aggro problems

Postby Tazok » Thu Feb 12, 2009 10:55 pm

Well i ran Azjol-Nerub: Azjol-Nerub for the first time today. Heres my armory http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... n=Rebkoril
Since there was a lack of tanking gear from the quests i had done so far and the colbalt items were upgrades i made what i could. I could not for some reason hold aggro on any of the mobs. We wiped 3 times on the second pull before i gave up. I have been prot spec since i was lvl 40 so its not like i am new to tanking. Now that i look back it might have been a lvl issue then a gear/spec. Could someone help me find the cause of the problem whether it be gear or whatever.



Thanks in advance for any help.

In the first few groups in AN there are a cople of skirmishers and those fixate on a random group member and they are immune to taunt. Basicly all you can do is kill them first and try to stun them when they go on a rampage. ;)

Skirmishers ^^

They have to be marked and killed first. Stun them and burn them down. The casters in the beginning can also hurt a bit, if you are afraid of wiping don't be scared to ask for a CC on one of those.

What is this CC you speak of?

But seriously, it's not because 90% of tank nerds here don't need CC, that it's a shame to ask for it. It takes more skill/class to know your weakness and ask for help, than being full of yourself and running in just to wipe without a chance.

Also, be aware that some mobs really don't care about threat. These skirmishers amongst others. I'd put up a list, but i don't really have access to all of the internet.
