You know, people always complain about tank shortages. I don't see it as much of an issue as we have too many. The thing is, we need fewer and fewer tanks as we raid more and more. Lets examine.How many tanks does a 5 man need? Obviously 1 per 5 people.How many tanks does a 10 man need? 2, 1 MT and 1 ot - still the right ratio, ok.How many tanks does a 25 man need? 2, maybe 3. See the problem? My guild has TOO MANY tanks, so we lose 25 man spots to tanking. Healers don't have this issue, so we are always looking for a few good ones. Heck, I made an entire other toon so I can raid DPS/Heals when my main (Tankadin) isn't needed. With the addition of DK tanks (who still can DPS ok with DPS gear in tank spec) and enough feral druids to go around, my poor prot pally (and our warrior tanks) have issues, because we can't do anything else. So on a given night, we just aren't needed.I agree that this might help insomuch as we have a chance to spec something else (and maybe be useful like feral druids / DK's are during a raid) but I think this is a band-aid to a fundamental design problem.
