May 20th 2011 5:28PM It is curious that while the feedback on the forums has been overwhelmingly opposed to this that this article shows a slant towards somewhat positive reception to it. Even in Corath's blog, I didn't exactly get the feeling that the author thought it was an excellent idea, only that they could justify the cost.
Dec 16th 2010 4:59PM Good point Tristan. What I said assumes the tank is doing his job correctly.
Dec 16th 2010 3:21PM Oh, and seriously DPSers, set your tank as focus and display focus target if you have a unit frames mod that supports it, or at a bare minimum assist your tank. I understand there are AOE abilities, but there's no reason you should be single targeting a mob that no one else is.
Dec 16th 2010 3:18PM I rolled a tank when the expansion came out, and it's my first time tanking. I tried to be a good DPS on my other toons, waiting for them to build aggro a little bit, not pulling, trying to avoid face pulling etc. It amazes me how horribad some DPS can be as a tank, and even moreso how little they care about it.
So far tanking has been pretty rewarding, but I can see how tank burnout can happen.
