Blizz should be commended on making people want to tank now.

You can have 3 other perfect players to roll with but if you have to LFD one random, you risk frustration, even with the heroics being as easy as they are. It's hilarious how bad some people can be.

Entry level is far easier than it used to be, so yes it is. Good tanks are still good though.

Not a bad thing. More tanks in queue = better, which is probably why they did it.

It's exactly why they did it. And what do you mean entry level?

Anyway, so far it mostly seems like they gave some buffs to certain things for tanks, and made them less rotation intensive so that they could focus on resources and fight mechanics more than rotation.

Oh:

They upped the dps tanks do for all tank classes, making you feel more important.
They made tanks even more durable.
They made tanking require less effort on rotations, more effort on mobility, resource management(runes, mana, etc..), and more effort on fight mechanics. It makes fights fun and less about rotations and numbers.


Well they didnt up the DPS. Tanks actually do less dps than they used to with no help. However the lack of a cap of any kind on vengeance means theoretically if you are taking big enough hits tanks can go up to infinite dps...

I hit 100k ap boost from vengeance on the barrier/bomb/add boss in the Niuzao Temple dungeon, ended up at 70k single target on my blood dk.
I couldnt hear anything over how awesome it was.

I've been tanking with my Paladin since Wrath, I hated what they did with Holy Power and stopped tanking in Cata and now I love tanking again! I dont feel power starved anymore.
