Does Tanking Size matter?

Her silver Nappy.

Yes, these are the same pants

But they kinda look like  a silver nappy. * ducks as gnome people throw things at me.

I did try and get them on my Tauren Warrioress just because I could,  but getting 3 warriors in a run and some bad luck with the drop meant 5 runs and no sexy pants for her.  It’s probably a good thing because I just would have posted more cow crack.

It’s terrible I treat my toons so.

As much as I love charging around with my little gnome tank,  it feels more like a zip then a charge.  Let me zip on over to that mob,  and zip on over here,  and it doesn’t really help that each time she gets hit she squeaks like a little mouse, and as a tank she is squeaking alot.

The Melee dps Step on me.

So overall ,  I do not feel like  a tank, and I think that’s important.  When I face down a massive boss,  I don’t want to be ankle biting at them, picking at their toenails with my sword. It’s a bit hard acting like you know what your doing when you look so passive, and innocent.

I want my roar to be real, and guttural.

My armour looks kinda wonky as well.  One boot is higher then the other,  one shoulder is higher then the other.  She looks lopsided in general, and now I sound like I am picking on gnomes.

She is cute to play, but I do not feel like  a tank.

    Gnomes with 2-hander are even more remarkable since most 2-handers are bigger than gnomes, and istead of swinging them, gnomes have to backflip to strike…

    It makes sense in a way. The boss is trying to kill the small, weak-looking thing first.

    I prefer to think of them as baby legwarmers.

    You’ve got a point. Knew there was a reason I never made a gnome tank… tanks shouldn’t squeak. That brings mice to mind, and mice would very much go splat if they were hit by most of WoW’s denizens.

    In your tanks defense…it’s very cold in Ironforge.

    picking on gnomes? but it’s sooo fun! They’re the only class that makes ankle boots look like CFMs (even lopsided ones) *grin*
    mind you, my pally tanking project has eyebrows so long that were you to knot them together it’d stop him from taking his helmet off. (they stick out through the visor). I’m sure all the mobs bashing the sh!t out of him are only trying to knock some dress sense into him
