I was wanting to play a tank or healer and was wondering what you think there will be less of?

From the looks of beta and all the old forum polls there will be a deficit of healers. There should be more tanks than healers, there might even be adequate tanks. Healers might be sparse, but I doubt that'll be a problem once they introduce Dual Spec, which is supposed to be added soon after launch.

Play a tank and the entire server will love you...
Play a healer and every tank on the server will love you.

Healers are usually the hardest ones to find. All the role polls I've come across showed healer as least played, then tanks.

I'll throw out the obligatory, "Play what you have fun doing most." Though the game play might surprise you after you've played a bit of each. I used to tank a bunch and now I'm going healer from based on what I've played on Beta as both Vanguard and Operative, though by a small margin and that I think there will be fewer.

wrong... you may end with alot of people playing a tank class, but actually tank spec'd? totally going to be far less tank spec'd folks then healers is way it has ALWAYS been in mmos of all sorts and i seriously doubt it will change anytime soon.

Both will be in shortage, because both require some kind of responsibility feeeling, something most people avoid by nature.
