Prot pally needs general HALP!
First of all let me thank you all for your endless knowledge about every important aspect of WoW. Since I was here always as an observer - it halped me a lot when I was putting my first steps on Azeroth :D.
I knew that some day I will makie my first thread and it will definitely be in HALP! section.
Let me be honest with you - I always was very casual player, so my problems may sound funny to you :D. Anyway, I will greatly appreciate any halp :). So, I dinged my first lvl80 - a prot pally. All the way to it I was doing EVERY possible dungeon i could [it's shame that such great old-world dungeons are obsolete now] and it was a cakewalk. I've never had any problems with tanking, holding aggro, etc, thou I realize that 5-man content isn't very demanding. Guildless and without any perspective to raid soon [and I would love to] I slowly started to -> get def cap -> go heroics -> farm, gear, farm, gear...
I realise that having someoine who has never been on any raid in group with 9 experienced players may be frustrating, so I wanted to be as prepared as I could, geared with everything I can found best from antything except raiding. Of course I also watch Project Marmot so I can be totally prepared for everything that might happen in any encounter - everything I can do to not be a pain in someone's ass :).
Here is my armory:
Feel free to comment my gear, spec [I figured it out myself, so it's probably bad], enchants, etc. I'll be grateful for any suggestions!
So yep, today I had my first raid. A pugged one. And as you already know it went wrong and that's why I'm posting here :D. Since Lord Jaraxxus is weekly on my server I found a gropu without problem. At start I was bitched for my HP, gear, etc. No worries, I was prepared for that also :P. Tanking Gormok went easy thou I realise that most of my party members could have been greatly overgeared and Gormok isn't highly challenging event too. I taunted him when I saw the other tank had too much impale and everything was just great.
They wanted me to tank Acidmaw. Easy at start, Acidmaw health was burning down pretty fast. I got Paralytic Toxin but someone touched me with fire debuff and it was ok. When I got toxin again I notified everyone about it. Yet no response and debuff was stacking, so I carefully tried to stepback and touch the other tank, cuz it seemed that he was the only one with fire debuff but since he had to kite Dreadscale I finished with being immobilize for a minute or so. Party died -> I'm and idiot -> I got kicked. I'm not angry because I know that wipe on something that is trivial to you caused by someone new may be irritating, so I wanted to ask what was the reason for kicking me and what I did wrong in a polite way, but unfortunately I only found about my mom doing varoius things. So i'm asking you for advices :).
Thanks in advance!
