Thread: Threat and schools

    Default Threat and schools

    We have some potential changes coming up for threat generation. So we wanted to ask, which schools do you think would be natural tanks? We also welcome your suggestions for changes.

    So far warrior, Knight of Creation, and a toggle fir Dragons are what we've considered.

    Guardians have always seemed tanky to me. Granted, I've never played the school. Just going by ability list.

    I would add Guardian to the list also. One idea I had regarding Guardian was an ability to tank magical damage. Not sure if a mob could have separate targets/tanks for magic attacks vs melee, in a case with a mob that uses both damage types. I think if it could, then some interesting group combat and epic hunts could come out of that.

    Guardians don't have some skills other melee schools get and they're nature based which isn't always the most helpful.

    Knoc is something similar. other schools offer mastered abilities. no reason why now. Also Battlemage, and Chaos Warrior can be added to the (test these) list

    Edited to remove my statement about guardian wearing plate. My mistake, Ty Knossos

    I would say Guardian to. Maybe a remake of the class. Just the word Guardian means protect.
    Also paladin seems like a tank class

    I agree with Paladin and Guardian as well. I played with my friends, one of whom was pala, and he tanked very well for our group of three.

    Guardian definitely, though I'd kinda disagree with paladin, while it can tank really good, isn't it supposed to be a super DPS against Undead?

    One who strives to destroy all darkness kinda, so I'd say guardian yes, paladin no.

    Well, Paladin would have to be rather defensive in order to stand its ground against "the darkness," and retain their status as a leader of light. Paladin is definitely specialized for fighting against undead, and the definition being "a knight or heroic champion" or a "defender of a great cause". So while I wouldn't throw away it's sword, I definitely wouldn't throw away it's shield, either.

    Our Paladin friend is our leader when it comes to the undead; he protects us with his knowledge, not raw strength.

    Nobody's throwing its shield away AFAIK, just saying I feel it's good as it is, and doesn't need to become more tank or anything. :o
