When Wrath launched in 2008, the last thing I ever expected to see was a decline in the number of druid tanks. We'd just come off a successful expansion of not being Innervate bots, and I thought we'd capitalize on a new set of talents and skills in Wrath to hold our own against the brand-new death...

All right, people, today's question is for tanks. Yes, just the tanks. DPS, healers, you're excused. I'm glad you play World of Tanks too, but this also isn't about that. Just the tanks, please. So what kind of tank do you prefer? We've gotten a few archetypes that keep cropping up over and over....
