Tank's Role

I was recently in a dungeon and the tank was on the scoreboard as not absorbing any damage. I mean 0 damage. This got me wondering about the role the tank does. The tank took a lot of damage though. Is it for damage taken or damage absorbed? When a Pali blocks, damage is absorbed, so i don't know how a 0 was possible.

    The scoreboard also told that a dps had healed a lot more than a good healer, only because the dps run with xuna or chicken.
    So give a f**** about the scoreboard

    i've seen a couple of barbarians "outheal" warlocks and paladins on the scoreboard due to their self healing with bloodletter+healing from insignia powers, so the scoreboard is kinda HAMSTER.
    But yes if you have enough resistances and don't take dmg, it won't show on the scoreboard as dmg taken.

    @rev tbh bloodletter now barely heals anything at all - if you drink one potion, it heals you more than ten bloodletters in a row. Outhealing a healer is easy though - in the healing scoreboard is included "companion revival", so if your companion has a tendency to stand in red, or even better: to jump down the cliffs, no healer can match such numbers. And suicidal companions aren't exactly rare.

    OP: absorbed 0 is actually easy for a tank - if you do not block, you do not add anything to the "absorb statistics". It is a bad tanking probably, but if the healer can compensate tanks inability to press shift, it is tolerable.

    Just keep that aggro red.....position boss to give other players combat advantage. Stay alive. Screw the scoreboard.
