We might get TWO buttons?

I'd like to point out a blue post by Ghostcrawler that I came across...

Yes, a lot of the focus of the post is warrior tanking, but there's some other aspects thrown in.

The part I'd like to point out is this:

3) There are differences in how tanks generate AE threat, and therefore damage. Warriors are jealous of the DK and especially paladin persistent area-based damage, and the others are jealous of the warrior's burst AE threat on incoming adds. Druids are jealous of anyone with more than one button.

For the love of Elune, yes, please, give us something else we can use instead of just spamming swipe and hoping our gear is strong enough to out-threat everybody else with it.


  1. Heh, it's nice to know that I'm not the only one having this issue tanking in AoE pugs. :P

  2. For the love of God, yes please give us a Chuck Norris round-house kick. That'd rock.

  3. I commented on this in a party the other day and got a rousing round of "other tanks wish they could spam swipe" and "druids are so op" in response... we had a good laugh and proceeded to faceroll the instance.
