Ok, this is the old grumpy article, but man, rossi qqs too much. A few weeks ago he was crying about valor caps and that he COULDN'T play his main because of not getting more valor points. And now "People will pressure me to tank, this is unacceptable". Well boo hoo, man up and tell them you're there to DPS. Problem solved.

The fact that he's getting pressured. Not that he can't say no. He's trying to find a way that the group doesn't pressure him into switching. I ran into this issue with my guild at one point. We were in Firelands, and our regular MT didn't make it, so they looked to me and the other warrior to switch to a tanking spec. At the time I had a fury for pve and arms for pvp spec, so I had to hearth to org, respec, and re-do my keybinds. I did it to help the group, but personally, I didn't want to do it at all.

ok I didn't read the article about valor cap, but I'm not gonna, so I'm just gonna say this one sentence: If there's not valor cap, or the cap is higher, wouldn't you be pressured more by having to grind more every week?Sounds like your main issue is pressure. Well, I understand you're in a high-end hardcore progression guild, but maybe, if there is so much pressure to do something specific, maybe you're not having fun anymore? Either change the game or change the guild.Whatever Blizzard does, there's always pressure to do something. Give all classes all roles? Then pressure to be able to tank and heal and dps really well. Give all classes one role? Be prepared to be pressured to ROLL a new class if your guild is short on healers.

As someone who enjoys tanking, dpsing, and healing, the word "pressure" just doesn't register with me. I don't really understand what the big deal is. If someone is trying to make you tank then you should say to them "well why aren't YOU tanking? hmm? stop being a backseat driver and re-roll if it's so important to you"
