Like anyone else playing WoW for PvE, I've been busy instancing. The LFG tool makes it easy to find groups and as someone who hasn't had too much trouble finding them in general I can imagine this is a whole new ball game for those who did.
I have to share a funny comment someone made when asked "How many bad tanks have you had? (Lfg tool)"
In lower level instances, it's about 50/50. Most people trying to tank seem to be tank specced at least, but some have horrible gear and/or don't understand basic principles of tanking.
Okay....a tank in a lower level instance, in horrible gear and doesn't really know how to tank?
I heard someone say tanks should group as dps, in essence spending twice as long getting gear - because you need dps gear first then hope and pray the tank will let you roll alongside him for loot.
Of course if you spend time dpsing, you're not really getting any experience actually tanking.
Groups want experienced, knowledgeable, well-geared tanks. But how do you think they get that way?
