I'm not talking about an undergeared tank who knows what he's doing, doing the best he can, and still losing aggro. I wouldn't call that person a really horrible tank. I'd say the dps should cut that guy or girl some slack, but I wouldn't call them horrible either.I'm talking Death Knight tank that death grips a melee mob to them and then tanks only that mob while 3 casters pelt the healer. I'm talking tanks who believe every encounter is a stand there and tank and spank and have no awareness of anything that is going on. I had a tank, on the second boss in Throne of the Tides, tank the guy in the middle of the room and stand in the purple goo that just kept getting bigger and bigger. I'm suprised I kept him alive through that. I even had a tank that had a broken weapon and refused to acknowledge our repeated attempts to point it out to him. He was literally punching the mobs.This has been 90% of my heroics lately. If a tank is losing aggro because he is in 340 gear while a 378 geared mage is unloading on a different target than him, that doesn't make him horrible.
