I'm trying to get enthusiastic. I really am trying to get excited.But I've always felt that Bliz had two choice when it came to tank rotations and fight mechanics: simple rotation and complex fight (eg adds to pick up, or tank swapping, or lots of movement, etc) or the other choice ... complex rotation and simple fight. Let's face it - not everyone is a great tank. Plenty of us are just good to OK (I include myself in this group, but I flatter myself that I'm more on the good side rather than just OK :D ) and trying to manage a complex roation and a complex fight simulatenously will tend to result in lots of mistakes.My personal preference will always be a simple rotation to manage while negotiating my way through a complex fight. I really do worry that a complex rotation will result in Blizz bringing back tank-and-spank fights where you pull the boss, turn his/her back to the raid, and everyone stands there running their rotations until it's time to loot.I know it's too early to draw any such conclusions but the alternative scares me more ... trying to juggle a complex rotation where a mistep can cause a wipe, whilst running all over the room to pick up adds whilst avoiding the fire/void zone/other nasty mechanic.I'm probably just being paranoid ... but that would definately be too much of a good thing for my taste.
