For many year I've not really given a rat's ass about tank jobs. Simply because I thought they were dark soulless husk. There is a very damn good reason for it. DPS. You piss me off so god damn much. It's one thing if you're not in a dungeon and you're just messing around with pulls. But I'm starting to see why DPS is called "Dirty DPS." From my old viewpoint as a Healer, things were very black and white. All I did was heal things and not really pay mind to what people did. As a tank that view is flipped upside down and put into full contrast. You really get to see who is pulling their weight on the mobs and who is slacking, you get to see who is going to piss you off at the beginning of a dungeon. Just from their actions. I've taken tanking up and by god it has given me some serious clarity in terms of dealing with the player base. Tanks have it rougher in the update. We pretty much have to keep our mouths shut and ears open, or we'll be voted the hell out of the instance. Ran Halatalii today and it took every ounce of my being not to cuss a single DPS out, why? Because they kept trying to pull with Scathe. Didn't give me much time to mark, let alone let them know how I tanked. It got even more annoying and had me twitching when they decided to be cute and cast cancel every time I went to pull. That just irked me, since I didn't know if they were going to accidentally slip up and tag a mob, then I end up having to clean up the mess because they want to be funny. Now from my own perspective tanks have to deal with the s**t DPS does in DF simply because you'll look bad if you let someone die for their own stupidity. Having to tell people to not run ahead and hold their god damn hands when trying to tell them which mobs to hit when there is clearly a large number marked 1 2 3 etc etc over a mobs head. I now see why tanks are so bitter and angry. Because it's the sheer amount of stupidity people bring to the table and then hand it over to you like it's alright, I honestly want to say I am SORRY if I've ever bad mouthed someone as a tank. I really do, the job isn't easy and it's sure as hell not forgiving.
