I've never played a tank and currently play mainly healers and some dps. I am a level 85 raid-geared healer who used to enjoy 5-man pugs. However, I can't tell you how many tanks I've run into lately who want to just run thru the dungeon - perhaps to prove their prowess without cc's. If, as a healer, you ask them to slow down, or to cc, you often get insulting remarks like "learn to play, you shouldn't need cc". Or, "you wouldn't need to drink if you knew how to manage your mana". These are only a couple of the nasty things that have been said to me and many of my healing friends. I believe that we are mainly getting the last two types of tanks you mentioned and many of them seem to have a god complex. Those in the apprentice category are often helped to learn by their guilds and therefore aren't running pugs. I am VERY discouraged and don't see this reward system attracting many good people.
