I’ve read so many blog posts and heard so many stories from my partner in crime about fail DK tanks in the Hellfire dungeons that I was well prepared for things to be horrible in LFD once I hit Outlands. I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
My very first Hellfire Ramparts on Vivacious was with my best friend’s Shaman and three DKs. Seeing three DKs in a group was enough to make me cringe. The run went very smoothly. I’ve since run with a few Paladin tanks through the same dungeon, and found more struggle there. I’ve found the Paladins less conscious of over-pulling.
From level 52 up I had stopped using the LFD. A few horribad BRD pugs left the worst possible taste in my mouth, so I decided to wait until Outlands. I was a little worried about jumping back into healing after such a long break, but I was pleased to find that I am still a kick ass healer.
Most tanks I run with make it a point to tell me so. Flattery will get you everywhere!
