What on earth am I doing wrong?
Ok, skipping the history lesson, I end up being just way too bloody squishy to tank heroics despite having a couple of the best healers on the server with me regularly. In some cases, it's totally my bad. I LOS the priest and end up dying. Yay for stupid. Usually, I do pretty well with that though.
Ok, since armory's back up, I can throw my spec in there too!
The World of Warcraft Armory
Be Imba! - the online Character Auditor for World of Warcraft
Moving on. And yes, I've been sticking to Heroics to get geared/practice for bigger things. I've got about 24k HP buffed, and 32% total avoidance to go with my def cap (Actually def rate is 550, so I'm thinking of changing my rune from SSG to Swordshattering)
My rotation is DnD, IT, PS, Pest - reapply diseases, 2xBB, HB. Dump as needed.
Holding aggro isn't a problem unless there's a reckless ret pally in the group that doesn't give me a two second head start, and I face mobs (trash too) away from the group since nobody's hit/exp capped.
I figure the issue is my gear, but I'm broke as hell (Like 150g currently) and I'm the only active/geared tank in my guild, which means there's CONSTANT demand for me, which just turns to a bunch of us congratulating each other for valliant, yet losing efforts. I've literally gone broke off repairs, and taken a few guildies with me. Is there anything I can do differently to keep Skytzophrenik afloat?
