The best thing I can stress to any tank these days is to grow a pair and realize EVERYONE in group relies on you. I know this might be a hard thing to realize but this is DEFINITELY NOT a good thing for you. No need for power trips- that will get you kicked. The biggest thing tanks don't seem to realize these days is that when the group fails these days 90% of the time it is the tanks fault. It wasn't because the dps couldn't do dps, it usually isn't because the healer couldn't heal- it is most often because you got too big for your britches and pulled too big or you don't know how to tank at all. As someone with a 3 second queue time YOU have the responsibility to make the group succeed REGARDLESS of the other people in your group and only in EXTREME circumstances does that mean removing someone else from group. If your healer has weak heals then it is your responsibility to pop your cds when needed and to pull SMALLER packs. If your dps can't dps or dpses the wrong target then it is your job to be the big kahuna and DEAL with it. You soak up damage for your role- then do like your role suggests and be a stoic and shut up. If there is a problem then you are Silent Bob and let your healer speak for you.
