Simple rule. Doesn't matter what you're proud of, whether it's the second level or the level cap. Doesn't matter if it's the best weapon in the game or a mop. If you're proud of it and consider it an accomplishment, post it here.

I've steadily increased my ability in the tank role. Getting use to the usual points, such as positioning, marketing targets, and overall dealings with boss mechanics. Which I find, so far, a learn by doing strategy can be both exciting and fun. I've yet to receive complaints in the DF... so that in itself is an accomplishment!

In many many crowded Fates, I've been the one to hold hate. Makes me feel proud to get pummeled.


.... oh, and I am very proud to bypass the no neck, Body/head piece gear. Those do not look good in my mind.

haha that's great. It actually looks more fluid on a Lala. My wife is a female Roegadyn and that no neck gear just took away any femininity she had in game.

While attempting main story quest TItan with a random Duty Finder party, I managed to be the last survivor for the last 30 seconds or so of the fight. Some perfectly timed skills, the party was cheering me on in the chat log, and the final seconds of the fight I just stood up and just screamed in victory, haha it felt so good!

Thanks. Tanking Titan HM as a warrior is a tricky one to pull off. I don't know of any other warriors that have actually tanked him and downed him. If anyone gets to this point and needs some tips, shoot me up I'll help the best I can.

Oh, my FC will be starting coil tonight, hopefully that goes well!

I am going to watch a HM Titan video tonight and see what the scoop is. I can tell you anything I have tanked, the healers like healing a WAR. But I have all my cooldowns on macros so they are up and being utilized during the fight to maximize over the course too.

Good luck. It's completely doable, just tricky as warrior.

WAR is going to need a buff before it is all said and done. Paladin just has too much migration going on. That sucks because we are the only two tank jobs and already one is being shunned by the player base late/end game. I am not saying WAR can't do it.. it's just not doing it as well as PLD.

And I hit 50 WAR couple days ago. My latest accomplishment.

I'm in turn 4 coil as a warrior, as are other warriors. We're fine, if anything paladins need a slight nerf with Hallowed being the way it is.

Can't say I agree with you saying "everything is fine". Our damage migration mechanics are behind what a Paladin is bringing to the table as far as the general population is reporting. Perhaps its simple play mechanics.. a Paladin is "easy" to master. I should have elaborated on that further to begin with. Perhaps the problem is people are given a choice for those pesky bonus allocation points we've discussed? Smiley: lol

I would agree that the bonus point allocation is somewhat silly, but people enjoy that false-sense of choice. I'll reiterate what I said before, I think warriors are fine, if anything paladins need a slight nerf. Your point that paladins are easier to perform well is completely true, Warrior mitigation is way harder.

Not a false sense of choice when a choice can be made, and without issues. YOU may have issues with it... perhaps that is a personal thing, perhaps it's your party. And if the team behind you would rather you be a Paladin then it is the fault of the mechanics of the WAR job. Yes we both know it can be done, it is being done easier with a Paladin. Nerfing one PAL ability won't cover it.

WAR 50 and full AF obtained!

Since I'm waiting on my close friends to complete new dungeons, I'm on hold until we finish up the story (on Garuda now)...but excited to start on some gearing up content.
