LOTRO AoE Tanking Video

I put together the following video for a couple of reasons, but mainly because I wanted to discuss how I go about not only practicing my tanking but also my strategy for tanking multiple mobs.  The other side reason was that I was curious if my ability to hold everything and heal myself would allow me to complete the instance faster then a champ.  However, after running it and remembering that there’s quite a bit of downtime in between waves, there’s really no contest as the champ will win easily.  But hey, it was still fun to try.

For me I’m pretty much always trying to pull as many mobs as possible either while soloing or in group settings so instances like this are great ways to practice.  Plus this instance not only has numerous mobs but it has fire you need to watch out for as well as lots of things to interrupt so it is a pretty stressful instance at times.

The video pretty much handles the rest of the walkthrough so check it out and let me know what you think.

    Really great video! Loved the voice-over and it was really interesting to see how a Warden handles that instance. Not quite as fast as a Deathstorm traited champ but certainly a lot more safe!

    Check out my character once the servers pop up, her name is Anawyne for my armor/jewelry. Also I do have tier 8 and tier 9 stuff on my legendaries which helps out quite a bit too.

    I believe I’m running Valour, Zeal, Innocence, Empathy, and not sure what the 5th is :)

    I’ll update this once the servers pop back up and I can get you a link and check my setup.
