Those who use Divine Storm and Bladestorm are probably capable of tanking any non-ICC 5 man pretty easily though...

If they are capable of tanking it and want to tank, they should have signed up as a tank, and unchecked DPS.The person who is designated tank because he signed up as a tank is the one the healer expects to heal. If someone isn't designated the tank, I assume they're not tanking.They shouldn't try to while someone else is doing it already and it's working. That's just confusing , rude, and makes the instance more difficult.

...and no one cares that you can tank the non ICC 5 man.What most people care about is a nice proper run where everyone plays the roll of their class properly.If all of these mightier than thou, pull before the tank, non-tank tanks would just roll a tank and play a tank, LFG queues for everyone would be instant.

I actually healed a Ret-Tank earlier today. As in, he was specced Retribution, signed up to tank, but was also wearing tank gear besides his weapon.* It was an interesting run, since I had to heal more than I usually have to for that instance, but he knew what to do. Only wiped once, and that was because I accidentally fell off a cliff.*His weapon was also the Bone Arbiter axe, which also made me feel good about his skills/gear level.

I'm tempted to try tanking with my Prot/ret spec (PVP spec) for shits and giggles.If you see a Ret Paladin not wait at least 1.5 seconds before using Divine Storm (immediately after a pull) then they're not using the priority system right. Whilst it is true that Ret Paladins have no set rotation (FCFS) we DO have a priority system.Judgement should always be the first attack used when a pull has been initiation (HoW only priorities over Judgement when the mob is below 20% HP). If somebody is using Divine Storm, even in an AoE situation, then they're DOING IT WRONG.I know this is for tanks but I'll put this here for all you Ret Paladins to see. If you use Divine Storm as your first move when I'm tanking I will punt you out of the dungeon verbally.HoW > Judgement > CS > DS > Consecrate > Exorcism > Holy Wrath > Divine Plea | basic rotationJudgement > HoW > CS > DS > Consecrate > Exorcism > Holy Wrath > Divine Plea | 2pieces T9Judgement > DS > HoW > CS > Consecrate > Exorcism > Holy Wrath > Divine Plea | 2pc T9 and 2pc T10Judgement > DS > CS > HoW > Consecrate > Exorcism > Holy Wrath > Divine Plea | 4pieces T10Now, if a DK uses AotD? I'll just freaken punt you. As a tank I AM a control freak. I HATE losing aggro, it's like having a freaken haemorrhage when you lose aggro on a boss then notice it's because of FREAKEN GHOULS.
