    I didn't say needed.

    They're still a pulling class. And no, I'm not on TLP. Awful, awful guess.

    I didn't say it wasn't. In fact, I made that very clear in my post.

    Literally said this, yes.

    Monk's role in Live is DPS and speed bump for squishies. That's it.

    If you can't emergency tank, I don't think you know how to Monk.

    And I'm expected to pull in groups often as a Monk. Is it easier, if the tank is good enough or well geared enough (preferably both) to just run around, or swarm pull? Definitely.

    Expected to pull? Shameful! People don't realize what it costs to be a Monk......

    Emergency tank? Lol.

    I don't like pulling, but I don't know what your point is other than that
    If the tank dies, Monk is 99.999% of the time next on the aggro list, and expected to step up for the rez to hit and the tank to get back in there.

    pop an Earthforce or a Shaded Steps and that wipe won't happen.

    The kind of annoying thing about the modern game is that a lapse of attention will have you missing that button press, which I've done, I'm not perfect, but I've saved a lot of groups and, as I've said, at least half of a raid (and tooting my own horn, an entire raid reset or three) by being on the ball with that.

    Please excuse my satire.

    Of course Monks *can* tank. So can many other classes. My lol about Monk emergency tanks is that due to the aggro Monks can generate, Monks often wind up tanking if the tank misses a button press.
