I am so jealous of raiders. I used to raid for years and it literally felt like a second job so I ended up taking 2 years off EQ. Last night I decided to take a break from the 6 box routine and went LFG with my now underused cleric, yes he lost his spot in the group to my shm. I got invited to a shadow valley (something like that) in ToL. The caveat was that there was no tank class and no pet tanking. I was skeptical but I said sure. I get there and the group was 2 rangers, 2 zerkers and a druid. I ask who will be tanking and the guy that invited me said he was. I ask how many hp he has so I can plan out my heals and he says 550k I am like damn. My pally only has 350k yes I know he is low for 116, but I don't even have any CoV gear on him yet, still struggling with ToV. Long story short, the ranger tanks the stuff for a couple of hours with 0 deaths. There were a couple of close calls, but I was overall impressed. Now I need to see what a raid tank would be like. Oh and I started out with enc crack and never dropped below 75% mana. When crack dropped i never went below 65%. When the druid and 2nd ranger left we pulled out a 120 tank merc and that thing was 50% worse than the ranger.
