Well for me, I am geared in all blues with the best gems and enchants that money can buy. I am actually past the 490 def requirement for kara. I have threat meters and all the do-dads that every pug has ever called me "noob" for not having. I have attempted heroics and kara and never make it past the second or third pull.Basically what happens is, I get a tell saying this group needs a tank for Heroic whatever or an invite to off-tank kara. (Which for one reason or anouther, I am still yet to even open the gates to kara as the stupied group always fails.) Anyway, I say yes and always inform the party that I am new too heroics and lack the experiance, I am always given a plethoria of great tanking advice from the mages and priests. I then re-enforce the reason for my joining is to get the experiance of the instances and that if they want a seroius run to find anouther tank. Oddly enough, I am always told that every wants to help me as tanks are in such demand on my server. Oddly enough, by the second or third pull I am told that I can't tank. Now, this really irritates the heck outta me as for any non heroic such as SH or whatever im asked to come and relieve the tank who doesnt know what he or she is doing.What I see is happening is that people forget that WoW is just a game and take it way to damn seroius. I would love to "LEARN" to be a tank, if giving the chance. I am sure the first tanks going into kara and heroics wernt that great either.I also give up on joining those so called "Freindly-helpful" guilds tha do daily runs for fun.

i guess you are a warrior.read this http://elitistjerks.com/f31/t18771-protection_warrior_guide/basically.If you are getting beaten to death work on your stam/avoidanceif your friends are getting beaten to death work on your threat generation/taunting.working on increasing your threat generation is tricky as a warrior learning make sure you mark (it's helpful easily identifying what you are tab devastating and whacking).Just be patient it takes a bit of practice.If you a fustrated with warrior 5 man tanking and still want to tank. reroll a paladin / death knight they are and will most likely be much easier.if all else fails blame the dps for pulling stuff outta ur agro range.
