I've enjoyed being a tank throughout the years, and while I do run into the group with the bad dps, or the dps that can't be bothered to run an instance at a normal pace, I've also run with amazing groups that were calm, and the run went very smoothly. To those dps and healers that are just terrible in a group, I place them on my ignore list, and hope that keeps me away from ever having to run with them again. While I've usually lost the need to run randoms after raiding (T4-T6 or T7-T9 content), I'll still do it to help gear friends, or to collect badges/points to gear alt specs and characters with BoA gear.To those dps who feel the need to rush a tank through an instance. Try it yourself sometime, instead of acting the role of a 12 yr old. When I dps, I hate the queue times as much as everyone else, but I'm grateful for when I do get a good tank, and try to stay patient with bad tanks. Some are simply inexperienced, that's life.To a healer complaining to pull more. The tank sets the pace of the instance. I don't need help pulling mobs, or having you threaten to not heal because we're not going your pace. If you want to set the pace, roll a tank.
