A ranger (or shaman) tanking over a rogue isnít ideal. It if you want to increase kill speed itís the way to go.
I should clarify, I don't think a rogue should tank, its just there was the debate a few pages back that rogues die faster then rangers when they get aggro. I'm not so sure that is true.

Oh itís not true. Rogues are way more durable than rangers Iíll be the first to agree. Itís just lost opportunity if they are doing 120 frontal ďbackstabsĒ.

Iíd rather see a cleric load flash of light or chain root than heal a tanking rogue. Not that they canít, itís just they shouldnít have to.

Rangers take more damage by quite a large margin.
