The purpose of this page is to track the accomplishments of hunters as they use their pets to tank or off-tank instances and world elites. Just as guilds post “server firsts” when they down new content, we will be tracking the exploits hunters as they conquer new (and old) content. This page includes links to each post, as well as information on how to submit your own accomplishments and the rules for submission.

Submission Information

To submit your accomplishment, send me the following information via email.
-Your Name and Realm.
-Your pet’s Name, Type, and Level.
-The Class and Level of everyone in your group
-A detailed description of what you main-tanked or off-tanked. Please be as specific as possible, listing mob names you tanked (especially if you off-tanked). Include any groups or bosses you had trouble with and how you overcame the issue. If you have any tips or commentary, please add them. Identify who tanked and who healed. Note whether or not you benefit from the T5 bonus. Also, be sure to specify the difficulty (Heroic?)
(Optional) A screenshot of what you tanked. Zoom in as much as possible as I will have to reduce the size (or crop) to fit in the post. If you main tanked the instance, screenshot the most difficult boss you downed. If you don’t submit a screenshot, I may use a generic picture. Additionally, if you do not submit a screenshot, and someone else does, their post will take the top slot for the achievement (although the post will not be bumped to the first page). The reason for this is that the screenshot is a big part of the post, and it lends credibility to the post.
Note: I may contact you for more information before posting.

Submission Criteria

Criteria 1: Only level appropriate accomplishments will be recognized.
I’ll be using http://www.wowwiki.com/Instances_by_level as a guide. All players in your group must be within or around (+/- 2 Levels) the recommended level range (80 means a fresh eighty in greens/blues, 80+ means an eighty in mostly epics or better). More detail on level requirements
NOTE: exceptions will be made for outlands content before hunters pass the 70 level cap.

Criteria 2: Duplicate submissions
If someone submits an accomplishment that I already have a record of, I will append your accomplishment to the original post, unless the post is ‘capped’ at 15 submissions.
NOTE: I will also be submitting my own accomplishments, but if another player submits the same accomplishment, mine will be overwritten.

Criteria 3: Tenacity Pet
For the time being, posts will be limited to tenacity pets. Feel free to submit tanking accomplishments by non tenacity pets though, and if I get enough of them, I’ll add a section to this page for their exploits.
