This poster hit it right on the head. Theres two thing that bother me to warrior tanking.But what happens after you get that initial burst off and the pally has still managed to outthreat you?
2.) raid leaders that ride the paladin tip without acknowledging class mechanics. And realizing bad tanking.
So here is what I mean by this. I tank side by side exclussively with a paladin on my server. His name is Abuz and we play on the Thorium Brotherhood server (yes an RP server lawlz away but havent found a serious place to transfer to).
I am happy to tank side by side with him. Even though his threat far exceeds mine he knows when to back off. And when to come forward. Everyone understands how tautn works now. Most of these bosses are tauntable. So threat is not an issue in gapping. If your RL is telling you your threat doesn't compare to a paladin. And you are trading on mobs and he out threats you or rips it off of you. You need to bring this to your raid leads attention. Because he is either....
1.) Pulling an epeen contest and out threating you intentionally.
2.) Doesn't understand tanking dynamics and is threat throwing all the damn time.
3.) Wants to be number one tank and has tunnel vision to all other priorities.
Tanking with more than one tank requires those tanks to realize thier strengths and weaknesses. The have to know when to taunt, when to move, when to threat, when not to threat, when to pull from the other, when to back off. If your tanking partner doesn't understand this or won't. Then the issue is primarily but not exclusively thier fault. And even more so on the raid leads fault for not understanding wtf he's doing when it comes to tanking dynamics with mutliple tanks.
