@DarkWalker: Agreed about sharing gear between roles. I have a DK Tank that I just don't enjoy much, so I was going to switch him to DPS. Switching late in expansions--which is typically when you might want people to switch roles and try something different--is more and more difficult. I've found I either need to DPS in my tank gear and get yelled at or do the thing I don't want (Tanking) to get some DPS gear. There are limited amount of crafted gear I can purchase, but it's all pretty low level, sticking me back at the very beginning of the instance gearing cycle.Of course, I at least have the option of DPSing in Tank gear. But a DPS trying to tank in DPS gear will get absolutely killed--both by mobs and their fellow players.Note to the Editors: Maybe we could get a series of columns on how to transition from one role to another. Gearing, buttons you hit, things to watch for you might not have known about in an encounter, etc.
