Sadly the trade off that we made when moving to a lower pop server was in the non existent level of play that the players here do have.
Pugging normal mode just does not happen.
On the occasions we ask the only responses will be from 515 ilvl players who have only completed SOME LFR as far back as cataclysm.
So, no thank you, and on to the next refusal.
I would rather say tanks moved on to healer and dps. After the 5.4 changes I stopped playing lfr (and flex) on all my 3 tank classes since I find it utterly boring now. Instead I play on my dps and healer alts.
Same goes for heroic dungeons, actually especially heroic dungeons. The 1/n vengeance change made dugeons unbearable. Tanking dungeons with 5-10k vengeance while you have dps geared with 550+ ilvl is just dreadful. On my main that is a tank I sometimes still do dungeons for valor points. But then I queue as a dps/healer in tank spec and just do 50k dps in tank spec, since tanking is so boring I would rather take the longer queue timer. I also completely stupped tanking dungeons on my tank alts.
The 1/n vengeance formula is also causing me to dread the next expansion, as it will make leveling as a tank, and doing any daily quests / grinds completely dreadful. It is honestly making me consider rerolling from tank to my resto durid or hunter 100% due to the 1/n vengeance formula. I have talked with other tank friends and they think the same.
If you want one bad guy why there are even less tanks now than before, I would look at the 1/n vengeance formula and reverting that.
I am so tired of seeing terrible people, being admired, for being terrible people.
The days of standing in the bosses crotch and just taking hits while hoping you have enough stam are long gone! Active tanking is FUN and tryign to min max your dps on top of that just adds another layer of fun!
