A have a couple. The best by far was being new to 80 and raiding on my prot pally. After being taught Naxx 10, my guild invited me to OT OS25 for the first time. All was going well until the MT died. With Sarth facing the raid I immediately taunted and repositioned him but without a tank on adds...everyone started dying fast. It came down to a druid healer and a undead rogue. When the healer was overwhelmed, the rogue vanished leaving me alone with Sarth with 63k hp, along with a bunch of whelps. Waited the last possible minute to bubble, then smacked Sarth as hard as I could before pushing LoH. Then surviving long enough to bring that bastard down. When the healer went down, everyone else was calling a wipe. Everyone was surprised and amazed that I was able to survive through that ordeal. With that, I was invited to the guild's Naxx 25 runs and pulled a couple miracle saves in there as well. It took a lot of effort to prove my worth as a raiding tank to my guild (I was with at the time) which I didn't appreciate about getting looked down at.Now I'm in a new guild progressing through Heroic ToC 25 as one of the regular tanks as well as backup MT when our GM can't make it to the raid. Looking back at that period of time since hitting 80 knowing it was a tough road to prove my place, it makes me smile.
