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.
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.

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


I was the same way.. only to have the mantle drop the day before I got my t4 :)

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."

Possibly having made an absolute balls of my trial period with my new guild due to having been sick the whole time IRL, with all added moodiness and ninja-AFK'ing for painkillers ><

Saturday night, clearing Karazhan. Pull the last pack of trash before Curator and half the raid disconnects. We manage to kill the mobs, then everyone else disconnects. Can't get back in for over an hour. Boo AT&T.

Sunday night, Gruul raid. We finish killing HKM and are about to start clearing to Gruul, server goes down for almost an hour. We manage to actually get almost the entire raid back online and into the instance, and sub in replacements. We wipe 5 times to Gruul and call the raid. Only afterwards do I find out from my guild leader that "paladins can't tank Gruul". Ugh!

same thing happened on our server during a heroic run. didn't affect everybody though, but we had to scramble to find a replacement. the replacement was crappy at CC though, kept on breaking his own traps and not feigning death when he broke the trap so i could pick it up.

that was the same night as our multiple attempt at Moroes. the one holy priest in our guild suddenly decided that she did not enjoy playing her priest anymore, and isn't getting her keyed for kara. we ended up having to grab a shadow priest from another guild for shackle on Moroes, and we finally got him down. previously mentioned hunter couldn't trap in there for the life of him :roll:

I feel your pain, I only need 2 items in Kara, maiden's gloves and the pocketwatch. I run with my pally and both never drop, we then had an alt run on the weekend and sure enough the gloves drop :(. I think I will be getting my T5's before maiden gives me hers.

However I did get my ALD late last week on a very rare trip into Gruul's :).

Having since hit 70, I have a List of things I want to make myself the best tank I can be (I'm already the best tank for my guild, since the last two apparently didn't know how to gear, or were trying to keep as much mana as they did health...).

Nothing on that List includes pvp/arena gear.

Friend: You need to PVP!
Me: Why?
Friend: Quickest way to get good gear for heroics and Kara, to start with.
Me: I am in no hurry, there are only two people in my guild keyed for Kara, and I am not one of them yet. Plus, you KNOW I dislike PVP.
Friend: Go do AV, damnit.
Me: ......

I don't like to PVP except on my rogue a little bit, damnit all. QUIT TRYING TO MAKE ME PVP....it'll just make me go hide out on my wimpy little shaman.

Oh god. Why do I get this dreaded feeling that WotLK is going to kill the game for me.

I had an argument with one of my guild warlocks who will be rerolling DK when it comes around. I mention the 2-Hander tanking of a DK, and he's all like, fark that, I'm gunna dual wield tank. More attacks means more parries. I'm just sitting there, going what. the. fuck.

He seriously thought that GETTING parried was a good thing. I spent like, 15 minutes TRYING to explain that it's not HIM that's parrying, it's the MOB. It didn't help when our retarded warriors chimed in saying that I knew nothing about how tanking works. Needless to say, these are warriors who think they're all that, because they're fully decked out in BS and S1 epixx, so OBVIOULSY they know shit about anything.

Earlier they both even said that they loathe tanking, and are much happier as Arms and Fury. -_-'

I could probably out tank them on Terrin, which is sad.

At least our Main Tanks at the moment are a Druid and a Paladin who know how this tanking thing works. I would HATE to trust anything more than Normal 5mans to our current warriors. =(

I honestly don't know. He's a very intelligent man, but the two he plays are a fire mage and a combat rogue. And he likes pvp.

As I am a tank, I am good for flag carrier or tanking in AV. Whoopee...

Yeah, I'll pass.

New Frustration: Fire mages who can't control their aggro. Only thing worse than that is TWO of them who can't control their aggro.

Please, for the love of my sanity, DON'T cast a pyroblast so it slams into the mob moments before my shield bangs them in the head, and especially DON'T go doing it to the mobs who didn't get hit with the AS!

And really, if you MUST have aggro, and you find out you are dying, please see this new thing that Blizz gave to all mages. It's called Ice Block.

Bah still not getting the scarab or a pocketwatch :(
