Back in the Saddle Again...

Hmm, maybe I should name all my blogs after song titles.

Last night I was back tanking for the first time since the month of January. Ty, Eus, Stig, and Nose ran Heroic UK and Reg ToC with me, and they both went well, from my point of view.

We finished UK in about 35-40 minutes, and no one died except for Stig, who only died twice, which is a huge accomplishment for her. I remembered it being much harder, but then again I was with a skilled group and it wasn't much of a challenge. I remembered most of the instance, which I'm happy with considering I hadn't seen it in over half a year.

I didn't know anything about ToC, having just recently returned. I was pleased to find out that even the normal version dropped lvl 200 gear. The jousting was a bit annoying and unnecessary, but I understand why they put it in. The fights themselves were rather easy, and not a person died. No tank gear dropped, but a good bit of decent dps plate did, so I'm glad that Nose was able to get some gear.

The guild was going to run Naxx after that, but it was already 9:30 CST on a Sunday night, and I had to be awake at 4 to get ready and drive to work by 6. I was upset I wasn't able to at least do a wing with them, but I'm planning on making it a point to do it sometime this week. We have a trip to Oxford for an Ole Miss game, but I'm hoping to fit it in one evening this week before Saturday.

I've started to get a good feel back for my rotation, especially during UK last night. Hopefully it keeps coming back to me. Ruh, Edy, and Eus remind me that skill is much more important than gear, but I've still got some work to do to get back to the experienced, comfortable tank that I was. Looking forward to keeping it going forward.

Now I just need to remember what addons I enjoyed using and get those back installed again. And to remember how to install them...
