Hi guys,

I've posted the first part of a series I'm calling 'Tanking 101'. The aim of the series is to give the reader a complete understanding of the mechanics, statistics and responsibilities required for tanking.

Although tanks will benefit the most from this, hopefully other players will learn a lot too!

On to the brainstorming: What topics should I cover?

My next post will be about the tanking statistics (as alluded to at the end of the post). I have some ideas of my own, but would like to know what you'd want to read.

Thanks!

I like the start! I don't know if you were planning to cover it or not, but I'd like something about hit. Hit it just something that accidentally ends up on my tanking gear and I never know if I have enough of it. Something about parry vs. dodge would be nice too, when to choose one over the other and so on. I used to have an avoidance macro for my warrior in TBC - does it still exist/work?

Are you going to cover non-technical stuff too? Like "the tank mentality", let's say? People will expect you to lead groups, so you have to be a little bossy; your mistakes will be obvious; the "when the DPS dies, it's their own damn fault" is not always true.

That's all I can think about right now... If I get any more brilliant ideas, I'll be back :D

Having different armor sets--stam, block, avoidance, etc.--and why

Avoidance, Hit & Expertise

Boss tanking vs. add tanking

Awesome ideas. I'm glad I posted this topic now - I had a list of articles to write regarding tanking, but didn't cover some of these. Cheers!

I'll get cracking on writing some posts :)
