    Default Re: Riftstalker holding AE aggro issue

    I've been tanking more recently, doing raid rifts and a couple of T2s.

    In a T2 macroing your aoe works but I wouldnt suggest it otherwise. It's not causing an issue with single target threat, but there are times where I wish it didn't fire and it does and vice versa. It's also a gcd where you aren't building a combo point.

    Going to experiement with making 2 macros... one for aoe threat and one for single target.

    Also one thing that hasn't been mentioned. Get the crustacean talisman (sp?) or whatever it's called. On a hit procs reduced ap on mobs. Easily the best trinket in game for threat.

    I attempted to tank my first T2 tonight (RD). It was a relatively mitigated disaster, we cycled through 3 healers (all chloro) to varying degrees of success. Ultimately my inexperience caused me to step aside and allow a different RS to tank Eliam (he did face plant twice, wasn't turning from the fear and that seemed to be the difference).

    The healers kept saying I was taking a lot of damage, even burning CDs. Atrophinius was hitting for 1456 with GS, RG, and PB up fully. I dealt with the healer hiding by teleporting to Atrophinius right after the LoS, the buffer was enough.

    My un-buffed mitigation is 44%, Toughness is 103 (cap), HP is 9200 self buffed. I have T1 blue/purple drops + T2 belt. The only real boon is Liontamer (manticore gun, BiS for non-raiders).

    I'm thinking my armor was too low. Also my HP is likely low, which I can improve a good deal by farming essences.

    What I'm looking for here is a mitigation and/or health target, or any specific pieces of T1 gear that are "baller" and will close this gap. If the answer is farm for another piece of T2 plaque gear or two, then I'll cope. Just seems a little excessive to run 30ish zones for one piece.
    Admit it. You only came back to Atlanta for the hat.

    9.2k self-buffed is fine for starting T2s, all you really need is to be over the toughness cap. I'm almost fully T2 geared and i'm only 10k self-buffed as BD.

    What spec are you using? You didn't mention FB so i'm assuming bard, in which case you really should switch to BD.

    Don't buy T1 gear, and I wouldn't even bother running T1s at all. Gearing up is slow enough already as it is without you delaying it further, I moved to T2 the second I got over 100 toughness. Use the BiS guide in the sticky to plan which pieces of T2 gear you need to buy. I've only bought two, and might not buy anymore. I have gear already that's equal to or better than the tier stuff just from spamming T2s.

    we cycled through 3 healers (all chloro)
    This could also be an issue as Chloro got nerfed in the patch two days ago.. and they're probably all still sorting out what they can and can't do.

    Depends on the chloros but yeah, many of them are sucking ass right now as they re work their rotations and get down what works best in each situation with their new specs.

    I'd also drop ranger if you have that in your build. Just over 9k hps is low for a rogue tank, which means you're prob Rift/Rng/BD. That's the best raiding spec, but I think for T2s Rift/BD/Bard is best. The loss of hps from ranger hurts a lot when you're still gearing up. Once you're geared, you can lose the hps for 4% mitigation or whatever it is.... but before then I wouldn't suggest it.

    Soul Tree Calculator: Riftstalker (51) / Bladedancer (8) / Bard (7) :: Rift :: ZAM

    I'd suggest something like that. Anthem of glory is only useless when you have an archon, which you usually don't unless you're in a raid.

    Has anyone noticed an issue with planar attraction? There's been lots of times where I'll blow the cooldown and it seems to do nothing. I don't know if I'm using it incorrectly or what.
