Given the above, I'm scouting the 'Hoof playing field for a permanent tanking spot in a Thunder King raid group that has plans to eventually head into Heroic Thunder King. 10-man or 25-man doesn't matter to me.
Now you know what I want, here's a bit of what I expect you will want to know:
-I've been raiding since you were in diapers and I know everything you don't (Translation: Started playing MMO's in '99, have serious high end raid experience during about a quarter of that time period. Everquest and WoW. I'm NOT a big deal like Ron Burgundy, just saying I have experience.)
-Super sexy chat voice, but I will not steal your ladies, just your eargasms (Translation: I have a voice that won't annoy you in chat, and I regularly use Mumble and Vent)
-I want to tank all the things (Translation: I don't want to dps or heal. Just tank. However, I understand certain encounters call for certain things. I'm fine with being an off-tank or having to dps on fights where only one tank is needed.)
-I have the will and desire to push through new content. Back in the old EQ days, when you attempted a boss, you didn't have websites detailing their strats. You had to spend days, nights, sometimes weeks figuring out how to kill the boss. And this was with 1-2 hour periods until the next pull. I'm all for anything similar to that experience, should we encounter it.
-My gear (as of right now, ilvl 486 equipped) isn't horrible. As far as reforging/gemming/enchanting, I use askmrrobot, but follow Theck's theorycraft mostly. I follow his control/haste gear theory.
-I've written a few guides over on Maintankadin, mostly stealing and compiling info from various places, and I look to write many more. I say this and the note above just to let you know that I keep up with the Protection Paladin focused community.
Anyways, I'll spare you more details. Please contact me here or in-game if you're interested in giving me a shot.
