Just to add to this, it's important to see if you're cut out to lead before you take on that mantle in addition to tanking. It's good if you understand kill order and marking for a myriad of reasons, but if you wear your emotions on your sleeves, the best thing to do is leave the mic muted and let the raid leader handle it.Just because you're the tank doesn't automatically make you the leader, it just puts you in a position to excel at leading certain *elements* of a raid. Tanking can be an awkward vantage point to lead larger raids, but is the ideal vantage point to see certain elements to paint the picture for the raid leader, and definitely the best way to 'pace' a run.I've raid lead as the main tank and as a shadow priest, and there's no comparison. Leading is vastly easier on the spriest, but pacing the run is easier on the warrior.Good read.
