The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Cataclysm tanking, part 4 {WoW}

Apr 9th 2011 7:01PM avoid *getting paralyzed*. Bah.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Cataclysm tanking, part 4 {WoW}

Apr 9th 2011 6:56PM I'll add a couple other tips:

Add-ons:
Tidy Plates + Threat Plates =-=-=-=-=
Simultaneously the best and worst tanking add-on you can have. Best because you instantly know which mob you're losing threat on, and worst because always knowing when a fight is getting out of hand means sooner or later you get to watch a trainwreck in slow motion when DPS decides to unload on the wrong targets and Shockwave is on cooldown. Still worth it, though.

Specific tips, from my run today.
Stonecore Heroic - Ozruk
1a. When Ozruk starts casting ground slam, run straight through him.
1b. When Ozruk starts casting ground slam, run straight through him.
1c. When Ozruk starts casting ground slam, run straight through him.
1d. When Ozruk starts casting ground slam, run straight through him.
1etc. When Ozruk starts casting ground slam, run straight through him.

2. Your shield slam kills his shield, which magic DPS and heals need to bounce a DoT off of to avoid. Sort out how long they need to bounce their dots BEFORE the fight. You can single-handedly wipe a group by sticking to your standard rotation.

3. Do not charge Ozruk after fleeing shatter. You will almost certainly overshoot and wind up behind him, which means his ground slam will be pointed at the party. They won't see it coming, and will get splattered. Run back, or heroic leap.

The Daily Quest: A modest proposal {WoW}

Apr 9th 2011 7:41AM There's a nice rejoinder in the comments on that post:
"So how about an account flag that doesn’t let you queue as dps in LFD unless you have tanked one on an alt that day?"

Patch 4.1: New Wailing Caverns layout unveiled {WoW}

Apr 7th 2011 10:05PM I can think of only one: I think we lost the freefall into the water after killing Serpentis (?) and the giant.

That makes me sad. :-(

Patch 4.1: Blizzard unveils dungeon finder Call to Arms {WoW}

Apr 6th 2011 9:58PM @Toy: Because as a geared 85 prot/fury warrior, I can easily solo Heroic UP, Heroic MT, Kara and East Strath for the mounts, but they're all *way* the hell out of my way and everything I get in there is essentially vendor trash for me.

The only upgrades I can get now (as a non-raider) is VP gear, ad because I don't raid there's not much incentive to random as a tank if it's not a guild run. Tanking for pugs does not help me unwind after work.

I wonder how they plan to handle people queuing as a tank/heals, then zoning in and going "LOLSRY, I clicked wrong box. U tank wrrur." (Although, TBH, I've never personally encountered this despite winding up taking over as tank about 40% of the time).

Apr 6th 2011 9:46PM Also, calling this now: the first tank toybox I open will have the [Reigns of the Ravenlord] inside, and I will LMFAO because I farmed Sethekk for the better part of 3 months after 4.01 dropped chasing that bird before I got it.

Apr 3rd 2011 2:15PM Question for the Queue:
Way back at the start of March, MMO-Champion posted a map of a new Firelands zone/daily quest hub. Any further news of this?

Apr 3rd 2011 2:03PM Quote: "Blizzard hasn't said anything about it, and they also haven't removed any raid achievement mounts since the original Naxxramas protodrakes. I wouldn't fret about it unless Blizzard brings it up."

IIRC, they did say they regretted removing those protodrakes. No cite for that though.

Around Azeroth: Mounted combat {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2011 1:38PM Judging from their tabard, I'd say at least some of them are actually from Saskatchewan. Those are the Saskatchewan Roughrider CFL team colours.
