Another progression update.
I was fortunate enough to get to run Heroic Naxx last night and we downed the entire Arachnid Quarter and the first boss of the Plague Quarter.
To the feral whiners that seem to think we don't have a place in raids (I know this isn't most of you), I DPSed on the first boss and was getting around top 10ish DPS (While specced and glyphed for tanking). On the 2nd I was helping off tank and ended up saving a wipe when we had people DC and the MT died (Maul glyph FTW) by picking up the boss and continuing to hold my add. On the 3rd boss I was DPS but again picked up the boss when the MT DCed.
I am starting to think there is something to this tanking in DPS leather btw... I am going to lay out a plan to gear myself in the best possible pieces for both tanking and DPS... essentially a mix between the 2 instead of trying to min/max my DPS kitty set. Being able to pick up MT duties mid fight in exchange for a couple spots on the Epeen meter seems like a worthy goal.
On the 1st boss of the Plague Quarter I helped OT and we 1 shot him.
All in all Heroic Naxx is not that much more difficult than 10 man, you just need 25 people to not screw up instead of 10... fortunately I am in a guild with some really good players and the handful that had never even stepped foot in Naxx did an excellent job learning the fights quickly.
