"Is this a sign that we can expect Rogues to be fighting with Paladins, Druids, and Death Knights for tanking spots come WoTLK?"It looks to me like they're going to remove the ability to become passively crush immune (and therefore, physically immune) in WotLK. Take for example the buff all mobs in Sunwell has:http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=45769"The warm radiance of the Sunwell empowers the target, increasing its chance to hit increased by 5% and reducing the enemies' chance to dodge by 20%."It was most likely put in to prevent becoming passively immune. But when the gear reset comes, Blizzard can prevent it from the start. If so, no more rogue tanks. Unfortunately, since "outside-the-box"-solutions are always fun.Congratulations to her anyway! Now we just need to get a Priest to tank something....

Actually, they're probably going to remove crushing blows completely in WotLK, or tone them down. They've said several times that they're unhappy with the randomness of them and that they don't add much to boss fights but frustration. Sunwell Radiance is there because itemization got out of control.

Yeah, you're right, I forgot that Sunwell mobs don't crush at all. And yeah, rogue becoming physically immune goes into the category "itemization got out of control".I'd still like to see a priest tank, though.
