A few members of my guild have the Badge itch. So, what better way to grind through Badges than to run Karazhan?

“Oh Wulf?”

“Yes?”

“You’re going to tank for us, right?”

“Do’h.”

Okay now I’m tanking Kara and I’m a little nervous. I’ve tanked other instances before, even a few heroics, but I have that feeling like I’ve just been called up from the minors to play in the big leagues. The nice thing is that I’m with my guild and they know I haven’t tanked Kara before. So if I was to make any mistake they would be very forgiving (unlike a PuG who would probably want my hide).

The 10 of us get into Kara, buff up and wow… I have 18k health in bearform!! Nice!!

First pull in Kara, I find that I’m fighting for aggro with a hunter’s pet. Boy, that’s annoying – lol. Over Vent I ask our hunter to turn off growl (now I even sound like a tank), he apologizes and quickly turns it off. Now I can do my job – rar!

Our run was short, but we were able to 1 shot Attumen, Moroes and Maiden. Most importantly no wipes. All in all, tanking Kara wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. I had a great group behind me, wonderful healers and a good teacher who showed me which mobs needed to be marked. Now that I have the confidence to tank Kara I look forward to do it again. Or at least show the ropes to another tank so he can take over when I want to run Kara with Wulf.
