tanking lei shi (3rd terrace boss)--is this part just an issue of gear?

#1OgreBattle019Posted 12/31/2012 12:42:41 AM
we're tanking it on normal. i had a fine time with elite mode 1st boss as well as tsulong. no wipes.

we wiped over and over again on lei shi and i think it's because i'm undergeared.

when lei shi protects him/herself (???) in the bubble and spawns adds, the other tank (a monk) groups all the adds together (he says because he is better geared, he takes the add position) and they dps it while i tank lei shi

problem is i keep dying when lei shi is spraying me up to 17 stacks. i take ludicrous amoutns of damage even with cs like a full rage shield barrier, shield wall, enraged regeneration, demoralizing shout/banner, pulling out all the stops...and i still end up dying half the time

we got the boss so low, too, like 20%, but after a while the healers just couldnt keep up with lei shi's sprays on me. i tried saying "maybe i should tank the adds, i can mocking banner, pop cds, take a few sprays then you can take the rest--lei shi spraying does more damage than just the adds after a certain amount of stacks" but the monk wouldn't have any of it

The problem is that you are getting up to 17 stacks



gotta perform a switcheroo before you get that high, you'll probably have to switch while adds are still up

tank REFUSES to switch during boss no matter how much i yell "im ****ing dying if you dont switch"
he keeps forcing the raid into using brez's, lay on hands, etc...even though its not enough
we were switching at 9 stacks when there's no adds

Sounds like a "your other tank is ****" problem rather than gear

boss is tauntable when with his shield up. Other tank has to pick up boss, you pick up some adds. Or pop shield wall/multiple minor CDs

This. Explain to the other tank that he's wrong and he should feel bad.

I wouldn't like to play with your brewmaster monk.

Luckily I have been in a competent guild for a really long time I forgot how it feels like to play with people that plain suck.

Tell the other tank to try tanking the boss during that phase. See how well that works out for him.

If you killed the Empress to get into Terrace, you should not have this much trouble with a simple tankswap mechanic.
We wiped more on the trash before Lei Shi than the actual boss herself when we were progressing (the two should probably swap places on normal, the trash is "harder" in that it's physically possible to wipe).

Make the other tank stop being bad, and get him to taunt when his stacks fall off. Show him this thread I suppose, we're pretty unanimous on it.
