    How hard is it to tank LFR?

    Do you think I can tank LFR with 491 DPS gear and sword/shield as warrior in prot spec? I'm trying to gear up abit for prot and i don't need dps gear from LFR.

    Yes, easily
    Tanking lfr is about as hard as dps'ing it

    or you could just be ultra lazy, queue as DPS, switch to prot spec and lets the loot flow.

    I thought you got loot based on the spec you queued as?

    Its easy enough alright, if you're 491 you're bound to be raiding with a guild. Take a healer or two from your guild along for quick queue and good heals and everything will be fine

    Ooh and also please post your DPS on Blade Lord in HoF if you're tanking in full dps gear! Will be sick :P (DR+Bloodbath ftw)

    Tanking LFR is a joke TBH.

    I MT for our guild, so we have been having to pug a tank for the past 2 weeks as our OT had a death in the family. Every single pug seems to have only done LFR.....so when we go to pull stone guards they have no idea what to do (even after a lengthy explanation). You can literally ignore all the boss mechanics on most fights. Stone guard: Stack them up at the bottom of the stairs and solo tank the encounter, its ridiculous. I have done LFR twice and will not do it again because it is ridiculously dumbed down.

    Not unless they changed it very recently.

    It really depends on the healers you get .. but if you take a lot of damage and die, people might inspect and you will most likely be kicked.

    I must admit I havent really checked the gear the tanks in LFR are usually having but I guess it can't be all that good.

    Take hand. Smash hand on keyboard. In question take face. Done. (That is the answer to the question on difficulty)

    I tanked all of the second wing of HoF in 489 ish DPS gear with a normal Elegon tank trinket on, it can get very spiky/close but you should live, even if you aren't the best tank. I did #3 damage on Ambershaper...
