As a die-hard tank and part-time healer, please, PLEASE don't let yourself be tempted to queue up as a tank for instant queues if you would rather DPS, because you'll have a DPS mindset (and later on when it starts to matter, DPS gear.) Yes, you can still get slaughtered in DPS gear in Northrend instances if you try to act like Mr Big Bad Tank and pull whole rooms.Sure, give tanking a go to see if you like it. That's how I first got into it six years ago. But if you don't enjoy it or aren't good at it or would rather DPS, resist the temptation to queue as a tank. We can tell, and your healer will be crying on the inside.

Just wanted to say- if you're worried if you're good enough, don't worry about it (lol). Just make sure you got tanking gear, fix your bars for tanking, and give it a shot. Try it first in an instance that you out level to you yourself an idea of what to expect, but tanking leveling instances can definitely be fun, and I'd be sad to think people were missing out on it because they were too worried about failure. Failure happens whether you suck or not, sometimes you just have to give it a try.
