Alright, so I'm attempting to get better at reading logs. I had N Horridon drop me on the last phase after the troll died, and I'm attempting to understand what happened.
Here is the death report from WoL
In particular, I'm looking at the at 20:42:36.006 (2nd from the bottom). I died twice, the 2nd time I didn't gather my rage before grabbing him. I'm interested in the first time I died. I'm pulling up the 'more' link and the enabling power gains, casts, and buffs/debuffs.
I'm including the logs below: Keep in mind this is immediately after the troll died. I waited for my puncture stacks to drop and then taunt.
So here's my questions.
It's not clear to me that the barrier got absorbed. Is that the case? Is it possible it got absorbed from something that isn't being shown on this log? Did it get absorbed by the hit? Can someone explain what happened?
The first unblocked hits were due to me trying to get the rage necessary to pop block. I hit barrier after first taunting, and I don't recall why, but looking at the logs I consider that a mistake. Outside of that, however, do these hits look reasonable for tanking N Horridon after he enrages from the troll dying?
I see two clear mistakes that I made.
1. Not popping block *before* taunting, and
2. popping barrier instead of block (honestly not sure what I was thinking, I know better).
So I have some definite improvement there. But my third question is this: Looking over the logs, does the healing I'm receiving look reasonable?
And lastly, what can I be doing to improve my survivability here? I'm about to start stacking stam, but I don't feel like it should be necessary at my gear levels (508). Going into it all my CD's were down trying to survive the troll (disarmed him, and then rolled CD's to live), so I didn't have a lot to work with outside of block/barrier.
You can be harsh, I have a thick skin. I'm just looking to understand what's going on, so I can fix it. Because I basically just dropped straight to the floor and got to watch my DK co-tank play hero.
