People who call new tanks "retards" in LFR raid chat instead of calmly explaining to them what they are doing wrong. It hasn't even been directed at me (I am mostly DPSing to get a feel for the bosses first) but that sort of behaviour really pisses me off. Gross.

My WoW connection is getting really unreliable. I usually DC once or twice a raid night, usually at a critical point (Durumu start of maze; Lei Shen p3 etc), which is not what you want in a tank. Plus random DCs when soloing, sometimes getting unplayable like just now (DC every 1 min). I don't know what to do - I disable recount, go to low settings and that can help on Lei Shen etc. But other times, I haven't a clue - every disabling all addons, I still DC.

I have a decent computer and a wide broadband connection, so it's unlikely to be hardware.

"tanks" in leveling dungeons that cant hold aggro on a single mob, constantly lost, skip bosses, and then ask why you are so mad when you ask them to do quests...
its like im not mad...you are just making my head hurt from all the fucking head-desking i am doing.

I wish people would be a little bit more humble. There's nothing wrong with warning your group that you might have trouble keeping aggro, or that you've never been in the dungeon before and might need some help with the way and/or tactics! Most people will be nice about it. If people then call you a noob or something, then at least you know you did your best and that they're probably just incurable dicks.

For the record, though, I'm having horrible problems with aggro on my mage on AoE packs - 4 stacked Arcane Explo with extra range is BIG.

I never had problem on any of my 4 tanks to hold aggro even from 500+ geared dps, despite most are stuck at 460ish ilvl.

All you need is to get in first and be able to actually press 2 buttons (swipe/trash for bear, sck/keg smash for monk, hotr/cons for pala, tc/shockwave for war, bloodboil/d&d for dk), and to go first.

If the dps is very high, chances are the pack is already dead before the strong aoe gets aggro.

If a tank manages to lose threat nowadays he's just bad in my opinion. :)

warriors at low level - ok ill give you that one
same with bears

but a paladin?
really?
esp after you get HotR, there is no excuse to not be able to keep aggro

a lot of those 2 buttons that worldie said arent snap threat, but as long as you pulled you should be able to keep aggro
and like i said in my first post..its not ebing able to even hold a SINGLE MOB that i had issues with..if you have issues holding a back before you class gets its main aoe threat ability, ok..dps should help focus on your target..but a single mob that shouldnt be an issue

i do agree that if you are new to tanking and/or the instance, SAY SO! i will be more than happy to help! but if you just blindly charge in, skipping most of the mobs we need to pull to even unlock bosses to finish, or lose a pack, say fuck it and pull another one while your dps and healer are all tanking mobs...yeah that is what i was posting about..THOSE "tanks"

Pala has an even easier time than other tanks as AS hits damn hard and packs with more than 3 mobs are very rare.

Had a pally tank complain that the better geared, reforged and gemmed Brewmaster tank should OT since he had less health. Once I whispered that the BM was geared better I got the typical "I've been doing this long enough and there are many ways to do it" reply. Sure, but none of the ways really involve not capping hit and expertise and gemming for parry. He then told me my DPS sucked on Durumu, I actually run around to kill adds and intercept Life Drain all while rocking a T14 2her, and put me on ignore.

Tanked MSV normal on my 458 monk with a 540 spriest and 540 mage, i had aggro issues. Only just managed to sustain threat, even on dogs where i solo tanked all 3. Vengance isn't a good as i thought.

True enough. What i really meant was "i wasn't expecting to have any aggro problems but i did".

If you're a freshly dinged tank in heroics and happen to come across a very well geared dps you could be in for a rough ride.

I never pay attention to my own health when I'm monk healing. So I die to dumb stuff, because I don't heal myself.

And there are still idiots in LFG who stand in stuff that kills you (and get annoyed when they die to said stuff).

I am also apparently a decent plate tank, as I actually took my blood DK into a heroic to tank (since that's all she has), and lost threat to our dps warrior a couple of times because he decided to be dumb, so I decided to let him deal with it. No one else could do it (also, the dps warrior plays a blood DK, so he was assessing me). It's only a frustration because I actually wanted to be a decent plate dps. Oh well!

Very minor stuff this AM.

Getting 5 surplus sigils when I still need 5 more of the other sort. It has really put me off the game.

Not getting a drop, I can live with but getting useless quest items feels really unbelievably lousy.

Failed on last attempt before patch to kill Ra-den (7%).

I'm completely infuriated that Fatal Strike works the way it does. I died to so many strikes that were 0.2 sec or less off. In case you all didn't know he casts it on you about 0.2 sec before the damage hits you. That's when the game decides of you're dead or not. Having SotR up on the damage itself has no effect on the insta-kill mechanic. So I'd have SotR up on the damage...then die, wow so fun. Or he delays at over 100 energy for over 3 sec to cast other things......herp dead.
