Can’t wait to see that tanking Quel’Delar!

…Oh, wait.

We don’t feel there is a need for it [it = a tanking QD — Z]? We aimed to make sure that every class had something to gain from the Quel’Delar series, but that doesn’t mean every spec of every class. Could a tank use the one handed dps version of Quel’Delar? Yes, it may give them more threat. Is this ideal for surviving while tanking? No, but there are other items available for that.

I leave the internet for 3 days, only to come back to this. We all saw it coming, but I still had some scrap of hope!

I’ve still got my fingers crossed for a tanking legendary to finally show up in Cataclysm. …Just as soon as I can get these pigs to finally take flight.

On another note, I’m already calling it: Vänas dual-wield tanking with a Quel’Serrar and Quel’Delar, before I have either one, just to spite me.


Another one of those tanking survery posts…

I just filled this out on our guild website, since it popped up there from one of my co-tanks. Figured I might as well cross post it here, for posterity at the least.

Is that some progression I see there?

Heroic NRB Down!

Why, yes, yes it is. Heroic NRB has been mementowned.

I’ve been busy with things other than my paladin, for the first time since he hit 80. Not only are we finally progressing again (1/5 Trial of the Grand Crusader after one night!), but the siren song of my old main is calling. Only this time, he’s only being used for PVP, which is so far out of character for me that I’m not sure it’s really me playing him.

Anyway, hopefully there will be more interesting posts coming! I’ve got an idea for an aspect of 3.3 I haven’t seen discussed much anywhere else, if at all… I just need to find time to write it!

P.S. For what it’s worth, the loot was this neck, and these shoulders. I took the shoulders for holy, since no one else wanted them :|

It turns out you can remain in the Halloween (errr… Hallow’s End) costumes if you only auto-attack, or wand.

Oh, and I’m putting the finishing touches on the post about soloing the entirety of H-HoL. It’s turning out a lot longer than I had planned.

“We” can solo… Volkhan (Heroic HoL)

So… I’m still saved to H-HoL from soloing Bjrangrim last night, but it’s the double daily today. I’m planning on soloing the whole thing once instance lockouts reset in a bit.

I didn’t take any screenshots of General Bjarngrim last night, but I will when I go back later.

Here’s a couple of shots from the Volkhan fight I just finished up, though. It was tricky, because I didn’t understand the mechanics of his Shattering Stomp at first, so I was saving all my cooldowns for when it happened. Once it finally did, it took me by surprise and I missed bubbling through it, so that was the one death I had.
