Let me suggest something in the game that you may enjoy. You said, "Sometimes Silka (my gryph and land mount) and I just fly/ride around and enjoy the pretty scenery." I also see on your profile that you have approximately 58% of the world explored. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/alexstrasza/Wolkenlaufre/achievement#97:a46
Therefore, I think that you might like trying for the explorer title.
It is a time-consuming, yet relatively easy and enjoyable task that will take you to every corner of Azeroth and Outland. At the end, you get to add "the Explorer" to the end of your name.
Lastly, let me also suggest that you join an active social guild. Just let them know that you are not interested in raiding but would enjoy the social aspects of the guild. My own guild raids fairly regularly, but I am not part of that, however, I enjoy interacting with them in all other aspects of the game. I see on your realm forums, that the guild Everlasting Salvation might be able to offer a fun social environment for you.
Best of luck,
popora on eu-lightbringer (H)
Jun 15th 2011 2:45AM I have recently leveled up a holy priest ONLY by using the dungeon finder. I have healed a lot of tanks in that process. One thing was clear. Gear mattered FAR LESS than knowledge of your class. Learn what your tanking abilities are and how to use them. The gear will sort itself out as you tank the dungeons.
Honestly, DK tanks in late 50's and early 60's felt OP compared to other tanks. However, by mid 60's and later, DK tanks evened out with other tanks (again from a healer's perspective). At this time, skill became the determining factor. Other tanks usually had lots of experience by the 60's, and I felt confident with them. However, many DK tanks often seemed to make newbie mistakes throughout the 60's.
Bottom line, spend more time thinking about your abilities and general class knowledge and how to actually apply it and less tine thinking about gearing.
Lastly, if you must think about gear. The only gear you might be useful outside what you'll get in the dungeons are as follows: Trinkets from early Northrend content from questing. Cataclysm greens on the auction house at level 78+ to get an early gear boost for preliminary cataclysm content.

Apr 13th 2010 7:48AM Yep, your comment mirrors my sentiment exactly.
Jan 11th 2010 10:04AM I think most didn't notice. Of the few who did, most, like yourself, probably felt that it wasn't important. It's not, however, I enjoy a little finger exercize.
Jan 11th 2010 8:51AM I don't think anyone else has posted about this so far. The title of this is a common mis-quote. The actual quote is "A rose by any OTHER name".
