What is your preferred raiding spec? Please describe your Talent Point choices in detail. What glyphs do you use and why?
Feral Bear. Talents choices are pretty much standard bear talents and glyphs. 2 points in infected wounds due to attack speed debuff and slow instead of 2 points in feral aggression for the 3 stacks of Faerie fire.
Glyphs: Berserk, Lacerate, Mangle for increased damage and threat, Maul for cleave, Rebirth for 100% rez, frenzied regen I switch out depending if extra healing is needed or survival.
Please describe your rotation/priority list in detail. Tanks: What is your rotation for maximum threat? When do you consider using your cool downs? Healers: What abilities do you use when you're tank healing? Raid healing? When do you use your cool downs?
mangle off cooldown and use berserk procs, lacerate x3, demo roar if other tank doesn't have it debuffed, pulverize, maul for rage dump and/or additional targets. Cooldowns when they are necessary, healers are out of range or when I know big damage is coming.
What are your primary professions? Are they maxed? Why did you choose these professions?
Maxed Alchemy and Jewelcrafting. I choose Alchemy because of the additional bonus's and jewelcrafting for additional gem bonuses.
Do you have Ventrilo?
