12/19/2010 11:24 AMwas checking this forum before play with my pally again. ive been tanking on this toon regular 85s and still dunno why ppl say they need cc, especially grim batol, after burn half life of mobs mounted on dragons, trash becomes too easy there, i just pull whole group on me, and healer goes half mana which is ok, having to drink every 2 pulls dont bother me, i just wait and then pull again. ppl havent complain so far as i keep aggro on all mobs. Ill save cc for heroics.

I don't really understand this comment. You should CC so you get:
1.) Experience with having to CC things (and not breaking it)
2.) Understand pulls better
3.) More efficiant heals to everyone
Regardless of how much life you have, dmg you DON'T take, or how big a mana pool the healer has, CCing has no negitive drawbacks. When a group CC's they reduce the chance for:
1.) DPS to screw up (stepping in fire etc.)
2.) Failure in Heroics (You make people experience CCing more)
3.) The healer to run out of mana (Face it, Unless I'm grinding rep, I'm not doing anything but heroics)
To add to this thread:
One time I was told to stop QQing:
*Notice I'm a healer*
- Pulls Wyrmlord in H Grim Batol
- Dragon spawns
- Tank doesn't move out of fire, DPS is all melee and doesn't move
- Tank dies
Me: "Tank move please, fire isn't good ^^" (Obviously just letting the guy know)
Tank: "So sorry next time can you DPS him better, If he dies then we don't have to worry about it"
Tank: "Yea I just looked at Recount said you were only pulling 5k DPS, stop being a newb and l2p"
Group: "Ummm he's a healer and my recounter is showing only about 16DPS (From judgements) overall"
Tank: "Oh right then..."
Another time in H Lost City
- Recently we just wiped
*Everyone is eating/drinking*
Next thing I see the tank pulls 4 mobs + merchants, we arn't buffed, healed, and tank is sitting at around 35% health (me at 100% mana from spirit regen)
Tank: "God ****it healer L2 Heal plz, I'm tired of newbs like you failing my groups in heroics"
Group: "Are you blind?? You had 35% health and we were unbuffed"
Me: "Plus we were unbuffed and no one CC'd, why don't you L2Look"
Tank: "Are you kidding me? Buffs are for the weak! Only newbs use Buffs"
Tank: "Also, Failadin; why don't you use Turn Undead on the Mobs to CC?"
*Tank was a paladin*
Me: "Look at the tooltip"
"Tank leaves party"
