I can clear to falric of sheer Willpower and cooldowns my healers jsut cant keep me up cause DPS doesn't know what focus fire or LoS mean. I am simply running normal for my shield i need nothing from heroic now
I'm finding a lot of the lower geared people are gearing a alts; seems there's an alt explosion in the lead up to Cat - I know I'm leveling some alts before Cat drops. This is actually nice, they know the dungeons, but sometimes don't know their limitations.
But for all the horror stories, I had a great group for H DTK the other day. Everyone was above 5600 gs, we skipped two bosses, pulled entire rooms and finished in about 10 mins. Everyone know what they were doing and everyone was on the same page - letting me get aggro on all the mobs then burning them. It was really nice for a change.
Tiny is right. The cleanest HOR clear is one when the DPS works with the tank, not against him. It seems like alot of DPS see all these red names and just go nuts, trying to attack anything they can. A good tank will take the wellbeing of the other 4 people as his personal responsability and this causes things to be spread far too thin.
Next time you go into that hellhole, make it very clear that there is a kill order, and any deviation will result in that players death.
I was also in a wicked fast DTK on my ele shaman not too long ago, we pounded through it super fast. I didn't even have time to cast spells on some packs. it was amazing.
