I love to tank and have several maxxed out alts that can tank--warrior, druid, and a dk--but won't use LFD and pug as a tank by myself. I usually run in full guild/friend groups, or rarely 3 of us will queue and pick up two randoms. I don't solo tank queue.The "goody bag" will never be enough motivation for me to solo queue because I play wow (and tank) to have fun. Having random strangers be verbally abusive or unpleasant to me or other group members is not fun. I want runs that are at least polite and ideally pleasant. I don't care if there are a bunch of wipes (and people improve), or no one wipes at all. Did I get enough comraderie and emotional feedback to make it worth 1+ hours of my life? It's fine if people only say "hi" and "good group" during the run. Are they trying to play as a team, or as a bunch of self centered solos?I don't play WOW for imaginary loot (an added benefit, but not the main thing), but instead for the social aspect and working together to challenge and defeat internet dragons as a team. If I didn't want to play with other people, I might as well go and play a pew pew first person shooter game alone.What *might* motivate me to queue as a tank more often in general:1) An option to LFD only on my server versus cross server. This way, I can add both to my friends and ignore lists. If I have 1 or 2 allies queuing up with me, I am much much more inclined to run more than one dungeon a day because of the company.2) When loot drops, Have "need" be for current spec you are running during the instance, with a lower priority for "need for OS" if the MS passes or greeds, and then "greed" as a lower priority after that.3) If I can't have "LFD only on my server", I want an option to ignore players cross realm so they never group with me again, and another option to group with players (if we're both on line and looking to run) that I enjoyed and would be happy to see again.
