Hearing what happened to our guild, some guys from Kebab decided to sympathize with us and made this post on the forums:

It was worth a smile in this disastrous moment. Faith in humanity is a bit higher now.

Oh man, I fondly remember that. First Karazhan run, the warrior tank is telling me he'll take Attumen off to the side while I tank the horse.

Attumen liked me better. :D

Apparently, everyone else in the other runs had to separate them or the OT would go splat pretty quick. Whereas in his case, he wound up just sword & boarding DPS for that.

Apparently I either had a fucking monster of a warrior MT in my bc guild, or I was just really bad at the game

Everyone could be a monster tank in TBC if he got all the misdirects.

But the difference between paladin tanks and other tanks was even greater when looking at the murlocs (it was murlocs, wasn't it?) - hence "paladin tanks the adds" (well combined with our RL having switched to a druid tank shortly before we got that far in SSC, having been geared in our alt runs in Kara, and him wanting to lead while tanking as it was "easier" (I think it was).)


~ Add tankin came down to pickup. If the Warrior tank didn't suck, he could pick up adds. There were even guilds where a Holy Pally was the one who did the Murloc pickup.
Whereas Tidewalker tanking was a careful consideration of burst. Warriors could be Crushed since whatsisname ate through Shield Block, Bears furred their way past Crushes, we could take out Crushes entirely.

We had a holy paladin with Righteous Fury stand in the spot where the murlocs were tanked.

We had something like that on Moroes when I first got along on my paladin tank. 8 people where against the idea of me running in, tanking all the adds and the warrior to pick up the boss. Only the Warrior tank tought it would be funny :D And after the ninjapull the warrior made then, we never switched back to the normal "cc them all" tactic ^^

We tried that - our holy paladin went splat too often.

It was the times when Demo shout actually generated threat.

Still, hardly the optimal way.

I wanted to tank so bad in BC, but the guild I was in (mostly RL friends, but the guild leaders weren't) was anti-paladin-tank for some reason. Went almost all the way through BC with warrior and druid as the tanks, including Hyjal. I'm still not sure how the warrior managed to get threat on everything in there, but he did it.

They knew I wanted to tank, so I got the consolation prize of leftover tank gear after the dps warrior got his. Still ended up pretty well geared; we got a lot of tank gear.

Wasn't til Sunwell that I got to tank, and it ended up with me swapping prot/holy after almost every fight. That was annoying. Went elsewhere shortly after Wrath hit and main tanked all of Wrath and Cata.

Just heard about Spectator mode for pet battles.

We put a game inside our game, so that you can login to our game and watch someone play a game.

He's proud right now.

Just amazing they can put Spectator mode for pet battles, yet they still can't for Arenas which would be way more interesting to watch.

wait... what? I mean, hey, cool new features are cool and all... but that seems like an odd place to start. Unless, perhaps it's an easier test environment for something to be rolled out in a bigger context?

I guess this is where I have to ask Barathorn if I can share some of the porch.
