Mar 3rd 2011 7:48PM Sleep deprivation is killing me. I intended to reply to my bit, but commented a few down. Read there for bear thoughts.
Mar 3rd 2011 7:46PM My apologies. I hold tanks to a standard of being able to hold threat on more than three targets at once, as you do have to clear trash to get to the boss in every dungeon. I admit that druids do have the capability to hold threat on single targets fairly well, but what I specifically mean by saying that bear tanks are obsolete is that I just do not see them holding groups of more than three mobs without massive amounts of chaos, unlike the other three tank classes.
Mar 3rd 2011 7:22PM Tense typos, missed thoughts, whatever. Sleep deprived while posting this.
Mar 3rd 2011 7:20PM First off, druids are not tanks anymore. Every bear tank loves to think that they are good, but the fact is that 4.0.1 made them obsolete. If you do not believe me, pug with ten different bear tanks--the ones that ARE marginally successful, all less than two of them, got lucky. They just do not have the threat that they used to.
Secondly, paladin tanking is retardedly-easy. Righteous Fury + Spammer Of The Righteous, forever. At lv 85 in heroics I still see no diminishing returns with threat generated from Spammer. If you get disarmed, throw the shield if it is off CD and use Holy Wrath and Consecration to keep threat up until you can go right back to using the Spammer. Use holy charges as needed. This is possibly the most formulaic spec out of all thirty that I have played, and it is surprisingly effective with these few actions. Want to tank and want it to be really, really easy? Gear correctly and choose a prot paladin, and help contribute to the dearth of tanks in this game.
Feb 23rd 2011 12:44PM Also, I believe that the canon is that Horde "adventurers" retrieved Gorehowl and returned it to Thrall (although this is not exercised in WoW). Thrall passes it on to Garrosh.
Feb 23rd 2011 12:43PM From what I recall, when Grom and Thrall fought Mannoroth, Gorehowl was NOT retrieved by Thrall. It was left in the body of Mannoroth, which would indicate that after Thrall left, the Burning Legion retrieved it from Mannoroth's corpse. This would make sense on how Malchezaar ends up with it.
Feb 15th 2011 11:11AM You should not be catching any flak whatsoever for saying that you need a damn PvE set to do heroics. I am with you 100%, ask them to leave so we do not have to waste a kick, and failing that, kick the player who is holding us back. I generally see this more with DPS in cheaply-purchased PvP gear who think that ilvl is the only thing that makes someone a good player, though, but I rarely inspect healers unless everyone but the healer is doing their job.

Feb 9th 2011 4:38PM Who is ? You never mention where they started / what they play, and WoW definitely has not been around 15 years.
