Some of my ideas, and my solutions as well: 1) Blizzard's solutionThe goodie bag is really irrelevant: just as some blog said, you either give mounts/pets a very low drop rate (and then I dont want to try to get it) or higher drop rate (and you would stop queueing as soon as you get it). 2) Not properly geared tanks for goodie bagCall to Arms: Tank will only increase the number of tanks not ready for HC's (they get the ilvl from PVP gear anyways). Somehow LFG should check your TANKING gear. They will only queue for the bag and the insta queue, not being able to finish the dungeon, and the rest of the party is stuck there until a new tank comes. My solution: this new call to arms should add a buff to that player, like Luck of the Draw. Extra hp, avoidance. It would help poorly geared tanks get into trying it. LFG tank queue should not be filled with epixxx tanks coming for pet/mount, but with fresh people WANTING to tank. Some extra buff would help them not to be afraid. 3) Looting problemIf you queue as dps, you should not need roll on tank gear if the tank needs it. Its ugly. It should be forbidden like armor type. But you cannot queue as a tank until you have the gear. My solution: I dont know if its possible already, but provide good, affordable crafted gear to start tanking (FOR EVERY SLOT). I remember my druid loving Heavy Clefthoof set in BC. I know BS can already do all kind of stuff, but dont forget to add trinkets, weapons, relics. It would also be a nice income to those professions. It should be somewhere in the range of 5000 g to get good crafted gear, which would be sufficient for a HC. Everyone can farm that much money for insta-queueing. !4) DPS are stupid/ agressive / not paying attentionFirst of all thats not really true, morons are morons in any role. However, about stupid dps standing in fire: why does 'fire' has to decrease your health (which is then the job of the healer to fill up)? Make 'fire' (or any ugly thing you should not stand in) stun you, reduce your energy bar to zero, give you an undispellable debuff for minus attack power, spell power, whatever. Make 'fire' hurt your personal dps, not your hp. Let me know what you guys think :)
