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. ****, 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
