After healing a heroic Nexus run today I realized something: my sword looked really cool. This was bad. Why? Because the coolest sword I have is Red Sword of Courage. Then I noticed I was still wearing the hunter hat from Ragnaros. Between those two slots I was missing about a third of my spell power and a couple percent crit.
I figured that was post-worthy level of failure. I might as well get out as much as I can.
I often tank heroics while crittable, just so I can wear the previously mentioned hat.
Before I got my unarmed skill up, I often tanked them without a weapon.
I don't know the 6-9 rotation.
I don't remember to use on-use trinkets, so I will avoid them if I can, taking other items with inferior stats. This is best seen on my DK who uses the 'caster' trinket because the melee one has lower crit but a decent on-use, which I would never use. This is also why my priest took the wand instead of the trinket.
My DPS cloak has the parachute tinker instead of a useful enchant.
I have a troll shaman, made back when tauren were the ideal.
I have a troll hunter, rather than an orc.
And my warrior, is again, a troll, rather than tauren or orc.
I am still using the HoJ and SoC glyphs, even though I am rarely ret and only slightly more often in PvP.
I carry a Crimson Felt Hat at all times and sometimes tank with it on.
While fighting a druid in TB, he jumped off the edge. To finish him off, I followed and used DS to survive. But I use a DS macro that toggles, so mashing it just turns it off. There went 10% durability and a little bit more dignity.
My guild has declared me Admiral of the Fail Fleet. To go with the title, I am a Bloodsail Admiral and have been unable to safely go near goblin towns for over a year and a half. Oh yes, I destroyed my rep with the faction that controls three towns, filled with quests, for a hat with a parrot inside.
Try to top that.
