I agree. Everything depends on your experience level of course. If you are new to tanking or if you are an altoholic like me, and your 6th alt is a tank, there still might be challenges, but in general it seems tanking has become easier than it used to be. I still don't want to tank the old Cataclysm heroics, but I have no issue with the new Twilight ones.

I miss the old Cata entry-level heroics. You can bet your butt I didn't queue until I was roughly 340 ilvl even though you can get in at 333, because I knew the group's success rode largely on my shoulders as the tank. I made damned sure I was properly specc'd, gemmed, and enchanted (the lattermost was pretty easy since I'm an enchanter). And cc? Oh yeah. And cooldowns. And making sure you didn't waste cooldowns/interrupts. Nowadays? Run in. Hit stuff till it dies. /yawn, /sigh, see how many pieces of armor you can sneak off before the healer notices (I'm a bear) one piece at a time. Tee hee. But yah, I miss the challenge and the engaging tanking. Hopefully MOP will return some of this with the "active mitigation" system. Here's hoping.
