To Homogenize or not to Homogenize
Blizzard has taken a stance that they do not wish every tank to be the same. Unfortunately every cross class disagreement occurs specifically because certain tanks will be or are favoured in certain situations. The only solution to certain tanks being better in some situations then others is to homogenize them.
Now I ask you do you really care as a warrior if a DK can do the same job as you? Do you really care a Paladin that a druid can do the same job as you? I can’t speak for everyone else, but the only time I care is when I can’t do something that another class can do. If Blizzard truly believed in “bring the player not the class” they would have made it so that all 4 tanking classes where equally good choices for every fight.
Now I don’t mean that every tank class should be “exactly” the same, that’s just silly. They should however be a lot closer together then they currently are.
One class should not be pigeon holed as an off-tank class, an AoE tank, a trash pull tank, burst damage tank, or a magic resist tank. All 4 tanks should be able to perform all these roles interchangeably with equal success. One tank should not be the obvious choice for a certain fight over another.
I can only speak for myself in this, which is why I want to know other people’s points of view. Do you care if other tank classes can do the same job as you?
