I'm only level 85 so this might seem a little early to be asking this, but I'm already thinking about later and trying to be prepared.
I've been playing my monk as Brewmaster since level 30-something and have been enjoying it very much. I don't plan to play her as anything else if I can avoid it.
Once I reach level 90 I definitely wanna try some raids. The question that arises is whether I can jump in as a tank right away, once I reach the iLvl requirement.
Should a tank have better gear than the minimum requirement? Is reading a guide for the encounters enough to take the responsibilities of a tank? Or should I play the encounters as DPS a couple of times to become familiar with the overall feel of the fights?
I know the last question is a little rhetorical. I guess I just want to know what your experiences were and what you would suggest.
