That pretty much settles it. I much prefer being DPS to Tanking.
Let’s see, as a Tank, all deaths are your fault, unless you die first. Then it’s your gear’s fault. Or your lack of skillz. All mobs are belong to you, unless you can get them Crowd Controlled. No CC? QQ. Your healer can’t heal themselves out of a wet paper bag? Get yourself some better gear. Obviously.
But, being DPS. Pew pew. Pew pew. Pew. Pew pew pew. Pew KILLING BLOW! I can’t believe how many times I had KILLING BLOW pop up on my screen last night. If a mob died, and I didn’t see that, I was wondering “Did I blink?” “Did I just look away?” ”Where the heck is my Killing Blow.” I interrupt bad spells with a small Earth Shock. I keep relevant totems down and in play. I hurl lightning bolts like William Shatner. Two Heroics last night, one the daily, the other the normal dungeon daily done in Heroic mode, and like 9 Badges of Justice and some spiffy bracers, and I was feeling pretty good about things, holding my own against the Hunters.
Tanking is a thankless, but necessary job. (With most of my DS3, a few epics, I can say I’ve tanked some.)
Healing is a thankless, but necessary job. (I was the Resto Shaman, the gimp that played alts or BG’d when Molten Core wasn’t being raided.)
But without DPS, you’ll shortly be OOM then OOH. I’m loving the change of pace.
Msaker will go to the next Karazhan run. And Blackhoof will be the first to step into Zul’Aman.
