It surprises me that a clothie can tank MoP heroics (if you're being serious). Can you tell me how you do that?
Ummmm why the heck are you fire for pve? dumb hordies.
Because I play the game for the fun of it, not to fall into a continous cookie cutter spec that everybody else thinks I should be playing. So go get punted gnome.
I tend to pull aggro a lot, and most of the time its when I spread my combustion making it difficult for the tank to pull aggro back. Thus I have aggro, and thus for the time being, I am tanking. I have tanked sha of doubt on heroic because the tank got locked out, we killed the boss; and I had aggro the whole time. EXCELLENT HEALER. That is what I meant, I don't que as tank; that is just stupid, and if that is what you think I meant; you should be punted like Drphilkiller.
No, I know a mage can't q as tank, at least at the levels I've played. :) Relax. And thanks for the explanation.
I really wanna try tanking as a mage now. A coupla questions:
1) What gear do I need in order to pull it off?
2) What's a good rotation for holding aggro without dying?
3) What's the best spec for this purpose?
4) What if the heals is less than brilliant?
5) What special strategies are involved that mages normally don't use?
Thanks for your help.
Its called gaining aggro faster than anybody else can. That is usually accomplished by doing loads of dps. And if the healer can't keep up, just ice block, then invis afterwards. Keeping icebarrier and incanter's ward up as often as possible tends to help too.
