Hello all. A tank friend of mine has informed me that he saw a video helping with mob positioning while tanking. I can't find the thing for the life of me. Anyone familiar with this video and/or where I might be able to find it?

Thanks,

Zen

It was hidden away in the news forums not Project Marmot for some reason. There's also another part to the guide concerning camera control which is useful too:

While we're on this subject, I have a related question. I've watched the video and know how to move mobs with the target circle method shown in the vid.

However, sometimes don't want to move the mob, only rotate it in place. What's the best way to do this? When I circle-strafe around it, many times the mob doesn't rotate, but moves diagonally back, into my circle strafe path, but still facing the same direction. And sometimes it just rotates as I want it to. Haven't figured out what I'm doing differently here. Anyone know?
