follow tanks, healers, please help me out here. I am a little furstrated.
Here's the situation. I am one of the 2 "main" tanks. I say main tanks because most ICC fights requires 2+ tanks. Ok, apparently, there are healers are complaining I am hard and harder to heal compare to our druid tank. I gear for armor/HP. I am the tank that takes the festergut super buffed punches (that is the 2nd tank :)
The druid is gearing entirely for avoidance and they think I should gear avoidance to help out the healers (some of them are also new and not as geared as others in guild for long). Our tanks, healers, raid leaders (who some also tank or has tank alts) think that my EH gearing is not helping in ICC 25 as much as if I would gear for avoidance. I did my gearing choice and decided to go off set. Specifically on festergut, the only times when I died was when I mis judged/used cooldowns properly. And it doesn't really happen too much. I just couldn't agree on going avoidance there helping healers more than going EH would. They also don't seem to regard whatever chance to live simulations is out there for tank gears. Also, they argue heavily on the benefit of avoidance (using probabilities where you have 0.2 percent of getting hit 5 times in a row (or maybe 4) over EH for these bosses. they gurantee that with the avoidance gears, a tank can't take more then 5 hits in a row due to probabilities......that's just....I am not trying disrespect thier opinion but I honestly think if healers can't keep up an EH tank on festergut, then the same tank in full avoidance would not help.
we have been downing these bosses consistently everyweek (got green dragon first time tonight) out side of LK, sindragosa, professor.
can any tanks or healers from guilds that has been doing ICC 25 (normal) give their perspective on this?
and also, few healers aren't as geared but I think they are not undergeared for current bosses (excluding LK, sindragosa, professor since we haven't attempted them in 25).
