I have to agree. As fury, I don't know how many times I've been forced to either stand in stuff and get blamed for not moving or move out of stuff and get blamed for not dpsing. I also tank, so I understand what's going on, but sometimes it's impossible to convince others. The rule to "not stand in the fire" is so pounded into everyone's heads, that no one likes to believe that sometimes, as melee, it's not your fault. I'm not saying you should just stand in it, anyway. But I am saying that if you force us to move away from the boss to get out of the fire, then don't blame us for not putting out enough dps.The tank in me responds:At the same time, it can be awfully damn hard, especially when you are still getting familiar with a certain fight, to maneuver the boss so that you're not out of caster range, he's not facing the raid, and you're not forcing the melee to stand in the bad when, like the author said, you have his enormous crotch in your face and you're surrounded by a bajilion good and bad spell effects and a swarm of warriors, rogues, pallys, DKs, and such all masking what's on the floor.I'm torn.
