Dec 3rd 2008 8:54AM DK need decent gear to tank, so while they are leveling normally run as DPS. Unless the tank outgears the instance, its more than likely the tank will need any tanking drops, and the DK would be an asshat to need it over the tank, likewise the tank needing dps gear over the dps. So it becomes a vicious circle, the more they level the less appropriate gear they will have to tank, making it very hard to get into it, unless done so by a decent guild.
The healer shortage is everywhere, but it seems to be a result of people speccing dps while leveling, with the ultimate aim to heal at 80. So 70 -79 its tough getting healers, but we should see an improvement as more people hit 80

You over aggro, mob comes barrelling at you.
Lazy tank stands there, and you fire the mobs straight back at him.
Feb 22nd 2008 9:25AM I like doing PUGs. I find that once myself ( the tank) and the healer know what we're doing, it goes ok. Last night I ended up doing a Kara PUG, and we cleared up to Curator without a wipe. We still had our fair share of morons, like the rogue who refused to DPS the Curators adds, and the lock who wouldnt fear Roar in the Wizard of Oz event. As long as the core of the group knows what its doing, the run should go fine. I look to PUG Heroic Slave Pens daily for badges in preparation for 2.4 rewards, and I'd be disappointed in myself if it wasnt done in 45mins.

I wouldnt really like this build, as previous have said, it doesn't really seem to make sense, but each o their own, everyone has their own playstyles and should form a build that suits it.
I respecc three times a week, a PvP healer for arena, a full feral build for solo and a full resto for raid nights. Its not that expensive to respecc, a few dailies and you're sorted.
Dec 11th 2007 7:50AM I thought I had done it all, called in sick to play WoW, taken holidays to play, stood up my girlfriend, thought about WoW during sex. I didn't think I was that addicted, until...
My aunt was really sick in hospital, and going to die.I had arranged to go to visit her on a saturday afternoon, but a morning heroic took longer than expected and I really wanted to finish it as a matter of principal. So I rang my folks, and told them I was sick, and would go visit her during the week. But I had signed up for raids on monday and tuesday, so that wasn't gonna happen. Then she died on the wednesday. I had weaseled out of seeing her for the last time, all so I could get one more heroic badge off Quagmirrian. It is pretty low.
Worst part was I spent most of the funeral thinking about what to spend my badges on! Never really liked that side of the family anyway!!
