I can't help but wonder if the tanks that cry, "OMG I'm almost out-DPSing the DPS!" are the same tanks that focus on damage AND NOT FREAKIN' THREAT. The ONLY time I struggle to stay above a tank is when he spends half the instance chasing after loose mobs he keeps losing aggro on. Strangely, his DPS is close to mine.Mind you, I'm not the one pulling aggro. I'm a good DPS - I use Omen. But the fact that I'm dangerously close to pulling aggro just with Sweeping Strikes tells me that Bladestorm probably isn't going to get used, ever.One time we actually had a completely overgeared tank leave the dungeon over this. I put on my so-so tanking gear, we brought in another DPS, and continued the dungeon without a hitch. I was miles and miles ahead of everybody else...on *threat*, the statistic that matters. It was wonderful seeing the Mage in the group finally being able to use Blizzard.
