We have Illidan down but I'm just crusing the WWS report and I notice that the tank is taking some melee hits at full hits and they aren't blocked. He is passively uncrush to a dw mob, so I'm just wondering how is he taking an unblock hit?

Xyen is main tank.

23:13'03.421 Zoh's Lifebloom dot heals Xyen for 277
23:13'04.484 Ability:Flame Crash's Flame Crash hits Xyen for 3173 Fire damage (1250 resisted)
23:13'04.484 Zoh's Lifebloom dot heals Xyen for 278
23:13'05.390 Illidan Stormrage's Swing hits Xyen for 6555 Physical damage
23:13'05.406 Zoh's Lifebloom dot heals Xyen for 555
23:13'05.468 Zoh's Regrowth dot heals Xyen for 507
23:13'05.671 Xyen's Earth Shield heals Xyen for 915
23:13'05.937 Illidan Stormrage's Swing hits Xyen for 3235 Physical damage (484 blocked)
23:13'06.406 Zoh's Lifebloom dot heals Xyen for 555
23:13'06.703 Illidan Stormrage's Swing hits Xyen for 7331 Physical damage (484 blocked)
23:13'07.265 Thragdor's Flash of Light heals Xyen for 1792
23:13'07.578 Zoh's Lifebloom dot heals Xyen for 832
23:13'07.578 Illidan Stormrage's Swing hits Xyen for 3514 Physical damage

I don't believe Illidan suffers from the dual wield penalty. Additionally, he doesn't crush, so it doesn't really matter if unblocked hits get through. That and if your tank is actively trying to block hits from Illidan instead of saving shield block for shears, you got bigger problems than unblocked hits getting through.

oh, I didn't know that Illidan doesn't crush.

Like I said, this isn't a question about of how to beat etc, but just a mechanic question.

Seeing unblocked hits on Illidan is normal.

As mentioned before, Illidan doesn't suffer from a dual-wield miss penalty - but he also does not crush. His Shear ability cannot miss, so your tank has to save his Shield Block / Holy Shield ability to prevent shears. It's just a simple "can you do something other than spam buttons?"-check for tanks.

FWIW, he's not really capable of bursting through Holy Shield (would take 8 attacks + Shear's 1.5 sec cast in 10 seconds), and the attempt or two where I tried saving Holy Shield for Shear I ran into GCD issues.

Not really on topic, but thought I'd mention it.
