How about you get someone to write a counterpoint, detailing the ways OTHER classes can convince a warrior to respec Prot/Feral/Etc to tank PUGs?For me, running dailies while prot specced sucks enormous loads of bad stuff. I spent a year and a half specced 8/5/48, putting on all the DPS gear I could find, and it still sucked. Now that I'm 17/44/0 or thereabouts, why should I respec daily just to tank a pug? People joke, but I'm seriously going to start a tank-for-hire guild and charge people to tank pugs, etc.Ok, now that I've gotten that off my chest, can I just say that I LONG for news about what Blizz has planned to help Tanks deal out more DPSes.

I could see why a guild would hire a warrior to tank a 25-man for them, but really, who'd pay money to run a 5-man with anything other than a paladin?

I still don't get this. My warrior has been 11/7/43 for roughly 30 days /played at 70. What's so hard about doing the dailies? I just change out my rings, necklace and pants (because I have the dps pants from H Mech) and dual wield. Then I run around spamming Devastate and Whirlwind. An hour and a half later, all my dailies are done. I suppose I could have finished them 10 minutes faster as DPS, but in a game where I have roughly six months /played spread across my toons, I don't consider 10 minutes to be all that long.

I have to agree with Milktub, here. I respecced prot about 2 months ago and never looked back. Sure, my playstyle had to change, and I had some pretty good DPS gear from BGs and whatnot, but I pretty much blow through any dailies. I mean, I'm not AOE-grinding Quel'thalas or anything, but I can handle 1-3 of the mobs that come up during daily quests.You want hard? Try tanking anything as Arms/Fury. I had no idea how much harder I was making it on myself (and my team) in those days.
