As someone who has always had a priest main, I've healed and DPSed. When I first tried my hand at tanking late WOTLK, I was surprised. I've always had respect and thanks for my tanks, but it really is amazing how hard it is to do what they do.

I'm the other way around. Tanking to me is second nature; to look at what healers do seems like gazing upon someone 5-starring Through the Fire and Flames on Insane.

Me too. healers have to play a lethal game of whack-a-mole where the smallest slip-up triggers a cascade effect that can bring down the whole group.I have the utmost respect for healers and what they do.My job as a tank is to make the healer's job easier. That means I tank everything, because healing one target is easier than healing two. It means I use my cooldowns as effectively as possible to reduce as much as possible the incoming damage to preserve the healer's mana.For me, tanking is easy and healing is witchcraft.
