"I'm sick of warriors being pushed aside when we sacrifice so much more than druid tanks and afterall we are supposed to be the best tanks in the game."Who said you were supposed to be the best tanks in the game?And why act like you aren't a hybrid too?Last I saw a Warrior not in prot spec was one of the 2 classes best suited to Arena and most of the time they do very well in PVP or even in PVE.Warriors are a great tank. You want a reason to bring a warrior instead of a bear?Spell reflect.Shield wall.Last stand.Mocking Blow.Shouts.Bear got any of those besides demoralizing shout?Bear have anyway to add HPs during a fight to deal with spike damage? No, they can heal a crappy amount at the cost of a bunch of rage slowly.Bear got multiple ways to grab aggro back? Nope, 1.Bear have a way to reduce all incoming damage to a tiny fraction of normal to give the healers a chance to catch up?Bears have a way to gain aggro on spellcasters by simply making them eat their own shots and so they avoid all that damage?Ever have a bear tank Kael in TK? Nope. Won't happen. Not even Paladins are wanted for this because the fight is just that much safer with a warrior.Until this patch bears were fighting to get threat against certain mobs. Now at least every creature can bleed. Before you could sunder armor mobs bears couldn't put their best threat generating debuff on and it was much easier to maintain threat.All this and warriors still act like they should get more stuff on a platter. Try looking at all your upgrades in most slots and wondering how you are going to make the defense required to not be hit by a crit. You forced to get PVP gear to tank?(FYI: I don't play a Druid)
