Initial mod you need is called:

The Addon for tanking is called: Threat Plates

http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info14984.html

I also made a video explaining how they work. Basically whenever your tanking a mob and you have full aggro on it, you have a normal v bar with green glow. If lets say you're tanking 6 mobs and any one of them you do not have aggro on, their nameplate will turn big and red giving you the notice to taunt etc..

Video of me demonstrating how they work.

And yeah usually we get out of the AOE adds in phase 1 and 2 with 10-12 seconds left before next batch

Please help me!
I have all items that I need to tank all 4 adds, but :(
I cant take all of them on last phase. One or two always kills healer paladin on MT.
I've tryed rogues and hunter to misdirect adds to me, but that bastard overagroed them without RD on ^(
1,5 months of trying. Anubs model too large to target adds properly.

Tell me how to get them on me. Please.

How i do it:
Tank the boss very far down the room. with a Deathgripped frostpatch.
Whenever adds are coming out, you run away from anub, pick the close right add up with avenger+HoR taunt. wait for the others to come closer, once they are about to pass you, you RD taunt the 3 of them not allready running for you, since they are targeting the same healer.
The close left add should almost be slightly behind you, but turning slightly and your good.
About 1-2 sec after the RD taunt is casted, the adds should be right ontop of you.
While they are running there use holy shield and consecration on the floor.
At the time they are all 4 at you use Holy Wrath to stunn them all, and give you threat ofc.
Then turn slightly, hammer the add furthest to the left so it jumps on all 4 (with the glyph)
and strafe back in under anub. The adds should get out of their stunn right about the same time as your standing in a good position inunder the boss. Where you keep your holy shield up, keep consecrating, and hammer them all again.
After that there should be no way anyone can overaggro you.

Lot of text, hard to read/understand.

Bad quality and all, should be able to see whats going on.

Thank you very much!
There is one BIG problem. I must save Holy Wrath to kick the cast :( cuz my idiots paladins cant do that in time. But I need that start threat. Ok, ty again, I'll try it.

We run with a retri and warlock who does the "kicking"
As long as they interrupt it at the cast, instead of the preemtive stunning, its no problem with giving them a stunn DR "counter".
And with the holy wrath glyph, its usually possible to do it yourself, but not every time, so you will need help.
I wouldnt rely on a single kicker in any case. Esp not from a tank, you cant be running with that much hitrating, misses WILL happen, and it wont be reliable.
A dps should atleast have hitcap, or close to it. Given the adds are lvl 82 they prolly should have it.

level 82= 6% spell hitcap = 158 rating for spell cap with NO buffs/talents/debuffs whatsoever.
A DPS who does not have at least 6% miss reduction through talents/gear does not belong in an Anub-H raid, PERIOD.
I do, however, think it behooves us to time a Holy Wrath against the SS. it costs us a little threat, but provides key redundancy against positioning/DPS facerolling/DPS faceflooring/ lag spikes, and all the other misc ways for even one SS to get off...because even if the SS doesn't kill someone, the inevitable Burrow is a great way to end an attempt early

Hi there,
I'm currently building my passive bloc set, and I have one remark and one two questions :

- I think you should mention the trinket from Onyxia's head, as it's the best second trinket (with Lavanthor's) for reaching 101.6%

- Do you think it would be too unreasonable to rely on Quel'Serrar's proc to reach 101.6 ? My other option is to regem and reenchant my main tanking weapon, which I'm a bit reluctant to. (but will do if that's what it takes)
I'd be 1.2% short without the proc.

- Shield enchant : 81 BV but 0.8% short, vs. block cap with the block rating enchant ?

Should be noted that Falric's Wrist Chopper drops from Heroic Halls of Reflection and has excellent unhittable stats.

For our guild, we will still be killing Anub HM every week for a while. Now we are a special circumstance because we got our first kill on the cusp, but there are some classes where the T258 Tier bonuses are far superior to marginal upgrades in ICC. Until a lot of our players have the ability to go right into 4 piece T264, they will be wearing at least 2 piece 258 for more benefit.

But I do agree, most people will skip over it, and maybe go back when the out gear the instance to get the kill for achievement points. I have a feeling it will be nerfed soon anyways, its now old content.

The next gate opens Jan 5th, I know we will still be killing anub every week because there isn't enough to do in ICC with only 4 bosses atm. :(

Faceroll naxx or watch House were my options, but i don't think it's a hard decision.

Depends a bit on your current Block value.
I run with about 8% from blockcap unbuffed, fully buffed i think thats just about 5%ish.
And i noticed a big differance that i was taking way less damage when beeing on more BV with 5% chance to be hit, instead of less BV with blockcap.
If the adds doesnt have 5% chance to hit you, you might aswell go for more BV. if your close to the 5% or missing even more, more towards the blockcap is prolly better.
Id safely say you can cut down to 5% chance to be hit if you can gain any BV on it.
