Jan 4th 2010 1:04PM I completely understand the problem, and it's not just heroics. I get it all the time in low level dungeons. My main is a feral druid. I get asked all the time to tank for the group, but everyone always rushes in ahead of me, which makes it very difficult to gain aggro. I had two mages complain one time, "Why couldn't I tank and heal at the same time, you are a druid?" Yes, I'm a druid, but I'm not a miracle worker. My guildie and I created hunters just so we could do dungeons on our own without having to pick up other players to make the group. It has worked wonderfully, and we get the instances done without the stress.
I have only played WOW for a little over a year, and have already experienced much of the frustration of trying to help people by joining their group, and regretting my good will just minutes into the instance. I get double stress, because I am geared to tank, but can also do a decent job at healing. I've experienced both sides of the frustration, and I have to admit I have sat back, and let mages and warlocks reap the punishment of pulling aggro. I think if more players took the time to not only learn their own roles, but to learn all the roles of the group they would understand and appreciate what tanks and healers go through.
