Im sorry, but there are NO tanking shortage.Originally Posted by DG
There's just an over abundance of geared tanks that only play for their guild, or they just don't tank for random groups.
Why not tank for random groups? Please pick one or more reasons in the following list:
As a tank, I don't do random groups because...
[_] I'm geared up already, so I don't need anything from heroics or the random pug raids.
[_] I'm not in the mood to drag people or carry them through stuff.
[_] I'm not interested in wasting time with people I don't know.
[_] I'm not going to attempt X instance/raid with people I don't know what they know about the place.
[_] I'm not going to risk paying many repair bills outside my guild group.
[_] I'm not going to use my consumables with random people
[_] I'm already helping people I know to gear up, I don't need random people taking loot from them.
[_] I'm being carried to get geared up by my friends, I don't need random people taking my loot.
[_] I don't pug.
[_] I don't want to get random A holes.
[_] I don't want to get random ninjas (or pirates?).
[_] I want a quick run with good dps.
[_] I can only do this instance/raid with friends I know how to play with (good example is Halls of Reflection, I never did that heroic without my disk priest and 2 good dps hand picked before entering LFD tool).
