Third boss. I ask if everyone knows what to do with the bombs. Everyone answers yes. No one throws bombs. We wipe with everything eating my face.
Second time around I grab a bomb and start tossing. I would have tossed more but had to heal. Came in second in DPS at 74k. The DPS DK who followed my example came in at 101k. Everyone else, 20k...
*hits head on keyboard*
When I do this boss, even with guildies, I consistently top the damage done simply via bombs. Ghost Wolf is so great for running around and grabbing them!
I had a weird one from a healer on my Monk, leveling as Brewmaster tank.
Level 82, get into Vortex Pinnacle, I have about 62k health at that point, mostly Cata pieces but still a few Wrath relics.
The healer tried to tell me that his previous run had a DK tank, level 84, with 200k health. I am honestly confused at this, like, is that level of health actually possible at 84, even with full MoP BoE blues or something?
When I mention I am actually at an appropriate level of health for that dungeon (I mean, fresh 85 tanks had ~120k and only got to 200k+ near the end of Cata...), he says "no you just suck" and leaves.
New healer, another Monk comes in, we get along great and do a good three dungeons together. At one point I apologized for feeling squishy as I am still leveling and learning Monk tanking priorities (usually get Healer when I queue), the healer even told me I was doing great, it was the Rogue with us messing things up.
Also had a Warlock pull the dragon in Vortex Pinnacle before the healer was even up on the ledge (she was drinking after the big 6-pull before the boss), I went into preservation-mode as a Brewmaster and used my Guards and Expels and Healing Elixirs and everything to survive until the dragon was at like 5% before puttering out. Warlock says "np I am just OP" .. To which I respond "No, me surviving without a healer long enough for you to not get two-shotted is OP, if anything." The dragon hit him once after I died, brought him to ~25% health through his built-up shield. <.<;
