More Rep Grind

There really wasn't much going on last night in Heroes. Two of our healers were doing Arenas last night, leaving very few healers for instance groups.

I did my dailies, then jumped on Rabbitslayer (my Warrior alt) for a bit. He's level 30 now. My plan for Rabbit is to get him to the mid 60s before the next expansion pack. That way I can decide if I'll level my Warrior or my Paladin to 80. That decision will be made by Blizzard more than me. Will they have come through on their promise to make Paladins truly competitive tanks with Warriors and Druids? I truly hope they do and I believe they will. But I'm making sure I have an insurance poilicy if they don't.

Paladins are about where Druids were before they got buffed. Sure, you might use them on Jindo, but basically it was a Warrior's world. Now with Paladins, sure you might use one on Morogrim or Al'ar for add tanking, but its still a Warrior's world.

Can you imagine what someone who is as passionate about tanking as I am could do with a Warrior's toolset?

I did manage to actually run something last night. After failing to get a group for Heroic Mech, we ended up running regular, mostly because I was running out of time, but I knew I could run that fast and Heroic would take a while. We were also trying to get Rhubarb some more gear. There are some nice drops in there (a mace, a ring, D3 helm) for him.

It was me (Prot Paladin), Wichita (Elemental Shaman), Rhubarb (Holy Paladin), a PuG Mage and a Luxzor (Holy/Disc Priest).

We absolutely destroyed the place. We are simply overgeared for Normals. Its like running a level 60 dungeon when you are level 67, there's just no way you are going to wipe.

I got a bit more Sha'tar rep, but no drops again for Rhubarb. I really feel for the guy. He's trying to help out with our healer crunch but the instances just won't be kind for him.
