maybe its my nature as a tank, or maybe its my nature as a blood tank[due to rep] but first and foremost I will never blame a healer for a wipe, with of course exceptions to some idiot healers that have tunnel vision and end up infront of marrowgar and then stand in his blue beam of lag..... yes im looking at you.... you idiot squishy priest...grrrrr but i digress. tanks have it easy compared to healers, all we have to do is say 1.2.3 taunt.... while you are playing wack a mole.... and i dont know about you, but i have never won enough tickets from that game to win anything higher then a chineese finger trap. even when im cheating using the mallet from the game right next to me as well. dps job to do damage and reduce their own damage by any means nessacary [including stopping their rotation or throttling back if threat is going to be an issue (you cant do any dps if the boss 1 shots you)]... a tanks job to recieve damage coming from the boss and keep themselves alive by any means nessacary. a healers job to make sure everyone survives to the best of their ability. if someone dies then a.) someone stood in crap/wrong location/had a debuff that was not or could not be maintained/didnt interupt b.) they forgot to use/out of their safety cooldowns/pots c.) did not understand the fight. d.) heals were incoming however timing was off[possibly due to lag], E.) bad luck with RNG or F.) tunnel visionnow some fights...toc faction champs... the machanics are different... but personally if i die its due to something that happened about 3 mins before that while a minor mistake, ended up being a giant raid mistake. [dps dies early=boss enrage], healer forgetting to cont. healing tanks after gormok but b4 worms and 1 tank goes down and needs a b res, casting infront of ony's whelp cave on phase 3, forgetting to bite someone... the list goes on... its never a failure of 1 person, its a failure of a team effort and thats the way i have always viewed it... and the effort begins before the fight starts when your composing your raid.
