Darne hasn't gotten into heroics yet, but I've done several pugs with him, and so far it hasn't been too bad. Since I was going to gear him up anyways, I just see this as a perk for gearing up a tank.

I was upset about the CtA rewards for a minute until I realized that the pets and mounts it drops are *already* in the game - not new ones. Then I was totally fine with it. ^_^ Of course, the reason tanks/healers aren't queueing up has nothing to do with the lack of rewards, but I guess this is the only stopgap solution they could come up with.

other solutions would require a bit more thought to make work, so it's entirely possible they're already in progress but nowhere near complete.

Me, I'd take longer queue times if it meant I didn't have to run with jerks. Give me pleasant, attentive tanks and DPS and I'd be happy to run heroics even if I got people who were entirely new and undergeared.

There really should be separate casual and hardcore queues. Most of the people who think they're more hardcore than the rest of the world are probably people I don't care to work with.

Maybe a mini-personality questionnaire, to find out what sort of experience the person is looking for (fast badges, upgrades, learning the fights on heroic, etc) and then dividing the groups accordingly.

while i realize it's probably just meant to be a quick and dirty solution, which will probably work for a short while, i think it's a really stupid one (and this is me talking as a dude with two warrior tanks)...

All i see this doing is causing more resentment towards fresh rookie tanks who don't know the ins and outs of an instance, thus driving them right back out of the queue...

While it's nice to have a different source of goodies, I'm fairly certain that making tanks feel more special and entitled is a good way to encourage even role counts in the dungeon finder. In fact, I suspect it'll exacerbate (oo, big words) the existing attitude problems.

Now... if every class was given a tanking and healing spec...

This is probably pretty accurate: Call to Arms!


Also, more cooking and fishing dailies are being added!
