Great list of comparisons there Michael. Also dont forget that a bear's only interupt (bash) isnt even off the GCD, so chances are you wont be able to use it in time to interupt that heal/spell before it goes off, unless you stop doing everything just to wait for it.I have a tank of every class, and the bear is by far the saddest most lacking tank when it comes to utility. Bears have to rely on their group for just about every type of control needed to successfully tank. Even the small number of abilities bears do have to support the group/raid (Innervate, combat res) cant be used in form, which means they cant be used, because shifting out of bear for a second = dead. Its like telling a pally he has to drop all his armour and shield just to put Hand of Protection or Divine Sac on someone.I laugh bitterly when warriors complain about aoe tanking and how other tanks have it so much better, because they clearly have never tanked on another class and dont know just how good they have it.
