Last night my guild went in to finish up our first Ulduar 25 we had begun on Wednesday. The run on Monday didn’t go as horribly as some of us assumed it would, we actually managed to down Loot Mobile, Razorscale, and Ignis. (In all honesty the Ignis down was a total shock after wiping so many times.) Well as we went back in last night, we had hopes of clearing up to Kolo, and putting in attempts as IC and Auriaya.

Well, I’ve realized you can’t always get what you ask for. As painful as it was last night, we only managed to down XT.

We attempted Kolo, but his problem was people were constantly sawing people in half with the lazer… WTF!? Because it’s so hard to see a giant beam of blue light following you. On top of that, the DPS we had wasn’t quit meeting the minimum standard we were hoping for. I was resto for this particular raid, but as kitty I can usually hold my own in a 25 man pulling roughly 3-4k depending on the situation in my T7 and miscellaneous Naxx 25 gear.

Boss-man Mach wanted to have a minumum of 3K DPS that some people, granted it was mostly because of thier gear level, couldn’t quite meet that minimum requirement. So, the only solution, to try and continue as many Naxx 25 and Ulduar 10 raids as possible to gear the remaining members of our guild to Ulduar 25 standards. There’s only one small problem.

We have 3 main tanks in the guild, and only a few members who have alts or off-specs to tank and are willing to put up with the harrassment in raids we give our tanks. On top of that, all three of them are limiting thier tanking quota so they don’t get burnt out. So the question is who are we going to pester to tank these Naxx 25 and Ulduar 10 mans?

 

“You know Mika…. we don’t have a druid tank…”

“>.> Yeah…. aaaaaand??”

“Well you ARE the only kitty in the guild…”

“Sooo….???”

“Well it wouldn’t be hard for you to swap out some gems and gear and you-”

“Hahahahahaha…. WHAT!?”

 

And that is how I was guilted into considering to tank for the guild’s lower raids.

So today at work I’ve spent my morning reading up on different forums and blogs doing my research for stats that druid tanks require. It doesn’t seem that difficult, to sum everything up I’ve come to the conclusion I can be hit capped, expertise capped, with ~37k health and 35k armor in a week or two, no problem. Between being an avoidence or mitigation tank was a bit of a tough choice, but from the readings I’ve gathered, mitigation is the way to go in progression content for druid tanks.

 

After being a healer for so long, it’ll be interesting to see things from the other end of the spectrum.
