It’s a frustrating time in World of Warcraft, at least if you play a DPS class. Any time you get into a queue for a random as DPS, and even to a lesser extent as a healer, you are in for a long wait. On many servers getting into the random instance queue can mean an hour of wait time to get a group as DPS and about 20 minutes as a healer. Sign up for a heroic and it can be significantly longer. However, if you sign up as a tank you are in instantly. Why?
With 4 different classes that are able to tank, you would think that there would be many tanks around. There are hardly any though and that’s why the queues have reached epic proportions and many players are getting extremely frustrated. Here I look at the many factors that I believe play into the disappearing tank issue and a few things that may help get some back into the World of Warcraft.
