Another note to DPS DKs:

April 3, 2010

Just because you’ve got the Runic Power to toss a Death Coil by the time the fight ends, it doesn’t mean you have to use it.

Seriously, the tank is already being kind enough to put his or her own face out there to get clawed/shot/munched on. At least have the courtesy of letting him/her pull. Bringing another pack of mobs in just as the tank is sitting at low mana (I’ve seen it happen. Once) or Rage makes it more difficult to keep the fight under control, and I don’t care if you are in T10 gear and can survive it if you switch to Frost Presence: having to peel stuff off you because you’re in such a big hurry is not how it should work.

Remember, kids: it’s easier to hold on to mobs than it is to pull them off people.

And since we’re already here, a note to DPS in general: if the healer tells the tank to chain-pull, wait until he has all the mobs on him and stopped moving before unloading. Unless they’re a Druid or a well-geared Warrior, standing still makes it a lot easier for them to generate the AoE threat needed to keep you from turning into a puddle of goo on the floor.

    nor shall hunter’s misdirect nor rouges tricks of the trade….

    The tank pulls. Period. End of story. DPS want to pull? Roll a tank.

    Love the insights!

      Pretty much that, yeah. Let the tank pull. If you’re not the tank, don’t pull. If you jump around yelling “gogogo”, you’re an idiot.

      I actually don’t mind Rogues or Hunters using their redirects to bring more mobs to the pack when we’re already fighting something. For example, when we’re going through the first part of Utgarde Keep. I’m already at that point of gear where more mobs on me end up meaning less time doing the dungeon, so they can bring as many as they like as long as they don’t pull aggro.

      What boggles me, though, is: how comes they never do that? 90% of the Rogues and Hunters I see doing us a “favor” and pulling stuff simply start wailing on the wrong mobs and expect us to pull off them?

      We might never know. Thanks for the comment!
