Why tanks need mages.
Gnomeaggedon has a good post on why tanks need mages over on his blog: http://gnomeaggedon.net/2009/10/23/tanks-need-mages-because/
Tanks need Mages!
They don’t need us for healing admittedly, although I have popped a bandage on a tank before when we were the last two standing.
No, Tanks need Mages for the challenge of playing a Tank, we make life… Errr hmmm… Fun!
Yes, we do make tanks jobs fun. Without us they would be so bored, with only the lowly warlock trying to pull aggro. I look forward to Wingood hitting 80 and having to (try to) hold aggro off geared mages. And I always love trying to steal threat from tanks on Wingosa, good fun (course I know how to Ice Block, Mirror Image when bursting or Invis when actually too high on threat).
