You know exactly what I am talking about.
I'll go a bit further. The best tank in a raiding guild is almost always the off-tank. He has the roll of pulling mobs off of everyone. It is a much harder roll than MT. I was MT for a while but I could not stand it. Just standing there spamming one mob (even though it was big) was boring as hell. What pissed me off is the whole guild would say "ZOMG SO AND SO IS THE BEST TANK IN TEH INTRAWEB" yet that MT knows his job is vastly more easy than the off-tank who holds the raid together by keeping the squishied from being drilled.
