Respec sucks!

Postby Suztang » Thu Mar 27, 2008 5:29 pm

so after 50+ long lvls of dps fun times.....i was advised by my guild that i should put the dps beer bong down and tank. i didnt have to much of a problem with this at first cause that means i get a auto opened slot in family raids...but i just dont have that damage power i had before. i feel like a big gorilla with a plastic t-ball bat.

/cry :cry:

everyone tells me once i get used to prot more i will start to like it. o wellz!!! :P let me get your guys opinion on it....

each guild must have at least 2 dps warriors for raiding imo. if you think you will survive and you want to stay dps look for another guild

well the thing is im the only "potential" tank in my guild being the only warrior above 25....so yea. and i cant leave my guild, well i could, but im in a family guild so its 10x easier for us to get stuff done then in any other kind guild imo. whats probably gunna happen is im gunna lvl up my rogue and he'll be my fall back toon. and to be honest my warrior got boring around lvl 50. it gets old when your only tactic is to "out-dps" everything.

well, if they want you to be prot...
i think its not that bad. i mean, "last stand" for example ( http://thottbot.com/s12975 ) is pure awesomeness imo, not only in instances.

And think about it;
a massive tauren warrior playing tank... Would look sweet.

Only detail is that he'll be wearing armor, shield & weapon but bah, details.
Anyway, tanking can't be that horrible, can it?

I think tanking is by far one of the funnest and most challenging things you can do in WoW. You also get to be the center of attention all the time, which is great too. It's always nice to be important on raids!

I'm thinking of re-speccing my paladin to Retribution, since their role's more clearly defined now and they aren't so broken...

...thing is, I'm stuck with some sorta sucky gear. Entire Scaled Crusader's gear, 2/3 Khorium Ward and the T4 bracers. My weapon's a Sonic Spear.

protadins? fun in lvling? wata fack?
been lvling the 61 pally of a friend once.
LOL.
tons of armor, ridiculous dps: i had to grind single mobs for hours! (i didnt know how to aoe them, though...). and a 2hander without ret spec sucks, too.

but feral druids > other lvling tanks, yur right sir!

Plus, dpsers will be putty in your hands if you are a good tank. I used to chain run heroics with a warrior friend of mine because he made it so FUN for me -- never had to worry about aggro, could just dps my heart out. As a shadow priest (aka, no real aggro dump), my heart belongs to tanks.
