May 10th 2008 8:41AM I'm curious about how their caster tanking will work. Will they replace warlocks as caster tanks or will they tank at close range? Warlock tanks are needed because of close-range AoE, but if the DK can tank at range, warlocks wouldn't be needed as tanks anymore.
May 5th 2008 10:54AM Yeah, you're right, I forgot that Sunwell mobs don't crush at all. And yeah, rogue becoming physically immune goes into the category "itemization got out of control".
I'd still like to see a priest tank, though.

It looks to me like they're going to remove the ability to become passively crush immune (and therefore, physically immune) in WotLK. Take for example the buff all mobs in Sunwell has:
"The warm radiance of the Sunwell empowers the target, increasing its chance to hit increased by 5% and reducing the enemies' chance to dodge by 20%."
It was most likely put in to prevent becoming passively immune. But when the gear reset comes, Blizzard can prevent it from the start. If so, no more rogue tanks. Unfortunately, since "outside-the-box"-solutions are always fun.
Congratulations to her anyway! Now we just need to get a Priest to tank something....
