Is it time to kill tanking? {WoW}

Aug 30th 2011 1:58PM I have several varities of tank. I've leveled all 4 tanking classes, to at least 80. I think that another tanking class would be good, but it wouldn't solve the problem.
Personally, enhancement shamans would be a logical dual-wielding tank class with minor change, mostly able to be done, I think, through new glyphs.

The real problem with tanks in CTA (call to arms), and LFR, is that the game is so complex that tanks have much more to do than just run instances all the time.
Besides guild and raid responsibilities most tanks I know have maxed 2 professions and, at least cooking. There isn't time to level the other skills that are need in game and tank.

When I start my weekly 7 runs, I usually run right through them in a day. Since Molten Front came out I spent most of my time grinding rep for the "free" gear. Nothing in the instances came close to the stuff I was earning. But the grind takes so much time that at the end of it, I was either too tired to do CTA's or I had other toons to "care" for.

I admit that the extra loot, cash and "bag" are good incentives for me but not enough to overcome the rep grind for "free" gear. And then there doesn't seem to be any way to tell if the "random" CTA you signed up for is actually "random". On my warrior I have never not received the extra loot bag when I sign up for a random CTA by myself.
However, on my bear, I have received 2 bags for several dozen runs. I expected the bags would show up in the mail later but no.
Finally I submitted a ticket, waited and it turned out that the "random" group I had CTA'd for was not considered "random". Turns out the group I ended up tanking for had been together for a couple of instances and so my inclusion did not count as being "random".

Cata H's are easier to tank for since most people are just doing it for JP and are "overgeared", Troll Hs are harder because there are still a lot of groups out there that don't know the fights or are undergeared. There's almost nothing a tank can do at that point.

Is it time to get rid of tanking, maybe. What do you replace the tank first model with? That's a trickier question.

Ask the Devs Round 9 mitigates your tanking questions {WoW}

Jun 14th 2011 8:48AM I don't think we need a NEW tanking class, but I don't think it would be hard to convert Enhancement Shaman to a tanking class.
Shaman should, in my mind, be a druid-like class with heals (awesome), rdps and tank/mdps.
