If anything, having roleplay servers is a good way to keep the ever-present RP crowd contained, just like PvP servers keep the hardcore warriors occupied. Different playpens.

It's a shame the demon form doesn't take cues from how the Herald looks, or allow you a color shift or something. Form-altering is a tricky thing. It was a problem back in the beginning of CoH, when every stone tank looked like a giant poo-monster, and you never got to see their costume.

Looks like they have their solution, though.

That picture is my desktop background.. If it looks as good in motion as it does in a screen capture then that could be a very very cool line of spells.

"seeing how rare tanks have become in most popular MMOs"

I'd love to see a breakdown of popular class archetypes across popular MMOs. I know the folks over at http://blogs.parc.com/playon/ have a bunch of data. Do you actually have some stats or is your evidence anecdotal? "Rare" is a strong word that suggests that tanks are few and far between.

Scott, its hard to come across "data" for something like that. Obviously you can obtain class data to determine what classes are being played. However, in specific regards to WoW, someone playing as a Warrior/Paladin isn't necessarily a tank. It depends on their spec, but the high end content in WoW requires a true tank, not a warrior using a 2hander/dual wielding, or a Paladin specialized at doing damage or Healing.

When most people talk/complain about the tank shortage, its generally from their personal experiences in difficulties finding tanks while seeing an abundance of other classes.
