WoW Paladin Tank Add-ons

Lagom – Paladin Tank

It’s short and sweet, but here are the three add-ons I use for Tanking:

  • First my favorite is the best marking add-on ever! Quickmarks
  • Next everyone’s raiding favorite (I think), Omen
  • And finally Deadly Boss Mods, although honestly I haven’t been to happy with DBM since Wrath.

That’s all folks! Those are the only add-ons I use for tanking, and I still manage to do my job. Stats and gear I pretty much figure out on my own by using them and looking at the numbers while playing to see what I prefer — and because I Keep All My Gear!

Other Add-Ons that I use for the game (not tanking specific) that I like are:

  • WIM (WoW Instant Messenger)
  • Cartographer (New game map with extra features)

Omen and the Lunar Festival

TGAPGeorge – Warrior Tank

So it was late Thursday night and my Warlock friend Jerexyrd and I were wondering what to do. We were already maxed out on professions and secondary professions — at least as much as we could do that night. We’d already done our dailies. We couldn’t find a healer.

Then we got the idea to do some of the easy Lunar Festival achievements like Frenzied Firecracker and The Rocket’s Red Glare. These motivated us to port to Moonglade for Lunar Festival Finery.

Then we realized that we were eligable and in the right place to get Elune’s Blessing. Kill Omen, a two-headed devil dog? No problem! We had a basic idea of what to do, but when our five fireworks produced nothing, I got onto WowHead to see what we needed to do while Jerexyrd went back for more cluster bombs. As we discovered, it was really good that we didn’t have enough fireworks to summon Omen.

omen-shotWhile reading the comments for the achievement, I discovered that Omen wasn’t just some 80 elite pushover. No, he was a “skull-level” elite boss that would have munched on us but good. We had to get some help.
