Addon Spotlight: Adding on to the Blizzard Raid Frames {WoW}

Aug 4th 2011 12:00PM What he is referring to is an option that X-Perl had to show you how many players were currently targeting your target. Example: I am tanking a trash pack with another tank, and I see that 7 people are targeting my target. This would indicate that the OT and both healers are targeting something else (10 man), which is exactly what you want to see. Conversely, if I was the MT and saw only 3 people attacking my target that would be a time to remind the group to focus on the correct target.

Breakfast Topic: Getting a certain achievement down {WoW}

May 18th 2011 8:53AM First time I got it by accident was leveling a worgen. If you jump in the big whirlpool outside of Lor'danal in Darkshore (or however its spelled), you get Going Down when it drops you into a cave.

Incidentally, if you run up the cavern and kill the demon hunter ghost, he drops a quest item that grants another achievement as well, Ghosts in the Dark.

Forum post of the day: The tank surplus {WoW}

"I have 25% dodge, 20% parry, 22% block and 65% mitigation from armor. The adds dont hit me hard enough to generate enough rage to hold them while the dps knocks them out."

A similar issue happened for me in BC. Near the end I had a pretty nice tank set between t5 content and badge rewards. When I would go to tank heroics, or worse, normal 5-mans for guild, I had a -serious- lack of threat.

I solved it by using some PvP gear, as resilience would still keep me uncrittable. However, in Wrath I have had great success in going with a high block value set. Granted I have had a lucky drop from hGundrak (think thats were the BV neck is from), but with both BC trinkets I am hitting 1200 BV before any self buffs, AND am still uncrittable . (My guild has only recent begun on 10 man Naxx, I know that this number is average for a warrior with full raid gear.) You may also consider simply finding some tank gear with less avoidance and more +stam if you are concerned that you may need to snag a hard hitter from the other tank.

Hope this helps, it was very frustrating for me to figure out back in BC.
