So I’ve switched mains.
Yep, for 6½ years man and boy I was a paladin tank. And I loved it.
I loved the sense of responsibility. The control I had over the flow of the fight. The make or break mechanics that meant a good tank could shine, whilst a bad tank would do nothing but wipe raids and frustrate. That sense of fostering a partnership with your co-tanks, especially those you raided alongside week after week.
