Dec 30th 2008 9:38AM You know what's worse? There are classes (several of them) who can use their mana for healing spells! This means you can get their health down to nearly zero, and then they cast a "heal" or two on themselves, and they're at full health again. There's even a class (called a "Paladin") which can "bubble" so it has an invulnerability spell which lasts essentially long enough to heal itself back to full health, and you have to start the whole fight all over again.
Dec 7th 2008 8:33PM I'm leveling with 2 sets of gear, unholy tanking spec, and a quick-change script from Outfitter:
- blood presence - a crit, attack power and strength set - mostly green quest rewards
- frost presence - a stam, strength and defense set - based on the BS crafteed "cobalt" sets which are very good and cheap
I can solo 3-4 mobs of my level and end the fight with 75% health in frost presence (more health if I remember to death strike at the end), or take down a single mob of my level in blood presence in a little over the time it takes for the diseases to run out.

Why are these stories always about such disagreeable players? This happened to me a couple of days ago, and is much more typical:
[ in fight ]
Me (on lock): bugger - got aggro, let me die
[ i die, but get every dot imaginable on the guy before I go down - sac the voidy, run next to the tank and hit hellfire - healer gets a nicely timed bubble off which helps me last a few secs more - tank goes nuts with thunderclap to grab them back ]
Healer: sorry for letting you die
Me: S'ok, DPS is expendable
Dying gracefully is an important talent for DPS.

Nov 6th 2008 7:46PM Maybe you'd take a dual specced druid who could tank, kitty DPS with a gear change and heal on the second spec, performing 3 roles unlike the pally or warrior effectively limited to 2.
Imagine the party wipes. Problem: not enough heals. Your druid comes back in healy-mode whereas your warrior is limited to running around to other players with a stack of bandages.
