Jun 13th 2008 5:18AM Well, I do play a prot paladin who has tanked in Kara several times. But I have to say that taking a tanking role requires something more than just joining the group in a dps role. As a tank you set the pace at which you go through the instance and by setting the order in which the mobs are killed, you have to decide which way the Crowd Control is handled. That does take some experience and requires some knowledge of the instance as well.
Because of that I find myself shying away from actively seeking Pugs to tank for and I can imagine that other people feel the same way.
