Stonecore. My little special place was always the hallway leading up to Ozruk. Both my shaman and druid pulled out some crazy stops to the most insane overpulls I have ever seen in that hallway.
I remember one time in Cata tanking that on heroic a couple months into the expansion. I was fortunately in full raid gear at the time when everything and it's brother seemed to get pulled. Somehow I manage to pick up everything and am blowing cd's along with the healer to stay alive. We manage to get through the piles of mobs (seriously at one point I couldn't see my tank till the big guy shot me in the air).
DPS 1: Wow that was awesome. Can't believe we lived.
Healer: Good tanking :)
Me: Well, I couldn't have done it without your heals.
Healer: I was able to keep you up since you know how to tank.
Me: I have my moments.
DPS 2: Let's do it again!
Me: *bops DPS*
That one still makes me smile.
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Those stories are probably my most extreme. It was epic encounters like healing through the 2nd boss of Grim Batol's mace on my shaman or having a resto druid pull two groups in ZA for my prot paladin because I wasn't challenging enough to heal.
I sometimes miss those heroics. My fiancee mained a warrior tank so when I ran with him I was Ret. So many times it was just him and me beating down a boss because the group derped and stood in stupid for too long. He got so used to running with me that he missed the LoH that I always tossed out to save him along with my AoE taunt (God I miss that) to drag stuff that ran off back to us when I wasn't with him.
