@bigberry51Spoken like a true dps player. You think the worst part of a dungeon is just the queue, because for you its easymode once you get into the dungeon. For a tank the worst part is the dungeon itself. Take a look at the activity log on your recount sometime, see who is *always* at the top, who is the most active, who has to be focused 100% of the time from the start of the dungeon to the end; the tank.I been gearing a hunter up in heroics and by playing with just a fraction of the focus I usually need for tanking I'm almost always top of dps, while also CC'ing two mobs, and the tank is almost always 2nd on dps. Thats how bad the general state of dps are; like the mage yesterday who had enchanted with +3 resist on chest and bracers and +agility on gloves. Or the BM hunter doing at best 3k dps. A tank gearing or performing like that (and even healers) would fall flat on his face right at the start, yet dps can easily be carried along.Is the 'tanking rotation and tactics' harder than that of a dps? No. Does tanking require exponentially more focus, awareness, knowledge, and presence than dps? Absolutely. And this isnt just *my* opinion, because apparently 30-40min queues vs. 0 min queues agrees with me.
