May 9th 2009 11:37AM Why are people saying "the block value is better" on those other shields? Block value SUCKS a basketball through a hose. Expertise keeps you from being parried by bosses, and hit lets more of your threat generating attacks connect. Also, defense rating provides almost exactly the same ammount of avoidance as dodge does, and (and!) gives shield block rating. Wall of Terror is a trash tanking shield compared to this monster!

Sep 13th 2008 8:35PM THAT was one hell of a good post. I'd call it easily the definitive "this is how it is" post about tanking, and I wouldn't say that lightly. I especially appreciated: "And, while most tanks won't want to admit it, this also acts as a check against tanks' power and ego; someone else can do your job." Just as you said, tanks hate to admit this. I have been an off-tank, a main-tank, and a almost-not-in-a-guild-at-all tank. And I've been a jerk. A few times I've weilded [Power of the Complaining in /O Tank] to get stuff. I've forced other tanks out of the guild.
Recently, my computer has died, and being a penniless college student, I've been rumaging through dumpsters and praying fervently for one to appear. In my abscence, the 2 tanks who were my off-tanks have had to take over. And they've done ok too. Not that I'm not anxious to return, but it's really been an odd experience to realize that, I might be a good tank, but I'm not the best tank out there :)
Thanks for this post, I'm genuinely impressed
