Army of the Dead would be fine if the stupid ghouls won't taunt.I like the message of this post though. Too many DPS'ers aren't accustomed to using their snares and knockbacks properly. As someone who primarily plays a mage and an ele shaman, I've developed the skill to use Thunderstorm and frost nova... but it takes a while. A frost nova is great after running up the tunnel and reaching the end in the Pit of Saron... root all those mobs right there for the tank to aggro. Thunderstorm is perfect for knocking a mob back into a tank (besides off the LM ledge in AB >D). But it's hard for mages used to kiting to run towards a tank, and then frost nova that loose mob to the tank... but that is what we are supposed to do. Really hard to teach people that, because we are used to kiting and running/blinking away, it's counter-intuitive at first to run toward a big furball of melee enemies.It's a rare skill, but one of the few fun things us dps'ers can do besides just blow the crap out of some computer generated enemy's hit points. Which is why I like this post... hopefully a few people out there will realize you can do this and will learn a bit from it.
