"What if there are multiple casters in a pull and a DPSer won't stop hitting something I'm not attacking? "Casters are often a lot less lethal for non-tanks than free melee mobs. If the healer is even halfway decent this shouldn't cause too much trouble.

Yup. That's pretty much what Alison says a couple paragraphs above the sentence you quoted.

Yeah, I'd much rather toss a hot and a nourish on a DPS who decides that the tree shouldn't be getting hit than sitting there letting me take the pushback (such as it is for a tree) from a caster wailing on me. (Plus the whole general distraction between my two favorite healing targets in the whole world: my tank and myself.) If I can LoS the mob onto the tank, fine (which I do in HoR), but most of the time if the mob isn't in LoS, neither is the tank.

I've tanked a lot with my warrior lately and their toolbox really makes my bear sad... I can shield bash one mob, silencing it, drag it to second caster while using heroic throw on the third one to force it to run to me too. And then I still have cool buttons like Concussion Blow, Shockwave and Spell Reflection left. After all that, bears feel rather limited (still love kitties tho).

I used to run heroics with a Sub-spec rogue mate who'd insist on tanking a caster out of every pull. What with stunlocks, kicks, cloak etc they never got off an effective cast, so he took far less damage than I would have. He was like a CC that also killed. Good times.
