Oct 27th 2011 7:27PM I'm very much an audio person over a visual person especially when it comes to warcraft. Got a lot of my procs to "yell" at me instead of "show" me what going on. Love DBM and GTFO for this. Does anyone know of others like that maybe even class specific ones. (I play a warrior priest and pally mostly)
Oct 10th 2011 8:16PM Semi-casual? Really? I wish I had that kind of free time to devote to anything. I would call that semi-hardcore if not hardcore.

Jul 17th 2009 12:41AM I can't really vouch for the other tanking classes but I for one have enjoyed tanking as a warrior in its current format. Why? Because you do have to think on your feet and adapt to the situation as the pull plays out sometimes. Lose and add? Taunt him back. Caster? Heroic Throw or Shield Bash him. It gives the fight more flavor and more challenge which I find enjoyable.
Also I think what people tend to forget is a warrior tank has to rely on the abilities of his teammates to be effective as well. Remember CC? Sheep, Ice traps and all those other CC abilities it seems like hardly anyone uses anymore.
Finally, mark the kill targets people! And DPS follow those targets! Skull and X at the very least. Us warriors can't AoE tank as well so help us help you. Going from one target to the next helps us keep aggro and will make things a lot easier on both you and your tank.

Nov 23rd 2008 11:45AM In case you haven't even been playing in the last few weeks you might not have noticed how much easier it is to aquire the gear needed to progress in this game.
I'm in solid tanking gear and able to handle content without having to have had repeatedly run the same instance over and over hoping for the drop I needed. WoW has changed, for the better.
Nov 23rd 2008 8:52AM I got into WoW about a year after my brother and some of his friends started playing. My first roll was a priest named Aremac. My brother loaned me some gold and I set out on what has now become a 2 year long adventure for me. I took me the longest time to build up enough courage to start group for dungeons and after a few rocky starts I became quite the solid healer.
Upon hitting 70 in the BC I continued to heal and finish up quests but at some point I grew tired of healing and the raiding scene was just filled with too much drama at the time. Additionally I was sick of the game becoming so gear oriented.
So I then rolled a warrior, with the sole intention of being a tank. During this period my internet service at home was MIA so I was playing at my local library on the weekend on my crappy laptop. I hit 70 2 weeks before Wrath and managed to complete the Loremaster of Outland Achievement. In doing so I came to really enjoy the lore and history of the game and understanding why I was "risking" my life going into these dangerous situations the game was throwing me into makes things so much more fun. I also have WoW to thank for the leadership skills I've picked up by leading 5-man dungeon groups as some of the management aspects actually help me in work!
I still remain guild-less on my server and intend to keep it this way. I really enjoy rp-ing as a kind of mercenary for hire sort of thing (I never ask for gold though, usually I'll only go if it serves my own purposes or I know someone personally).
Thanks for an awesome 4 years Blizz! Here's to many more!
Nov 23rd 2008 12:42AM I was just waiting for you guys to post something about how awesome the music is in Wrath. Lets face it the musin in the original game a BC was pretty much crap by comparison. I swear, I avoid Tanaris and Sithulus like the plague due to that horrible music in the background.
