Why don’t you all pipe down until you understand the reasoning behind using a 2h to tank low level dungeons.
Everyone complaining hasn’t got the slightest clue that us warriors use a 2h for a reason to tank lower level dungeons.
Let me simplify it for you simps.
- Rage generation. Damage = rage generation. 1h = less damage. Less damage = less rage. Therefore 1h = less rage. Less rage = less threat.
In this era of mongoloid DPS and “go go go” the dps don’t give us any time to build threat anyway, so our only chance is to try to out damage them while throwing sunders on the target. Doesn’t help that nobody focuses one mob either.
- The damage mitigation with a shield at low levels is abysmal. I mean up until level 35 or so I had a shield with about 500 armor on it. And I mean really, 500 armor? You’re gonna make a big deal about 500 armor?
Both of these reasons are also reasons leveling solo as a prot warrior blows.
So before you all keep whining about 2h tanks, understand there is a reason for it, and realize that if you’re not complaining about this, you’re gonna complain about us not being able to hold aggro and you getting nuked because we can’t generate enough rage to hold aggro on 4 mobs (especially without a real AoE threat generator).
All because you think you know everything and follow a belief that “every tank needs to have a 1h/sword”
Stop being selfish. It gets groups killed.
“Oh you’re a trash tank not equipping a shield with 450 armor for the extra 2% mitigation. Making me use all my mana every pull. Waahhhhhhh”. Shut up. At least I ask what the healer prefers before each run I do and actually most have told me to just go with the 2h.
Quit complaining and appreciate that we’re actually trying to tank for you.
