For members of raid guilds leveling at least, I think the shortage is going to be tanks, not healers. Think about the numbers.Typical raid: 3 tanks, 7-8 healers.Now split up those 25 people and send them off to do 5 man dungeons. Assuming 1 tank and 1 healer per 5 man dungeon group, we have a numbers problem. We are 2 tanks short.When people were leveling in BC, I started out Resto Druid, and wanted to spend more time in dungeons than outside questing. I got in to groups a bit, but didn't get nearly the amount of dungeon time I had envisioned.Then I went feral.Within a couple days, although my gear was pretty bad, I got in to all the dungeons I wanted and then some. After about a week, it was so good that literally within a minute or two of logging on, several whispers came in asking me to tank different runs. I was able to pick and choose, with almost no downtime.I predict leveling in WotLK will be the same.
