Popping my Tanking Cherry in 4.01

I was hesitant to try tanking in Patch 4.01. I heard so many horror stories about threat, or lack there of. It had to be done though. I had to break the Pally in. So Queue’d up for Random, and let’s see where, we end up.

I was just so not hoping for Forge of Souls, let’s just say not my luckiest dungeon to date.  Ahh I got the Utgarde Keep…..Easy…Breazy.

Oh dear the DPS I had too was phenom, a Geared Out Rogue who could probably tank the place himself, a DK, and a Lock. The Healer a Shaman had his game so tight, I don’t think he even flinched once when I loss threat.

There are real threat issues though, I wasn’t keeping it like I once was, and I see that in a lesser group this would be a real issue, and needs to be addressed with Blizz.  Other then that it wasn’t that bad, and I didn’t do all that bad. I was using taunt to no end though.

The New Rotation needed to get used too as well and was a bit chaotic. I was kind of all over the board with that.

Now that I broke my cherry…. I’m ready to go get some more….and become the tanking slut I was mean to be.

GOLD MAKING TIP:  I just wanted to toss this in here cause I know Markco’s Blogging Carnival is tomorrow. BTW I love the new layout of his.

Well Mongoose Enchant is quite the big seller, one of the ingredients is Large Prismatic Shards. I get them lowest for around 12g each. Well there’s an enchant that you can take 3 Small Prismatic Shards, and turn them into a Large Prismaitc Shard.  I can get Small Prismatic Shards for 2g a piece, so that makes them 6g for 1 Large Prismatic Shard.  So be on the lookout for cheep small shards, and if you don’t have that enchant….GET IT!

  1. Ok, cool post and all… but that picture is …. blargh. She look-a-like-a Man.

    And she has an apple and… what is that?? A Pooper-Scooper?

    PS I will be trying out this enchanting strategy. 🙂

  2. I think this is exactly how Blizzard means for it to be. It means the dps has to be conscious about their threat management.

    The other thing. The current content exists of aoe tanking, especially in dungeons. On beta I found that you’ll be CCing a lot more, and tank threat on single targets is a lot better than on groups.

    All in all I find it very difficult to judge stuff like this until the actual content that belongs with the new specs is available.
