Yes, even if demonology dps will be removed in the process.
Yes, but only implemented in an additional fourth spec.
Maybe, i'm interested but it may harm the class/game as a whole.
Maybe, i have no interest but more options are always good.
No, developer ressources should be invested elsewhere.
No, this is not the proper direction for the game/class.
Why stop at warlocks, why not mages, they can get a glyph and have tanking abilities?
hunters too, oh and shamans!
You go down that road, there is no coming back.
When Blizzard changed Death Knights to give them a proper tanking spec, they removed the ability for Unholy and Frost to tank, and for Blood to DPS. I like the change overall but, as a DPS Blood in WotLK, I was upset. Do you really want another change like that?
Also, if Blizzard implemented Warlock Tanks, they'd also have to implement Shaman tanks because they were also requested a lot, and some players acually managed to pull it off. Then, Hunters would be asking for a tanking spec, as well as Rogues and Mages. After that, healers would QQ about there obly being 5 healing and 10 tanking classes, so we would also get healing Death Knights with blood magic, Warriors with bandages, Blood Mages, Hunters shootong fruits and veggies at allies to heal them etc.
I. Like. To. Kill. Things.
I guess im down for Warlock tanks, as long as their damage is nerfed beyond shit when they are a tank. there's no logical reason to have a huge tank minion and still be able to put out the same dps. Massive reduction in damage to compensate for the tank minion... sure, i'm down with that. It's still a stupid idea... it's more stupid than shaman tanks or any other ideas people have suggested. Warlocks will be casters, deal with it, you want to tank... reroll.
Last thing we need are more specs. Game is already watered down enough. If locks get a 4th spec then everyone will want one, and we already have 5 classes that can tank.
Shamans- Frostshock rockbiter shields
Hunters- Say hello to your new main tank Cuddles the cat.
Mages- Buff that Iceward. Make that ice armor the shit.
Rogues- Combo points=longer lasting evasions! Kinda like how tanks are now with needing something to activate Shield block savage defense blah blah blah
New class Demon Hunter......Well hell you have Demon in your name and hunter so shouldnt you be able to be both tanks....Like cmon Cuddles can be main tank and I can be offtank with my demon range powers of immense whining.

UGH, I have to respond to this argument for a 2nd time in a few hours...
Shamans- again, viable argument, they should get an Earth based tanking spec. They almost deserve it as much as we do.
Hunters - Pet tanking is never, EVER a good argument. A Pet doesn't move or think properly, and it simply doesn't make any sense at all with the structure of this game.
Mages - No, just no.
Rogues - Oh, you mean Monks? Yeah, they already have combo points for evasion. Not going to happen again.
We're not looking to pet tank, bro. Also, our current tank form has the dps of a wet noodle. It would be buffed dramatically.

tanking nest for 5 sec isnt tanking teye, nor is kitting considered tanking, jsut casue u can survive more than other classes running away doesnt mean you are a tank.
Also we should get a tank spec and mages is "No, just no"
As Filth nicely posted, it's been a grand total of 5 or so bosses that we've been intended to tank, if we start including fights we've kited or tanked for a few seconds, then hell - hunters have been doing that since UBRS.
