My new warrior I was leveling to tank for my friends was just going too slow. They’ve got linked accounts and are getting triple XP, and I have no heirlooms or guild bonus to work with.  So, I jumped ahead.

I rolled a new goblin death knight named Barchetta on Wildhammer-US and jumped right into tanking instances. He’s kicking some serious butt!  It was a little shaky at first, but now that he has more aggro-generating abilities in place, he’s a pretty solid tank.  The average queue time is about 4 seconds.  He’s level 61 and climbing.

So, now I’m waiting for my buddies to catch me.  It shouldn’t take them too long, and then we can start running together.  Coda might make a comeback later, but for now, I’ll be on Barchetta.
