The biggest difference was things... actually started to hurt at this point. I finally had to really heal, and it was a big shock. Honestly, it was the first time I wasn't able to heal through stupid.
I hadn't even thought about how much harder bosses and trash would hit. My friend (a Monk tank) and I have been two-manning whichever dungeons are level appropriate, and he rarely requires more than a Riptide to keep him up, unless he pulls half the instance. Thanks for the warning. :)
Nothing will one shot your tanks except not following the mechanics.
I remember the fights being fairly straightforward, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to through DBM back in (and maybe watch a few videos of the dungeons, to refresh my memory).

Probably not. I'll be running dungeons until 80, head through Vashj'ir for 80-82, Cata dungeons until 85, Jade Forest until 86, then questing/dungeons to the level cap. I may try to hit Hour of Twilight when this toon becomes eligible for them - I always wanted to know how the healers handled Murozond, Echo of Baine, Echo of Jaina, Mannoroth.
Was funny the other day I accidentally queued for an end time heroic instead of panda normal, was a nice reminder on how much easier panda dungs/heroics are now than what cata was haha. Kinda miss actually having to heal in a dungeon though.
I noticed Blizzard tends to alternate between easy dungeons and hard dungeon with every expansion... Since Cataclysm was a bit brutal (especially at the beginning, from what I've heard), and MoP has been easy, maybe the next expansion will make you heal again. :P
