The other day I was tanking a Heroic Trial of the Champion, with 4 other members of my guild. The group came together quickly; I said I wanted to tank, and then the Mrs. joined on her priest. Then another priest joined, and another, and then one more. They all had shadow as either their primary or dual spec, and we got to thinking, maybe, just maybe Vampiric Embrace x 4 might just be enough healing to keep a Paladin tank using Seal / Judgement of Light up.
There was a time or two when someone had to drop form to heal me, but surprisingly, it worked, and we made it all the way through. It was one of those, this plan is crazy it couldn’t possibly work moments.
