I agree. I didn't venture into heroics (as a DK tank) until my iLevel was 335, and I had 130K hit points with only self-buffs.And even then it was rough at times.Though healer quality also fluctuates. I've tanked one heroic where the healer stated he couldn't keep me up, and then the next heroic the (different) healer ran the instance at full mana and said I was easy as cake (or pie if you happen to be of that persuasion) to heal.But as a tank, I definately held back a little and didn't jump into heroics straight at the 329 ilevel average. Heroics are hard, and chances are pretty damn good that 2 out of the other 4 people are not ready for the instance you are doing with them. I've seen anything from healers with less than 60K mana (and running out after each and every fight) to DPS doing 4K DPS. You are why there's a tank shortage people. We don't enjoy running with you. Go back to doing regulars and get some real gear and improve your skill.
