I find myself looking at info about resto druids in MoP and then thinking - oh, wait, no, I'm looking at the wrong thing. I'm supposed to be looking at tanking!
I think the thing that is hardest for me in tanking is not knowing when to swap agro with another tank. Or the fight mechanics. I still feel like I'm running headlong into stuff and swiping everything. Not very clever. It will only come to me with practice, but I'm still too anxious to practice. One thing I think that would help me transition better is to remove the healbot window from my screen. When I see my health going low, it's an automatic reflex to go to my name and click on it to cast a heal on it. BAD. VERY BAD. Doing that of course pops me OUT of bear form, casts a piss weak rejuvenate on myself and then I get smacked very hard by something which makes my health go even lower. Ouch.
But, I thought about level 90 arena. I'll definitely be healing there. So at least I will still have my hand in for healing as well for tanking.
I think I might just adopt Shelly of Bravetank's motto - A tank that prefers to heal. I know about Bravetank - I've visited her blog a few times. But she was on Girls gone WoW recently - brought to my attention by Zwingli who thought she had the most awesome accent. So of course, I had to go listen to her talking and yes, she does have an awesome Irish accent. LOL, all the girls from Girls gone WoW have awesome accents!
OK, so to face my fear, I am going to tank a dungeon this week when I'm online. I'm going to queue for randoms. But I'm not going to do it alone. I'll have to take someone to hold my hand. Someone I know. Preferably someone who can heal. I'm not THAT brave.
