So! I know it's not much, but I got to level 50 last night! Go me! First time I've ever had a character at 50. I'm rather proud of myself! Now I just have 20 more to go!
...to bad my game time ran out this morning. :( Not sure when I'll be able to reactivate it, lol.
OH, quick edit, just because this quote:
Quickly realized why we are called tanks, without ranged support we are
made me do some thinking.
You know, in the real world, tanks are long range masters. Hell, at extremely short ranges (think, MELEE range), they're actually sitting ducks. You get in close, you can get inside their minimum range, and then all it takes is a couple of well-placed explosives and the tank is dead. All that armor does is protects them from ranged small-arms.
So, in all honestly, TANK is an inappropriate term. Things like 'Damage Sponge' or 'Meat Shield' are more appropriate. We need to change our terminology. Maybe 'Aggro Magnet.'
This being said, wouldn't a Mage in light or medium armor be more like a tank? Massive firepower at range, and a decent ability to soak some minor ranged damage, but up close it's squished? Or maybe something like a Hunter (WoW-wise)... they can wear leather armor and use bows or firearms... Aren't they more like tanks? Edited, Jun 23rd 2008 10:27am by TheRogueX
