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. :)


Tanked MSV normal on my 458 monk with a 540 spriest and 540 mage, i had aggro issues. Only just managed to sustain threat, even on dogs where i solo tanked all 3. Vengance isn't a good as i thought.

True enough. What i really meant was "i wasn't expecting to have any aggro problems but i did".

If you're a freshly dinged tank in heroics and happen to come across a very well geared dps you could be in for a rough ride.

I never pay attention to my own health when I'm monk healing. So I die to dumb stuff, because I don't heal myself.

And there are still idiots in LFG who stand in stuff that kills you (and get annoyed when they die to said stuff).

I am also apparently a decent plate tank, as I actually took my blood DK into a heroic to tank (since that's all she has), and lost threat to our dps warrior a couple of times because he decided to be dumb, so I decided to let him deal with it. No one else could do it (also, the dps warrior plays a blood DK, so he was assessing me). It's only a frustration because I actually wanted to be a decent plate dps. Oh well!

Very minor stuff this AM.

Getting 5 surplus sigils when I still need 5 more of the other sort. It has really put me off the game.

Not getting a drop, I can live with but getting useless quest items feels really unbelievably lousy.

Failed on last attempt before patch to kill Ra-den (7%).

I'm completely infuriated that Fatal Strike works the way it does. I died to so many strikes that were 0.2 sec or less off. In case you all didn't know he casts it on you about 0.2 sec before the damage hits you. That's when the game decides of you're dead or not. Having SotR up on the damage itself has no effect on the insta-kill mechanic. So I'd have SotR up on the damage...then die, wow so fun. Or he delays at over 100 energy for over 3 sec to cast other things......herp dead.

The filling in the lateral cavity I have on my molar keeps breaking off. They have tried all kinds of shit on it. Makes me wonder if the best option is just to get a crown for an otherwise healthy piece.

I keep wondering why I continue to play, when this isn't really fun anymore.

I guess I'm hoping that the patch will make it more fun for me, considering we're down to 5 or 6 raiders, and our GM is actually mulling over the idea of potentially server-transferring later, if the virtual realms doesn't work out.

(Ah well, at least I don't have to deal with patch crap tonight! Test and paper instead!)

:(

Turns out, I did have to deal with patch crap last night. Wasn't too bad overall, all things considered, I guess.

Downside is that my hunter is at ilvl 493, stuck with a 463 weapon...lol

Only bright spot is that on my test last night, I scored perfectly.

This sort of is an amusement, success, frustration.

I'm soon to be assistant-less at work.

It wasn't working out. If you've followed my musings in the amusements, there is little surprise, as the list is long, but the straw that broke the camel's back was her attendance. 6 months on the job. 21 days missed. Seriously. How hard is it to just show the fuck up to work? So lets look back. 21 days missed out of 137 work days. 15.3% call off rate. Coupled with attitude, work performance, lack of performance, and.... well.... yeah. not hard to figure out.

I'm getting a raise to compensate. Success

I'm not getting another assistant until the spring. Frustration.

Oh well. I guess next time, I'm going to try a different approach to finding someone I can groom to take over the reins of this venture.

Not in SoO yet because the stupid-ass tank kept getting punted, leaving us to wipe on LS-25N for 3 hours.. our tanks are behind the curve certainly..

so, log in to raid on wednesday night...i notice everything is a little choppy and even on tuesday night when everyone and their mother was killing the celestials...it was choppy and i had to lower my settings to low...figured it was the patch.

anyway, wednesday i log on to raid...and we only raid two days a week so we keep our sanity. anyways, as soon as i walk into the raid...i drop from 60fps to 20...as soon as we fight the first boss...it goes to 2fps. i keep dying as i can't move out of a puddle because of the problem. we down first boss and get to second boss...game is unplayable at that point.

they call the raid...i was so pissed off. i did find a code on the wow forums because apparently this is a big issue and apparently it was affecting amd fx chips a good bit (i have an 8350). put the code in last night and it seemed to work but i'm going into lfr tonight to see if i'll get 30-40fps on jin'rokh on ultra like i usually can or 2fps. stupid computers.
