Who Needs a Tank, Anyway?

My girlfriend and I were commiserating on how we can never find a tank when we want to gear up. For her, it's her main, for me it's my numerous alts. So, I've decided to tame a tank pet. I know I probably will never tank an instance with it, but perhaps it'll help tank, or run some group quests (she's a healer, so it'll be a cinch!). Carlotta would like to introduce you all to Spice.

Sorry, after all the fun of today, we didn't feel like editing out the list. Spice is the rare spawn in Silithus. I thought Grubthor was a horrible name, and since I think of the movie Dune when I see him, his name is now Spice. Tomorrow, I will be putting him out for a test run.

If any of you have any tips for tanking with a pet, please leave us a note, or drop us an email!

First tip: Let him thunderstomp once or twice before going to town with the AoE.

Second, Mend pet up at all times.

Third, talenting properly makes all the difference.

Lastly, have fun with it! Tanking with your pet is a huge rush! I tanked Vanndar Stormpike with Jormungandr!

Thanks for the tips :) I can use them. Carlotta is my farmer, normally, and leveled up with a cat, so is unfamiliar with aoe tanking pets.

Understandable, seeing as they ARE brand new to the class still.

Another thing is to Misdirect when you send him in, for some extra aggro.
