@DayntheboldI have to strongly disagree with "You pulled it, you tank it" in a pug 5 man. The only safe thing to do is to try your best to hold all the mobs. I understand the point but unfortunately the same jerks who pull aggro as a dpser too often use a threat wipe after the mob hits them, dropping it off on a convenient healer or innocent ranged dpser. This happened to me several times while I was tanking a pug heroic last night and just about drove me crazy.Heck, even if they don't wipe their aggro either the healer stresses and keeps them up or they die. If they live through it they are encouraged to do it again. If they die the mob is almost certain to go running to the healer.If someone is doing a bad job by pulling aggro, call them out on it. If they apologize try to help them. If they ignore you or get rude kick them or drop group.But if you're the tank, hold aggro until you die. That's the job.
