@ Heilig (again)I can sort of see what you mean when it comes to brand new players starting from the ground up with little to no help or advice from experienced players - a player who doesn't even really know what a tank is or what he/she does as a tank. However, from your original post, it just sounded like you were complaining about not being able to grab DPS talents as a tank personally (when you said "I'll jump on that" I figured you meant that YOU would be unhappy about it if YOU leveled a tank) and not in relation to new players. Even still, I think the types of players you describe in your response will be pretty few and far between as I don't think most brand new players would start off leveling a tank anyway (for many of the same reasons you gave). Beyond that, Blizzard's philosophy about tanking is that it can pretty much be done by any tanking class no matter what the spec until it comes to the higher up content - so I still don't find it to be much of a concern.
