Feral DPS to Tank switch, help!
Hello fellow players,
i have a problem. I used to be a feral dps in my guild wich im a part of for about half a year now, i rly enjoy this place, very good atmosfeer and very good tanks.
Recently, a couple of days ago, my officer let me switch from feral dps to feral tank, cause i really want to become a tank and he thinks feral tanks are good cause of there large hp pool. So i switched.
I really thought to myself, ok i've got to study tacts, watch some tankspot/bosskillers movies and after 6-8 hours of boss study from icc i thought to myself, ok, i think im ready.
What happend was that i made some mistakes, wich is normally on a first try but it wasn't the first guild try. It was really embarrasing and i was really disappointed about myself.
Now my question(s); what's the learning curve to know your mechanics? i play feral for about 10 months and my gear is pretty good! (tanking gear also) but yet i only done about 400-500 5-man dungeons and about 20-30 10-man raids.. barely have any 25-man experience. How do i explain my guild i want to learn the bosses and learn to become a good tank and a good addition to my guild?? I really don't know what to do, maybe join a starting guild at the bottom of the food chain or maybe just go back to dps (wich i rly don't want.) anyone have some advise for me?
thanks in advance,
grtz, a beartank
