"Off-tank" is only a dated term because of Blizzard's raid designs in Wrath. Naxx had plenty of OT opportunities; Ulduar had a few. Only real tanking encounters that have been situationally different for an OT versus an MT has been Putricide and LK, and Putricide was a freaking vehicle fight for OT. Hopefully they'll move back to a BC-era tanking model for fights in Cataclysm.And yes, I personally loved being off-tank back in the day. MT was all about being geared and soaking huge hits... OT was the clean-up crew. It was frantic and fun. I can't even begin to tell you how boring it is to stand in place and taunt on rotation, or pop cooldowns once every three minutes.
