Too squishy to do the story quest atm with pistol blood so waiting for my friend thats a tank to play again.
    Think I did some builds mistakes, but oh well I had fun.

    Well, one thing I can tell you right off the bat is that you have a quantum brace active and a rocket launcher passive equipped :P

    And a crit focused deck with two passives that rely on afflicted state and penetrating hits. And no healing builder for when you have to run around and keep yourself alive :P And you could really use a hinder and impair in a transylvania questing deck ^^

    I hadn't unlocked the passive to quantum brace yet, should be there now :P as for iron maiden passive, I use it since my friend afflicts them so i dont need it. And to this point most units I have trouble killing is either ranged assult rifle or immune to hindered :/ **I have no idea myself what I was talking about

    From what I can see, you don't have any actives at all that use a second weapon! Having that second weapon for finishers will help a shit-ton.

    Planning on picking this game up soon. I would like to know if I went tanking in TSW - Will I kill mobs significantly slower than I would if I went dps? I think I will be going hammer, I tried it in the beta and it was really fun back then. Or is there a "dual spec" system so I can dps when i'm doing quests and tank in dungeons etc?

    I suggest you start as dps. You will need to get some gear and skills before going to dungeons. And once you are ready it will be easy to pick basic tanking skills, since all skills in inner wheels are very cheap
    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    Later on, with the right build, tanks can be even faster than dps to clear multiple mobs. With a good balance between survivability(some self-healing as well) and damage, I've seen tanks deal with 3-4 packs of mobs while I can deal with 1, maybe 2 at best. Though as procne said, at first you'd want to go some dps and once you get Q(quality)2-4 from missions you can start picking tank gear.

    I see. Is the hammer for DPS or Tank? I think I read somewhere that it's for tanking only, is that true?

    I really enjoyed playing with the hammer in the beta, shotgun was pretty fun aswell.

    Every weapon has 2 options in the trinity. One is always dps. Hammer is dps and tank.

    Plus no DLC in January.

    I swear TSW would be the MMO of all time if they just stuck to their original combat design which would of been the exactly same thing as TERA, but for some reason they couldn't pull it off.

    There are 4 "roles", the usual Tank/Healer/Dps and another called "Support". Usually you go one or a few supportive spells(They are usually group wide, such as increased crit, reduced damage taken etc.) and then dps. I believe cleansing is the support's role as well.
    As Zito said all weapons have 2/4 of these. Every weapon have damage as one of four, so you could say that all weapons have 1/3 roles, support-tank-healing.

    There is no such thing as dualspec. There's not really such a thing as spec either. You can swap your abilities around freely at any time, as long as you're not in combat.

    No DLC in January? Haven't seen anything about that. Source? Just so I know whether or not it's safe to waste my gm points.

    A lot of the work on the issues were coming out of the Montreal office, and unfortunately we know what happened there recently.

    Anyone on EU that has a "guild" or the likes that I could join? I used to play the game when it came out, but I only used one months subscription, and I didn't really play a lot. I'm gonna play some more since it's buy to play now.
