The final point needs more elaboration. Compared to Retail, Classic tanking WILL have you losing aggro if your DPS burst or even just donu2019t let you get some hits in first. Seen it plenty of times already. If youu2019re a Retail tank, this is something youu2019ll just have to learn to deal with. Itu2019s not your fault that people donu2019t understand how Threat works in Vanilla. When the DPS pull a dude off of you or you canu2019t have aggro up 100% of the time, itu2019s just the way tanking works in Vanilla.

Or: Get a shaman, get a two hand, use sweeping strikes > berserker stance > berserker rage > whirlwind > battle stance > thunderclap > berserker stance > cleaver

Bring a mage to frost nova so you can back up and get heals too. Just make a macro to put on a sword and board for defensive if you get low. Pretty much 1-50 is beyond forgiving in this way. I’ve yet to see 50+ in this version but I imagine it wont be much different if you know what you’re doing.

A good tip I’ve found tanking several dungeons now that might not be so well known; Sunder armor. It does no damage but generates a lot of treath. Spam one or two stacks of sunder on all targets and your life will be much simpler, even if your dps will drop off a bit 🙂

In my experience so far, strafing has not been working in classic wow. I very frequently get dazed while strafing.

Yup. “Wait for three sunders” was a thing once upon a vanilla.
