I started with Guild Wars as my first real MMO, playing as a Dervish, mostly. I always focused on doing damage and using monks to keep me alive. In the two months that I played WoW, I used a Paladin to tank.
Recently, someone asked me to come as a Tank to UW, so I slapped together a build that can keep me alive against pretty much anything except for Air Magic... But, shouldn't we just rely on our monks to keep us alive? And since it isn't possible to attract the attention of mobs, like in WoW (where you can taunt), is tanking viable?
