    Oddly enough, nope.. I can parse just as well while tanking as when I'm not tanking. I get interrupted when I get knocked around, or when the mob uses an interrupt, something a fighter wouldn't have to deal with, but this is pretty rare.

    Having the advanced combat tracker mini-parse window open is like having a ghetto-LU51(52?)-hate meter. If you're holding aggro through sheer dps, as long as you're on top and nobody is rooting mobs, aggro is yours. (This isn't taking into account transfers and hate gains, they make it even easier)

    Working out a slightly different spell order in order to stay on top of the parse from start to finish of the fight is key - overzealous spike dps classes beware, if you go crazy on incoming, and I don't, you may pull aggro :!

    Wizard VP 2set in combination with all of the dispersion gear and a templar makes them tank hell of easily for heroic content and almost all OT duty in raids.

    One of my guild's Coercers has tanked the majority of the TSO group content content including Crucible/Sunken/Fabled City ect. Running him with a Temp/Defiler it's really quite easy. I think he just needs to tank the Guk zones and Varsoon now 0.o

    let me quote an inqui, i tanked for last time:

    "It's definitely easier healing you than some random pickup tank and moreover aggro is where it should be."

    i don't usually tank, but it's an easy choice between a pickup tank or doing it myself...
