If the latest PTR build hits live fistweavers may give them a run for their money, but not right now.
I also picked disc over holy, despite holy's higher damage, because holy doesn't have higher damage if it has to heal; where disc will be healing just fine while doing damage. 50k DPS means 50k HPS (more actually, but eh), which is more than enough for any 5 man pull outside of maybe some entire rooms, where it could simply be supplemented by no GCD mitigation abilities like power infusion and barrier.
"Why make trillions when we could make... billions??"
As a Monk Tank, I prefer a Monk Healer. Renewing Mist works amazing with Stagger, and Ox Guard works great with Fistweaving.
Also its cool to see a MW and a BrM together on the front lines doing Kung Fu.
I prefer a Healer that goes along with my "unique" way of playing my Warrior Tank.
Step 1: Scream loud SPARTAAAAAAA !!!
Step 2: Charge into the next mob grp., taunt a second grp. and jump into the third.
Step 3: Leave it to the Healer to keep you alive
OT: When I'm tanking with my DK I mostly prefer holy priests because of their insane dmg output,
when I'm not on my DK I prefer Dics because they still have very high dmg output and heal at the same time.
What Rehja said.
Constant trash pulls as long as the healer keeps pace its fine. Also pulling loads of trash gives me more dps and a reason to use defensive cooldowns.
I am going to choose the option of don't care what class. As long as they are good, mind you my blood DK needs stuff all in the way of healing, to the point where the last heroic I did the healer was specced shadow the whole way and barely needed to stop DPSing to heal... awesome group that one. Nice and fast run, the way it should be
I think a better poll would be HEALERS: What tanks do you prefer? which in my case the answer again is don't care as long as it's NOT a Monk. Decent, non squishy as hell monks are rare in LFG it seems :/

The same reason I like doing CM with those, they're ever-going
Well this thread is being trolled hard.
Personally I take a class that can dps well, and is good at PvP healing. Since pve healing is really all the same.
I usually queue as Healer, go in boomkin spec and I end up tanking most of the time aswell because I outgear the poor tank. when tanking on my DK I would prefer a healer in dps spec aswell.
I've never really played a tank, but the only time my druid tanked (in bear form and all) was in Wailing Caverns way back in early WotLK. A priest I had then, and that went smoothly. We were overgeared and were a bit too high level for the place, but it still counts, right?
The one that keeps me alive.
As long as the healer knows what they're doing and can keep up with me (chain pulled a lot when I use to play), they can heal with a fishing pole for all I care.
