    Every tank can clear everything in the game just play what you find fun.

    We think we can't pick a class for you.
    Since you don't play on a high level, it doesn't matter at all - pick any you like.

    I never understood why people ask what is best. That is gauged, generally, based on spreadsheets and the TOP TOP tier players. The people that ask don't play at that level so the potential of ever getting that character to that playability is about 0%.

    Unless you are in a top 10 world guild, play what's fun for you or whatever your guild wants.

    Particularly with mythic+, this just isn't true. Tanks tend to vary widely in utility and strength. Picking the right one means you're going to be a lot more successful than if you pick a bad one, on any level of difficulty.

    Sometimes picking the tank with solid utility is actually more impactful on a +5 mythic+ than it is on a +15, because the players you're playing with are just worse, and it's nice to play a character that's more self reliant. Good example of this was necrotic in Legion - if you played a tank that could kite on its own, the affix was no problem, but some tanks needed help from other players. Most groups adjusted to this by just taking the tanks that could handle it solo, so your choice of class basically determined your destiny.

    Guardian gotten better in 8.2, but its still not as good as it was in Legion. But we were also the best tank in legion for all of the expansion IIRC.

    ...And yes, playstyle is still very boring if you care about that.

    No tank will ever catch up to monks for the average player.

    How stupid 85% PASSIVE avoidance can be, was last week the MEME on twitch. Brewmaster tank DCed in a 23+ key and the group cant wipe, because the stupid passive tank took forver to die. Its hillarious because its so stupid.

    If you dont want to improve yourself and would like to play a failsafe tank, brewmaster it is.

    DK appears to be very strong in Nyalotha. I imagine mythic+ will continue to be Warriors and Monks.

    It looks like Prot Warrior and Brewmaster are going to be top tier for M+ again. Warriors are dogshit broken in M+ right now, and if it seriously continues into 8.3 I may seriously need to main my warrior again lol.

    I read this with a grain of salt. Are you refering to Stagger, or their mastery? While Stagger is, and has been extremely powerful since it's inception, in it's current form a DC Brewmaster should melt after roughly 7-8 seconds when both their Stagger runs out (Compare to MoP days of being able to get 2 minutes of 100% uptime on 100% stagger coverage with the ability to cleanse it whenever they needed to 4 times in a row), and without cleansing their stagger (Note that reducing more then 75% of their stagger is resource intensive and can result in Stagger failing to be kept up 100% uptime, at which point they get hit like a truck) means that Monks should drop very, VERY quickly when DCd, especially compared to I.E. Warrior, where getting gargantuan amounts of block is NOT currently unrealistic.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    "Help Me Choose" type threads don't tend to produce much in the way of constructive discussion or debate. Check online resources and/or the class-specific subforums if you have further questions. Closing this.
