One bit of (I hope) constructive criticism: You're written a lot of sentences where you quote a little bit of text. For example - 'grab the mobs "on the inbound"'or 'the initial "face aggro" isn't a big deal'I think for a new player, putting out phrases like this doesn't really help. "on the inbound" and "face aggro" are not phrases which are in common circulation the way "pull" and "LoS" are, but the way you phrase them makes them sound like they are perhaps common jargon players need to remember. The last thing I want as a player considering being a tank is to feel like there is even more things out there that I need to know than there are already. Great article otherwise - covers the basics of everything very nicely.I would add only one tip which is to say - when you are tanking, make sure the mobs are in front of you. You can't parry them unless they are, so in a big AoE pack, ensuring the mobs are all in front can help with damage a lot.
