View Full Version : I've got a few Q's

12-16-2009, 12:16 AM
ok i am currently downloading the game and had a few questions that i was wondering. This is not my 1st MMO i have played a few others and wanted to see how this one compares. question 1 is which class/race would be best to become a "Tanker" and where would stats points be allocated for a tanker. Another qestin is does this game have stat requirements to use gear I.E. to use a sheild i need 5str etc

thanks in advance

1.A "tank" can be multiple things in DDO,a DPS character is called a "tank",so is a meatshield,but if you mean the latter then Fighters are usually a fair choice for everything while Paladins have the advantage of having higher Saves so they don't get destroyed by spells.

2.There are no stat requirements,only level and Race requirements(which can be bypassed by a high enough rank of Use Magic Device),though there's also proficiency to take into account,a Sorcerer for example can only use "Simple" weapons,a Greatsword would give him a -4 to-hit if he attempts to use it.
