@ThisguyJake I think the problem extends to all non-bear & crimson tanks atm.
Problem is with Meta, Mana Forged, Parry tanks even .... they're just working their asses so much harder to make anything work and be viable!
Between insane gear dependency, a lack on RE's to support, and a talent pool selection that's only viable to a certain extent .... this is just the state of the game
Leveling is fine, but the second that first mythic dungeon happens, it's very clear how much further back all tanks are that aren't bear & crimson.
(this is coming off a week of really trying to perfect a manaforged tank. The frustration is real )
