Undergeared but experienced
I transferred my DK from Horde to alliance this week, I forgot how undergeared she was. Ilvl 383 but the Tank set was pretty good but for the Trinkets. I purchased a JP cloak (397) and I was good to go. Fortunately my Raid Leader is flexible and didn’t mind me off tanking so in I went to Heroic Dragonsoul having never stepped into anything past LFR on it.
The crazy thing is I didn’t have a problem. I died when Morchok was around 3% Health but by the time his twin made it to the other side, Morchok was a Corpse. Looky Looky Indomitable Pride drops yay, the other DK tank already had it.
I went DPS for the next 3 fights. This is where I was carried. My DPS gear really sux, but I was able to pull 25k DPS which I thought was ok considering. We 1 shotted all three.
We had a few wipes on Ultraxion, 1 because I didn’t have DBM setup correctly on this toon and was missing the Fading Light taunts…..my bad.
The Loot Ship was a cakewalk, again I off tanked. We had a few wipes on Spine, but eventually got through with me dying to blood damage on the last platform, but in the Corruption phase, so DPS took that out.
Back to DPS for Madness, again a cakewalk, Blizz finally fixed the adds on the last platform so it was sweet. Souldrinker for me, woohoo.
I think a lot of my survival had to do with the excellent healz our group has, but even so as an undergeared Tank, knowing when to blow cooldowns, helps a shitload.
