Can't tank Naxx without Naxx epics
I am getting this all the time. I understand MT'ing a Naxx pug the raid will want to err on more HP, but even OT'ing I'm told I'm not geared enough. I'm a few items short of completely done with heroics. A few badge upgrades here and there, but these are all very minor upgrades in the whole scheme of things. Its beyond frustrating to watch a 700 dps hunter in greens get a Naxx invite and while the pug is spamming LF1M OT they tell me I need 27k hp to go.
Maybe its a bad server, maybe bad play times, maybe I am undergeared and just being greedy. I don't know, but what I'd like to know is this:
Is it too late to tank?
Because I didn't take a week off when WotLK came out to level immediately to 80 (actually was 30 when WotLK came out, reroll) does that mean I just have to sit tight until the next level bump for my chance to tank anything?
Or should I switch to dps and start pilfering leftovers from the pug tanks until my gear is decent enough to finally be acceptable by the blue-geared healers?
This is QQ, but its quite frustrating. So far the only non heroic I've tanked is VoA, much to the entire raid's groaning that I only had 22k hp unbuffed (I kept aggro and didn't die, so f' them). I'm just looking for some suggestions. When I completely max out my gear from non-raids in the next week or two and am still getting turned down from raids I'll likely just say f' it and go play a facerolling huntard
