Thank you for the feedback.Druid tanks were the only class I couldn't get a full perspective on before this article got published. Each class I researched and got the perspective of from a player who plays the tank as his main, then one player who plays it as an alt. The druid main I planned to talk to got busy this week so I was talking to a main spec resto shaman. He's not bad by any stretch (he tanks all of ICC25, well into heroic) but his perspective is going to be completely different when compared to a player that loves and breathes druid tanking. When I hear back from my main spec feral buddy, I'll bring this up with him, and amend as necessary.What's important to remember is that certain situations should set off red flags to healer. A decently geared druid tank shouldn't have any trouble, but neither will most decently geared tanks. This guide isn't for them. I have seen every tank class survive wonderfully and die horribly from bad pulls, and as a healer, knowing what a tank can do to survive is going to help me help them. I'm not going to write an article that says "here are 4 types of tanks, in every situation if they are decently geared, with a good player behind them, you'll be fine and won't have to heal hard." That is of no help to healers who are trying to make triage decisions about when it's safe to switch off a tank and heal the dps.But as I said, after I talk to Mr. Bear tank, I will look back over the section and fix what needs fixing.
