- Funny Story On Tanking
- March 30th, 2012
So I have a level 55 human warrior on a normal server that yesterday I decide to get back on and to give PVP a shot. Enjoyed it, even though the first random BG I had no idea what I was doing and was just following whoever was closest to me. ANYWAY, I decide to join a guild so I can talk to people and what have you. Join a guild, hit it off great with this one girl and she asks me if I want to do a pug. So I go "Sure!" and then it hit me: hey, I can tank, so that means no wait time! Whoopie!
We get into a pug instantly and one guy sighs and says "You're going to tank in Arms?"
See, it had been months since I played my warrior, and I had left her on my secondary spec, which is Arms. So I take a minute to switch to my primary spec, which is Prot., and midway through one trash battle as I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why almost none of the trash is coming to me, I realize that I'm still in arms and not defense. And I have a two-handed sword and left my one-handed sword and shield at my bank.
The funny part is that even though I was completely unprepared for tanking, we still managed to go through the whole dungeon without wiping. Then after the pug I tell my friend "Omg I was so unprepared uggggh" but she laughed it off. But I know the other three members of my pug must have been seething behind their computer screens, but not seething enough to have left to reroll on another pug. XD
TL:DR Comedy of errors when tanking for a pug that awesomely did not wipe. I'm sure the other team members probably wanted to strangle me, and I don't blame them.
