And totally agreed, WC trait should be changed to Percentages (5% at max tier). I think that's something that was asked in Beta too.
Also wouldn't be a bad idea to make a Passive for Wardens where they get +5% Parry when using a Spear, to get us in the 30% Parry game and to get the Spear back for tanking.
25/30/30 BPE is where Wardens should be since HD launched, imo.
I have heard both the BfE T2 trolls and durchest still pack quite a punch, but I haven't been a part of any raids in them since HD, so its possible that things are different there.
and i do tank durchest 2 times every week. with my dps gear. i dont run 3/6 mans really. and when i do i solo it. and usually run skraids with 2 people just to make it faster, they are pretty soloable too.
i dont do pvp i am a raider if thats what we are called and i am pretty happy with my warden. there is only 1 problem for me, desolation needs to effect more targets than 3 and i already posted a topic about that.
well, if you can not tank with warden right now, there is no way you can tank with a captain. guard is easy as i heard from my guard friends since they have force taunts but than again its all about skill. not your characters but your own.
in addition we havent give our captians a chance to tank since we have plenty tanks here, and if you can not handle durchest you need better heallers than.
and this situation is like this cuz they are very underpowered. i am not expecting to tnak durchest with dps gear when they fixed and upscaled npcs. but here and now if you are whining about warden you can not tank anything when they fixed it. and i doubt it will be cause of warden class or your own skill. just try to catch up the differences in your class.
I've played with good tanking Captains in BG, OD, BfE and there is nothing Wardens can tank better than them.
and yes healler works harder and i work harder than instance happens faster and easier. isnt that the point really? i can go tank mode. healler can work less. and who will win there? they gave us pretty nice dps and im not afraid to use it. its like being a mini but refusing to use rezz skills.
and durchest is probably the only example of that. and as you pointed out there are other raids where you need to damage the boss. last boss of bg for example. due to dots warden dps is very important there. where other classes are just looking at him you are ticking 8 to 10k crits. so you say it is useless?
Regarding using Assailment to tank the Wights, well you are missing the fun of tanking them all in melee without kiting and see them go down in no time with a couple champs in the group. If you want to speed things up even more, just pull them all with the extra Warg & Sorcerer, or even with 3 extra Armoured mobs on the top floor.
There are many ways of "speeding things up". One of them is the tank not dying. Another one is being able to make bigger pulls to make the most of the mad AoE classes have now. Another one is not needing constant attention from the healers so they can focus on other classes. Or not needing the constant attention of healers so they can switch to DPS (in Lieutenant fight, for example) which makes the overall raid DPS much higher than if I used DPS gear.
and we play with very few melee classes and as you know durchest doesnt kill itself. so i do the damage needed to be hit along with others. as long as im not dead what is the matter? i dont see my heallers complaining about that. and we are doing with quite smooth? is there a problem and i am not seeing it?
last night i had a chance to tank gotheron (OD last boos not sure if the name is right) in red traits. i did not intended to do that but forgot to switch back (was dpsing in the previous fight since a single guard can do it)
and i managed to hold agro for a while. was parsing 4k dps that might be the reason tho. and at the end guard's force taunt accidently hit it but it was close to end so he kept tanking and it went very well.
dps deals less damage tank deals less damage less threat heallers heal less and why do you even playing this game? not as a dps but even as a tank i want my dps to go all out since i can hold agro.
being good is about your team not about you.
