It'll continue to be strong at the start of the week, and weaker as the week rolls on. Guildmates reported near-instant queues on Tuesday and Wednesday, but by the weekend, I tried queueing (as a tank, no less) and was seeing upwards of 45 minute projected wait times.I suspect that'll be an ongoing trend, as people get the gear they want and abandon the new feature, as well as slowing a bit as the novelty wears off.I'm not sure how long LFR will sustain viability without any new content releases until MoP.

Tank queues were always longer than healers or dps, even on Tuesday night. I suspect I'm going to have to get my crappy healing offspec back up to par if I want to tag along on guild LFR night.

how would the wait for being a tank be remarkable? we knew going in, our presence while required, tanks would be less in demand then the other roles. The side benefit being you are really only in competition with that other tank for rolls on a lot of stuff. So i'll take a 10-30 min wait if it increases my chance for upgrades.

Yeah, I forgot that the tank shortage doesn't extend to LFR. I'll definitely add DPS to my queue listing as well.But as a tank, I'm not down with 45-minute waits. If I wanted that, I'd have rolled a DPSer. ;D
