Not like you really could tank naxx at 60, and at 70 you couldn't either, since mobs hit for nothing and you run oom too quick.

I've tanked most bosses in naxx60 with the help of shadow priests, except razovius they didn't have anything specific against a paladin, and they were all undead.

Current naxx for level 80 is quite the same, just instead of Razovius, there are some different issues (mainly 4h and gothik)

Haven't done it yet, but here's the two tips I've seen:

For Gothik, make sure you have a DPS with a real taunt on you side, have them tag Gothik than rescue them. RD doesn't work.

For 4-h, taunt first on mob switch, then have tank 2 peel your one second.

Malygos only requires 1 tank AFAIK and the Obsidian dude only requires multiple tanks if you're doing it on hard mode. Pretty hard to tell the direction they're taking with it when the only evidence is two Onyxias and an instance that was designed years ago.

Yeah I mentioned this before we really need to see Ulduar to get a better idea of the new paradigm.

Pro tip it shows up in the Calendar in-game on live, so I figure it will be out fairly soon after launch.

QFT.

Naxx is not a great example of Wrath encounter design, especially on the tanking side.

Ulduar is apparently ready. NFI if spec-switching is done yet, probably requires a moderate amount of work & testing, plus a major DB schema update.

3.0 also gives them a nice testing phase with decent quantity of people. "Gamma testing" ?

Two weeks to level.
Two weeks to clear it.
Christmas / NYE.

They've got till mid-to-late Jan before the natives get restless.

I'm actually happy that Tier-8 isn't in on release - it makes "levelling time" a non-factor in the tier-8 races. There's only one real progression guild each faction, my server. We were both 4/6 Sunwell in 2.4. We got server first M'uru post patch, and had KJ at 3%. They snuck in an extra raid night and got first KJ, we got him the next night the server's hamster wasn't sick.

We're going to race Naxx/Malygos - but it's unlikely to be a good race. One guild or the other will probably field a 25 at lest a full week before the other one just due to luck of levelling speed, and get a dozen server firsts that week with no competition.

Tier-8 will be better: 3, 2, 1 KGO!
