View Full Version : Threat on Anub

In 10-man Heroic ToC, my guild is having major threat problems with a shaman wielding a Val'anyr at the 30% mark on Anub. Chain heal spam pulls off the add tank every time. Thoughts? MT is a Pally, OT is a feral druid. Both equally geared.

Chainheal spam is not the answer in this phase because it does not help in letting the groups consistently drop. Droods and priests are better for that job and the shamans 10% physical damage reduction is more than a nice bonus on the tanks.
Changing drood and pally roles is another thing that could work because the drood has time to build an enormous lead on Anoob until phase three and the pally is the better choice to tank the adds anyway because of the way block works with them.
If those two are no options, then just go with the flow and tell the involved three to use their skills.

Hand of Salvation - Spell - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=1038) on shammy
Growl - Spell - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=6795) on add when the shit hits the fan... ;)
Possible additions are (depending on your raid composition that is) more hands on shammy from additional paladins, misdirecting the adds to the bear from hunters and trickíng the adds to the bear from rogues.

It really helps to have a good position for the 30%, we have a resto shammy tank healing but his chain cast healing waves still genenrate decent threat. To minimise risk, we have everyone stood inside the boss and have him tanked near the end he starts with an ice patch between him and the holes the burrowers come from. You can't always cover every angle but all you really need is one of them to be slowed to give you time to build direct threat on one and save taunt for another (assuming you take 2 of them) when it nears the healers.
