So I had a little over an hour to kill today and already did the daily on Omenscourge. Chaos needs a tree on occasion so I log my druid for some UK healing action.
We score two mages and a shadow preist and find a DK to tank. We'd been looking for a tank for 20 min so we take him.
The spec should have been a red flag. 35/0/26 All over the place too. Duel wield without any beneficial talents you bet.
Now I'm generally a nice guy. I know hes not gear nor specced to tank but played well we should be able to survive.
Frost presence, check, or so I'm told. I wish there was a way to see that on other toons.
Rotation, dnd, it, ps, pest. Check. Well not exactly. The dnd would come up on occasion against a single mob. No it, no ps, no pest.
Melee 51% of damage, followed by Death Coil? You serious? How does this guy solo quests?
Any guesses who had aggro every pull? If it wasn't me it was the two mages getting it from sheeping. Remember sheeping?We even marked kill orders and the guy would stand there and not do anything.
Maybe he was nervous. Maybe he'd never tanked before. Maybe he could have listened to the shadow preist about kill orders, or the mages about CC, or me about what abilities to use when.
I'm the first to admit, I can be wrong, I'm not perfect, and I make mistakes. But I try to learn from them.
I politely excused myself from the run claiming I wasn't up to the healing challenge of UK on my resto druid.
