A question regarding tanks (to the healers)

Bad Brewmasters are the worst tank to heal. And for some reason, there are an awful lot of bad Brewmasters out there, bad being those who can't seem to shuffle or use any of their myriad cooldowns.

I've gotten several in the past couple of weeks (boosted 90s) that thought they could just spin their way through the entire instance and never use their cooldowns.

They died.

A lot.

DK tanks are my favourite to queue with, I rarely have to heal them. Druid and Paladin tanks aren't so bad either, if they play it right. The worst in my opinion is a Brewmaster. Only once have a had Brewmaster tank that I didn't have to heal the !@#$ out of, and it was only cause she had that legendary cloak AND that boa 90-100 weapons.

But like Elyssrya said, if you're not an idiot, all goes just fine.

Brew masters are by far the most squishy unless well played.

DK's can be unpredictable but well played ones are almost unkillable.

Warriors just don't seem to take spike damage even badly played ones.
Paladins are almost as easy to heal as warriors.

Blood DK's make me wanna scream. Sometimes monks.

When I see bears or warriors, I am happy.

Pallys...sure, w/e.

"Fools rush in where angels fear to tread" it is said. A WoW alternative would be, "Tanks rush in where healers are slow to follow"; meaning they charge or use a speed buff that I can't match and pull the whole damn lot at once, die because they have no heals or dps backup and then yell at the healer because of course it's our fault.

Too many tanks wanna rush through instances like Speedy Gonzales on crack and get in a tiff if you want to actually gather loot or skin a few hides.

Usually brewmaster players don't know how to push buttons os something like this, so I hate healing them.


The main issue I ever run into for LFR/Flex is that they don't know how to utilize their self healing through the orbs they drop. There's so much healing literally sitting at their feet.

Shuffle is a must as well.

gotta love those ret pallys that think they can tank without a shield or changing spec. Just smile and say, "You're too squishy"

I ret tank with a polearm <3 I'm the worst though. The key to success is low expectations and getting carried by disc priests.

I was hiding in the corner from the scary green guy. You can have my BoP once every 5 minutes though. You deserve it. Not those nasty mages though.

At max level, geared rets destroy 5-man heroics as tanks.

I tank as a windwalker all the time, actually.
