Do you have more than one?

Tank toon!? Long story short I came back from along break recently. I am having a tough time trying to decide what my main should be. I played a bear all through cat and don't find it engaging at all anymore. I leveled a dk and hate the rune system. My pally has been shelved since BC. That leaves warrior or monk really. So I guess my question is what is the level of fun you have with each tank toon! Mine would be warrior>bear>pally>dk. I haven't played enough monk to form an opinion!

Oh god yes. I level about two tanks per expansion.

But you can find several versions of this topic all over the forum, with dozens of responses--no need to start a new thread here.

At the moment I have... four tanks at 90, but my Druid isn't in any way, shape, or form geared. DK is 88.

Not really interested in Guardian this expansion though. I might look into my Blood DK more if they get buffed next patch, since I don't think I gave it a fair rap. Next expansion, definitely gonna look at the kits of both those specs again though!

My favorite is Prot Warrior, followed pretty closely by Brewmaster. A bit behind that is Paladins; I am really annoyed at the fact that Protection Paladin damage is extremely lackluster with 0 Vengeance.

Mainly I love my Prot Warrior because of the playstyle. It's super predictable; yes, Rage is slightly RNG, but Rage is VERY easy to plan around with Unending Rage glyph and simply with having so many rage generators at hand. Everything I do has a noticeable impact, which is what I love the most. If I hit Shield Slam, it's gonna hit for a lot. If I hit Shield Block or Barrier, it's gonna stop a LOT of damage.

My Brewmaster, I enjoy a lot because there's so many different things to capitalize on. It's not just "get better Shield Block timing" or "hit your rage generators more," it's a load of smaller defensives that add up and make a Monk tank really damn good. Basically I feel like there's a nice progression in terms of getting better at Monk tanks, and it's a very polished tank spec.

I don't quite enjoy the changes to Prot Pally that they made from Cataclysm, but I do understand why they were made. I'm still very thrown off by ShoR being off GCD, and MoP Pally is definitely not a spec that I have picked up as easily as my Monk. I do feel like there's quite a bit I could work on to be a really good Pally tank though, which is pretty fun. The raid utility I can bring is just awesome.

It'd be a necro. It's not like this forum is slogged down by a bajillion new threads every day anyway.

I am really intrigued by brewmaster. But I am not sure if they are common or not like DKs flooding everything in wrath. I enjoyed my bear because there wearnt alot of us. That being said I am really torn between leveling a monk or making this guy my main.

I used to. In Wrath and Cata, I had a Pally and a DK. I used them for quick heroic queues (near the end of the expansion for Cata) but I didn't really like tanking much. I preferred to heal, but heal queues were too long.

Now I mainspec Brewmaster and I tried to level my Pally, but holy crap was it boring and slow in comparison. I'm just not gonna bother with any others because nothing compares.

Monk. Brewmasters aren't as common as DK tanks were back in the day because we're a lot harder to play well than they were when they were released. A good Brewmaster is a force to be reckoned with and a real rarity.

Let's see, there's this toon thats my main. I also have a Bear that's raid ready. My DK is also 90 but I havent bothered gearing him yet. Have an 85 warrior thats still stuck on my old server, which I might move here and level at some point. And then there's my lowbie Monk.

So yeah, I've got more than 1 tank, lol.

I don't like paying for server transfers when I can avoid it! I have a hard time leveling anything that isn't a tank. :[ In previous expacs, any tanks that made it to cap on whatever my primary server was at the time were all fully geared/gemmed/enchanted, but I've really let that slide with mists. There's enough to do that I don't feel the need to fully maintain a small army. (Also, brewmasters > everything else. :D )

Looks like I have a brewmaster slog coming up then. It's interesting how many of us have different tanks. I have not really burned out on it ever. My disc priest it WOTLK made it so I will never heal again haha

I have to be honest, for me it is a control issue. I hate waiting, so the instant dungeon queues appeal to me, and I also know that it is the least dependent of the roles on someone else in said dungeon.

The tank sets the pace, and as long as you are getting a modicum of healing, you can just keep on rolling. When I play my healer or dps classes, I am dependent on the tank most of the time, and I cannot stand that.

I'm not sure why people are saying Blood is nerfed :( it makes me cry... on the inside.

Seriously though? If I can find the time to get into raids, I'm often the last surviving... by a minute or two sometimes... >.>. If you can time yourself right... you can bs mechanics...

I dont have much experience with other classes as I only have my dk, mage and pallie up at cap, although... my pally is pretty decent, a lot more raid utility than my dk, but a lot less survival I find... You can throw out ONE decent heal every couple of minutes but... eh.

I like my slutty belf blood dk ^.^

I think they are talking about some H 25 man content this tier, but mostly they are talking about how DKs will not scale into the next tier hardmodes when bosses are just going to hit for so much that the DKs self healing will not overcome it. Nor will the shield. It just evaporates and the DK dies.

Yes I do. I have several paladins all tanks. This guy, an 85, a 62 and a 20. I have 2 prot warriors, 1 87 the other 40. 2 Blood DK's 1 is 90 the other is 83, and 2 Guardian Druids 1 90 the other 85.

I love the lore of the game so the multiples come from having at least one horde and one alliance.

Seriously. Level 90 of all five tanking classes and then some 88s chilling, waiting for -I guess- 5.3 to roll around.
