On the subject of Arms Tanking, I'd love to see both arms and protection be able to tank, but in different ways:Protection would be the iron-clad meatshield, who focuses mainly on health, block, armor and parry, AKA being able to handle more damage, whileArms would be the agile, precise weapon master, who focuses on dodge, parry, and damage reducing (de)buffs, AKA preventing and reducing damage taken, both for himself and the OT or MT.This would make both the trees different, and made us more hybrid-ish. Of course, some people would like to see DPS/DPS/Tanking, but hey, you can't please everybody...By the way, very nice article Mr. Rossi.

I like this idea, it offers flexibility. Currently we run 2 warriors tanks in my 10-man (I'm the MT) I feel like the OT just doesn't have that much to do. It is so hard sometimes to OT as a warrior because you can't build that rage, you feel like you aren't contributing.Now if one of those warriors could go Arms with a shield and dodge some of those incoming attach, disarm/distract the boss, parry away big hits, etc that would be fun. Imagine an intercept like ability that parry's the next 5 attacks or something. The OT runs in from the side and deftly interrupts the bosses furious attacks lessening damage to the MT, now that would be fun.Rossi,Great article and some really great ideas.
