my guild often uses off-tanking as a form of crowd control. you see, while our server often seems to have a shortage of tanks, my small guild (12-14 active accounts) has 2 main tanks (one paladin, one warrior), and a phenominal feral druid who is always ready and willing to switch from crazy DPS to tanking at a moment's notice (always carries both sets of gear with him)...we once did a heroic shattered halls with those three, a hunter, and myself healing. it took longer to kill things, and tested my whack-a-mole skills, but they kept those mobs under control. now, i'm not recommending trying that anytime soon, but having a second person who can tank is not a bad idea when you have no, or limited, CC.

Agree with this... one of the most fun Steamvault runs I've done was a late night run by bored /2 people:2 feral druids (mt + ot/dps), prot warrior (offtanking), aff-lock & elemental shaman healing (!).We figured it wouldn't work out, but instead it turned out to be one of the fastest runs I've ever done through SV (untill recently when burning down the place with t6 geared group in no time).Lots of people are stuck in the idea that you *need* such & such class for such & such role... but in reality, you can get through most of the instances with almost any class combination, you just need to work out how to use what you got effectively.
