Oh My Gosh Hrothgar!!! have you been inside my head? This is the most true and best comment on wow insider ever...and I mean ever. Having myself levelled a few dps and healer via the dungeon finder tool I can safely say that bad tanks are the absolute worst thing about it. Especially as a healer you really start to hate these guys...cause you know were getting the blame when the group can't survive the pally "tank" in ret spec and gear pulling 30% of an entire instance. Of as dps you hate them equally much for making you leveling soo much longer.In my latest experience I can say that I reached the ignore cap around lvl75 on my disc priest. And that ignore list is filled with 96% bad, awful, ignorant, pseudo tanks with egos so inflated they learned flying at lvl 1. On my good days I have often tried to help them out by explaining a few of the very simple basic rules of tanking...but so many times they will reply with pure un-watered down hatred and bile that I finally came to terms with the fact that it simply isn't worth my trouble.Oh and don't give me any crap about not knowing what tanking is like...I've tanked every bloody thing up to and including Arthas. And the simple fact remains: tanking is damn easy... It can be stressful it can be demanding but it is not overly complicated.What Blizzard should do is impose a speck check. So you cant que as tank if you don't have a tank spec. In addition you should not get a dungeon CD if you leave a group after the tank has left...Oh and they should put some tank recommendations in the login screen, like say: as a tank, your role is to PROTECT your group - not to boss them around. And perhaps: as a tank remember you are not invinsible: you need a healer with a manabar that is not close to empty when you pull....There are others but atleast this would be a start
