@End.UserI would have to pick at your argument a bit. What exactly do you mean by "tank a boss"? I'd argue that *no* class can handle a level-appropriate boss by itself, even a tank. Sure, a tank might last longer in a fight but s/he always need the support of a healer and would never be able to take a boss down alone. Given the presence of a healer, however, I think any class could tank in a pinch. (Or maybe not a pinch. I'd be curious to try some time.)Once upon a time I was in a pug on my fire mage and the tank and 2 dps died fighting Ulthok in Throne of Tides. He was somewhere between 20% and 30% health but I managed to down him while running/blinking the entire time, with the healer's help of course. (It was one of my most thrilling moments in WoW. I was shaking like a leaf the whole time, and when Ulthok finally died I jumped out of my chair and screamed.)
