Hunters cause wipes...because they are bad people...yep. The poor Warrior is probably taking the blame for the bad Hunter. Even if there is no Hunter in the group, the Hunter did it. Dang Hunters.Warriors are only one of the five other (assuming you are PUGing a 5 man), and each of them are different. Sure, if you have a bad tank (any class tank), you are likely to fail. This can be said of healers as well (any class healer). The bottom line is that if you are playing with a group that has a key member who does not know how to play their role, you are going to have trouble. Warriors are just singled out in this, because if they are not tanking well, it’s not as if you can tell them, "No problem, just heal instead and (x class) will tank." Warriors get a raw deal on that. A Hybrid tank can always step out of the role and heal or DPS instead (spec dependant), and it will likely not affect the group as much, as long as another tanking class is also with the group.In support of the OP though, I will say that if I get into a PUG and see a Warrior running around with a two-hander or dual-wielding and claiming they will tank the boss, I will be honest with the tank and the group and let them know I cannot be a part of that PUG. If a guildie wants to play around and see if he can hold aggro (and the rest of the group is not in a dire need to blow through the instance), I will generally enjoy the fight and see what happens. As a PUG though, I have no time for certain doom. Also, I am a person who is not afraid to PUG quite a bit, so IMO I have a fair and unbiased view on the matter.
