    I tank on a Paladin mostly. I would say I dont experience this but mostly I form my own runs and occasionally join call outs in zerg channels. I do understand at the start of combat changes aggro was harder, but since they addressed that tanking has been very easy as far as aggro. I know some boss mechanics have changed and tanks are not all up on it. Tanking is doable and can even be fun in the right group. When dps run ahead I do laugh and watch them eat dirt before taking aggro, though I do still run 3x gladiators so I am not slow.

    Can you explain?

    You love tanks, because they do not want any attention? They all think they are weak? They are exciting and smart?
    You hate tanks, because they want to much attention?

    What insights you want to show us?

    That tanks should not complain and should eat what we got? Maybe many of us are not able anymore to joke about what we got, because it is not funny.

    Not only that many are unhappy, no tanks even get ridiculed. To speak with one voice, melechest already wrote the answer:

    ahhh people, I am pretty sure TFSC is just having a joke, geez toughen up fellow tankers, we should be able to tank way more than a little joke or two !!! :)

    With all the trash talking we get and all the frustration we have, do you expect everyone to take something like this as a sarcasm? There is no context that shows it was meant as a joke. I dont see even a hint that this was a joke and not what he actually thought. Especially when there are people who come in such threads and honestly trash talk us.

    I have heard rumors from the troll lairs that you are automatically disqualified just for being a paladin.

    @gweddeoran#4924 I found @thefiresidecat s contribution to this "conversation" by far the most constructive. I would blame @finmakin for the derailment

    what is the title of this thread? seriously. re read it. and if I were a dev I wouldn't take it seriously starting there. it's the only reason I even looked at this thread because the title was so silly. I made my response a direct reply to the title and equally as silly.


    I am now officially changing my reply to why do you hate tanks to because they can't tank a joke. lmao

    I'm a terrible tank on my Paladin. Not much better on my Fighter, but I enjoy tanking on both toons.
    What is the problem please?

    The original post is littered with errors and the word “HAMSTER”. What led you to believe this would be a constructive thread?

    Original post even claims it’s not possible to reach all 90% in defensive stats 😂

    You argue from your whale bubble.

    This is most constructive:

    Tanks can go HAMSTER themselves.

    Breaking news:

    7 years old tank do not HAMSTER.

    Forte for a Justicar Palidan should be 1. Defense 2. Awareness. 3. Critical Avoidance.

    Up the companion powers from 3% to 10% awareness.

    @drago#3250

    It’s hard to understand what you are saying. How does this “whale bubble” make the ratings system different for me than for you?

    Thank you, I'd love more of those hints applicable to Mod 20.
    Hopefully those hard workers who are testing their recommendations will publish them soon.
    The wonderful videos available so far have been great, although I've heard they've put the AH price for what they recommend sky-high!!!

    You do not understand that you have a loadout for every situation. Maximum DPS, maximum Tank. STDPS, AOEDPS, whatnot. I never told I have problems. I told it is not fair and not fun. The group play is a competitive environment, else there would be no leaderboards. And the game is poorly balanced.

    I build for maximum DPS now and wait for DPS paragon for paladins. Thats all summed up and show all about tanks. Why I should spend any time for awareness gear etc. I have to build 2 loadouts, when DPS are fine with 1. Toooo expensive. These days you do not even get free favor runs at avernus for comp gear, that you can buy awareness stuff, but ofcourse the DPS want you to have full awareness stuff???? Reality is it is best to do it 4 HDPS 1 Heal. Yea super tank times. That is the reality. Better not start a tank.
