The Light and How to Swing It: Tanking the Northrend Beasts {WoW}

Sep 16th 2009 5:12PM I am a protadin MT for my guild. Gormack has a bit of damage going around the raid (the random fires, the snobolds hitting someone). I find it useful to NOT cancel the Divine Shield, and to just use my Divine Shield and Divine Sacrifice Macro. This way you help to mitigate SOME of the raid damage.

To preface my next statement, fully buffed I'm over 50k HP, and around 60% avoidance, with some GREAT healers. But in both ToC 10 and ToC 25 I let the stack get up to around 4-5 before I bubble. It get's tense right there at the end, but it lets my OTs help with DPS for a while (the bear goes kitty, the DK just doesn't use FP). For ToC 10 HM I do this to 3 stacks. And in ToC 25 I just do it every 2 and leave the bubble to the end. So that the worms are easier.

Ready Check: Thorim {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2009 7:39PM We spent a long time on Thorim 25. We use 2 tanks in the arena, one stand beneath Thorim and the other in the center of the room. For the one under Thorim, there is a 4 tile square right next to the center circle. If he stands in the center there, he will get most of the aggro.

The tank outside the center is responsible for holding the champions, while the tank in the center pulls as much as he can to himself. This keeps the fight relatively controlled. We use a SP to MC one of the warbringers, but we've also done it without the shadow priest when they're unavailable.

As before, inside the arena is mostly melee. We focus evokers, then non-MC'd warbringers, and then finally AOE everything else. The damage from the champion tank and the AOE damage seems to keep the champions from piling up.

Zoltan scores over 10,000 achievement points {WoW}

Jul 20th 2009 6:08PM He has feats of strength, browse his armory page. He's got some old school feats in 10/2008, so he's probably been around a while.

May 12th 2009 4:01PM I take it you haven't been around long. WoW is the top MMO (if you count the number of accounts), and after, what, 7 years of this, there is nothing to be scared at.

Phat Loot Phriday: Ironsoul {WoW}

May 1st 2009 8:30PM You can see that it has 2 "axe" blades on it. It is indeed a flanged mace, even if it's missing some of that critical end weight that you would expect from a typical flanged mace.

Martin Fury: What would you have done? {WoW}

May 1st 2009 2:44PM @Thebum

Exactly. I gain the most amount of enjoyment in this game playing with friends and beating bosses that have been giving us trouble. When content gets on farm, it starts to get boring. I cannot imagine anything more boring than pressing a button and winning.

Same reason I don't cheat in single player games, I enjoy the challenge and don't want the easy way out.

Definitely would have contacted a GM immediately. It would have been linked to the guild as a WTF moment, but definitely not used and definitely returned.
