Nordhbane sent me some submissions over the holiday weekend, I’ll be posting the rest shortly.
Who: Nordhbane of The Maelstrom (80)
Pet: Umtokk (80 Gorilla)
78 Palladin (Retribution)
78 Priest (Healer)
80 Priest (Disc/Holy dps)
Comments: A very different place to say the least. The trash is just irritating… way too many one-shotted mobs. The only real tanking problem in this instance was the dragon packs that spawn between 2nd and 3rd boss. Since they spawn just in front of you, and you can’t mark them properly before they attack, so everyone ended up dps:ing different targets than the one I tried to tank. Stupid dps:ers not using /assist Umtokk. The bosses were nothing to mention really. Quite simple tank and spank for most of the time.
Other Hunters who have completed this feat:
-Mahler of The Scryers (80) with Mauler (80 Gorilla) Grouped with a Druid (80) healer, Shaman (79) DPS (dinged 80 during the instance!), Hunter (80) DPS, Druid (75) healer
Mauler main tanked the entire instance of CoT: Stratholme. No wipes, though I did rez him twice during battles and got him back tanking on some of the trash pulls. We didn’t bother with CC, AOE’d everything down. The main healer did the same instance later with a PUG and said that the gorilla was a far better tank!
