Dec 18th 2008 11:48AM Hello, my name is Aluminum, and I am a Druid Tank.

Druid forms are turning into self-help groups.


I have tanked up to 80.
I am now tanking in Heroics.

So far the only problem I have come across is being with under geared DPS.

I have come across encounters that have been dificult but once the group and I adapt, we get through usually without a wipe.

Its all about how you play.

the few remaining Druid tanks should quit the QQ and larn their toon. or they will become as lame as the Death Knoobs.

heres a few examples of creative pulls that has helped my groups.

1- try to pull a mob by Entangle roots. throw this on a melee, it will aggro the others, and they will come running. pick em up with a swipe or two,and your set.

2-Dont forget Shammys have Hex

3-Dont forget Hunters have that freeze trap projectile now to grab any pesky casters.

4-If you are AoEing a mob, and one breaks lose dont worry, turn around, throw a growl on him (they made it 30yard range for a reason) and go back to business, the stray baddy will make his way back into your swipe range.
(you can also use
5-If all hell breaks lose, make good use of your trinkets CDs etc.
I as an Alchemist have Lifebloom to add to my arsenal.
So when it hits the fan, I can Lifebloom, Barkskin, Frenzied regeneration&Survival Instinct.

as it stands my trinkets are Badge of Tenacity (still!) and the alchemist tanking stone.
Popping your CDs in the correct order, at the correct moment will change a wipe into easysauce.

Crap.. I would contunie with ideas, but Im at work... and they are hounding me.

Sorry.. Ill try to update. But I have tons of strats that have saved my life.

GL Druids dont give up.
