@ Scooter: To an extent you have a point, but a rogue is a bit stuffed as far as performing other roles is concerned.If you see warriors QQing about queues, then by all means have a bash at them for being a part of the problem instead of a part of the solution. Same goes for pallies, DKs, and druids. All of them can tank, so if they want shorter queues it is within their power to change that. If they choose not to tank, then they should also choose not to complain.It is not in the power of a rogue, hunter, mage, or warlock to fix the queueing issue. Rolling another toon does not help them gear their DPS toon. You can't transfer points or award dungeon loot to toons not in the instance.In the end, the problem is Blizzard's. Tanking is simply not appealing to the majority. Part of that is because of the responsibility placed on tanks, part is the abuse they cop in instances, and part is because at the 25-man level, you don't need 1 tank for every 5 people.The result of that lack of appeal is fewer tanks in comparison to others. Until that is changed, queues will remain the same. They are long. They are not fun.From a player perspective, anyone who can tank or heal should be tanking or healing. If Bliz isn't going to come to the party, then we are the only people who can help our friends get reasonable queue times.
