I just started Cata tanking on my 83 pally. I held off because of wipe fears (I'm a Wrath tank baby, but been playing since 2005). I decided to try it after a friend, an experienced healer, suggested we team up. I've run Cata 5-mans as a DPS alt so I'm familiar with the fights. I reforged my gear so my Block chance is nearly 60%.I have not found tanking to be as challenging as expected. Maybe it's because Blizz upped my threat so I don't have to really worry about losing aggro and chasing mobs around and my friend's healing gear and skill keeps me above 50% at all times.I'm a long way from raiding so I can't offer feedback on that aspect, but I suggest give it a shot even if you're a tanking worry wart like me. I hate feeling like I let my group down.

I used to tank, Cata has bored the hell out of me, so I've stopped. In fact all the long term tanks I know have ditched it due to boredom. A lot have left (I took a break) and others have gone to dps or healing.Tank is just not engaging anymore, its just dps but with lower numbers and auto threat.BOOOOOOORRRRRRIIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!
