Why is Tanking in MMOs So Intimidating?

In my 28 years of living, I have given a good chunk of it to video games. Specifically, Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games such as World of Warcraft. I started at the tender age of 14 in 2004, and when I found out that the game consisted of three major roles for players which were tanking, healing, and damage, I knew I was at a crossroads. Tanking is a role where a member of the party...[Read More]
