Shaman tank spec

General Discussion
Would anyone here be opposed to shamans getting a fourth spec to tank with? I am thinking something involving alot of earth spells...

Any ideas?
Do people honestly not remember shaman tanks?
with the tanking threat changes i have become a tank in recent weeks ; )

I'm all for it.

Shaman has major representation in all elements but earth, would make sense for an earth based tank. It'd probably be the trigger to make me go shaman if it were to happen.

lol same.
I'd wager Shaman tank is one of the most desired fourth specs.

Right up there with a Warlock whose demon does the tanking and a ranged rogue.
If I could tank as a Shaman, I would have no reason to play anything else.

As it stands, the only reason I don't play one is because it can't tank, and my raid needs me to tank.
Yes. a 4th, earth based tank spec with threat and mitigation totems would fit the class perfectly.
Shaman lost it's tank spec long ago.. yes, shammies used to tank back in BC, I can't say I remember when we lost tank spec, I'd guess Wrath?
I'd love to be a real shaman tank. And be accepted as one.
Ehhhh, I'm leaning no, unless Blizzard can make them very distinct. To me, it just blends a bit too much with how I'd expect Druids to perform.
