Postby Rózsabimbó » Fri Nov 14, 2008 4:31 am

Hey guys, im new to this forum :D

I want to get your advice. I wanna know if i can tank the 5-man instances in retri specc while leveling?(Of course if i upgrade my tanking gear, everytime i can while leveling :D.) I have proper tanking gear (Ive cleared BT till Illidan :S).
So what do u think?

DPSed on my shaman for a couple of ret-tanks. Both did great, except for a couple pulls where Shoju forgot to check if RF had fallen off. :D

hey mav! Good to see you here!

<- now sheepish that people know I forgot to put on RF multiple times :)

Yeah, I have tanked UK, NX, and AN as ret, and it has been VERY VERY EASY. It might be a function of gear as well. If you don't have very "good" tanking gear, you *might* (I say might because I'm not sure) have more difficulty. My tank gear:

wotlk neck
wotlk q reward shoulders
slikk's cloak
75 badge chest (guardian)
t5 crafted belt
100 badge legs (sunguard)
wotlk boots
blue tbc ring
wotlk (AN) ring
Adamantine Figurine
stam trinket
kings defender
amani empire shield

The shoulders that you get as a quest reward from the Nexus are HUGE. A fellow paladin in the guild was commenting that they are VERY similar to his shoulders from Supremus.

As far as how to do it?

1.) make sure RF is on
2.) mark em.
3.) kill em.

My rotation has been

Mutli mobs: judge -> cons -> storm -> strike

Bosses: judge -> strike -> cons -> storm

I tank with normal tank seal, and judge wisdom. I should probably use light for the healing, But I've been running with a LOT of mana users, and the healing isn't normally a problem.
