The problem I see with having all trees viable for tanking is that non tanks might complain about the DK.non-tank:"Hey you are a DK you can tank"DK:"But I do not like tanking"non-tank:"Then why did you roll a tank class"

Uh, we already have that problem with feral druids.. and its not even non-tanks that get annoyed at them. I play a paladin, I've played all specs at 70, I'm decently geared and actually try to pug stuff, though it usually ends badly..I've had 5mans where I'm holy where a feral druid who I know has the gear to tank the instance decides they'd rather dps and make the group spend an extra 30 minutes dicking around waiting for a tank. Then there are the 25mans where I'm prot but we need someone to offtank on trash, but the feral druid wants to dps. So we all get to wipe because I got stunned and there was just a little too much on me and I die and stuff gets lose and we wipe and then the whole raid falls apart because no one wants to be in a pug raid that wipes on trash.and for what? Because the one class that can switch between simple tanking roles and dps without spending upwards of 100g doesn't FEEL like tanking?Personally, I'd kill for that ability, and to me.. anyone that might complain when DKs and feral druids are not pulling their weight.. If you ask me its completely justified. When there is another tank available its fine if you want to DPS, but when it comes down to deciding between making the group pick up one of 10 dps and just going or waiting anywhere from 10 to 60 minutes to find another tank.. If you've got the gear, and its not hard to get it, just tank the damn thing.

I can completely understand. I guess I am a little lucky in that I have a paladin, warrior and priest to choose from depending on what I feel like doing haha
