Poll: Your Favourite Tanking Class

90 Pandaren Monk

So, my fellow tanks. Which class do you enjoy the most and why?

Currently, monks are by far my favourite. They are incredibly active and engaging and keep me on my toes.

In second place would be Death Knights, and admittedly I've never done any competitive tanking with any other class.

What about you?

Bears, oh my!

Love the new FR. Love the fact you're never waiting on runes/energy/holy power and since they've changed the way rage is used you never go into a fight worried about how you're going to build rage so you can attack and get aggro.

I played Warrior and DK at 85, but I gotta say Monks. Followed closely by Warrior.

Paladins. No other tanking class is fabulous enough. /hairflip

Death Knight. I've played a bear, warrior, and DK competitively and for sure feel like DK is the most fun. Managing Death Strike and our plethora of CDs has a much more active feeling than that of the other tanks and is therefore more fun for me.

I have not tried monks.

You know... (and sorry for the derail a bit here) but i've seen a couple votes for bear here.

That got me thinking... that with 3 90's i don't think i've ever actually ran with a pug bear tank this expansion. Granted, my warrior is only prot, so that doesn't count, but on my pally and my mage i can think of plenty of monks and dks, a number of paladins and warriors, but... no... no bears spring to memory in 5 mans...

That strikes me as odd honestly. And, strangely enough, makes me want to level my 85 druid lol.

(p.s. personal vote is warrior this expansion so far. I love my pally but i'm loving ret and holy more than prot for whatever reason. Being a ping-pong ball of death on my warrior never gets old :P)

Bear tanks are fine, we have one in our raid group, but they don't have the active mitigation of the other classes. At least that's how it appears to me. I enjoy haste tanking now since we actually have things to do, but I still prefer Ret overall.

Pally is definitely my favorite. I like pretending I'm Captain America.

Ug so terrible they're tanking is, 2 short cds coupled with like 6 longer ones and one that can reset. feels so clunky.

I'll keep my mangle, lac, x, lac, mangle rotation.

Mooooonk.

I can roll, I can summon a FSKING LIGHTNING TIGER, I blow the minds of all those people who think we suck when I show them just how immortal I am, I can bubble my raidmates with the sheer power of my fist, and I make rogues cry by taking their gear.

Did I mention LIGHTNING TIGER?
