I did quite a bit of paladin tanking through WotLK and CATA and got quite bored of just being a meatbag so i went dps for more fun in BG's etc during my time in wow. So i thought when i started TOR it would be best to level a dps character so i got my operative to 50, got him geared up, did pvp til BM and decided id try going back to tanking and see if the tanking is more interesting in TOR
and wow, im loving it, i rerolled on tomb of freedon nadd, (decided to goto the busiest server) and went republic as the balance is pretty good on that server reps/imps. My Vanguard(powertech equivalent) is level 32 now and ive had sooo much fun tanking with him in FP's and WZ's.
Tanks actually do decent damage in this game and have the mobility and survival to make them extremmely interesting to play.
So far loving the game, im not getting that compelling feeling im losing out if i dont spend every available second online and when i am online im having alot more fun than i used to in wow. The only thing i miss is the competitive endgame. If they would only give us a damage/healing meter that would appease me for now. I think the endgame is ok for now but not having any way to judge my performance and try and improve upon it quantitatively is annoying me slightly. I like the UI mods coming, scaling and moving parts of the UI about but think we need more customisation than that. Wish we could use addons like wow...
Ive gotta say leveling is so awesome....endgame at 50 with bm and having done all ops content apart from a few bosses on nightmare was starting to drag a little, but leveling an alt is keeping me busy just now. Im levelling a Vanguard and my brother is leveling a commando, were both 32 and questing together, doing FP's together and its so much fun. Playing with someone you know in enjoyable content is just great. I cant say ive ever had this much fun with WoW and i was a gm in wow of a semi-hardcore guild raiding 4nights/week 3hrs and killing progression bosses although satisfying were not as much fun as what im having now..ive got to say. Anyway back on topic, Are oyu tanks out there having alot of fun with the tanking in TOR?
