There's still a lot of QQ about tank shortages. DK's were supposed to change that with our ability to tank and dps in any spec, right? So long as a DK is around you don't need a Warrior, Pally, or Druid.
In my grand sample of two Death Knights I know including myself, one was a tankadin and I was a bear. Net tank gain = 0.
Not only that, we are both working hard to find the magic 689 defense rating needed to be uncritable so we actually can tank. It's not like my bear where I could put 3 talent points in survival of the fittest post 3.02 and be good to go. I'm so glad I dropped all that coin on my Guardians Alchemist Stone. Damn it would be nice if that was bind to account, +57 defense rating sounds sweet right now.
So I've posted a second poll to see what role your former main was that you gave up to become a DK. My guess is most, DK tanks were tanks before. DPS may be a bit more varied. Just as it takes a special type of player to be a healer, I think it takes a special type to tank.
After all, who wants all that responsibility in a game.
