Our first submission of Northrend raid content! I think it will be common to see hunters taking on the off-tanking roles during progression. Keep up the good work!
Who: Nordhbane of The Maelstrom (80)
Pet: Umtokk (80 Gorilla)
Group: Full Raid Group
Role: Off tank. Other tanks: Feral Druid, Prot Warrior
Details: Tanked Trash and Faerlina
There’s lots of small groups perfect for AoE tanking in the trash in Naxx-Spiderwing. I just sent the gorilla in with BW and let those numbers fly all over the screen. It was beautiful. The trash is kinda lame though. Easily outhealed.
I can’t really say that off tanking Faerlinas adds were much of a problem either. My role was to off-tank the next kill target, while another off-tank just kept them busy elsewhere. I’m quite sure my gorilla would have been able to hold them all at once.
What I did was to send it in on our first kill target and dps’ed it down myself in time for Faerlinas first enrage. After that was done I picked up a new target and did the same, keeping an eye on the HP so that it didn’t die too early. The last mob died a few seconds early, so we had to deal with an enrage in the end. To prevent the tank from dying I popped shield wall and taunted Faerlina to give the tank a few seconds to get back to full HP. She hits REALLY hard when she’s enraged. The tank died anyhow at about 4%, but the last tank picked it up and we managed to nuke the last couple of percent off without any other problems.
Note: Pets cannot take hateful strikes on Patchwerk. Who knew that sometimes being immune to some abilities can be a bad thing, eh? Was meant for both me and another tank to soak those strikes.
Instead of a screenshot for the fight, here’s a video, in WeGame, Youtube and full quality from my own site:
…well actually, youtube is being really slow, so I’m gonna send that one when it’s done =P It’s 2:20 AM and I’m off to bed.
