Tankette’s Rambles

Now that we have been patched . . .

Besides spending hours repairing/replacing broken addons, I have had a little time to check out the new abilities. I can’t say I have a good ability rotation yet. I hit Revenge when its up. I hit shield slam when its up. I hit Shockwave when its up. I throw in some Devastates and Thunderclaps in between all that. I put up Shield Block when it is up as well, which is a whole lot less than it used to be. What I’ve lost in the rotation is the occasional Heroic Strike. I just haven’t been able to get one more ability in with all that.

It seems like I am doing 2 to 3 times the damage as before the patch and without even leaving Defensive Stance.

Charge while in combat? While in Defensive Stance? That’s a very nice buff right there. I’m not sure I’ll ever need to stance dance now.

Hopefully tonight we will get a 25 raid going. Some of our guild went into Kara last night and said it was a joke how easy it was. I guess with the nerfed raids and buffed character abilities we’ll mow through a bunch of new bosses before WoTLK. It will feel like cheating but at least we’ll see the content.



  1. Before our server crashed (again!) last night, we managed to down Najentus, the first boss in Black Temple.

    He was down in about half the time it took us pre-patch.

    The phrase “far too easy” springs to mind, sadly.

  2. I agree. It is kind of a let down how easy the raids have become. I guess they are at the skill level to where brand new level 70’s can survive them since that will probably be all that will do them after WoTLK has been out for a while.

  3. […] pretty deadly soloing in PvE in disc/holy spec, but then i discovered that so is every other Tom, Dick and Harry. For my part is seems to be three main sources.  Firstly Holy Fire is pretty nasty […]
