So I got all revved up and decided to tank some heroics on my warrior….I have lost a little confidence in being a tank to be honest, I feel really bad that I can’t seem to hold multiple adds very well….and I know it is just experience, but I feel like a right royal twat sometimes when I am in a group with all randoms, because they don’t know that I am new to tanking….no one has said anything about it though, so can’t be too bad, and when I have told them I am new to tanking I generally get compliments so that is always good.
However tonight….tonight was kickarse!! I tanked HoS!! Yes HoS!! You know the sucky instance with Brann Wankerbeard needing to be protected during that event? I tanked it!! And by tanked I mean we didn’t wipe! We had a little trouble towards the end of the event as the 2 DPS had died from standing in a fire so mobs were running around everywhere and I was doing my best to grab them all, but I don’t have a heck of a lot of AOE taunting moves…..anyway….we survived, well the rest of us did 😀
Then as luck would have it we got UP next. You know with the gauntlet of death and the insane flying boss, well I managed to do that as well!! LOL I was on a high!! We wiped once in UP – I didn’t get far enough into a corner to do a LoS pull, so I know for next time. I got my red sword of courage!!! So I have a much better weapon now that people can stop mocking me for…apparently my quest reward for killing Durn at level 65 was not considered a good weapon for my tanky 😀 hehehe
So I think I am starting to get a little more confident. Having some raid experience now and some better gear is making it a little easier to feel like I am able to click tank on the random heroic thing now!! Just need to keep the momentum going and get the gear happening 😀 I would like to start tanking on her more often 😀 I do enjoy it when I am having a good night J
Oh that’s right I also tanked ToC!!! As in I was one of the tanks – actually tanking!! The RL had me doing all the icky things like picking up adds “I nailed it” hehehe.
Only need another 10 triumps for an offhand and ring upgrade…..woot woot!
