Tankette’s Rambles

Gruuls again, Sethek Halls for Gius

Filed under: Uncategorized — tankette @ 5:28 pm

We finally scraped up enough guildies to hit Gruuls last night. The High King fight gave us trouble and it took 3 attempts to get him down. I was assigned to tank the warlock and he killed me every time. In fact, the last 3 times we’ve gone to Gruuls I’ve been assigned the warlock and every time I died. Fully buffed, I had 21K health so I just don’t understand why the healers can’t keep me alive. I have to wonder what I can do differently to stay alive but being continuously feared makes it hard to do anything at all. The last attempt I had a fear ward on me and after that was used up I hit berserker rage. That bought me some time but after the berserker rage expired it was fear city once again. I only had one healer assigned to me so maybe I need 2 healers?

Gruul was a one shot like normal. I was MT, which makes it fun. Somehow our OT died at about 25%. Luckily we had a 3rd tank. It was his first time in Gruuls but he did fine. We had to tell him to taunt to get up to second on threat but he did it and then kept 2nd the rest of the fight. Our DPS was lacking so we went to growth 13. We normally get him down about the 10th growth if our top raiders are in the raid.

After Gruuls I PUG’ed Sethek Halls on my holy priest, Gius. The guys I ran with were over geared but complete morons. I forget how many wipes we had but at one point my gear was all red and had to go repair. There were several more wipes after that. But we finally got through it, I completed a quest, got the key to Shadow Labs and dinged 69.

More farming is the plan for the next several days so I can get my epic flying mount for Tankette. I’m about halfway there. I guess I’ll need to have gold ready for the regular flying mount for Gius too.



  1. The warlock in Gruul’s uses deathcoil, so fearward and beserker rage are useless. The warlock needs to be tanked by the enslaved felhunters, or at the very least 2 tanks. And just trade taunts when the current tank gets low.

  2. aye, what speidel said. We usually always have 2 tanks taunting the warlock, and that’s only when he’s not tanked by felhunters, which is barely half the time. You need to make sure that your warlocks are doing their job banishing and enslaving the felhunters that are very important to tank the warlock boss.
    Also, only one healer might be tough if he isn’t very well geared or very skilled.

  3. LOL, I didn’t think it was my fault. I know the last time there was a felhunter biting me instead of the warlock.
