Noth25, Oh I hate him. And that was after Military Thaddius25 mini-bosses, where a mage got tossed instead of me, leading to a wipe. On Noth, it was literally impossible to hold Noth off of the three 3 enhancement shamans, the boomkin, and the mages. W.T.F. Am I that bad? From what I read I didn't think bear threat mechanics were that sucky. But I woulda given an organ if I could get the Warrior Vigilance talent, for real. Something, anything, to boost my threat. So maybe in my head I expect bear tanks should be as high insta threat as paladin tanks, as warrior tanks, and maybe that's just wrong, and I need to "educate" the dps (who don't often run with druid tanks) on that fact.
I love to tank. I'm just very persnickety about it. Trigger happy psycho-dps that ignore threat meters piss me the fuck off, and if Im' raid leading they'd be better to NOT raid with me. That said, I am such a fail tank in Wrath. It bugs me.
I tanked in TBC pretty much constantly. I was a raiding and heroic machine, and Lheaf's reputations and her collection of T3 (which took forever to get the helm) speaks for itself. I loved it. I'd like to say I was damn good. Grinding raids and heroics is about knowing the encounters and knowing the raiders/group members you're with, and anticipating how the 2 will meet. I can handle that.
Maybe I just need to pop berserk at the begining of those fights and hope it holds, and get back into the habit of yelling at stupid dps on vent. I can do that. It does NOT make me happy to have the warrior-that-usually-tanks saying on vent repeatedly "guys let her get aggro/threat" and having the smart dps say it too. I still feel like a failure.
But hey last night I got the rest of my NAXX25 clear achievements so I never have to do it again...
Note: I would totally link Lheaf's armory (really you could find her, there's only 4 and she's the only 80) but she's wearing resto gear and I'm embarassed because now I can't change it due to maintenance, and I was playing with this post in my head since Sunday so I really shoulda known better.
