Feb 15th 2010 6:01PM I tried tanking this both as affliction and destro, but couldn't do it. I'd get killed before I had the chance to pick up any floating balls. I have 18K and 23K unbuffed hp in those two specs respectfully. Our demonology warlock has no problems with it though. When he's not around we have a hunter do it in pvp gear. 30k hp with brewfest trinkets :P And aggro is of course not a problem for hunters. Only thing missing is the demonic pact, but we're a 10man guild and always have a shaman there anyway.
Dec 16th 2009 7:52PM To say the gear check is forgiving is an understatement. I've been able to enter all the new icc 5mans with my tank alt ever since I reached enough gear to have about 27K hp. I've seen bear tanks with 50k hp get pretty low in Pit of Saron and Halls of Reflection at times, so I'm happy that they have never come up as the daily random hc for me. And yes, I know a lot of the damage can be avoided if everyone works together, but expecting that from a pug is a bit unrealistic.
