"I had no idea just how much absurd damage I could do on you."Reading this makes me rage. Hard. I had a feeling that the vengeance change would lead to absurd damage output from tanks. There is hardly a thing that annoys me more than a tank doing competitive DPS. Get the fuck off my turf. I suppose it's fine because "it's just trash". Well, how would a tank like it if I could successfully tank trash? If I just ran ahead and tanked everything? they'd probably hate it. In fact, they would hate it. I can say that with 100% certainty.Blizz needs to balance this game correctly. Every role in their place. That's why I loved BC. Everyone did their own role and stayed the hell out of other people's roles. A tank's DPS was laughable as was a healer's. In a similar fashion no DPS could adequately tank or heal. That is the game as it should be. I'm glad I haven't played 4.3 if we're still suffering from this kind of wrath-era bullshit./rant off

"Everyone did their own role and stayed the hell out of other people's roles."It's this type of attitude that I just don't agree with, particularly during BC. Back then, many specs were in a very strange place, particularly druids. They were still tuning everything away from a defined role for each class. Druids and Palladins used to be healers, and BC was the time for testing what they could do with the other specs. To say "A tank's DPS was laughable as was a healer's. In a similar fashion no DPS could adequately tank or heal." - it just didn't apply to BC, or vanilla, for that matter.Blizzard is moving away from pigeon-holing players again in MoP. Take a glance at the druid talents- they are instigating a ton of versatility across the board for all specs. I fully expect bears to reach DK status for survivability and be able to DPS competitively as an off tank.Brace yourself.

Lishalacey...you're talking about something completely different than what I'm talking about. I'm fine with one class being able to fill multiple roles. What I'm not fine with is a class performing multiple roles AT THE SAME TIME. A bear tank who's doing competitive DPS is essentially performing the role of tank and damage dealer at the same time.Believe me...I don't want to go back to the vanilla days where paladins could only be healers, warriors could only be tanks, etc. That's not what I'm advocating.
