And yet, if every class had a tanking tree - even if it were sub-par - I think that issue would lighten somewhat. Tank leaves? The warlock can pop metamorphosis (losing their demon but able to stay in that form indefinitely). The warlock leaves? The rogue can go combat, with a 400% increase in armor, increased dodge and parry, extra energy but less yellow damage. Oh, the rogue forgot to dual spec for combat? No problem, we have a beast master hunter who literally "becomes" their tenacity pet and can tank in that form.I suspect some of the shenanigans in the dungeon finder occur because there are limitations. You know, it's easy to find DPS, harder to find healers and tanks. If every class could at least tank *somewhat*, as a filler until a "pure tank" came along, I think it might make dungeons a bit better. As the saying goes, you never *really* appreciate how much the tank does until you have to do it yourself. (Ditto healers.)
