Is it on the same level as healing?
Is there a lot to learn?
I am not worried about the 5 mans, just the raids. They seem to have the hardest job when it comes to raids.
02/18/2013 07:41 AMPosted by RomanieThe only fight i've found on all of my tanking toons that takes more than 37% of your brain to tank raid-wise, is the Stone Guard. However, if you can grasp the concept of taunting Mob-A when Mob-B is overloading, you'll be quite fine.
Easy classes for tanking (great for new players) to the most challenging, in descending order.
(personal opinions may vary)
2. Death Knight
Keep in mind, no class is necessarily better than the other. It's all a matter of which you prefer in terms of a challenge when it comes to tanking. Individual results may vary. This is my opinion and should not be taken as written truth. Enjoy!
02/18/2013 07:51 AMPosted by HealustriousI will research. It just seemed like a lot of work, since I am always standing at a distance and really don't pay attention to what tanks are doing. I only look at the character bars and where I am standing.
Easiest class to possibly tank as (while leveling)- Paladin.
1) Throw Shield
3) Holy Wrath
4) Hammer of the Righteous
Do this until you get Shield of the Righteous, and then you get a little more DPS as an alternative to a quick self heal.

Warriors are the ones you don't want to get caught on with a bad healer. They are the only tanks without a self heal (except second wind).02/18/2013 07:53 AMPosted by HealustriousI hate healing Druids and Monk Tanks. I won't put that nonsense on other healers. Since there are a lot of bad healers out there, and I am sure this is just guaranteeing a lot of wipes.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
