My guild just did a trial run of MV this weekend and I am in a bind here. I am the raid leader as well as the main tank and from what it seems, I don't have the multi-tasking ability to #1 keep the raid in check (chains puddles etc) call taunts for the energy swaps (stone guardians) and keep up with my Sblock buff. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? More experienced/competent raiders yes but just keeping Sblock up, making sure I have >60 rage for the next one is a chore in itself. Poweraurasclassic isn't working yet (to my knowledge) is there another addon perhaps to track Sblock? Any advise/tips would be greatly appreciated
As far as addons, always be willing to branch out from curse. I use the curse client for most things but when an addon I love isn't working, be willing to google the crap out of it. Curseforge, wowinterface, etc all may have beta or even sometimes alpha versions that will get you back on track.
As far as the multitasking, be willing to delegate. That raider that talks like he's hot shit because he topped meters? Make him do it while calling the taunt swaps. He has nothing to stare at but staying out of fire and his rotation anyways. He can watch the energy while he watches the mob's hp. You'll find out who your real all-stars are when they have to take on something like this. It might be a disaster, but if it is, at least it shuts the smug mofo up.
For Total damage reduction. FOr spike protection shield block is better. Tanks really need to stop using Total damage reduction as a metric for measuring performance. what kills you is when you take a but load of hits to the face whilst bleeding. not becuase any individual hit/tick is dangerous but becuase you all of them to your face in succesion SHield balck makes it so you can ensure 60% of time you that will never happen.
