What is up with low lvl tanks?
It's a case of damned if we do and damned if we don't.
I set the pace of the instance run, not the DPS. If a DPS pulls, they tank it and I ignore them. When I play one of my healers, I do the same. Frequently I am on my druid healer and a friend is on her paladin tank and we work together. Retarded DPS types that pull on their own have a problem then. Many a time I have stood with a full mana bar and nothing else to do and just watched as some moron dies because he was impatient. My friend the tank does a /rofl at them as I always ask the same question: "So, how fast are we moving now with you dead?"
I made (out of boredom) a new warrior. I plan to tank level him until Cata releases, where he will be remade as a goblin. He will do quests, but will also level as protection. It has been since vanilla that I have leveled a warrior tank, and BC since I did a paladin tank. Obviously those are both VERY different now. I'm hoping things will work out nicely for my leveling and I won't be seeing many tards like the OP.
I'm leveling a goblin warrior (even tho I have an 80 and he'll be my first to 85) for a couple reasons. I love the warrior class. I love the low level aspects of the game (leveled several toons, just not as tanks) and the discovery of new things. I have one of every class that I desire to play already, so have to repeat if I want to level a goblin. Pookiebear will be my raid tank forever, but I think I'd like to have a "baby tank" just for fun. Since this is a game and games are for fun, this just makes sense to me.
