Best tanks playing on truewow

#1 » Post by Protective » 19 Jun 2011 10:38

As myself being a tank I'm quite curious who players think of as being the best tank. Please show us some players for Warrior, Paladin, Death Knight and Druid, both horde and ally. I won't make one because I don't meet a lot of tanks in the RDF ^^.

There is no best tank, you either do it right or wrong. If you do it right your threat and survival is based on gear.

Hmm.., depends a bit, some tanks take over aggro easily and every tank has it's own method on keeping aggro and doing dps. DPS and healer may find it easier to heal/DPS with "That" tank instead of "This" tank.

To be a good tank you must know what to do in encounters. What to do to prevent ppl from take aggro or from getting hit by something. You must not fail at positioning the boss and you must know how to keep your threat high.

Warrior: Fenris
Deathknight: Twoflower
Paladin: Cirus was good even though I dont like him much.
Druid: Happymeal... Sorry for all the other tank druids but I've never seen a druid tanking ICC besides myself.
You can't hit what you can't see.

Personally I think there is a strong link between tanking and dungeon leader?

Preferably, the tank should be dungeon leader as he/she is usually the first person to confront enemies, take threat, etc. Thus in the general hierarchy of running a dungeon, tanks should be the preferred leader through the dungeon.

That's my two cents. I've been an off-tank at most, both with Arms Warrior and Feral Druid. ;)
