Keybinding

To keybind or not to keybind.

At the end of the day, the answer’s pretty simple isn’t it?

When you bind your abilities, as many of them you can to keys, it can do a lot of things for you during the course of your adventures in Azeroth.

Primarily, keybinding a giant chunk of your abilities will serve the purpose of speeding up your reaction time with said abilities and, speaking as a tank, that’s definitely not a bad thing. Even if it’s a somewhat more obscure ability, one that you never use that often, if you have it keybound and are in the habit of hitting it when the situation arises, that’s something that will play to your benefit.

“Oh shit!” Buttons

Do you know what’s a problem that I’ve seen so many tanks have?

Something unexpected will happen in a raid and they’ll drop dead. Immediately afterward, someone will always ask the question.

“Are your cooldowns still up?” And of course, the tank replies in the affirmative which means that the death and the subsequent wipe could have been avoided.

Do you know why this happens the way it does? It’s primarily because a lot of tanks out there don’t LIKE to use their cooldowns.

Yeah I said it. I’ll say it twice if it’ll get through to you guys. Most tanks, do NOT use their cooldowns properly.
