I still like tanking and healing more than anything else in the game, but they have their deficiencies while you're trying to smash Hexos into a well-deserved stain on the floor. In order to finish off Brawler's Guild achievements, I went DPS for the first time in 6 years and then thought, "This is actually kind of fun. Let's try some LFR and see what this puppy does in a raid."
In a matter of days, I and my hapless raid-mates encountered the following:
- A tank who RP-walked to everything. (Spoils took forever.)
- A tank who posted the meters after each trash pull and boss to make fun of the least well-geared DPS.
- Tanks who couldn't be persuaded to kill the blademasters in Gates of Retributon, trapping the entire raid in perma-combat.
- Tanks who kept taunting Thok back and forth to alternately breathe on or tail-swipe the raid.
