whats with all the need *wf* tank for vod esp hard/elite now? The thing I don't like is they take a wf tank with no damage mitigation or self recon at all. Its a fricken pain being the one reconning em esp on hard/elite man....... going to cost pots esp if your the only one or theres two of you, even had vods where 3 of use 1 bard, sorc, and wiz sweated to keep a guy up, i even had to remove curse, quickly try and get a blue bar cure spell off before he gets recursed while the scroll was on cool down.......... because it got that close at times esp when the casters had their hands will with other things.
I remember asking a leader for a hard vod if he had a tank with any damage mitigation......... well hes a wf barb with 900 hp and a esos and redscale....... sure the red scale is 10 extra resistance from fire........ but I dont really care if he has a esos or not......... I would take a toon without a esos and a 80 odd ac over a toon with a esos and no damage mitigation whatsoever.
Are AC tanks or sheild blocking tanks that rare? Ive even done it on hard with a wf paladin he didnt have all his ac gear only about 70 AC but he sheild blocked and it was a lot easyier than Esos barbarian and his epic red scale docent. It doesnt even have to be a high HP or traditional tank, ive done it with ranger and had no problems, seen other people on their rangers........ lower hp monks 500-600 hp range no problems. Surely theres not such a shortage of these types of charactors that we always have to resort to 0ac 0 damage mitigation *tanks*
