Very good article Allison! I'm (or rather was ;) ) a Pally Tank, properly speced and In nearly all 232, 245 gear.I still got abuse, as before the LFD system I didn't run a huge number of dungeons and so don't know every last fight intimately. I also refuse to chain pull if there are newer (or rather somewhat under-geared) players in the group. You know how that goes when the only reason people even play WoW anymore is for the 5 minute Frostie run.Definitely the highest barrier to entry level tanking is the douchebagginess of the WoW population in general.I don't tank randoms anymore, I refuse. I've dual specced to Ret and am collecting a DPS set now and I queue only as DPS and do my best to help out the noob tanks, as people who are willing to get into that thankless business are going to become fewer and fewer I think.
