    First Knight's tips on tanking

    Post by Daevor on Tue Apr 07, 2009 8:45 am

    [14] @ Mo : as you pull, you have to hit the mob
    [14] @ Mo : to force it to follow you and if the cleric happen to heal, reduce the chances for them to get aggro
    [14] @ Mo : there is 3 skills that we can cast on the run
    [14] @ Mo : the 2 debuffs and kick
    [14] @ Mo : for small groups in TR it's perfect
    [14] @ Mo : you run to them, tab one + hit, tab other+hit, gather them round
    [14] @ Mo : deva them
    [14] @ Mo : and THEN only, you mock
    [14] @ Mo : you keep tabking and hitinh
    [14] @ Mo : no staying on one mob
    [14] @ Mo : always switch target
    [14] @ Mo : deva as much as you can
    [14] @ Mo : and kick and mock too
    [14] @ Mo : best way to place yourself is away from the cleric
    [14] @ Mo : keep your eyes on the party
    [14] @ Mo : and see the first to gain aggro, kick the mob back (or mock or whatever is available atm)
    [14] @ Mo : it's like being a cleric, but the harder, is to position yourself in order to see when the mobs stray away from you
    [14] @ Mo : with time, you'll know your tanking capacaity time, that is when you'll loose it
    [14] @ Mo : but in TR, you usually lose it (and that is nearly inevitable) as the mobs are on the verge of dying
    [14] SlasherTheSlayer : *scribblin' furiously*
    [14] @ Mo : use your demo skill too
    [14] @ Mo : it's kinda useful, and has a small aggro taking

    [14] @ Mo : I usually do : deva + mock + demo, then tab all the mobs while hitting them

    [14] @ Mo : lol!
    [14] @ Mo : buhbai
    [14] @ Mo : Your goal as a tank is not to kill
    [14] @ Mo : it's to hit and kick each mob enough to get them interested in you
    [14] @ Mo : the DDs will do all the killing
    [14] @ Mo : and remember
    [14] @ Mo : a DD really go wild when they feel that the tank will keep aggro
    [14] @ Mo : show them that you keep it, and they let it loose
    [14] @ Mo : and THEN, it's heaven *drolls*
    [14] SlasherTheSlayer : *scribbles and circles that point*
    [14] @ Mo : I loved my TR levels
    [14] @ Mo : -.-

    [14] @ Mo : oh, and when tanking, always use the shield
    [14] SlasherTheSlayer : k, I got it all.
    [14] @ Mo : I saw DD fighters tanking in TR with axe
    [14] @ Mo : showing off
    [14] @ Mo : and dying Rolling Eyes\14:46:34] @ Mo : 1h is better as you can kick faster if all your skils are in CD
    [14] @ Mo : more agrgo keeping
    [14] SlasherTheSlayer : Yes ma'am.
    [14] @ Daevor : *nods*

    [14:47:51] @ Mo : It's the technique UAE passed down to me
    [14:48:00] @ Mo : I spend hours in TR training it
    [14:48:08] @ Mo : it's hard work ._.
    [14:48:18] @ Daevor : The force is strong in you.
