Mr. Tank, We Need to Talk
I love most of the tanks that I come across while running random PUGs (PickUp Groups). However, there is one thing that coonsistently bothers me. It’s the pacing of the dungeon run.
Of all of the classes with a mana regen ability, ours sucks the most. It lowers our DPS (Damage Per Second) and it takes to long to fill up from empty. It seems that other classes get some wham bam thank maam ability to get back a lot of mana quickly. The exception being hunters. Our Aspect of the Viper mana regen ability also has it’s regen speed based upon our melee weapon speed. That sucks.
Tanks, could you please take a ten second break between every other large trash pull, and just before we tackle the boss? This will allow us hunters to give the group the bet of our DPS. There is nothing more sad than a hunter stuck on auto shot due to zero or little mana.
Yes, this will all change when Cataclysm hits, but until that time, please give us a little break every now and then. We’re not mages, paladins, priest, or druids.
