attuneman 1 tank by accident

Postby aasgnt » Wed Nov 28, 2007 7:50 am

was running with a prot warrior and was going to separate attuneman and midnight as normal. when attuneman spawned he landed right in my aoe and the warrior couldn't pull off. interesting experience, and i am sure stressed the healers a bit.

was this just an accidental thing that i survived, or is one tank only needed for attuneman?

You can one tank Attumen.

Having enough gear and BoSacrifice you can even 1tank Moroes and bomb his adds so yes, of course it is possible - if you have the gear to.

I'm paired tonight in Kara with a prot warrior who hates tankadins. I'm going to tell him to put his DPS gear on for Attumen :)

Attumen is relatively easy to 1-tank. It's fun to tank Midnight and purposely drop consecrate, just to see how long it takes the OT to pull Attumen off you, if they even can.

Its what happened to me, I was hoping to tank both but raid thought it would be too hard, he spawned in cons and druid couldnt pull him off so told him to go cat and dps.

I now 1 tank them every week as the guild loves the ease of it. Healers love it becuase they can focus on 1 target.

BoSac tanking moroes also makes life abit easier and the fight quicker due to more DPS :)

I still dont bother tanking Maiden tho, find it nicer to stick healing gear on and BoSac out of repentance to keep the druid up.

He whined, but then again this warr is a whiny twat anyway, with really crap threat generation. Pretty much anywhere last night I was doing double the TPS he was doing. :)

First time I did it I had 490 def/uncrush, and about 11,800 unbuffed health. Managed just fine.

It's pretty spikey for new/inexperienced healers when it comes to solo-tanking Attument at a moderate gear level due to the vulnerability of crushes and quick hits when you're knocked down.

I kept telling my guild that I could tank them both, the wouldn't believe me, so I popped avenging wrath when attumen came out, and made sure to pull him with consecration and exorcism if necessary.

Afterwards, they realized its easier that way, and the healers liked having to watch only one tank, and not two.

Healing one tank who is able to suvive the possible spike dmg (important!) is always easier than healing two tanks with moderate dmg.

i did this in my current gear(i hope it updated) consisting of pre kara stuff. I'm sure that being uncrushable pulled me through the fight as our warrior was forgot to disarm attunman :lol:
