My most frustrating moment was definitely after our guild downed Azgalor in the Hyjal raid in BC. I was the pally tank. I was the new official pally tank of the guild because I had proven through raw ability that I was better at pally tanking than their previous one. I was one of the most crucial people in our success in that raid; they had literally been beating their heads against the wall until I started tanking for them. We used loot council for drops, and I was first in line for the tier 6 gloves. I was the doom-guard tank. Everything was going perfectly. The boss went down. The pally-etc. tier 6 token dropped. My guild leader announced over vent that I was getting it... and then he couldn't loot it to me. I had not touched the boss during the fight. I had ONLY touched the doom-guards. So I wasn't counted as being on the loot table. I was really mad, but there was nothing anyone could do. I did eventually get them, but it would have been much cooler if it had been on the first downing.

Forgive me for this reply but I can't help myself. You say you were a better pally tank than the previous one. Does your face have some unique shape that rolling across the keyboard just made work better? I have tanked with about every thing in the game and Pally tanking is zzzzzzzz oh crap i fell asleep thinking about it. Again I do apologize for this but I couldn't help it.. Im a smart@#$ its just my nature.

No, that's fine, I understand your astonishment. :P I don't know how to put this nicely... The other tank was truly terrible. So when I saw I had 'raw ability' I mean just that, I had it, he didn't; all he had going for him was senority, and a rather tight-knit, friends-and-family based raiding guild. I, to this day, do NOT know why this guy couldn't get the hang of pally tanking, which, as you said, can be a bit of a face-roll. :P My gleader at the time, who had a warlock main, even tried it himself to see what the problem was, and he picked it up just fine. *shrug* Some people are incompetent, I guess.
