As someone who's done plenty of tanking, I applaud this change. Imagine just how many times you've been in a raid or a heroic when letting ONE add or the boss after an aggro dump gets a melee squashed instantly. There's SUCH a huge divide between tanks and non-tanks that unless a pull is executed absolutely flawlessly, a wipe is almost guaranteed. Some bosses will even one-shot non-tank plate wearers.What they're doing with this change is making it so that an accidental slipup like that won't necessarily spell the end of that character before you've even had a chance to react. Your squishier friends aren't going to be able to stand up to a fullblown onslaught from a monster for more than a few seconds, but it's plenty more time for you to try and get the situation under control before it's a wipe (especially because a stray mob's gonna gun straight for your healer). You're still going to be the only one in the group who can stand up to the waves of adds you're gonna be keeping from your friends.
