I hit exalted in the solo scenario where you breach the Isles walls. There is a never ending supply of Trolls who jump off the walls in groups of 5 and a lot of NPC's who put out small amounts of damage.
I just went Prot stood in the centre and taunted/shielded/judged as new ones came down and went from Honored to Exaulted in 30min ish.

On my alts I've used these mobs (and the statues they animate) for BP rep. They give 40-50 rep per mob and are really easy to kill.

Thought I would try to gear up my long neglected blood DK today from 486 ilevel to the 496 needed for SoO LFR. What a tortuous process! Do a wing of LFR and get one 502 piece, it will only raise you ilevel by around 1 or less. I realise now I should have been more active running Nalak groups on my alts, as a couple of 522 pieces would have made all the difference. Ended the day at only 491, decided to store up VPs, JPs and honour for after the patch to make some quick purchases.

There was a compensating amusement though - did LFR ToT wing 1 on a Sunday evening and on Council right at the very end, everyone in the raid died, killing themselves on an empowered Karza'jin. Fortunately, I had purgatory so we did not wipe but it was funny, a sea of black raid frames.

Not a frustration per se, but I've noticed a lot of other forums having incorporated [spoiler][/spoiler] tags. They're really quite useful! I don't know anything about running forums and/or managing BBCode versions, but would be nice to have if it's just a version update or something. :)

This is the BBCode we use on our guild forum for spoiler tags:

BBCode Usage:
Code: Select all
[spoiler]{TEXT}[/spoiler]


HTML replacement:
Code: Select all
<dl class="codebox"><dt>Spoiler: <a href="javascript: void(0);" onClick="var spoiler = this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('dd')[0]; if ( spoiler.style.display == 'none' ) { spoiler.style.display = 'block'; this.innerHTML = 'hide'; } else { spoiler.style.display = 'none'; this.innerHTML = 'show'; };">show</a></dt><dd style="display: none;">{TEXT}</dd></dl>


Might save a bit of time :)

The last season of Dexter is so terrible that Lem from The Shield making an appearance has been the highlight so far.

I agreed to watch the VMA's with my wife and son last night as a peacemaking gesture, since I was in a grumpy mood earlier in the day.

The only award that I was looking forward to, they gave away during the Pre-Show.
The only performance that was cool was The Macklemore.
And I'm still trying to figure out how Kanye West earned the title "rock star", or why the fuck people thought that was anything even remotely approaching "Cool".

Needless to say, if they want to watch it again next year, I'll just play PoE while chilling on the Chase Lounge, and they can have at it.

People who call new tanks "retards" in LFR raid chat instead of calmly explaining to them what they are doing wrong. It hasn't even been directed at me (I am mostly DPSing to get a feel for the bosses first) but that sort of behaviour really pisses me off. Gross.

My WoW connection is getting really unreliable. I usually DC once or twice a raid night, usually at a critical point (Durumu start of maze; Lei Shen p3 etc), which is not what you want in a tank. Plus random DCs when soloing, sometimes getting unplayable like just now (DC every 1 min). I don't know what to do - I disable recount, go to low settings and that can help on Lei Shen etc. But other times, I haven't a clue - every disabling all addons, I still DC.

I have a decent computer and a wide broadband connection, so it's unlikely to be hardware.

"tanks" in leveling dungeons that cant hold aggro on a single mob, constantly lost, skip bosses, and then ask why you are so mad when you ask them to do quests...
its like im not mad...you are just making my head hurt from all the fucking head-desking i am doing.

I wish people would be a little bit more humble. There's nothing wrong with warning your group that you might have trouble keeping aggro, or that you've never been in the dungeon before and might need some help with the way and/or tactics! Most people will be nice about it. If people then call you a noob or something, then at least you know you did your best and that they're probably just incurable dicks.

For the record, though, I'm having horrible problems with aggro on my mage on AoE packs - 4 stacked Arcane Explo with extra range is BIG.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I never had problem on any of my 4 tanks to hold aggro even from 500+ geared dps, despite most are stuck at 460ish ilvl.

All you need is to get in first and be able to actually press 2 buttons (swipe/trash for bear, sck/keg smash for monk, hotr/cons for pala, tc/shockwave for war, bloodboil/d&d for dk), and to go first.

If the dps is very high, chances are the pack is already dead before the strong aoe gets aggro.

If a tank manages to lose threat nowadays he's just bad in my opinion. :)

warriors at low level - ok ill give you that one
same with bears

but a paladin?
really?
esp after you get HotR, there is no excuse to not be able to keep aggro

a lot of those 2 buttons that worldie said arent snap threat, but as long as you pulled you should be able to keep aggro
and like i said in my first post..its not ebing able to even hold a SINGLE MOB that i had issues with..if you have issues holding a back before you class gets its main aoe threat ability, ok..dps should help focus on your target..but a single mob that shouldnt be an issue

i do agree that if you are new to tanking and/or the instance, SAY SO! i will be more than happy to help! but if you just blindly charge in, skipping most of the mobs we need to pull to even unlock bosses to finish, or lose a pack, say fuck it and pull another one while your dps and healer are all tanking mobs...yeah that is what i was posting about..THOSE "tanks"

Pala has an even easier time than other tanks as AS hits damn hard and packs with more than 3 mobs are very rare.
