Kinda New Druid Tank Needing Help/Advise
Well Ill try to say this in the most intelligent way i possibly can. Out of sheer boredom, and winning random epic drops in heroics, i decided to dual spec my lovable boomkin, and pick up a tank offspec and gear set.
I currently have around a 4500 GS Set, (Not that i condone the GS mod, its just a referrer), my stats are something like 32k hp self buffed with GoTW in bear form, 37% dodge, and around 29k armour.
So ive been mass farming the older heroics that came out before the new ICC 5 mans, and for being a noob tank, i do pretty darn well.
Then the horrors begin,........i get queued for Heroic PoS or HoR, or the other one, cant remeber name right now.
I do my best, keeping my aggro, LoS pulling when appropriate, etc. But for some odd reason, i get CRUSHED in the newer heroics, and i mean BAD!!!! My HP drops like a ton of bricks if i have aggro over 3-4 mobs, and as we all know, its a must in like H PoS on the hill leading up to the tunnel, with the flame bringers and extra mobs.
I constantly get griped at by healers , saying, ARE YOU EVEN WEARING TANK GEAR OR ARE U A DPS GEAR WEARING NOOB TANK??????
GAH!!!!!!!!!!! I cant stand that.......
so, im looking for a reasonable explination as why a decently geared tank, IMO anyway, gets perfect runs in older heroics, and when it comes to the new ICC 5 mans, i get literally slaughtered.
Any help would be awesome, and im also up for any constructive critisism , I dont claim to be a l33t tank, like I said, im pretty new to druid tanking, but ive played DK and also Paladin tanks up thru Yogg in Ulduar.
Thanks Again and Happy Gaming
btw, char name is Kilmadore on Firetree US
