Well said. This pretty much summarises my tanking experience; on top of all the boss positioning and keeping an eye on boss ability cooldowns, as well as threat generation, I'm having to devote a lot of braincells to just keeping myself alive - and I'm running low on braincells these days. I find that I'm keeping diseases up, burning off Blood Runes, Runestriking and saving the Deathstrikes for reacting to big hits - the only problem is that you can't do this until you're 30-40% of the way through a fight as you need to burn everything that pops up to generate threat before that point. A little change somewhere would be nice to take some of the stress out of staying alive, but I really like the Mastery-Blood Shield system that we have going on at the moment.

Look, I know what you have to say is very important, and I'm totally with you on the issues of complexity in tanking...but while reading your post, I couldn't help but hear Duke Nukem's voice in the back of my head saying:"I'm here to tank bosses and use up braincells......and I'm runnin' low on braincells."
