The Daily Grind: What kind of tank do you like to play?

Eliot Lefebvre

All right, people, today's question is for tanks. Yes, just the tanks. DPS, healers, you're excused. I'm glad you play World of Tanks too, but this also isn't about that. Just the tanks, please.

So what kind of tank do you prefer? We've gotten a few archetypes that keep cropping up over and over. You've got the Wall, always, the class with the most hard mitigation and defensive cooldowns that just sits back and is unkillable and usually becomes the default. Then you've got the Dodger, slipping past blows in lighter armor, and the Sponge, who doesn't have a whole lot of mitigation or avoidance but has a huge health pool to chew through.

From World of Warcraft to Star Wars: The Old Republic, there are a lot of kinds of tanks. And there are some that don't even fit these archetypes or blend several of them together. So which kind of tank do you like to play?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
