    Well, it was 10-man and only two tanks, but it seemed like fully half of the impales ended up on the healer for the other tank. And we had no bacon healer, just me (disc), a holy priest, and a tree.

    We probably could have theoretically done it eventually, since our best try was down to 35% before someone finally died immediately after a whirlwind and things derailed from there, but it was just getting everything done for several phases in a row with no mistakes that eluded us. And people were starting to pull out the old "I can't pay attention, it's 5 AM here and I'm falling asleep on the keyboard" excuse.

    The tanks should save their tanking CDs for when he impales someone. The way it worked out is that I was able to use one of my CDs every time a healer got impaled.

    The fight is just as important for tanks to be on the ball as it is healers.

    Hate: I really want the tank mace from regular FoS, but it never wants to drop. At least the normal version drops triumphs, or I'd never really go there.

    Oh my: So I queue for FoS and then get in. Start doing my tank thing, get to Bronjahm, and trouble starts. People aren't killing the soul fragments, so he heals like 5 times. We finally kill him, and the mace doesn't drop. We move on, and kill the Floaty Head guy. This is where I'm surprised. I get the achievement for clearing out the heroic version. I thought I had queued for regular, but I guess not. He drops the plate boots, which I get, and then the caster sword.

    Happy: The sword dropped from ICC-10 on Wednesday and I did a shitton of damage during the 25 man this past weekend.

    Hate: For the legendary, we had the people who could use it roll off and if we get to the dragon and if it drops, they automatically get it. I lost the roll to the loot whore DK :x

    Happy: The tradeoff is that you cannot get trinkets or weapons with your "weapon DKP" (we're doing a really odd system this time around) if you win the roll for the legendary, so I can get stuff as it drops (potentially, my roll still sucks) :)

    Hate- People who use GearScore. I dinged 80 on my Warlock a few weeks ago and apparently my gear score was sitting at 3951 before EZMODE welfares came out (I now have a full four piece t9, one or two pieces of loot from the new regular five mans, and a few Ilevel200s), I get into a group for HToC, which I have ran plenty of times on the Warlock before.

    The tank, and healer both were saying "Nice gear score noob, you wont be able to keep up, we should kick you" etc etc.

    4k dps later on most of the fights, and topping recount on not only boss fights, but overall, I proceed to tell them "Nice tanking, oh and learn to keep aggro, and learn to remember that a lock has to Lifetap before each pull mister healer who never healed me during a major lifetap" and promptly leave.

    I swear people are pretty stupid when it comes to that addon.

Furthermore, our Masterlooter died on the enemy ship (along with me) so when the fight ended, we got teleported to the Saurfang area, and couldn't get back to open the chest.

Only the tank doesnt pull adds off of people if they aggro on them, nor does he stop to allow the healer to rez the people. At Moorabi the tank gets pissed off because the rogue has died and the healer wants to rez them, so the tank leaves. Which causes the healer to leave. We were in the instance MAYBE 10 minutes.

    thats not really a cocky tank, just an incompetent one

    i've had DPS tell me to stop pulling when they were out of mana. how about, fuck you, sit down to drink and catch up when you can.

    healer being out of mana, maybe, but that healer better have expended every single mana return ability as well as those of the party members too (innervates, hymn of hope, shadowfiends, divine plea, mana tide). thats what those abilities are there for.

    unless running with an undergeared tank, no healer should ever need to drink in a heroic if they use those abilities.

    it was so fucking annoying last night running with a druid healer. he was out of mana constantly and never used innervate. when I asked him to stop wasting my time and use innervate, he said "I'm saving it for when I need it!". Oh really. Well, you're out of mana, so I guess you need it.

    An example of this happened today to my brother's mage a few minutes ago and to me this morning

    The Old Kingdom run I did on my rogue was awful
    The elitest paladin telling people on and on about how he has been 80 for two weeks and been really lucky with drops we had little excuse for our lack of dps{the mage had better gear than he did but I thought they are a bot program}
    The healer had just picked up dual spec's and was learning to heal again {they said it had been 9 months since they last were heal spec'd}

    The druid who tanked Heroic Hos for my brother has voiced his opinion about how the dps was lacking repeatedly over the entire run
    The hunter was being a gung ho grandpa pulling everything even when they took a afk break to argue

    I actually prefer dps that's undergeared when I random heroics. Makes tanking the trash less stressful since I can hold everything with swipe and take off for the next pull earlier. Running with top-notch dps will down bosses faster, but I actually have to work at holding aggro on trash, which means I can't run around circus-pulling as much as I could with random pugs I know I can out-threat. As long as the healer is there I can kill everything myself if I have to, so it doesn't matter how terrible they are.

    On my 77 mage I have only had to sit and drink a few times. And that would be in groups where I didn't end up getting some form of replenish from the others.

    I am constantly having to viper aspect on my hunter in heroics lately, and its annoying as fuck. But on the other hand at least I can pull for the tank when they're being a douche and thinking we need to stop and rest after every pull, and LoS pull everything. Instead of that I pull for the tank.

    Happy: The /LFD tool.

    I'm pretty late with this but it is seriously good. When I logged in for the first time after 3.3 I queued for a random heroic and got Forge of Souls (as healer). We cleared it easily (one wipe because DPS didn't know to stop on Devourer of Souls), went to Pit and cleared that without problems. Went to Halls and wiped twice, because I couldn't keep them up. Also we were dumb, because we just stood in the middle and the Warrior tank couldn't pull the mobs and the dps wasn't countering enough and the altar in the middle gave me LoS issues etc. Then the priest respecced to healing (he had T9ish gear compared to my ilevel ~219) and I respecced to dps and we did it.

    The group stayed friendly all the time, nobody was complaining about the wipes. Best part: The chest at the end had the Mace, which is great for my Enhancement set. The Rogue won it and when I said something like "damn, but grats anyway" he opened trade and gave it to me. In a random cross-server pickup group. I never would have thought this could happen.


    Of course I now have met some idiots, but I don't think any group can change my opinion of /LFD after this first experience.

    I joined the LFG tool, and 1 min later, found myself in HoL. The first thing that is said, is the DK telling the group

    "This is my first time tanking an instance, so I might make mistakes"

    I tell him this is fine, and that it shouldn't be a problem. We complete the place fine, but there's a rogue in the group and he dies twice. Once due to taking agro off the tank on the 2nd boss, and once due to pulling a patrolling pat on the way to Loken.

    Is any of that is his fault? For outgearing the tank and not paying any fucking attention to his agro on a boss, and not hitting vanish the second the boss turned around? Or standing in a place and pulling a group that proceeded to kill him?

    Oh no, it's the healers fault, because apparently I should have forseen him tanking the boss and healed him through it, in addition to throwing him a heal, and thus get a fresh group head towards me due to the agro.

    Also, lets totally ignore the lock that is on auto-follow unless it comes to bosses. I called him out on it, asked "are you ok?" to which he said he was fine, at which point I then said "I'm only asking, because it seems you're not doing anything at all on the trash, and that you are auto following the mage".

    "oh yeah, I got lag"

    Yes, lag caused you to put on auto follow.

    I also did a UK, and I got shit from a tank because he died on trash. He did shut the fuck up when I asked if it was something new in the patch, that I was unable to see Frost presence in his buffs.

    ololol: got into a spat with a guildie who was tanking the ICC 5-mans, I was healing. She plays a hunter main and has a fairly geared warrior, so I assume that it'll be fine and dandy since I've healed all three without incident in pugs.

    not so.

    turns out hunter players make awful warrior tanks. I called her out on it when she tried to blame my healing, and she goes into a hissy fit. Best thing is, nobody takes her seriously because she's a mediocre hunter at best, and has already ragequit the guild once because she didn't get to sit in on Celestial Defender.

    Happy: Tankless heroics.

    Some guildies and I were doing some heroics for badges, and since as the tank I'm way overgeared for them our healer had basically nothing to do. After the first boss in H VH I decide to just go DPS and see how it worked, and we downed the rest of the instance with no issues. We then go on to do H HoS and blow through the place like a hurricane. I had to log for the night, but I'm sure we'll do more later on.
