I'd argue either a baseline ability, or open it up to all three specs. Possibly (preferably) both.


Unfortunately, that's a hell of a lot of work. Demo tanking is build on top of Demo DPS, and it makes heavy use of it's unique resource and spec skills. Copy/pasting the glyph and applying it to Affliction and Destruction won't work, because they're just too different. They'd have to build a completely unique tanking system for both specs.

They need to do something though. It's either going to be completely impractical to rely on (meaning, a complete waste), or you're going to force Warlocks into Demonology.

25man has two Claws to deal with on opposite sides of the room and someone has to soak some damage and not die.

And a second tank would probably be a better option given the Arms Warrior's low DPS and the ability to trade off Zon'ozz himself with CDs.

You do realize that Arms is currently one of the top DPS specs in the game, right?

well, i read the Ghostcrawler announcement that Warlocks would not, in fact, be tanks.
I am feeling kind of depressed :(

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

Isnt warlock tanking just like beast mastery pet tanking for hunters? If the group needs them to fill the roll i say let them try might be interesting, but don't make them another complete tanking class it would ruin the demo spec.
