I’ve been back from vacation for a week and finally had time to research. This guide is a little bit of an experiment. It’s far simpler than normal — no links or colors — just cleaned up notes. It took a lot less time for me to put together, and it didn’t make sense to spend a lot of time on a fancier guide nearly 3 weeks after the raid released.
I’ll be on vacation in France and Spain when the raid comes out, very far from my computer and very busy, so unfortunately this tier’s tanking guide will likely be simple and late.

Battle of Dazaralor now has information about mythic encounters for everyone except Jaina! (coming once my guild starts on her).
Crucible of Storms normal and heroic has been cleaned up (I got some colors wrong) (and no one uses the trident).
Very last minute, but it’s been a very busy spring for me. 🌺🐇🌿🐙😱
As usual, I’ll be updating over the next few weeks (and months for mythic) as I experience these fights myself.
We did something extra special for our 100th episode — a live show! Arielle and I streamed on Twitch with webcams and everything.
The stream is up on Twitch if you want to watch. We will also be uploading the mp3 to the normal places.Watch Tankcast Episode 100! from SunnierBear on www.twitch.tv
All normal and heroic bosses have been updated with my experiences from live. All mythic bosses have notes on them now, and I’ll clean those notes up as I experience those bosses on live.
They’ve been ready for a while now, but perhaps we could all use a little reminder now that the expansion is here.
I tried a few new things for these, like adding tank-relevant details for trash, even where to skip some (at least in heroic and mythic, skipping is pointless in normal when you need exp). I also tried to add directions on how to navigate some of the more confusing dungeons. Hopefully it’s useful!
As for me, I’m sitting on the beach in Maui on my honeymoon (this is the reason why I finished this guide a few weeks ago, I wanted it to be done before the chaos of a wedding really hit). I’ll be leveling on my laptop, though hopefully I’ll still be able to run dungeons with friends who are forgiving of my latency and limited computer resources.
I’ve updated my pages to reflect what WeakAuras I have working for Vengeance and Brewmaster. Vengeance is a little bit further along, since I’ve been bringing that to our latest raids, and I plan on doing a little refactoring of the Brewmaster ones in the near future. But I figured people would like to see something working at least!
The time has come to make a decision! I will be starting out maining…
I’ll still be playing my brewmaster and protection warrior, but someone needs to get leveled first and be the priority, and that’s going to be my demon hunter.
So how’d I make this decision? Well, I wrote earlier about how I needed to try a new main. I love my brewmaster, but besides briefly pushing her aside for early Legion, she’s been my main since 2012. If I want to keep playing this game with my friends (and I do), I needed to try something new.
