Tank Adventure

Hi there folks!


Would like to have your opinion on a tanking class for the following reasons;


1-I want to be able to solo stuff (I know there will be limitations, but i mean mostly have a relax time doing quests and if possible elites)

2-I want preferably a second class that would allow me to use the same set of gear. (I don't want to have collect a whole other set)


3-I don't need to be the "best" or the most "wanted" tank of the game.


4-Visually good looking tank, preferably one with a shield. (I love dem shields)


(Number 4 is more important to me than 3, and 2 more important than 1) :P


Share your wisdom please, as i'm all ears!
Many thanks! :thumbup:

only one choice meeting all your criteria: K/w

Oh, Okay. That's not a lot of option, i guess i should be happy.
Thank you Keath! :thumbsup:

A note of caution:

Whilst Knight/Warrior can equip Plate or Chain armour, a Warrior/Knight can only equip Plate until the level 40 elite skill is obtained. Only from that point on, can the Warrior/Knight equip Plate armour.

Thanks for the heads up Yrcanos! :thumbup:

In other words, until level 40 i still will need to swap out gears then. ;)


I guess i can live with that, starting very soon my almighty K/W. (Just waiting on the wife to finish up the char creation part) :P

Go for chain on both till 40 then plate on both. Doing so your requirement is met.

Excellent idea from KeathofDeath there. In fact, a Knight is stuck with Chain up until level 24-ish anyway since the lowest level of Plate items is around there.

Dwarfen champions can use talisman's with shield visual's!
But i'm not sure you will think of them as 'Visually good looking tank' when they are in shield form ( tho some people think dwarfs look better in shieldform ;) )


Another option as knight is also the Knight/Mage.
The K/M is the probably the best dps tank in the game after the ch/m when it wears mage gears, but when fully geared as a plate tank its probably the tank with most survivability while keeping the raid alive. :thumbup:

well have fun :)

K/p is imo the best knight tank. Has insane defence, aura, party dmg reduce, resolution absorb whilst giving party members deaggro.
