Tanking Thru Rage – Gelebron

Pitter patter pitter patter.

Thunder rumbled in the distant mountains. Ryan again found himself waiting, in full battle gears, and his thoughts unwarranted. People often do not understand wars, and the amount of time spent. The fighting are often done and over in hours, although wars drag for years… and years test conviction; the belief of not spreading suffering. There’s no white or black in wars, only suffering. And the years have taught Ryan well…

Some of you might be asking why is a boss raging in this day, and stage of the game? The answer is simple: it is especially at this stage of the game where either many good players have stopped logging altogether, or the games gotten so old people are playing the players instead of the game.

Yes, we all have those drama fuelled, power hungry folks wanting a civil war just for their personal enjoyment. While this question is the most pertinent, we all realise it is also the most irrelevant.

The why is not the discussion today.

Despite our sincerest efforts, raid mistakes happen and we are sometimes unable to eliminate from what is otherwise, a raid harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led us, inexorably, here.

Tanking a crazed wizard on steroids is quintessentially an effort by both the tank, and the team of vegetation loving healers.

As seen in the video above, the quintupled damage a raged chaos boss does quickly decimates any defences and health pool the tank have painstakingly accumulated. While combo lixes and goose liver plate increases the health pool and defence, it is often not enough. This is where full support druids take centerstage.

With boon, entangle and wind up constantly, the fight quickly becomes becomes controllable.

Recommended self buffs are Combo and Heroic Combo lixes, super health and defence potions, Goose Liver plate etc. The self heal from bunny is weak against the 11k autos, hence having a pure stat pet like the salveroot becomes a lot more viable.

Shield wall barely stops half an auto, but it may buy a precious 1.5 second if you pop it when health dips below 70%.

Hope this guide helps you. Happy hunting!
