Level your monk and roll your way across battlefields.

Roll? Pfft. Chi torpedo all the way. You too can be M. Bison.

Really though, chi torpedo can do a surprising amount of healing with vengeance, I plan to use it on some fights when the raid is stacked and taking damage and I'm not tanking something. (epicenter on Feng, for example)

I can't speak for PvP though, my only PvP experience this expansion has been Sha of Anger, which was more an exercise in lag as about 100 players duked it out along with a raid boss that spawns a million adds.

You act like monk tanks are OP like DKs were...

DK for pve all the way, SOOOO OP.

I don't pvp much on this toon though because getting in somewhere as the FC is hard these days, and I'm never liked melee in pvp. I would imagine that any of them would be great but if I were to pick one based on pvp alone it'd probably be Warrior or Druid for their mobility or utility. Paladins seem kinda short all-around right now but maybe I just don't know. (Haven't pvp'd since MOP dropped yet).

DK or Warrior IMO. Would you like more buttons to hit your opponent with or more buttons to survive with?

DKs are awkwardly tuned right now, since they can easily sacrifice survivability for damage, and conversely flip it around and have insane survivability through self-healing. They are incredibly versatile right now, and excel in both PvE and PvP. I am slightly biased though, because I do prefer the more aggressive decision making of Blood DKs to the other tank specs.

It baffles me that monks can't Kamehameha.

Or Super Saiyan.

I was sure those references would be in there somewhere.

I have a warrior I rolled up back in vanilla, several race changes later and he's an 85 worgen instead of undead.

I also have this DK, and a paladin, etc, at 85.

Right now I' am leaning towards the DK for my tank character. I enjoy the spells, the armor, the AoE tanking capabilities, and the overall feeling of the character while questing/grinding; I tanked on him in Cata a little (before I quit) and enjoyed it. The warrior is okay as well, and seems to be really blowing people up in PVP, but I'm not sure on my choice. The warrior is sentimental to me, I played him (like I said) since Vanilla as a MT and PVPed to rank 11 or 12 back in the day, and I've always come back to him for at least part of each expansion.

I have a warlock for my pure DPS character, I'm going to level him AND a tank to 90 and see what I enjoy more in MOP. But I also cannot decide on my tank class, and I want to have a good PVP offspec.
