I don't think anyone would argue that the latter dungeons and Raids in Cataclysm have been made significantly easier for tanks than previously. I do recall starting off in Cata dungeons and heroics and they were somewhat challenging, but mainly because they relied on the whole group to do something.You can do all the right things on Erudax and Drahga in Grim Batol for example, but if DPS doesn't switch to the invocation of flame, or if someone is standing outside the eye of the storm for Shadow Gale on Erudax, it's probably leading to a wipe. And there was more for tanks to do as well. The swarms of adds on Jan'Alai always gave me issues for some reason. But I think after that initial round of heroics, they decided to make things a bit more forgiving overall. I've sensed that some of this was due to wanting to let more folks dip their toes in the tanking pool. I'm always very supportive of new folks wanting to tank. Heck, I've offered to run dungeons/LFR with folks in our guild just to walk them through the fights their first time through. To anyone else I say go for it. Welcome brother/sister to the glorious brotherhood of tanking! Strap on a shield/some fur/bone armor and let's go get punched in the face :)On second thought... I like the mystique that has surrounded those who tank and tank well for most of Cata. Where's my delete button?
