Things that make you go hmmmmm.

Smythy posted an interesting comment on my first Northrend tanking experience.

In case you can’t be arsed reading it he says

“If you have a very sensible (or spiteful) healer, see they?ll let any over-agroing DPS?er drop dead, clinic because that way the mob will usually just wander back over to the tank afterwards.”

I mostly heal in raids or with the other Munquis so letting players die intentionally isn’t an option, but yeah, once in a blue moon I pug. And yeah, when I do I often see DPS pulling aggro. It never occurred to me before that letting them die was a sensible option, I’d always thought it was something you did when you were feeling particularly narked.

But maybe letting them die really is the only way they’ll learn. And as Smy says, it will probably only make the trash take longer and not actually cause a wipe.
