I suppose its possible for a war/sam to hold hate and in that sence you could call it a tank.

Now when I use war/sam which is extreemly rare I use my max damage equipment, and thats the last thing you want to do if your tanking because most of that equipment will also hinder your def/evasion etc. **** a Dark Night can hold enough hate to tank but that doesn't make it a good idea. I feel the same way about war/sam.

omfg. Thank you. Great post. I myself a lvl 50 war/sam have this same argument.

As chris rock would say you can drive a car with your feet if you want to. That dont make it a good fu??ing idea.

1. war<<<crap def traits/pld<<< good def bonuses
2. war/sam<<<DD, DD, DD, DAMAGE DEALER. ENOUGH SAID.
3. anyone with war/sam will have dd gear. why? cause thats what we are. we will not have tanking equipment. why? cause we are damage dealers.

I am not going to go further with this as there are many reasons you dont tank with war/sam. And anyone that has partied upt to lvl 40 with it will know.

I heard from someone well your the only tank class there is logged on. You take what you can get.

WTF is that. No NO NO you either continute to look or give up and say this in not the best party set up and I will only be hurting the exp rate of the party and possibly cause deaths.

I am done. Rate down if you like. But I will continue to decline all inventions to party as a tank. I hope I can find more support on this and phase out invites for tanking. If anyone else wants to list all the reasons that we are bad tanks please do. I am not wasting anymore time explaining something that by the time your at least lvl 50 you will already know.
