Wanting to try tanking...
When I'm in a dungeon or raid, I'm a healer, generally speaking. I don't like DPSing in dungeons, at least as the classes I've tried so far. Still, every now and then I get the urge to try something different.
I decided I'd like to give tanking a try. Specifically, a new class, since I imagine jumping in at level 85 with a full Pally tanking toolset and not a clue how to use it would be a lot harder than starting with the low-level dungeons.
Anyway, my question comes down to, for those of us brand new to tanking, is there a guide somewhere (I've looked, but may have missed it), that gives a general idea of how each of the tanking classes play? (I mean, I've looked at the class specific guides, but most are about 'use this ability, then that ability', they don't really do much to explain the benefits and drawbacks of the tanking classes compared to each other, at least if you don't know yet what this or that ability does. For examples, are DKs more survivable at the cost of being complex to play?
