I have never attempted to tank because it all seemed to difficult for lack of a better word, however with the what seems to be lack of tanks I was thinking of trying it so heres some info on me.My latency goes from 80s to around 700 and usually settles in the 1-200 range is this okay for a tank? Also Im a clicker Ive tried but I just never seemed to get the hang of using keyboard to attack except for my healer I do it with minimal mouse clicking, how much will this affect me? I was always afraid to try healing until I bit the bullet and tried it now I love it albeit I havent done any cata dungeons yet but is tanking as hard and stressful as it seems? Finally if I do decide to do it what are some good sites that go into more detail that are class specific so I know before hand what spells to use and such?

Tanks generally use a combination of clicking and keybinds to tank. You should probably have your taunts and such keybound, at the very least, because you're going to have to click on the mob that's attacking your healer, and then you have to move it down to your action bar and click your Taunt. That's a lot of time that the mob can be whacking on your healer, no matter how fast you are at clicking. Aside from that, you can probably get away with clicking for most other things, although keybindings are much faster.
