well, this is an improvement in clarification. This makes me happy.

So, this did get me to tank a random regular last night. I sat looking at the "Look For Group" button for 10 minutes, then insta-q'd into middle of HoO just after a tank had left. The group was pretty reasonable, so reasonable that we had finished the run before I realized that I was still in PvP gear (!). Making the satchel "Bind on Account" is awesome, now I DO have an incentive to play my neglected 85's. (The tank I played last night hadn't been played since February ...).

Bribery is not a solution to a design issue. A band aid, yes, a solution, no.I'll add my vote for giving the tank more control. A group leader is a group leader for a reason. Can it be abused? Sure. Will it be LESS abused than the vote kick? Yes.This won't solve the overly common ass-hattery of the general population, but it will make a tank more comfortable signing up. Removing vote kick would be another good step. It was built to be abused. Get a bad group? Suck it up and finish or take the hit and quit it.

@IceAnzu requires level 40. And actually, I believe all of the dungeon drop mounts require level 40.

@Elvgren:99.9% of the time, I'm going to agree with you. But what about today when I qued up on my resto shaman and got a druid that A- Wanted to tank in cat form, B- Would pull massive groups, then hide behind me, and C- Left before we were allowed to kick him for a battleground without leaving our group.The rest of us were all perfectly capable players. Should we have just had to eat it in that case?

Elvgren, the vast majority of the time someone is so horrible that a kick vote is taken, in my experience, its being taken on the tank. The fast queues they get have, on a whole, produced a crop of self entitled elitist ass-hat tanks that think they are God's gift to gaming, and that us piddly little DPS should just be happy that they dared grace us with their presence.No, the ability to kick a jerk-ass tank has got to stay.
