There is a lot involved at least for 2 of the hybrids that are designed with tanking in their realm of possibilities. The biggest thing you need to know is your place in tanking; are you MTing a 5 man? Are you ready to OT a bad pull in MC? Being prepared for a situation is important because it allows you to know what combination of skills you need to use to do your job effectively. Another thing people don't know is that, all tanks offer differnt abilities to the mix of their tanking. Druids can weaken armor, and minimize their damage while still doing damage to the enemy, in this way they have some similar methods of agro management but they can stack some DoTs during the pull to maintain agro. Paladins are even greater, because we are all about doing damage, straight unmitigated damage. We are ment to play every single ability that can offer holy damage down, and what is even better unlike Warriors we are designed around actually being pummelled, +Def increases dodge and the less we get hit the less we deal in holy.Warriors are just designed around offering a debuff that offers high agro (sunder) for their agro management. Now I'm saving my Warrior for the expansion so I won't say I know everything about them, but from my understanding that is the slight jist of it.Oh but to define a good tank is simple, any class that is capable of tanking that understands and communicates their abilities and how the group should manage them for the tank to effectively protect the group.
