Reader UI of the Week: Jake's Larger UI {WoW}

Feb 16th 2010 11:29AM If you're using GSB you must be against using GearScore, right? Why would you want to go on a raid if the leader is requiring GS? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of using GearScoreBreaker?

Breakfast Topic: What class mechanics have you had to learn to deal with? {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2009 9:45AM As a tank my two biggest gripes are: 1. people who don't kill the skull marked target first, and 2. impatient DPS who think they can pull whenever I'm not ready.

Do people even bother to follow kill orders anymore?

I know there are some dungeons where marking targets is useless, but in some of them, especially the new ICC dungeons, I'll always put a skull and an X on the first and second targets I want dead (usually casters, healers, or otherwise annoying mobs). I explain this to the group at the beginning of the instance, but half the time I still see mobs peeling off me to run at a DPS. Even if I don't explain it, are people really so thick as to ignore the big skull over a mob's head?

Even if you've never run a dungeon with marked targets before, don't you think you could ask what that means? I guess for some people it is too much to ask for...

And yeah, I second every tank here who's mentioned impatient DPS pulling a pack of mobs or a boss before I do. I don't care if your DPS is super awesome, or if you're rocking full T10, that boss or pack of 4 mobs is still going to destroy you if you try tanking them by yourself. I'll take my time in picking up aggro off people like this, and if they die I don't feel sorry (Except that the healer has to waste mana/reagent on rezzing them. I love my healers.).
