I've always hated offtanking. It's normally sitting there, using a few attacks to do damage on the boss waiting for your target to appear.Pretty much stopped tanking because so far the lesser skilled person is the MT and it just frustrates me to hell. (I've pugged most of WotLK span) Or the lesser geared person tries to take the glory taunting whenever, but it seems like they never taunt the loose mobs if there ever are any.

Frankly, that's one reason why I liked off tanking. The other big name tank in the guild? He had the gear. He could tank bosses just fine. Picking up adds? Not... so much.Maybe it was because there wasn't any MT vs OT loot drama but all that mattered was getting the boss down. I was better at zipping around, picking up adds, and, by golly, that's what I did.'course, there was always trouble when I was main tanking and would try to grab adds out of instinct but OTOH, it was a great habit in 5mans and wipe prevention effort.
