I can sort of see what you mean when it comes to brand new players starting from the ground up with little to no help or advice from experienced players - a player who doesn't even really know what a tank is or what he/she does as a tank. However, from your original post, it just sounded like you were complaining about not being able to grab DPS talents as a tank personally (when you said "I'll jump on that" I figured you meant that YOU would be unhappy about it if YOU leveled a tank) and not in relation to new players. Even still, I think the types of players you describe in your response will be pretty few and far between as I don't think most brand new players would start off leveling a tank anyway (for many of the same reasons you gave). Beyond that, Blizzard's philosophy about tanking is that it can pretty much be done by any tanking class no matter what the spec until it comes to the higher up content - so I still don't find it to be much of a concern.

Care to expand on why tanks will be nonexistent? I don't know many players who will dip into two or so different talent trees as they level - I usually look to max out whichever one I've started in no matter what role/class I play. Also, if I'm leveling a tank with the intention of tanking, I'm not dipping over into other talent trees for added DPS anyway until I've maxed out the tanking tree I'm currently focusing on - I'd just have to wait even longer to get the juicy tanking talents down the line. Tanks currently do pretty decent DPS as it is and they're definitely viable when it comes to leveling solo. The only people this change hurts are those who like to try "hybrid" builds - which weren't really going to be terribly viable anyway when mastery came into effect.

If gnomes get Paladins, I'm faction changing my Dwarf pally to a Tauren. It would be an abomination. ABOMINATION, I SAY!!
Jun 29th 2010 3:27PM I'd be surprised if they chose to release the Ruby Sanctum raid when not everyone will be able to experience it. My guess is that they'll release it on a maintenance day that doesn't see a good chunk of servers down for 24 hours.
Jun 25th 2010 5:48PM We did watch the damn video. And we're complaining about "every single aspect" of the video because every single aspect of the video was poorly executed. I don't wish ill for the people who made it or anything (that would be trolling) but I do think they need to refine their ideas before putting them to paper...er...video. This video took effort, so kudos to them for trying – I just hope they can take the criticism and learn from it.
Jun 25th 2010 12:48PM This one's a miss. It just needs better execution all around.
Jun 25th 2010 9:24AM C'est la vie. All I'm saying is that I like your Photoshops. And I've seen quite a few 'shops in my time...
Jun 24th 2010 5:14PM I'm disappointed at the lack of something hilarious photoshopped into the picture on page 1.

Well I was, but the charming young lads in the video already cut them off, apparently. Honestly, that line was just disturbing and unnecessary.
