This is a great mechanism but I don't think the tanking talents will replace a real tank any time soon. Mainly there is no separate buff for sta and armor, main tank stats. The blood of the rhino is only 2% increased sta, which isn't much at all. 10%/20% would be a nice start.

Well, there are-Great Stamina: 3/3 for 4/8/12% increase in pet stamina-Natural Armor: 2/2 for 5/10% increase in pet armor-Blood of the Rhino: 2/2 for 1/2% increase in pet Stamina and 20/40% increased healing taken by the pet (also requires 3 points in Greater Stamina)-Pet Barding 2/2 for 3/6% increase in pet armor and 1/2% increase in pet chance to dodge (also requires 2 points in Natural Armor)-Grace of the Mantis: 2/2 for 2/4% dodge and hit chanceWith the BM talents that would become:+14% stamina, +10% health, +36% armor, +14% dodge and +40& healingto hold aggro there are:-Taunt*: 1/1 for taunt on a 3 minute CD (requires 2/2 Improved Growl)and-Improved Growl: 2/2 for 10/20% additional Growl threath.

While I definitely believe it won't replace a viable main tank, this can do wonders for emergency tanking situations or even as a viable off-tank.I most certainly won't see myself getting into a group because of my pet's tanking capabilities, but I definitely see good potential in giving Hunters a little more viability in instances.

Pet Offtanking is going to be the new form of Crowd Control in WotLK, most likely. Think about it: Hunters can put their pet on one spare mob while trapping another. It'll be almost as great as a Mage's sheep.
