Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.
Levie:(in /g) It's weird, I have a collar and I dont know where I got it from, Worgen are kinky!
Levie:Drunk Lev goes and does what he pleases just to annoy sober Lev.
Sagara:You see, you need to *spread* the bun before you insert the hot dog.

Is doing the dance considered the sign of a competent tank? I'd consider the sign of someone watching their monitor.

True, but I guess I've gotten complacent and always want to pull insane tricks like last week's Blade Lord.

A couple bumps on Garalon - I get to take Pheromones from a HPally and hand it over to the PuG Tank. Sadly the Pally seemed to considers 50+ yards appropriate kiting range, which made Furious swipes... Interesting. Hit enrage at 19% so went over to MSG for a 4/6.

I could have done better, but I was a bit stressed out and made a few dumb mistakes on Stone Guard. Just waiting to show my stuff on WotE Sunday...


I envy you, we've pulled Garalon a total of two times... we've been having personal issues, and real life getting in between as well... I have no idea whatsoever how to do Garalon...

Argue heatedly with your co-tank about who the heck is in-range of swipe, who isn't, and why the heck we keep having bad pheromone swaps. That's what Invis and I do anyway. :D

I think I'm still under 10 pulls total. I've been eating through videos to get a good idea. I think the biggest problem is discovering the *sweet spot* where the cleave ends.

As the "new guy", I won't step on toes and push too much to have the kiters come closer, I'll just zip back along the last 'mones to get in cleave range. Then, the swap with the other tank is easier, and the swap back to healers shouldn't be a problem.

Also, 2T and 3H is fine to learn, but we're going to need and cut down on healers/tank soon enough.

Tanks need to get pheromones? °_°

10 man heroic yes. Normal no. On normal it just makes things needlessly complicated with kiters getting (or not getting) swiped.

FWIW we 0 tank 3 healed normal mode having a ret pally (me) and a holy paly soak fury swipes. We had the other two healers and two good movement ranged dps (hunter and lock) kiting pheromones.

Success/Frustration: H Garalon and Wind Lord down in the last two raid nights but they should have been dead before Christmas, boy was that a rough three weeks...

The strat (10N) we've been trying has the tanks share it with either 2 hunters or, on our best attempts, 1 hunter and a holy pally (think we 3 healed). I think if weren't for the fact that we are seeing DPS issues more than healing/kiting issues we'd change (if we had rogues, I know we would). I'm wondering if at least one us tanks (2 pallies) will have to go ret and use CDs on swipes to get us past the hump. I think our last couple wipes were like 15% death to enrage with no B-rezzes, everyone up and the healers comfy.

But I can totally see how having soakers not take pheromones could make life a bit easier.

As long as you spec and maintain SS and use a Glyphed TV for the damage reduction prior to each swipe its a breeze with divine protection/shield for emergencies. Despite our lack of a defensive "stance" as ret the damage taken really isnt that bad.

Finally some progress in raiding. After being stuck on the troll guy in MSV for a few weeks he and Spirit Kings went down.

Bought myself a blu-ray player, so now I no longer need to use my 12-year-old PS2 to play DVDs. \o/
Bonus: It has built in wifi so I can now watch online TV stuff on my actual TV.
