Speaking of changing stuff in combat: when the hell did they make it so you can't change trinkets?! Heroic Ramp, evil dragon boss, I go in w/ Adamanatite Figurine & Royal Defender (or whatever the crappy blue one is from Hellfire Penin) for the HP boost, then want to switch to DMC: Vengeance when it's up - can't. D: I cry a little, end up using a pot, HS AND Lay on Hands to live through it, but yeah - com'on.

It's been a while, at least a year or two. Maybe longer.

I don't like to air guild laundry in public, but frankly this is the biggest frustration I've had since 1.9. I present it not as a whine, but as a reminder that no matter how hard we work, we will face immense annoyances.

Loot council immediately (no deliberation) awarded our 2nd Bulwark of Azzinoth to a warrior who has been with the guild since our 2nd Vashj kill to replace his Hardened Heart. For reference, I have been with them since the week they killed Grand Widow Faerlina, tanked the server first Karazhan run, and would have taken the Hardened Heart as an upgrade. This warrior recently dissolved our 3v3 team after a bad night which he spent verbally abusing me for my mistakes, many of which were imaginary. We were at one point 19 rating away from my Vengeful mace.

I fricken hate it when a warrior feels he has to taunt a mob off me when it's the last mob in a fight and it's even marked for me to tank. Last night I was off tanking a mob in ZA, he tanked the first one with the skull, it was killed, the raid leader said to take the sheep, I'm still tanking my moon, then it comes time to kill the moon, he taunts it, taunt wears off and goes back to me, he does this three fricken times. I decided today next time he's going to taunt a mob that has been assigned to me I'm gonna bubble and /sleep and let him tank it then it will probably go one shot a clothie once taunt has worn off and I'll say in vent there you go, you wanted to tank him so bad, you got him bitch. He's puled this crap two nights now in ZA. There's anotehr warrior in my guild QQing because I say XXX encounter was so much easier with a prot pally in guild or vent. Says he's tired of hearing that every five seconds. There was another time I wound up tanking both atunemen/midnight and romulo/jullianne by accident. The hit my consecrate and then they cant pull them off. They get mad at me. I simply tell the healers to all heal me. Seems some warrior tanks get tank envy since they can't tank 3+ mobs or they feel threatened by tankadins since they have been IT for so long.

Annabelle that is called Tank Envy. Gestalt wrote up a really nice guide on how to handle it. Track it down and try some of the techniques listed.

I've heard pink pom-poms on a stick. Also pink purse.

But as I've used it more and more, the comments sting less and less.

I remember seeing that a few months ago but back then I was only tanking 5 mans so I usually got lotsa love from the rest of the group because I made the instances faster and easier. I'll look for it again. I was actually going to call it tank envy too but thought it too strong a word for that.

It's tank envy and I have a sneaking suspicion a bit of communication between you and the warriors will turn it around.

If not taunting back works you can always BoP the tank, that should do it :)

I could easily taunt it back but then it becomes a childish game, mine, mine, mine, mine *pulls mob back and forth*

I'll talk to the tanks before I do something to cause another guildie to die. I want to look like the bigger man for keeping my cool and doing my job properly. I used to be a rogue and I seemed to get along fine with the tanks. Same person, different class seems to make such a difference.

Still walking around with Nexus-Guard's Pauldrons... ;-(

I'm exalted with Sha'tar from running Botanica for Spaulders of the Righteous
I'm exalted with the Violet Eye and have never seen the Mantle of Abrahmis drop either.
Done several Heroic Sethekk Halls runs, and never got the Spaulders of Dementia to drop.

Bah, hopefully either Maulgar or VR will drop T4/T5 paladin shoulders this week! Walking around with green shoulders sucks! :x

Tried having a conversation with him and a couple other people watching? Pull them into a channel and talk about it. Guild's tankadin was all emo till yesterday because of this kind of shit.

Been running Gruul for the past few weeks to get the ALD to counteract my definency in Defense. It never dropped. Last night I go with my Hunter and sure enough, it dropped.

Although I'm undeniably lucky with drops, I feel you, man. Figurine didn't drop so far, I got *all* my thrallmar rep from running SH. Friendly to revered ain't a small feat if you only go in 1 instance.

Then there's Sun Eater and JadeSkull...never got those either. I already gave up on jadeskull actually. that bitch drops all the time when i do it on my warlock...Same for sun eater.

Destro locks who get Nightfall procs on the 1st tick of Corruption when I'm trying to LoS a pack of mobs and the SB happens to crit.

Also Dual Shamans with Chain Lightning and LO procs.

I was in a heroic SV run last night where the rogue kept yelling at me to let him sap, and that I was being too impatient with the shield on patrols where he'd sap one (i.e. to let the others move away before shielding to not break sap). Oh, and the mage trying to sheep things and getting huffy when they got into consecrate.

Nevermind the fact that all the CC wasn't required. If it hadn't been 3 in the morning I would probably have been a lot more argumentative.

The group I regularly run with has taken to /rofl-ing at people who ask which symbol is sap or sheep when we take someone new.

I just respond, "Don't worry about CC, I'm a pally tank."
