"But in an odd way, Call to Arms is kind of a raw deal to a DPS main attempting to do this. Not only does these people still have to do their weekly dungeon runs on their mains for valor points, but they're now tasked with an extra set of runs on a tank alt under the worst possible circumstances -- a random PuG."I see this as a good thing, to be honest. DPSers who do this will learn some things, like, perhaps, how ugly an experience tanking for a PUG can be, or how unhelpful it is to be blamed for losing aggro when you're doing everything you can to hold it, or how much harder it can be to take and hold aggro when the DPS won't let you be the first person to draw it. Tanking for PUGs has improved my DPS game immeasurably, because I now know what tanks need for various encounters, and I know how to recognize when I'm over-aggroing, and I know which mobs to drop first to keep the tank's life as easy as possible.
