@loop_not_definedI know. And that's the problem. Because you and I both know they're going to try. They're going to wipe the group. They're going to spew bile at the healer and probably try to kick the healer (and there's a good chance the kick will succeed. I've seen healers kicked for all kinds of horrible reasons, including one who AFK'd because her kid was crying and the tank ran in and pulled the boss anyway.) Or they're going to throw a tantrum and drop group, leaving the group to slowly dissolve because they don't want to wait for another tank. Or they're going to refuse to leave and get deserter, forcing us to disband unless we want to wipe over and over.Bribes are not the way to get good, solid, well geared tanks. It's the way to attract the "gimme gimme" crowd who thinks tanking is easy and a quick spec hop is all they need to get sweet, sweet rewards.Call me a pessimist, but I already see enough of this going on and the only reward for tanking right now is an instant queue. When you can get extra gold and goodies, it's going to attract the wrong kinds of tanks. It's going to create a lot more unpleasantness in the dungeon finder than there currently is. I really wonder if they thought this through at all.
