I'm shocked at how many people thought that a glyph meant they could tank on their warlocks.

I didn't realize people were serious...

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I kept seeing all this speculation and thinking, "Really? They actually think Warlocks will become a tank from just one glyph?" Every other tank has a full spec, specific tanking gear and specific tanking glyphs. This has always just felt like a flavor, "fun" sort of thing.That said I would definitely not be against seeing a Warlock tank or some other caster-type tank, whether from an existing class or a new one, but like GC said, it would be something much more involved than one glyph.

no you idiots, that one glyph gave us all a glimmer of hope that blizzard was doing other things that would leave to demo being able to tank.
The ability to off-tank certain caster mobs in certain fights, like they did in vanilla, or a fun gimmick for soloing old content. That's what I always thought it would be for. Who are these people that thought Warlocks would be tanking dungeons?

Thinking that the glyph meant warlocks would be actual tanks does seem like jumping to conclusions too early.But I'm equally shocked by the alternatives to that. So Blizzard wants warlocks to sacrifice one glyph slot, and all the dps that their main cooldown gives them... for the chance to off-tank if the tank dies, or on certain gimmick fights (that they haven't been doing for the last two expansions, and don't seem like they'll be doing on this one either)? Or is it meant for "extreme soloing" like hunters do? Or just for leveling?I honestly see no real alternatives completely grounded at this moment. People were excited, and are now severely disappointed, because the possibility of warlocks becoming real tanks, while really slim, sounded MUCH more fun than all of these other scenarios.

"that one glyph gave us all a glimmer of hope" And you took that glimmer like many did and ran with it. Well before anyone could actually try it out in Beta- where things can change drastically from build to build.
