Definitely.

Any other tanks noticing the DPS meta proccing less often? Dropped from ~40 PPM this morning to ~16 this afternoon. Wouldn't surprise me at all to see it nerfed, just wondering if any other tanks are seeing it.

I DON'T WANNA.

I HATE KITE TANKING.

Also, did monks receive some stealth nerfs/DKs receive stealth DPS buffs I missed? I can't imagine I would be doing THIS much less DPS switching builds, but...

It was hotfixed, or bugged, somewhere at the end of last night.

Guessing bugged from the threads I've been looking at. Hitting the higher procrate classes harder (e.g. the mut rogue who's now got pretty much the same procrate as the tank in his group). Kind of curious if unholy/enhancement are seeing much, if any, change.

That, and guardian and feral still have the same procrate, and if they were intentionally looking at capacitive, that seems like an obvious fix to make.

E: And now that the bug they put in is fixed, it looks like they did fix the guardian vs. feral procrate issue. Yay.

Someone who's bored look at my warrior's log from tanking Blade Lord in an openraid pug and tell me how I'm bad.

use demo shout more

shield wall is up for every 2nd OA (i use demo shout for the 1 stacks)

you generated 1145 rage on attempt 2, but only had 9 shield blocks and 7 shield barriers - with 60 barriers that actually leaves you about ~200 odd rage short, which I'm not sure what you spent it on

12 heroic strikes, 8 ultimatum procs, that doesn't even make up for the rage that mysteriously disappeared

your berserker rage usage is okay, so there's that

Vengeance is a dumb stupid idea anyway and IMO was the wrong way to fix whatever was broken.

I don't have the solution, but I've always hated vengeance.
I wrote up some solutions to Vengeance a while back, but then I decided to click ctrl-X before posting. Possibly it was the hero needed and not the hero deserved.

I have it saved somewhere.

I also wrote something for mastery, back when block-capping was a thing (i.e. before mastery), but I would be ashamed to take credit for the writing style now.

And hello from Louisiana, now.

We had a rogue tank in Black Temple on Reliquary of Souls for the first phase. With Evasion up he was unhittable, I believe, so it worked well for the mini-enrage phases.

And then in phase three I played Shadow Word: Death Roulette. When I hit the button, something died. Usually me, but occasionally the boss!
