I have been running LFD as a tank, because up until yesterday my guild had 1 or 2 heroic ready members on at a time. I am in a new guild and that doesn't appear to be a problem (although it has been only one day). I thought about going Ret to avoid the tank abuse, didn't like the long queue times and need to re-gear. So continue to live through the abuse. Part of the problem is everyone blames the tank for everything. Yes, sometimes it is my fault, I pulled too many on accident, or thought we could handle it, or turned a boss the wrong way or whatever. Sometimes I just don't know the fight. But most of the time if we wipe it is either someone elses fault, or all of us are equally to blame (it took several tries to beat the first boss in Shadowfang last night, we were all learning). Yet, the tank always gets blamed (or the healer). I can't keep people from stepping in fire, or falling off a ledge, or whatever. Some fights it is jst a matter of not enough DPS to burn down the boss before healer runs out of mana. If it the tanks fault blame the tank, but don't blame the tank because someone else messed up. There are 5 people in the group and law of averages the tank is at fault 20% but they get the abuse 60% of time (healer 35% of the rest of the time).
