An alternative to the sit, crit, mana method.

I'm sure more clever people figured this out an eon ago, but the other day I was in Shattered Halls lamenting having to use manna biscuits too often, and so I'd sit and get some crits, but the problem is, only one guy will get a crit on you and then you're back up dodging away.

So I figured if I have like 5 or 6 guys beating on me, while my consecrate is ticking and I'm running a little low on mana, I'll just start casting a holy light. If I'm not mistaken, you always get hit while casting a spell, so you can just stand there for a few seconds getting a bunch of melee hits on you and making your healers have to give you some mana back. :D It seemed to work well enough for me.

Anybody else have some handy tricks?

I wear my Crimson Felt Hat almost any time I'm not doing a heroic or raid.

You could also try taking off your pants.

I like the casting method, though with lots of mobs beating on you you might try Avenger's Shield because it actually does something useful and you should get hit a few times in it's 1 sec casting time.

I just tank with my 2h spinny hammer when I am overgeared for things these days, if I have enough things beating on me I'll switch to my shield. I made the thing as somewhat of a joke after seeing Invis's posts about it and now it turns out I probably use it 50% of the time in heroics. It does help that my healer usually sits about 5 feet away from me and I can tell her "going 2h" so she knows to keep up.
