They forgot one. "The guy that out gears the tank and pulls threat then blames tank."I've got an alt that that is a tank. He is in mostly ilvl200 gear from heroic dungeons. And I get dps that out gear me by a huge margin and pull threat off of me then blame me. On my main I always apologize for pulling threat off the tank. As dps its YOUR responsibility to watch your threat.

Had that happen to me yesterday on my 4.8k gs Paladin tank. Two Kingslayer DKs with 6.2k gearscores were Icy Touching before I manage to even place my consecrate and continue to pull threat off me as much as I try to taunt and generate threat. They both subsequently started yelling at me for being a horribad tank even though nobody ended up dying in cases like that, thankfully, despite my wish they had died for being idiots and not knowing how to time their attacks and tone their DPS down accordingly. I put them on /ignore and kept going my way.

Over geared people are why I didn't queue as a tank. I had 540 defense, gems and enchants, 24k health unbuffed, and some low ilvl items. I received sneers and jeers just standing around in Dalaran. Random people "oh look how cute, a wannabe tank". I'm not looking to tank the Lich King, I just wanted to do something other than always be in a race with other DPS.I've often wondered why such over geared people run in randoms. My guess is either they live to rub other people's noses in their GS, or their own guild cannot tolerate them.
