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?

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

T4? :S

Aren't like all 3 Engineering helms better than the T4 helms?

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.
