I can personally attest to this, being a MT who raids Kara and going into Gruul's lately. Number one, become uncrushable. Number two, our threat generation is far better than a warrior as long as you stack +spelldmg by using caster-weapons. And because we don't need to get hit to generate rage, we can stack dodge and parry all day long, something a warrior would get into trouble doing. As far as getting mana goes, on the Prince fight, I get so much mana I can't even bring my mana bar down 10% before it's filled again. Generally mana's not a problem until you find you're overgeared like in nonheroics, and then just pop wisdom and you're fine.The Arena caster hammer has +203 spelldmg on it, add a +40 spelldmg enchant and you'll be tossing some amazing threat numbers. If you can't get that, get the Lower City rep caster-hammer, which has +159 spelldmg. As a pallytank you need at least +150 spelldmg to hold threat well. Hell, I started tanking with +30 spelldmg and even that worked pretty damn well for nonheroics starting out. Nowadays I usually roll with about 270-400 spelldmg, and if you could somehow manage to get your threat into the 500+ region (t4, t5 maybe?), the devil himself couldn't pull off you :)Bizzlewick : Black Water Raiders
