O hai. I'm ur noobtank. I'm here to wipe your group.

I just started playing World of Warcraft again after two years. In short: I'm a total noob again and I'm starting to tank heroic dungeons and it is... messy. Noxxic seems pretty good for basic gear/stat information, and the in-game Dungeon Guides are nice, but they're really terrible for reading on the fly and don't actually include popular strategies. Is there a good place where I can learn how to tank Cataclysm Heroics or am I fated to drag poor strangers along on my very painful learning curve? I don't love sifting through dozens of YouTube videos, but videos would be helpful.

Advice on WoW files not copying into external drive?

I plan to return to playing World of Warcraft. However, I need to keep the game on an external hard disk, or at least temporarily transfer it from the computer's drive to that disk frequently. When I played before, the files (install files or the installed game) would not copy to the external drive, although I have never had any such problems with a non-WoW file. I am thinking of getting an install CD for the game, so that instead of transferring from the computer to the external drive, I can just erase and reinstall. Problem is, I would need to reinstall all patches each time I did that. Does anyone have any ideas about why the external disk doesn't like WoW or how I can get around this?

Your sound card works perfectly. Just not the network card.

1990sGamingFilter: I'm trying to set up some LAN gaming with some old IPX-dependent games (primarily WarCraft II: TOD). I've installed the IPX protocol under my network connection, but the game still can't find the network. I'm using a D-Link DI-524 wireless router, which I suspect does not support IPX natively. Is there an emulator or something I can use?
