Tanks doing 5K damage consistently need a freakin nerf this is bigger than a healer can even heal.

Even in full on WH gear a 7K heal is not very often, but consistently a Tank can do 5K damage?

How is this even fair? Tanks are supposed to take damage not be DPS.

Besides when you have Tanks that can out damage healers you get a Healers being shut down by a single tank.

Since when do tanks attack healers? A tanks role in pvp is to guard their healers and peel off enemy dps trying to attack their healers. Oh and most tanks use dps gear, as tanking stats are sadly quite useless in pvp, so if they are well geared then doing some decent damage is not unexpected.

He really didn't specify, and should have given us more specifics, but my guess is that he's probably referring to Juggs running a Rage spec in Soresu form.

Any mix of spec and gear that makes a Class OP needs a nerf!

If healers wearing DPS gear suddenly started healing for consistent 10K heals the uproar would be deafening.

But it is perfectly OK for a Tank to do DPS output?

This is very much a double standard.

Roles in PVP does not exist and proof is tanks wearing DPS gear with DPS output and Tank survival.

I do 5k easy on my jugg in tanks stance but then I rage speced, IT rather easier for some one to think a tank class that is roled as dps but in tank stance is actual a tank when they are not.

That's what they're supposed to do, but generally, they don't.
