Tanking Without the Tools the Environment was Designed for.

I had a post in my mind about the problems with tanking in the current environment.  Wrath was designed around the AoE, gather them up and burn the hell out of them concept.

Cataclysm encounters are going back to the more traditional, crowd control, marked target, focus fire kind of encounters that came before Wrath.  The encounters will be designed around that.

No problem, right?

Well, the problem is, to get us away from our AoEing ways, they hit our AoE abilities with the nerf bat pretty hard.  I just picture in my mind the first pull in ICC with all those skellies running all over the place that keep spawning until everyone crosses the threshold.  Yah, I’m really looking forward to that.

Anyway, 3B explains it so much better than I can, so go read his post on it.

“I’m working on Bear Tanking tips pre-Cataclysm”

It’s a great read, go check it out.
