Got sergeant the next day, lost it the same day cuz I was stupid enough to join a raid on Astranaar. Idiots kept killing civilians, got 7 DKs and went back to grunt
Last night tasted Molten Core for the first time ... pickup group. When we finally gave up on Lucifron, I had died 18 times. I then appreciated my gear when I noticed I was missing over 1k health
I must say ... it is awkward being an offtank. You are unsure of who you're responsible for and you don't get much love from healers. I spent a lot of time sitting on the side just waiting for a heal. This experience discourages me from doing this kind of high-end stuff.
