Tank bitching to a healer? Well, that's one of the most surefire ways to see a bad tank. I've leveled two tanks now, and I've NEVER bitched to a healer. Even once when the "healer" on a latenight random was an elemental shaman obviously signed as healer for faster queue, who was obviously also completely smashed and we almost wiped twice on DTK because he didn't cast a single heal(my Improved Leader of the Pack was about 80% of healing done!). The dps were faster to complain than I was, really.Point is, as tank, there is NEVER really a reason to yell at healer. 95% of the time, if the heal didn't come, there was a good reason for it. Even if something goes wrong, a friendly question as to why is better than bitching; you're much more likely to get heals for the rest of the instance if the healer doesn't hate you...On topic: OH HELL YES. I so loathe AotD, and as bear tank, those knockbacks annoy me like no tomorrow. As far as I know, there are glyphs that kill the knockback for all three of those(correct me if I'm wrong). Death Grip(the 99% of the time it's used wrong) is pretty annoying, and of course the occasional Charge->lolstorm Arms warriors I come across."Any ability that allows you to hit a mob right after I've pulled it but before it reaches me." So. True. I have a special macro for those people that pull even before I cast my FFF:/sit/whistleI also tell the healer to not waste mana on such cases, though these days most healers don't heal those people anyway(like I do when I'm healing).
