Reader comments – ahh, yes, the juicy goodness following a meaty post. [1.Local] ducks past the swinging doors to see what readers have been chatting about in the back room over the past week.
|Tanks, Wrath and crushing blows
MMORPGs aren't the new kids on the block anymore-and neither are their players. Readers gathered in a number of posts this week to toy with the topic of WoW's continuing evolution as a game. This philosophical bent was sparked an insightful analysis from Allison Robert on the state of end-game tanking.
Readers are gobbling up the fresh perspectives. Ghostcrawler clattered in from the surf to dub Allison's post "a pretty good article." Here on WI, Blizzard forum regular Karilyn added, "Karilyn approves the message in this post. I personally vote for either buffing DK physical mitigation and nerfing their magical mitigation though, as opposed to your suggestion. It personally seems easier to rebalance 1 tank to be in line with the other 3, as opposed to trying to bring 3 tanks to be in like with Death Knights."
Plenty more comments where these came from. Be sure to read the full analysis and let us know where you think tanking should be heading.
