Are we "leaders" anymore

Tanks and Healers are the leaders of the group, and they must be on the same page.


I agree.

As tank, I've handed the reins over to my betters before. But for the most part, if I so much as pull out my map, the whole damned group falls apart....

You have to tank, and know where the hell you're going too.

Nope.

Because at this point for everything bar a few pulls the healer isn't part of the book.

They're just the bookmark.

Helpful to have, but not needed if you just remember where you were.

When I tank I lead. When I'm not the tank, I let the tank lead unless he doesn't know wtf he's doing.

Thing is the tank has to control the adds, choses where the boss is, and if it moves, so he chooses the strat used. If the dps & healer aren't onboard, it's either going to work the tank's way anyways, or it's a wipe.

just "accidentally" tab to the stuff he should have pulled.


God you're one of those people. Most annoying thing ever when DPS decide how much a tank can handle. We're tanking, we know our damage intake not you, don't pull for us.

I remember someone calling tanks tour guides some months back. I think that is more accurate.

No one is really needed in the leveling instances, some just make it go smoother. Leading there is like trying to herd cats. Better off just dangling something shiny for them to follow. I wonder if sparklefever ever has issues getting them to follow?

I am the guy packing mobs into shiny deeps, that does not make me a leader.

LFR is just a mob mentality no one leads, sometimes someone pretends.

Heroics, everyone knows the drill due to the grinding that is done for LFR gear. Every now and then someone explains something to the new guy.

Edit: I did not answer the question.

There are no leaders in this game short of normal raids, and there leaders are not chosen by their toons.

While leveling and doing randoms I find most tanks to be egotistical self-centered prima donna a-holes.
