Taunting Nalorakk

Postby Lookit » Thu Jun 05, 2008 2:09 pm

Anyone else having Righteous Defense fail on Nalorakk?

Here's my situation: I tank troll form, feral druid tanks bear form. After the first bear form, Nalorakk turns back into troll form and I taunt. He does not change targets to me, but my cooldown is still blown. I wait 15 seconds, try again, and the same thing happens.

I thought that perhaps I was using it too soon after the transition, so I tried waiting 3 seconds and then taunting, but had the same result.

I've tanked 7 successful bear runs in the past 7 resets, but the taunt situation on Nalorakk is extremely annoying. The poor druid ends up having to tank the entire fight (except the first troll phase obviously) and I get to feel pretty useless. Fortunately he is a badass tank and we have beast healers, so it's never been a wipe.

I realize I could BoP him, but my understanding is that it woudl send him to the person with the highest threat, which definitely wouldn't be me. For example, if I had 100k threat, a warlock might have 110k threat and not need to worry about pulling aggro because he'd need 130k threat to "pull aggro". But he still has more actual threat than I do, so if I BoP'd the druid, Nalorakk would head for the hypothetical warlock first. Also, I would prefer to save my BoP for if the druid had a mangle going into a bear transition.

Additional information: prior to 2.4, I used the taunt macro that all pallies used. After having trouble with Nalorakk, I though that perhaps the changes to RD were making my macro cause the problem. So I started using RD directly out of the spell book, with no macros. It works great for all other content, but not Nalorakk. At some point, I will start using the new macro that let's you taunt off NPC's easily.

Has anyone else had issues with RD recently? And have any workarounds been found?

No problem at all, every taunt on him worked both resets this week.

Do you use a macro with RD? If so, would you mind posting it so I can see which one it is?

And I tanked him several times with no problems at all, but the last 3 clears literally not one taunt has worked on him.
