"Tanking" in PnP RPG's didn't even emerge until after WOW was released. To my knowledge, it's not even a common trait in PnP RPG's, there is nothing in an encounter preventing the GM from having all the NPC's "Kill the one in the dress". I believe one version or other of AD&D has some form of "taunts". Sure, there's always been plate-wearers and shield-users, but they had no abilities whatsoever to force an NPC to attack them instead of the flimsy caster.
