Apr 4th 2012 1:18PM I like the middle section. Summary: Arthas has horcruxes.
Apr 2nd 2012 5:51PM I have every intention of switching mains from a paladin to a monk, so much so that I've started a Brewmaster blog. I'm Stoneguard now, so name the new guy Stonepalm and the guild can still call me Stone. Also staying a tank (I adore tanking) so the raid team isn't really impacted.
I WANT TO TANK WITH A STAFF. SO BAD. And as I say often, druids pretend to staff-tank. I'm gonna be going Donatello all over Pandaria's wildlife and cultures.

Mar 28th 2012 2:25PM Anne, I've given you all of my love before, but this article earns it all again. If reincarnation is real, you get all the love from my next life.

Sometimes people faceroll because they outgear the content, or the content is too easy, or their spec is overpowered at the moment. The faceroll that I think makes bad tanks is the kind where people just hit buttons like a madman hoping things happen, lol. If you *don't* have one of those advantages that trivialize content, making your forehead a paperweight on your keyboard isn't going to work out so well. That's what I meant. Glad you enjoyed the article. :)
Mar 28th 2012 11:02AM McCurley, I applaud your bug/mantid jokes. For serious.
Readers, I think part of the severity of this tank shortage comes from a lot of available tanks being kind of crap. Plus, sometimes there's a rookie out there who's really trying but just doesn't quite know what to do. This week, I made a (hopefully humorous) primer for getting yourself into the mindset of a tank. Share with someone you know who needs a hand, eh? http://tanknstein.blogspot.com/2012/03/how-to-play-like-tank.html
Q4tQ *readers*: What’s the worst tank you’ve ever had? Share your stories, that we might learn from them!
Mar 14th 2012 9:29PM Hey guys, great podcast, as every week. Nice to hear monsieur Holisky talk for a change! Your discussion of the new buff outlook actually inspired a midweek blog post of mine, if anyone's interested in checking it out.
Mar 12th 2012 1:29PM UGH, was supposed to be a reply to an earlier comment thread started by me. It's a shame the "WTB new comment system" joke is so overdone.
Mar 12th 2012 1:26PM Now THERE'S an interesting idea, removing tanking plate. It kinda makes sense, but I do hope it doesn't happen...on a personal level, I don't want that many specs rolling on the same gear.
At least for Mists, though, Blizz said they weren't going to do anything radical like removing Defense Rating. For the time being, even if DPS stats were to be most valuable, we'll at least SEE the more familiar tank itemization.
