Nice guide but you're wrong about something.

Russian players will need 140% accuracy.

There is no "BASE" shield chance or absorption.
So shield chance is 32% total, not 47%.
Total for absorption is correct.
Will look into this, thanks for pointing it out.

Ah, didn't know that. We only really got a report about Putin being re-elected and there was some protests. We don't really care about much of the rest of the world to be honest :P

Thanks for the warm words all

Quick question about tanking in early Flashpoints:

How would you pull a larger, mixed group of mobs with 2 elites in them? Ranged and melee mobs. No LoS pulling.

Is DFA a good idea when it hits both golden targets? Or do you use explosive dart on one and unload on the second? Something completely different? Do you run in and Flame Burst the golden ones?

Pulling big groups is a nightmare for me up to now, and I am not new to tanking in MMOs. I really miss something to grab initial aggro on all mobs so the healer doesn't yell at me (well, he's me brother in law so he won't, but still...).

Thanks for any help.
