Hunter tank update
We just 3 manned VoA. MM hunter, lock and me MM tanking with my turtle.
I didn’t think to take screen shots of the boss fights, but the guild got an achievement while we were in there, so….. close enough!
Storm boss we one-shot but I was the only one alive at the end. Probably would have been easier had we not ignored the mechanics and burned the boss.
Fire boss was easy. Straight tank and spank.
Ice boss took two tries and we almost wiped… Nemesis died around 22% and I had to rez him real quick. It was a bit of a mess trying to get aggro back on my turtle, but we managed to down him. We ended up tanking him on the stairs and in the hallway, partially on purpose, partially because shit got out of control mid-fight. The lock died at some point towards the end and the other hunter died around 8% or so. I was at something like 10% HP and another orb was spawning as I got the boss to 2%. It was pretty intense tbh.
Stone boss was easy. Mostly a tank and spank, Nemesis took a fair amount of damage from the spikes, but I was able to heal through it with burst damage and Mend Pet.
Still no plans to solo any part of VoA at any point.
I attempted to solo Magtheridon for about an hour today before I gave up and asked for help. It’s VERY challenging but doable… the fight takes ~20 minutes to do solo as a hunter. I lost my patience and was too frustrated to keep trying. The fight was INCREDIBLY easy to 2man with a Prot Pally and Nemesis off-tanking adds. Having the Pally tank allowed me to pet swap in the middle and use my cat for P2 and 3.
Turtle tanked Gruul’s Lair with a level 84 mage. The council was a bit tricky, but Gruul was cake. I could see this possibly being soloable with a LOT of add control… maybe as BM for extra interrupts?
I’m still farming regular BWD for that helm token from Nef. I attempted pugging it again earlier tonight and one of the DKs didn’t know how to tank the adds and was failing to learn so I just said “do you want me to tank the adds since you can’t” and guess what… I ended up tanking the adds. Hunter tank strikes again! First couple tries were not very good, but I got my shit together on the third try and the adds all died in a nice little pile in the corner like they’re supposed to. ^_^
My turtle tanked CoC for a guildie.
We 3-manned it: fully geared 85 Warrior, me in my “solo set” and an 84 hunter.
Nemesis only died once on the Worgen boss, but I got a quick rez off while the warrior kited the boss and we were back in business. Not bad for my first time tanking CoC, I think. I’d like to try it again and I’ll make sure to keep Mend Pet up more on that boss. Maybe the death is unavoidable, who knows.
