I absolutely love tanking, and it's worth it. Being a main tank for the first time happened when there were no other tanks available, and I was happy to turn the job over to someone better geared and more experienced later in the raid. The trial-by-fire method definitely works for tank training, but it's terrifying.Most of the time, if I'm main-tanking, it's because I know the fight the best or am the best suited to deal with it. I never expected to end up as the main tank for anything, but if I'm available and my group believes that I know what I'm doing, they usually let me have the job. Most of the problems I've run into are when groups aren't clear about who the main tank is, or when I'm not the main tank due to seniority or something, but I know the fight much better. Also, the phrase "taunt off me." Communication in general seems to make or break tanks. You have to talk to us, and we have to remember to talk to each other.
