Did you guys tanked the same mobs? for the same amount of time? how it can be a valid form to know who is best? are you gearing for avoidance or the mindless stamina stacking? did you tanked more mobs than him? did he steped down his agroo to let you take more dmg?Originally Posted by select20
It should be noted that in general, Paladins will take less damage to begin with due to shield-blocking mechanics.Originally Posted by Deathcold
Stick with it. Everyone gets hit with the nerfbat and buffed back to the begining. Its the evolution of this game. DK's will be on top again as the all around go to. It's blizz's golden child.
And as far as staying "loyal" to your class...
Your a DK guy. Nothing loyal about that.

But! most of the times a good raidleader will pick Skill and tanking methods if the tank has some standard gear and will not pose problems for spike dmg.
You're pissed on what an individual did, that doesn't mean the rest of the dk's will be replaced as you were as MT's..
QQ door that way ------>
Speaking for morality in economics is like fucking for virginity.
I think the biggest problem with paladin tanks is that we can hold aggro as good as anyone else, we have health pools like druids, and we don't take alot of damage. Hmm and we do alot of damage when we have multiple targets.
The problem with a DK tank is that they take way too much damage, but they can hold aggro just as good as a paladin. But with all the people that were playing warlocks and hunters that switched to a DK cause they couldn't play the class is the biggest problem with the DK's atm. I'm not saying we are smarter people then DK's. Every class has noobs that play it. Just right now the DKtard has replaced the Huntard.

Pally tank here
Last week we were missing our warrior, and since I'm my guild's currently best geared player, much less tank, we decided to have the DK who basically gets the tank loot the warrior and I don't want (but gets to bid mainspec on dps gear) co-tank heroic NRB with me.
Long story short, they did fine and we don't even have TotGC on farm (haven't killed twins yet)
By personal experience....expect more wipes using DK tank than other tanking classes
being the main issue...
LACK OF SHIELD!

DKs have a higher Dodge chance, can gain 10% max HP every 20 seconds (through Death Strike) and also increase the amount of thier EH/Healing done to them by a fair amount every minute (through VB).Originally Posted by Malmsteen
You'll learn the raiding IQ drops the easier it is to get gear outside of raids.
New raid leaders pick up the charge and use Recount as their gospel, their pathway to clearing a run. It's obviously not the best way to do it, but it's becoming the most common.
I'd say explain your wants to the guild leader, or raid leader. If they just say "QQ", /gquit that POS guild and find one that will appreciate you.
DK's do indeed take more dmg, but they have many other pluses.
And don't listen to people like Nightcinder. That's the first sign of being jealous there's so many DK's that he can't roll one.

Your GM is an idiot for trying to pull something like that off, and unless the replacement he got is really worth his weight, your guild will soon start to suffer because of it. (Of course your GM will not know why, either, and then /gquit for a better guild.)
As everyone else has said, tanking mechanics are very different between the two classes, and if your GM (and you for that matter...) don't know this, you've got bigger problems on your hands.
