Hi. I'm a bit new to tanking, however I have Offtanked quite a few Naxx runs. When I tank heroics, I usually have a hard time keeping aggro against the DPS. My general rotation is Heroic Throw/Charge > Shield Block > Thunder Clap > Shockwave > Cleave > Revenge > Devastates/Heroic Strike/Shield Slam when available. I make using Thunder Clap/Shockwave first priority when they are available. What am I doing wrong?
First off never shock wave while Shield block is up. You want the mobs to attack while you have the increased SBV.
Are you using the glyph of Vig and putting it on an aoe dper?
Also one thing i do, I will charge in, Shield slam one mob, tab target another throw a revenge/Devestate with a heroic strike, Tab and repeat that till i get to the first mob and then Re shield slam and repeat until all mobs are dead
Now that you mention tab targeting, I think that may be what I'm doing wrong. It's sometimes challenging for me because I may target mobs that I'm not in combat with. I do it occasionally, but is there a specific amount of time I should spend per mob?
You want to build starting threat on all the mobs, enough so the dps doesnt pull. If its a 4 mob pull i try to have my HS and at least one attack on the rest of the mobs by the time my SS comes off cooldown on the main burn target
