Jan 7th 2010 8:05AM I would disagree. If the tank's no good, no matter how good the healer, they won't be able to keep the DPS alive if they keep pulling aggro, and they won't be able to keep themselves alive if they pull healing aggro.
On the other side, I've seen tanks that can take trash packs and bosses in heroics without dying, so as long as they heal themselves up before each pull, they should be ok without a competant healer.

Something so satisfying about that spell. The graphic is awesome and watching someones health jump up so quickly is awesome. Not to mention giving a little extra dps while healing heroics :D

Sep 21st 2009 8:45AM After taking a 6 month break, I decided to return to WoW on a char which was my main in TBC and abandoned at the start of WLK. It's a feral druid that I had intended on gearing for DPS, but after about 3 weeks of ToC5, heroics, VoA and Naxx I found myself successfully tanking ToC10 with only two wipes on Faction Champs (mainly due to lack of PvP experience).
I think it's never been easier to gear up if you're committed. Heroic badges can get you up to ilvl 226 gear and a combination of VoA and dailies will get you a steady trickle of badges to buy ilvl 245 gear :S My main advice is to just spec DPS in order to gear up both DPS and tank sets, since most tanks already have all the gear they want and are only grinding heroics for badges. When you feel ready, dual spec for tanking and then just offer to tank to your abilities, starting off with easy guild heroics and working up to 25 man PuGs :P

I think it's great to remember the names and "faces" you spent your evenings with, not to mention that epic feeling you got when stepping into your first raid :D

Mar 18th 2009 8:15AM Unfortunately I think a lot of people use the anonymity of the internet to their benefit, especially in pug runs. They think that they can ninja stuff, get moaned at for 5 mins, then disappear and never feel the repercussions of their actions. This is exactly the same reasons flame wars start on forums... No one would say that kind of thing to someone face in real life if they were standing next to them, would they?
Others I guess are just tempted by something they've strived after for so long. Some guild never saw DSTs in BC and pug runs to Gruul on my server could get pretty dicey if one dropped. I've heard of previously respectable guild members going nuts and needing on Glaives and immediately /gquitting.
If anything, the latter saddens me more. The first kind are just plain dicks, but the others are generally nice people who are caught in a moment of madness that they often can't take back.
Mar 1st 2009 9:24AM My first char was a huntard. After getting to leve 20 or so by buying new gear every single level, maximising my armor and neglecting all other stats, I realised that I was still taking loads of damage when meleeing and decided to quit the game...
When I came back, I rerolled a warrior and skilled up Skinning and Leatherworking because I had them on my hunter and knew how they worked...
I also didn't learn Taunt until about level 50 because I rationaled that "Why would I want the mob to hit me if it's already on someone else? I want some kind of reverse taunt to get it off me!"... *shakes head*
After that I got pretty well schooled by the MT in my first guild who said that DPS warrs were uselss and that Prot was the only tree worth speccing into :( Needless to say, it took rerolling another couple of mains and swapping to a proper raiding guild to know that was all rubbish!
