pretty befuddled. Even after I explained what I did there was still a lot of amazement.

I had always considered NB an unfriendly fight for paladin tanks as I thought we required a fearward or at the least tremor totems. But having downed him without either, I would say that Paladin tanks can perform better than warrior tanks on this fight. I know that I outgear the encounter, but the fact that I can tank NB without the fearward crutch as well as tank all of the adds with no difficulty(something 1 Prot warrior would have more difficulty with) really suprized me.

I wonder if Blizzard ever envisioned Paladin tanks using this technic to down NB? Anyway... I'm happy.
