Sep 25th 2011 1:00PM A little off the topic of hybrids but from my personal experience the largest barrier to lvl 85 tanking was gear. While I can get gear from playing DPS and rolling on it or buying it with justice/valor points its not the easiest thing in the world to know when your gear is ready to start tanking. Just ask any healer what its like to get a tank who is squishy or dies on the first trash pull and you have your answer as to why getting into tanking is difficult.
When i hit lvl 70 and lvl 80 i had nice full crafted sets that i could get from a blacksmith that provided all the stats that i needed to start tanking, but at 85 your out of luck, the tanking gear requires orbs that drop in heroics. Why not just have a entry level tanking set for max level that is easily crafted but not so great that you don't want to upgrade it. Simple fix that people at max level can go buy the armor from their local BS start tanking without the worry that there gear is to "squishy" for a random. Now all the new tank has to do is learn to play, not learn to gear and balancing stats that even with research on tankspot and elitist jerks can get confusing. But again, just my two cents.
Jun 9th 2011 11:32PM Yep, i can see it now, SWTOR release date announced, WOW announces Patch 4.3 Dance studio and new player character models.
May 2nd 2011 1:46PM Yeah, i can see how this would be a nice tool for people new to instances, just have to wonder how many groups will let you look at it before the boss pull. I can see it now, hold on guys let me read the info on this boss (tank pulls as dps is reading party wipes and group cusses out healer for reading and not healing).
