LF Tank & Healer

I was just reading through a post on Clockwork Gamer about how almost all MMOs have a healer class that is required for any significant group encounter in the game. The end of the post really sums up the frustration that I have with Warcraft.

As much as I love playing the healer, I like the idea of a world without healers - where any group of players can form a group. Oh sure, some groups might be more efficient than others, but that doesn’t mean 5 players are sitting around waiting for 40 minutes till they can find a “healer” or a “tank” of the appropriate level.

I'd go even farther and say that requiring 5 players for an instance is too rigid also. I usually have small, unpredictable amounts of time to play. Trying to round up a group of the right mix of classes from my guild in a short amount of time is usually difficult.

I'd love it if I could just jump into an instance with 1 or 2 other guildies. I think I'd have a lot more fun than just running around doing daily quests or the drudgery of leveling my alt characters.
