Ok, I expect to get flamed on, but I'm cool with it. Lately I am bored with dailies, dungeons, raids, etc., and have been experimenting with tanking. I am basing it off my pvp gear and gemming and enchanting with tank specs, and I have tank rings, trinkets, etc.
Now I'm not asking for advice, or criticism, for this is just me being really bored. I obviously have no expectations of being successful, but I'm just curious how far I can push this.
Has anyone ever tried this? I already know the responses some of you will leave, so this post is for the wierd few like me that get bored and try off the wall stuff. Or am I the only one?
yes it's a stupid idea but you might be surprised that the reason you'll get flamed is because you didn't read the
read before posting even applies to stupid ideas you get when you're bored on the warlock forum ^_^

Lock tanking is fun and chalenging. Toc trinket is great! I personaly tanked toc normal multiple times, and varius other bosses at many hcs. My advice is not to use all the cds at once and have a hunter at the party for the initial threat :D
Like I stated, I know it's stupid, but people just get all serious about to much. I think it's fun in a ridiculus way. It gets to be to much having to post achievements, dps, gear scores, and all that. So I think it's fun. I didn't read the sticky because I didn't think someone would actually waste their time writing all that info about that, so my bad. Writing a guide to it is probably more ridiculus then me.
So again, I will ask, knowing it's a dumb idea, has anyone tried this? Obviously you havent askawa judging by you reply, so your not ridiculus, but hopefully someone out their has. I just want a story, experience, anything. If nobody has, then this topic will fade and we can go back to all this serious buisness.
Thank you orloxgr. I didn't expect and lich king dungeons, so much respect. I was trying outland stuff. Maybe their is hope, lol.
is a smiley not enough to show that my chiding is done in jest? *rolls eyes*
also, surely that sticky thread answers your question... no? maybe
also, also, yes blightman wrote that sticky for shiggles but because he approaches even silly topics seriously people actually reported it for sticky so he was forced to clean it up and do it properly.
Actually the sticky did give me some good ideas. Since I'm not a huge pvp'r, I will continue my quest to get more relentless pieces. If I could tank a WoTLK dungeon I will consider my ridiculusness (i think thats a word) a success.
it's a shame we just missed them but the brewfest and hallowe'en bosses are both perfect for warlocks to test their tanking.
get lots of stamina and the right build and start small.
I did practice on the hallowwen boss, thats where I starting getting the idea. But the only was I could survive was to use meta, and thats not gonna work do to cooldowns. I'm curious how much stamina I could get. A 30k squishy? Doubtful, but as long as I stay bored with other game content, I will try.
You can tank instances up to lvl 70 just not the big instances. Just go through your rotation and if you start loosing threat (which you probably won't but it is possible) then spam searing pain for a bit ^_^. It still sucks though but if someone needs help i'll do it and help em out. Oh yeah and you might need a good healer too.
Oh and your pet dies quite a bit from soul link if theres a few big crits but fel synergy should be able to keep it up normally.
30k would likely be a minimum and not so hard to reach. the 170 stam trinkets from brewfest will be a good start.
you would take enough pvp gear to be crit capped from resilience and the stam. the problem is that you
take every hit since you can't dodge while casting. the aim is to reduce the hits enough to take them while increasing stam enough to allow healers to keep you up.
the problem with all of this is that getting the defensive stats you need precludes things like the hit cap and enough SP to get enough threat.
