As a warrior tank at 60, I'm constantly finding myself having to yell at newbie Death Knights in Ramps to stop Death Gripping everything they see. And when it comes to helping with casters, of course they do nothing at all... Doesn't really help the healer is a druid in feral spec.

^ This. And not just at 60. I've just started a baby tankadin and while lower level instances don't require the same degree of co-ordination as later ones, I have been amazed at the number of times a fight starts with the dps pulling before I've even had a chance to make contact with the mob. Really frustrating was the warrior who kept 'intervening' just after I made a pull, stunning the mob and then forcing me to run to it rather then letting it come to me.

And on that note, if you're going to queue as a healer in feral spec, please actually heal, as opposed to waiting for the entire group to get down to 10% before shifting out of cat and throwing hots on the tank.

Rotf,I feel your pain. Needless to say I've been tanking a very long time on my warrior and i've seen all kinds of stupid. The really sad thing is these are the idiots that will faceroll their way through heroics into full T9 and then TRY to faceroll their way through raids and that is where the problem comes in. Yes blizzard it's great you want everyone even casual players to see end game but what is going to happen is they will get to icc and be called "noob", "dude wtf", "kick that twat" and a whole host of other insults. This is not fair on them or you. Not fair on you because your there to enjoy a challange not fair on them because they've been spoon fed easy content and easy gear.

I also have a baby tankadin and it is frustrating when players act the same way in a level 60 dungeon with a tank in greens and blues as they do in a level 80 dungeon with a tank in all 232+ epics. The fact is younger tanks don't have the tools they will eventually have to do their jobs. Also, CC didn't go away until LK for a reason. Many of the BC dungeons can't be AoEed in quest gear.
