While single tanking and interrupting Shadow Strike? The error I've noticed before is that it would not reset the timer appropriately, and you'd get randomly cast SS's after a while.

I've never experienced this with DBM.

This happened to us so many times i got Rid of DBM. I seriously cant remember how many attempts we wiped on when trying to kill him because I would hit my Holy Wrath when the timer was at 0.5 in Phase 3, and 4 seconds later someone was dead and the adds burrowed. We swapped to DxE and the boss was dead a few attempts later. DBM had an issue with the transition from P2 to P3 and the timer was off. Now while I am sure that they fixed it by now, when we were trying to kill Anub, it was the bane of my existence. Its not enough that I am single tanking four things, pulling two of them myself with out MDs, and having to interrupt on a constant basis, but now the information i use was incorrect. It was frustrating to say the least.

Don't worry, my hatred for having to do the MDing is just as strong. Trying to MD 2 targets during a 4s buff with enough threat to outthreat healbombing pallies and shamans in P3 without inadvertently pulling aggro on said mobs and dying is rather fraying to say the least.

Unfortnately the 272 tribute cloak is better than any 277 cloak in ICC so I'm personally motivated, and having seen 0 heroic reigns, the casters are still fairly motivated to keep going too.

I forgot to post this earlier but I wanted to thank everyone who helped me with my questions earlier in this thread. We just got our AA 25 Heroic kill last week. 2nd Horde guild on server to do it. Thanks for the help guys :D However I did make one minor change before we achieved our kill. I swapped out from T8 helm to T9 245 for extra block value.

If you are planning to solo tank the 4 adds then you'll go pop like a pinata. If you are only tanking 2 then it should be fine.

I would say that the minimum total dodge+block+parry+miss should be somewhere in the 95% range at the least. Also it is important to know that you should be striving to, after achieving passively unhittable, boost your block value as much as possible. I walk in there with about 4100 block value buffed, and still take significant chunks of damage.

This is the set I wear: Unhittable Set

My set has not deviated much from back then, a few upgrades to remove the T8 helm, The Signet of the traitor king and the weapon, but that is the set I used to kill Anub for the first time solo tanking the adds, and it is basically the set I still wear to tank the adds last week.

Dont forget to add in a mobs basic miss chance of 5%, and also the miss % you gain from the added defence.
Puts him at 103.55%.

That is the setup available to myself. No BR bracers unfortunately. Can swap out the Ony Trinket for the BC badge autoblocker if required.
