And yes warlocks literally only require a couple more abilties and tuning and they would be viable tanks.

    Also the only way balancing a tank into dps is easier is if they don't bother with making sure it is balanced in every scenario, so it'll either suck so bad that it is literally useless, it'll be broken as shit, or it'll be just like demonology was for warlocks this tier, not horrendous but literally no reason to play it.
    different in terms of rotation and a few abilities changing then yes it is different. but it uses the same core abilities I.E. devastate, shield slam, revenge. where as druid had different resources and shared only a few abilities (mangle). someone has to be the first.

    as for an inch away from tanking:

    Honestly, the Crusader in Diablo is a great example of DPS tank.. I know its not far from home, but they're NAILING it with that class.

    I know Warriors have generally been pretty in-line with the Barbarian class ( i'm not called cyclonus just because it was a transformer ) and heroic leap felt just right.

    If they ever did a paladin dps shield spec I think they should consider Falling Sword in WOW. You're pretty much a FF Tactics Lancer! So awesome.

    That would be cool but I think really hard to implement in a game like wow. At least not the character. I like the idea of having a falling sword though. I guess Execution Sentence basically does this, but I was thinking a faster version.
