After considering all that was said. I had another issue with the GM last night.

Anyways, that promtly lead to a /gquit. I guess it was coming anyway.

I'm considering trying to build up my old guild to Kara. But its so time consuming. I tried it once there to no avail. We just couldnt pull out the numbers, and our server now down to 'low' population, I dont know what to do.

I could give it a try, it'd set my Kara ambitions back a month and a half or so, but I don't know.


If I did go back to my old guild, we'd start with 1 Rogue, Me tanking, a Warrior (who I'd ask to be my offtank, good friend), a shadow priest. In a month we'd have a Warlock, Mage, Hunter to add. Could try pulling a Holy Paladin in too. So absence of a couple healers mainly.

Personal opinions. Would you rather start up a Kara guild from fresh, or would you rather join one already in progress?

Last night we ran this for my final kara key frag and i foudn the hardway that even running back with a body pull getting hit and retribution aura pops them back they gain resist.

I pull them Goblin Engineering style, with a judicious dose of explosives. :)

It got annoying after a while when people kept asking me to heal this or heal that. Its like I dished out hundreds of gold and a lot of time into the gear I have now (pre-raid stuff, but that stuff isn't easy to get!), don't ask me to throw it all away just because you want some heals.

I never gave in though, and after a while its become quite obvious that I know what i'm doing. Nearly every single pug (i live for pugs) i've joined instantly falls in love with me, and I keep getting guild offers constantly.

You just have to keep at it. Your best bet is to pug. I know people hate pugging, but if it wasn't for pugs I wouldn't have ANY of the stuff I have right now. Prove yourself through pugs and eventually you'll be known through word of mouth at how good of a tank you are.

But ill try that tonight as i wanna finish doing some arc runs. Btw pre heroic are there any tankadin gloves avail? i am chasing down a quest to replace my spell damage ones with. Its in nether storm green gaunts with some spell damage some stam and 17 def raiting. though i would prefer +str/stam/agi with def rather than spell damage in all truth as i havent had a problem keeping the aggro on myself so far.


I used Felsteel gloves till i got my T4.



Gauntlets of the Chosen if you're Scryers. If not, Felsteel is the way to go. Or maybe even Gauntlets of the Bold but Felsteel is usually 10x easier to get.

I always find raiding more enjoyable when I get the sense of accomplishment of being a part of building something up.

just reminded myself of the MSPaint strategy diagrams I made when my old guild was working on Ony in 05.
possibly the best MSPaint strats ever. heh
good times.

I know one guild who's GM actually took the whole raid group to hyjal and brought them in that empty instance with exactly the same layout as ony's lair and made them practice positioning.

Join one in progress. Tanking as Prot is already challenging, time consuming, and stressful enough. Especially with all the bias against them. Having the desire to MT is totally different from having the desire to run a guild. Honestly, I can't imagine doing both. They are both very time consuming and have quite different objectives. Running a guild sucks up a lot of time and adds a lot of stress and pressure. I would recommend not trying to start/run a guild as a means to any end, as leading the guild will inevitably take more of your time, energy, and focus away from your true goal, playing your toon (as a tank).

Okays, so just to update,

Went on a run my old guild, (of whom I rejoined), combined with another guild.

I was MT, we downed Attumen, with me tanking both Midnight and Attumen ^_^

Dropped the bracers, but the offtank (warrior with a little bit of tank envy ^_^) Managed to roll higher (master looter, class applicable roll). Was still fine, as my Rogue IRL friend got some leather gloves. So we're all happy. :)

Maiden on sunday. Or is it worth going for Moroes first?
