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.

Guild-first Curator kill (on our 4th attempt), then went to chess and tried Aran a couple times. Then I notice that our guild has gone all the way from Attumen about 5 weeks ago to Curator tonight, clearing half of Karazhan's bosses, and has done so with tankadin MT and druid OT the entire way. We've basically had a prot warrior in there just once, back on the first Attumen night, and they died to stables trash mobs.
Two accounts, two tankadins! Raaar.

Got the epic boots from Heroic Blood Furnace on my first run. Not a huge success, but still made me happy.

Got into a new guild about a week ago, after 2 weekends unguilded farming for my epic flyer. I was 1 of 2 tanks in Kara, tanking some trash and switching off for Nightbane (? the dragon, 3beam boss). I healed for Prince, what I could (I have 1300 + in prot spec). JoL and loldps then aggroing loose elementals on Shade. Tanked Illhoof and the spawns. had a hard time keeping them on me unfortunately, seed just does to much damage/threat.

Tanked summoner 3 for Mag for the first 3 hours of attempts, but had to log off to sleep (damn RL, i hate working). Apparantly they downed it sometime after that.

Got Helm of the Stalwart Defender and should have 3 SSE's in the mail tonight, will get the Heroic Helm once I can snatch up 9 more badges. (BTW, heroic bot is wicked easy with a guild run. I dont know how geared they were but our guild is just doing Mag now so it cant be that much. the bosses just hit harder is all, strats dont change or anything.) I'm also 5/8 of my Furies cards and have the gold for the rest!

So yeah, theres my accomplishments of the last few weeks and upcoming week too :D I'm excited and looking forward to being handed my own Kara group soon. woot!

Finally got my Bracers of the green fortress this weekend after going through Slavepens heroic with the crafter - our guilds maintank warrior who went dps all the way except for on Quagmirran.

Im now 6 badges short of the libram, im at 3% crushable now and the libram will allow me to be a bit more creative with gear.

im 2K rep short of exalted with sha'thar, got the money for the shield, enchants and all. I might even buy the healing mace and get over 1100 healing, since I got lucky with healing drops while repfarming TK.
So, its been a good weekend for me.

Had our first night of real attempts on Prince Malchezaar last night. We got him, third attempt. He didn't manage to crush me at all, which I was damned pleased with. Smacked through Phase 2, without having to use a single healing pot or healthstone, and with only two specced healers (and our Feral Druid co-tank, who was healing).

I got me a Gorehowl (our Fury warrior didn't want it), the Justicar Faceguard (nice for my threat set, again, I was the only one who could use), and I also got a Shermanar Great-Ring (our Druid already had it). Unfortunately, the Great-Ring is being banked until I get Wrynn Dynasty Greaves.

From there, we decided to have a first look at Illhoof. We one-shotted him, the first time we engaged. I was tanking all the Imps with Consecration and RD, while our Druid co-tank held Illhoof, and a DPS warrior nailed Kil'Rek.

Small success, but i've been struggling to break 10k HP unbuffed for a while now. I finally got my Timewardens, socketed it with 3 solid stars and i was still just shy of 10k. I contacted a friend who whiped me up a Cobrahide Leg Kit and that added another +30 stamina and puts me at 10,057. I'm excited. Once i get my tankatronic goggles(waiting on a primal nether -_-), then i'll feel alot more comfortable going into heroics.

Like i said, small...but monumentous for me. I've been struggling to get the gear, but it seems like every piece i replaced had less and less stamina than the previous one, but more desirable stats in other areas.

Big Small-time

Postby Ardaic » Mon Aug 27, 2007 7:26 pm

So, I've been pushing the limits for a while of what I *should* be able to do. Was told I needed 10k health unbuffed for heroics. First one at 9k...

Anywho, I broke 10k last week (10,017, actually) and then I gained 390 over the weekend - I think, don't quote me on the exact figure though - my defense jumped from 461 to 484 thanks to some Enduring Talasite, Lightwarden's Girdle (Did an aldor and scryer group, which made it cake to down Socrethar) and Cloak of Eternity. Lost a touch of block without ol' Ironscale, but it was great. All of that was in preparation for what I thought to be failure: Heroic Shadowlab. Didn't think I was ready for the *big* heroics yet, but turns out I was wrong...

Downed the first three bosses like nothing (picking up some arcane resist pants along the way) and unfortunately couldn't drop Murmur as he kept killing the dps and healer. Would've been nice to finish the job, but overall I turned some heads and took a lot of hits - precisely what I try to do in instances.

Last part of my little joy-rant: the cockles of my heart warm every time I've an epic-geared hunter in my group who's trying to pull off of me for a trap, and even with Might, Wisdom or Kings, they can't peel if my shield touched it. Considering I'm all in blues, I'd say that's pretty affirming to the power my paladin can pack.

I agree with you on this one ... I have a pug hunter who tags along with me on a semi-frequent basis, and still hates the fact that he can't pull off me to CC.

"Dude, lemme friggin' trap!"
Me: Meh, guess it's no CC for this pull! :evil:

For non-heroic instances, my general statement is "I don't believe in CC"

My good friend from brazil has been playing on Joanadark, my warrior, and was telling me the other day about how he keeps getting all these tells every single day from random level 1s.

In his words:

"Yeah...they either say 'Oh yes thank you so much, you say such great things for me' and I tell them 'Thanks! I really appriciate it!", or they say to me 'You are so bad and talk all this bull shit' and I tell them 'Sorry this is the character of my friend.'"

It made me laugh my head off for like an hour.

I need to post on my paladin more.

Tanked Gruul on our first kill. Well I say tanked, I died at about 25% and the Druid solo tanked him the rest of the way. :D

No sheild love though. I am doomed to subsist on the fugly Arena shield.

I've just hit 12.7k HP unbuffed pre kara. Can go up to 12.8 if I switch some rings around and assume I'm getting MoTW. Go me :p
