Dream of lock tanking? We have had some encounters with lock tanking in mind! Searing Pain originally was a big threat grab. The twins in AQ40 in classic, in SSC and with sl/sl for BC, Wrath saw the taunt ability in demo form and stats that allowed us to tank decently with our voidwalkers. There have been a few encounters in Cata that I have seen the tank bite the dust and soul burned out my voidwalker with health tunnel for the win. Tanking as a warlock is really just a matter of taking advantage of the resources blizzard throws our way. Hopefully they give demonform back its taunt.

The point is that Nether Plating doesn't foreshadow Demonology becoming a full-on tank spec, with the ability to queue as a tank and serve as the group's main tank. Obviously, the history of Warlock tanking is pretty cool regardless.

Personally I am fine with warlock tanking being highly situational as it is now! There is nothing better than listening to my PUG group tell me just how fantastic of a warlock I am, bad tanks are what encourages me to random queue all night long ^_^
