I think we should compile a list of events we use Paladin for.

A list describing everyone's "backgrounds" would be nice to have in a list of would be a nice resource for people to have. I think it would be really helpful to know know what events posters attend on Paladin to have built their advice upon.

Thread's a good idea. Unfortunately for me I took up RDM/NIN tanking shortly after learning that being a shield ninja wasn't very fun. I've tanked more with that than with PLD with great results.

I don't do End Game anymore, nor was I very active in it, but this is what I've done.

Spiddster
Lakshmi
------------
Dynamis (All)
Sky (All)
Ground Kings (Behemoth, King Behemoth, Fafnir, Nidhogg)
Wyrms (Vrtra, Vrtra's adds, Jormungand)
Cerberus
Khimaira
Hydra

Aside from that, I've done lots of smaller things like pop NMs and mission NMs. Although I don't really know if it counts, my favorite things to "tank" are the Prime Avatars, even though I do them all solo so I'm not really tanking for anyone.

You're doing fine. Once you can tank all the sky gods well, you can tank pretty much everything else well too. Most big scary HNMs are actually pretty easy and you rely more on your support than you do on actual tanking skills.

All you really have to do is count to 3, and do stuff for hate when you still have shadows.

This ^, youd be surprised how easy they can be once you have slow on them if applicable, or paralyze. Nothing makes HNMs hard more than crappy support.

This ^^

Just be smart with what you've got, I just watched 2 Aegis PLDs tanking Cerb (while mining for Khroma) and neither one ever used Shield Bash, not once. (And they didn't Stun 5 Gates of Hades (Stunner nor the PLDs), it was rather funny).

But yeah, once you're used to tanking anything like Sky, you can tank anything with good support behind you.

Its one of the funny things about FFXI. You see people tank sky, and you go "thats a good tank!", then you watch them tank tiamat, and go "thats a good tank!", and really its the support they should be cheering.

Any idiot can go out and buy a cure cheat set to have easily capped hate. Any ****** can count to 3. A good support team thats in sync and on the point is a treasure thats hard to find, because that alone will push you to being able to take on bigger monsters.

I've actually watched linkshells that had very competent tanks (I thought, watching them and talking to them afterwards), that completely sucked and could barely handle things as simple as fafnir, because their support was absolutely terrible.

Appreciate your support people.

That's my point. I don't tank sky gods. I don't have an HNMLS. I haven't really done anything even remotely related to endgame because I'm just not interested.

On the other hand, I appreciate support people, even if they're total strangers. I did find myself once going head-to-head with Jagidbod's Warmachine during a Campaign battle at Vunkerl Inlet. I was the only one I could see tanking it, but I had probably 25 people casting cure spells on me. I went down eventually, but it bought enough time for more people to show up and take it out.

Sky- all
Sea- all (no AV)
Dynamis- all
Limbus- all
Assaults- all
Missions- all
Nyzul- all
ZNMs- T1-4(Tinnin only so far)
Einherjar- T1-2
HNMs- all wyrms (except for Bv2, we zerg) 3 kings (NQ+HQ) 3 ToAU hnms, -Sandworm +Ixion
Starting SCNMs tomorrow night lol


And yeah, support is what makes or breaks a tank. You can solo tank khimaira with good support, or have 3+ tanks and wipe with bad support.

I tank mostly 6 man events because I play 1 day a week with my static and that's it pretty much.

6 man tanked:
First Lieutenant assaults (every Assault for that matter)
Nyzul Bosses (all)
CoP mission event fights (all pre nerf :p)
Every Mission boss (ToAU, Windy, RoZ).
Too many BCNMs, KSNMs, ENMs, and quests to list - incl. Requiem of Sin 10 bajillion times ($*@% you X's Knife)...
Genbu
Random low-man Limbus "bosses"
Just starting ZNMs - seems like it'll be very fun to see how many we can beat just the 6 of us.

Larger events I have tanked:
Dynamis (incl. Beaucidine Boss, Dynamis Lord)
Limbus (Omega, Ultima)
Bahamut (just v1)
Einherjar (not Odin yet)
