I will never, ever, ever, melee dps. Tanking is fine, for whatever reason, but I can just never get the fact that you can't melee from 25 yards away. I played a rogue once. He only shot arrows, as soon as I could get my hands on a bow.

Sounds like you should've rolled a hunter.

I'm the exact opposite-- I like melee, but ranged feels very detached and disconnected to me. I can do it mechanically, but I'm not as good or as comfortable with it. But I'm fine with healing and its cast times....

I love to tank - I'm even back to tanking PuGs if I have my guildie healing for me (I do 20K dps as a tank). I like to heal - when a tank occasionally (very occasionally) throws out that "awesome heals" or when some idiot pulls everything in Stonecore and you manage to heal through it, it's a real rush. I'm ok at ranged DPS (but not a pet classs, so not hunters, warlocks or frsot mage). Melee DPS? I got kicked from groups regularly in Wrath for dps too low as melee, and I'm still no good at it. I use a tank assist macro to target, and often by the time I've acquired the target and gotten back into melee range there's nothing left to do. (Although rewriting the macro would probably help ...)

Same here. I love tanking, but melee dps in a group is a pain for two main reasons: - being subjected to the dangers of boss proximity, and- having to chase after the mobs when the tank is dancing around more than necessary, and therefore having difficulty being in juuust the right spot.

I thought I was alone in this.I am currently leveling a melee class toward my guild's "Classy Gnomes" achievement, and thanking the Light that I gave her Herbalism and Mining as professions.It's not so much the positioning, or the lack of spiffy magical special effects...it's really having the NPC's behind or *ahem* frontal business in super close proximity that makes me loathe it.
